Patients who have blepharitis or a similar lid-related condition might get help from a new  0.2% pure hypochlorous acid solution called Bruder Hygienic Eyelid Solution. Safe for long-term daily use, it contains no alcohol, oil, sulfates, parabens or added fragrance, according to the company. The spray application is soothing to sensitive skin and provides fast relief from dryness, and itchy,  inflamed skin, Bruder says.

The company calls it an all-natural, isotonic saline wash containing a pure and stable form of hypochlorous acid that works to support rapid and effective relief from dry eye, styes and red, itchy eyelids associated with conditions like blepharitis and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD); it’s designed to assist in the removal of foreign material and debris on and around the eyelid margins.

Hypochlorous acid, a bactericidal component of the immune system, has shown highly effective in-vitro efficacy against a wide range of microorganisms, helping to fight infection, reduce inflammation, control the body’s response to injury, and enhance its natural ability to heal.

Bruder Hygienic Eyelid Solution is available in 1 fl. oz. (30mL) and 2 fl. oz. (60mL) bottles. For more information, visit www.bruder.com.
