What is Hypocare?

Hypocare by Horseware® is a gentle cleansing spray that instantly helps to soothe irritated skin and provides relief from scratching, stings and insect bites. Its non-sting formula is safe even for sensitive skin.

A topical application that mirrors the body's own immune system, it works naturally with the body to help to provide relief from scratching, stings and bites, and to soothe irritated skin.

It's available in one easy to use bottle(250ml), perfect for keeping to hand for your pets and horses.

Why use Hypocare?

You can use Hypocare on any mammal to help maintain healthy and itch-free skin. It is safe if ingested, so you won't need to worry about your pet licking the affected area. Best of all, Hypocare doesn't sting. The formula emulates a skin pH, which means it works in harmony with the body.

Because Hypochlorous is a chemical that the body produces naturally, it is a non-toxic, non-sensitising, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral solution and is safe to use around eyes and other sensitive areas. Unlike antibiotics where overuse has resulted in resistance, pathogens cannot become resistant to Hypochlorous.

Hypocare by Horseware® contains none of the banned substances disapproved by the FEI.

The Science

The active ingredient in Hypocare by Horseware® is Hypochlorous acid, which is produced naturally by the body's own immune system. When a wound or infection occurs in the body, neutrophils, a type of white blood cell, are deployed to the site of infection. The neutrophils then engulf the invading pathogen and produce Hypochlorous acid which kills the bacteria.

Hypochlorous acid is between 80-300 times more effective at killing pathogens than hypochlorite or bleach. Although its disinfecting powers are unrivalled, it is kind to healthy tissue and has a skin neutral pH, so it won't slow down healing.

It has long been acknowledged that Hypochlorous is highly effective at killing a wide range of micro-organisms, is safe for users and has no environmental implications - unlike traditional chemical sanitisers or disinfectants. Until now, it was not possible to produce high strength Hypochlorous with a shelf life of more than a few hours.

"My horse could not bare me touching an irritated area on his skin. Using Hypocare three times a day for a week has made an incredible difference. Everyone at my yard now has a bottle. Amazing product." Erica Fenton
"Really pleased with results. I'd been disinfecting my pony's fetlocks by washing with hibiscrub, rinsing and drying (almost impossible as he is very hairy). He was getting really fed up with this - as soon as he saw the bucket he wouldn't stand still.
I tried Hypocare and the condition improved in a matter of days. It's so easy to apply so we're both happy." Mary Ford
"Marvelous product - itchy skin goes away, itchy ears stop being itchy.".
