Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide, a chemical that appears as a colorless liquid, is used in a wide range of cleaning and personal care products, including hair dyes and bleaches, toothpaste and mouthwashes, bathroom cleaners and laundry stain removers.


Hydrogen peroxide is used as an antimicrobial agent and an oxidizing agent. It is also used as an OTC antiseptic to clean wounds. In personal care products, such as colorants and toothpastes, hydrogen peroxide works as an oxidizing agent, offering a lightening/whitening effect.

Hydrogen Peroxide is used throughout the healthcare industry and by consumers to clean and disinfect. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved use of a technology developed by scientific research nonprofit Battelle Memorial Institute to use concentrated vapor phase hydrogen peroxide in specialized equipment to sterilize used N95 respirator masks and other personal protective equipment worn by healthcare professionals treating coronavirus patients. This technology will help enable reuse of respirator masks that are in short supply.
