Hypochlorous Acid: Nature’s Perfect Germ Killer

Nature’s Perfect Germ Killer

100% Safe. Non-toxic. All-natural.

About Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) 

Discovered in 1834 by the French chemist Antoine Jérôme Balard, HOCl is created when salt water is electrolyzed. Used in the medical field for more than 100 years, HOCl is a naturally occurring chemical produced by our white blood cells to fight bacteria and inflammation after an infection or trauma. Lethal to almost all known dangerous bacteria and viruses that threaten our health, HOCl is 100 percent safe for humans, chemical free, non-toxic and all-natural. Unlike liquid bleach (sodium hypochlorite), HOCl is safe. Even if accidently ingested, HOCl is completely harmless. Yet, it is 80-100 times more efficient at killing microbial pathogens including SARS CoV-2, MRSA and Pseudomonas Aeroginosa than chlorine bleach.

HOCl is used extensively in many industries including cleanrooms, food, beverage and received EPA-approval for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Electrostatic Application of HOCl

In a recent study performed by EMist, HOCL was applied as an 85 micron positively (+) charged electrostatic spray combined with routine cleaning. Outcomes proved that HOCl applied using electrostatic sprayer provided additional efficacy.
