When saltwater is electrolyzed, it produces an anolyte solution that consists of >99.3% water, chloride salt and Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl).

HOCl is a naturally occurring chemical that is produced by our Neutrophils, or white blood cells, to fight bacteria and inflammation after an infection or trauma.

HOCl provides a unique power to eradicate dangerous organisms, whilst not causing harm to our cells. It is one of the only agents that are both non-toxic to the delicate cells that can heal our wounds, while being lethal to almost all known dangerous bacteria and viruses that threaten our health.

In early years, the overwhelming impediment to its widespread use was a lack of shelf stability. HOCl is the most reactive ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species). This means it reacts very easily and will quickly turn back into saltwater.

HOCl solutions have been used for over 100 years. In the early 1900’s during the world wars, HOCl solutions were used for disinfecting medical equipment and dressing wounds. However, until recently, HOCl solutions would only remain stable for about 90 minutes before turning back into saltwater.

We have perfected the technique to stabilise it, and ensure the PH balance is just perfect.

HOCl is now manufactured in a way that allows the solution to be stable for much longer than previously available. This has allowed for the product to be carefully bottled and made available across the world.

Although producing HOCl solutions is not challenging, stabilizing the solution is very difficult. In fact, our quality ingredients and unique processes produce an unmatched product. Furthermore, we do not add unnecessary ingredients to stabilize or preserve our product stability.

WHAT IS HOCL

HOCl is the scientific formula for Hypochlorous acid, a weak acid similar to that of a mild citrus juice.

HOCl is made naturally by white blood cells in all mammals for healing and protection. HOCl is a powerful oxidant that is effective against invading bacteria, fungi, and viruses.

How is HOCl made?

Generating HOCl by running electricity through a solution of saltwater was discovered in 1970’s.

HOCl is now used in healthcare, food safety, water treatment, and general sanitation and disinfection.
