NASHVILLE, Tenn. & EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PhaseOne Health announces it has provided PhaseOne Skin and Wound Cleanser (PhaseOne) as part of a $3 million donation of medical supplies to Ukraine in partnership with the nonprofit HelpingUkraine.us. Formulated with NovaBay Pharmaceuticals’ (NYSE American: NBY) patented, stable hypochlorous acid, PhaseOne (0.025% hypochlorous acid solution) is a proprietary wound care product used for cleansing and irrigation as part of surgical procedures, as well as for treating certain wounds, burns, ulcers and other injuries. PhaseOne is distributed in the U.S. by PhaseOne Health.
“We are proud to provide PhaseOne to aid in the treatment of wounds and burns suffered by Ukrainian soldiers and civilians as their conflict with Russia enters its second year,” said PhaseOne Health Managing Director Kristopher Perkins, who traveled to Ukraine to train local medical professionals on proper storage, use and application of PhaseOne. “I’ve seen firsthand the challenges that Ukrainians are facing and am impressed by their spirit and their ability to cope with the horrors of war. We are honored to play a small role in helping those who have been injured.”
“It is a privilege to have PhaseOne made available to Ukrainians, whether they are serving on the frontlines of battle or are being impacted by the relentless bombings of civilian targets,” said Justin Hall, CEO of NovaBay Pharmaceuticals. “PhaseOne is ideal for use in Ukrainian medical facilities due to its stable, potent, broad-spectrum formulation. It is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing to skin and new tissue and can be used on wounds as frequently as needed. Through our proprietary manufacturing process and amber glass bottle, we ensure the safest, purest, most powerful hypochlorous acid wound cleanser on the market.”
About PhaseOne Health and PhaseOne Skin and Wound Cleanser
Based in Nashville, PhaseOne Health licenses, markets and distributes PhaseOne, a registered trademark of NovaBay Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Laboratory tests show that PhaseOne kills the bacteria that infect wounds to neutralize the toxins that impede healing and destroy healthy tissue. Hypochlorous acid is part of the body’s natural immune system that combats acute infections and promotes the healing of chronic wounds. Among the benefits of hypochlorous acid is its ability to penetrate and kill biofilm, which represents a significant barrier to wound healing. PhaseOne’s pure hypochlorous acid formulation is without the toxic chemicals that may be found in other wound care products.
The effectiveness of PhaseOne is independently documented in the study “Comparative Antimicrobial Activity of Commercial Wound Care Solutions on Bacterial and Fungal Biofilms” (Harriott, PhD et al), which was published in the peer-reviewed journal Annals of Plastic Surgery.
