HOCl is the Real Deal for Skin Care

I think most of us have now heard of Hypochlorous Acid, also known as HOCl.  Covid really placed it in the spotlight as an effective, but extremely safe, alternative to killing SARS-CoV-2.  However, it’s been around as long as the human race.  Our body’s white blood cells naturally produce it to fight infection.

That’s all great, but why is it safe for skin care and how should it be applied?

First, our skin has a pH of around 5 or slightly less, which aligns very well with HOCl.  In fact, it matches almost exactly with the pH of the HOCl skin care solution manufactured by Berkshire Corporation. Understanding and implementing an optimal pH is one of the keys to a superior HOCl product.  So, HOCl compatibility is excellent, which ensures it is gentle on the skin.

Second, as explained in The Dermatology Times and by various dermatologists, it has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties, which allows it to kill bacteria, expedite wound healing and repair the skin.  It also works well to prepare the skin for other treatments, as is noted by Dr. Sam Ellie, a board-certified dermatologist based in CA.

Third, it’s non-toxic and non-irritating and is the perfect solution as a facial mist and cleanser. It also allows other products, when applied after misting, to absorb more easily into the skin.

So, the next time you workout and have broken a good sweat, treat yourself to an HOCl face mist.  Simply spray a fine mist onto your face, allow it to naturally dry, and enjoy all the benefits it has to offer.

One last word and piece of advice:  look for HOCl facial cleansers that are not mixed with other ingredients.  Simple and pure is the better choice when it comes to HOCl, which will allow it to leverage its built-in efficacy and perform at its best.
