In order to be able to claim on the label of our Saline Wash solution that the product is “sterile,” the law requires that the product would have to be gamma irradiated. Gamma irradiation is a very expensive process, which is normally reserved for pharmaceutical applications rather than cosmetic products. Although the Saline Wash solution is not gamma irradiated, it is made in an FDA-approved facility using ISP water (a type of water used in cosmetic product manufacturing which is highly filtered and treated to remove bacterial and other impurities) to avoid any biological or inorganic impurities. Since our Saline Wash solution is packaged in a pressurized package, there is no possibility of contamination of the contents of the package either in storage or in actual use.
The solution inside the cans are made in an aseptic environment with no chance of contamination in the package, storage, or anywhere inside the solution regardless of sterility.
