Homeland Security Group International Partners With The Activ Group to Provide Microdine Antiseptic to US Military

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - August 13, 2007) - Homeland Security Group International (PINKSHEETS: HMSG) announced today that the company has partnered with The Activ Group, Inc. to introduce a revolutionary new non-alcohol based hand antiseptic for the Military and First Responders.

Microdine™ is a FDA Registered Class I Antiseptic and a Class I Skin Protectant. Microdine meets the rigorous requirements of the FDA, OTC Surgical Scrub Monograph, and is based on new discoveries in molecular chemistry. One application cleans and protects the hands for up to 6 hours and is resistant to washing off.

HMSG and representatives from The Activ Group have conducted meetings with military units and will begin testing the antiseptic immediately.

"This is a major breakthrough in antiseptic technology," commented Colonel Jeffrey Powers USMC (Ret), CEO of HMSG. This antiseptic protects the skin with one application like putting on a pair of rubber gloves. Microdine is currently being used at a VA hospital on the East Coast. This product is a breakthrough in field sanitation. Lack of water and high operational tempo makes it difficult for Marines and soldiers to properly prevent disease and infection in austere environments. Marines and soldiers often handle food without having the luxury of washing their hands. Microdine will provide protection from bacteria, viruses, and parasites, which can often take a greater toll on combat effectiveness than the enemy. A disciplined regimen of using Microdine will also help prevent many chronic problems such as those experienced by Desert Storm veterans. We also have an avenue to sell Microdine in military retail outlets. The market for Microdine is enormous. Bank tellers, medical personnel, food industry employees, casino employees, child care workers are just the tip of the iceberg. Microdine is one of several outstanding products that HMSG will be marketing for Activ," concluded Powers.

ABOUT MICRODINE

Microdine™ is a revolutionary hand sanitizing solution and skin protectant lotion. It cleans, disinfects and protects the skin from chaffing and cracking, while providing persistent antimicrobial activity for up to six hours. Microdine is a blend of 5 - 10% Povidone Iodine, an active antiseptic, 0.5% Allantoin, an active skin protectant, and other components, including Benzethonium Chloride, Nonoxynol-9, Triton-X100, and CHG, which are blended into a single emulsion that inhibits bacterial and viral cross-contamination and self-inoculation. On drying, Microdine forms discrete layers, which bond the films to the skin, enhance healing, and restrict moisture loss while allowing the skin to breathe and protecting the skin surface from external insult. Microdine keeps moisture in and keeps germs out. Microdine is manufactured and sold under the guidelines and laws enforced by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Microdine is FDA registered. National Drug Code Number 65123-761.
