Soopa Skin fits the bill with nature’s oldest disinfectant


Soopa Skin is a new skincare range that fits the all-natural vibe that resonates with so many consumers. Here’s what you need to know about it.

The latest research from market intelligence agency Mintel reveals that 73 percent of beauty product consumers are willing to pay more for a personal-care item that contains all-natural, ingredients. Hand in hand with this preference goes a desire to use ethically sourced, easily absorbed, “organic” products with transparent supply chains.

Enter Soopa Skin

Soopa Skin’s main ingredient is hypochlorous acid (HOCl). “Well, that doesn’t sound benign at all,” you might say. But HOCl occurs naturally in humans, manufactured by our white blood cells. Considered one of nature’s oldest disinfectants, this ingredient was first identified in 1834 by French chemist Antoine Jérôme Balard.

Occurs naturally in humans

He recommended HOCl as an antiseptic for wounds, and it was used in both World Wars as an application for health problems ranging from gangrene and diphtheria to scarlet fever. Later came the discovery that HOCl occurs naturally in human neutrophils, a type of white blood cell. The benefits of HOCl appear seemingly endless.

HOCl is 80 to 100 times stronger than bleach, yet lacks its harmful properties, fumes, and residues. This makes it suitable to defend the skin against harmful bacteria, reduce redness, and sooth irritation. Formulated for both the face and body, the unique solution found in Soopa Skin is perfectly safe for people (and pets) of all ages, according to its manufacturer.

Breakthrough in beauty and wellness

For those working in the beauty industry and medical care, Soopa Skin is increasingly being looked to for its ability to combine chemistry with the power of nature, to arrive at a place of complete skin wellness.

“For this reason, it is being extensively stocked at salons to support the skin in a wide range of pre- and post-aesthetic procedures – such as microneedling, dermaplaning, chemical peels, microblading, and laser treatments,” reveals Soopa Skin director, Gary Hunt. “It’s also useful in general wound care, together with cases of acne, eczema, dermatitis, and cold sores,” Gary adds.

Soopa Skin to the rescue 

There are a variety of non-medically harmful, yet highly irritating skin ailments that people deal with on a daily basis – often finding little relief.

“A few applications for which Soopa Skin HOCl Rescue Mist is particularly useful are, for example, the itch you may experience on your skin when it comes into contact with grass (when working in the garden); and on your face after a haircut, or when you shave your beard,” says Gary.

“Spritzing the skin in such instances brings immediate relief. You can read additional testimonials from satisfied customers on our website,” Gary adds.
