What is Hydrogen Peroxide?

A colourless chemical, Hydrogen Peroxide is used in a range of personal care products, cleaning products and more. It can be found in antiseptics bought over the counter, toothpastes and mouthwash, bathroom, cleaners and as a stain remover in the laundry room. It’s used in some food products as a bleaching agent, too, and in an industrial capacity, Hydrogen Peroxide is used in water treatment plants. It’s a chemical that has undergone a range of safety checks and is only used in limited amounts depending on what you need it for.

What can Hydrogen Peroxide be used for?

As both an antimicrobial agent and an oxidising agent, Hydrogen Peroxide is a versatile product. When used over the counter, Hydrogen Peroxide can be a great wound cleaner and bacterial killer, and in personal care products it’s used to colour hair and in toothpastes to clean teeth. It can offer a lightning effect in both of these environments, and it’s a wonderful product used to clean and disinfect. You’ll find that Hydrogen Peroxide is used throughout the healthcare industry and during the pandemic, the FDA chose to approve technology that uses concentrated vapour phase hydrogen peroxide to sterilise N95 face masks.

Other PPE was sprayed with Hydrogen Peroxide, too, to ensure that those treating COVID-19 patients were as protected as possible.

In low amounts, Hydrogen Peroxide can be used in mouthwashes and rinses to ensure that mucus is removed and any irritations in the mouth are cleared up. Hydrogen Peroxide can also be used in your household dishwashers and laundry machines to remove mildew and mould, to disinfect cutting boards and countertops and even to wash veggies and produce in small amounts.

What to think about when buying Hydrogen Peroxide

Before purchasing hydrogen peroxide, you should consider the hydrogen peroxide uses and where you can purchase it from. Most households use it in products for personal care and cleaning the house, and you should always read the manufacturer’s instructions before you use them. This is for your safety and the safety of your home, too. There has been extensive testing performed on hydrogen peroxide, especially in a teeth whitening capacity and for personal use to ensure that you are as safe as possible. Less than 6% of hydrogen peroxide in personal products is considered to be safe, and the FDA has tested this as well as testing the effects of hydrogen peroxide as a food additive. Hydrogen peroxide has been placed on the GRAS – Generally Recognised As Safe – list. It’s safe for use as an oral healing agent and in its diluted form with only 3% of hydrogen peroxide and they are safe for household use. Hydrogen Peroxide in higher concentrations can be hazardous, and this should be handled properly in these cases.

Most of the time, the higher concentrations of hydrogen peroxide are found in industrial settings, in areas where bleaching textiles or paper takes place. Over the course of an eight hour shift, the National Institute for Occupational Safety has determined that the permissible exposure limits include one part per million, as inhalation in poorly ventilated areas can be detrimental to your health. With only 3-5% hydrogen peroxide, it’s not easily absorbed through the ski
