The Science Behind Theraworx Protect

Theraworx Protect HAC DiagramTheraworx Protect is the first known topical immunoactive that optimizes immune health by supporting the skin’s natural defensive functions, resulting in immunocompetency.

It starts with optimizing the stratum corneum, creating a thriving skin microbiome — the ecological community of commensal, symbiotic, and pathogenic microorganisms that exist within the stratum corneum. When the skin’s microbiome thrives, it allows the stratum corneum to serve its critical, protective functions.

This differs greatly from continued use of other antiseptics. For instance, in an IRB, randomized controlled study comparing Theraworx Protect to chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) in a repeated application testing model, CHG was shown to degrade the stratum corneum. Compromising the critical skin layer can be a significant factor when it comes to managing hospital acquired conditions.
