Stalosan Basic is a new cost effective hygiene agent in powder form in the Stalosan product group.
The combination of low pH value and strong desiccating properties reduces the development of harmful substances and moisture in the stable environment.
The skin and mucosa/respiratory tract are protected by a sticky acidic substance, which is called sebum. It mainly consists of wax, organic acids and non-pathogenic bacteria like e.g. Staphylococcus epidermis. Sebum creates a hostile environment for the pathogenic bacteria preferring an alkaline environment.
Any damage to the sebum - for instance caused by alkaline products like ammonia, hydrated lime, limestone, bentonite or detergents, increases the risk of infections on skin.
Sebum normally has a pH value of 5 – 6. If the pH is above 8 the pathogenic bacterial growth increases.
Stalosan F can be used if a more broad-spectrum effect is required.
