Why is HOCL Safe?
Hypochlorous (HOCL) is a naturally occurring oxidant produced by white blood cells within the human body, acting as the main ingredient used by our immune systems to destroy disease-forming pathogens. Electrochemically engineered HOCL solutions replicate the HOCL produced inside the human body using organic and natural products. Unlike other harsh disinfectants currently used, it contains no bleach, alcohol, or ammonia. Therefore, it is safe for use in schools, daycares, dental and medical clinics, businesses and other public spaces.
HOCL Effectiveness and How It Compares with Bleach?
The cell walls of pathogenic microorganisms are negatively charged by nature. The negative charge of the pathogenic microorganism’s cell wall repulses the negative charge of the hypochlorite ions (OCL-) in bleach making it a weak disinfectant.
HOCL’s neutral charged molecule easily penetrates the cell wall, making it a very effective disinfectant. HOCL effectively penetrates slime layers, cell walls and protective layers of microorganisms (see below.) Microorganisms quickly die or are made non-functional by reproductive failure. HOCl is 80-100 times more effective and exceeds the disinfecting properties of bleach (a hypochlorite) by up to 300 times
HOCL products have been independently laboratory-tested and proven to be effective against a wide range of microorganisms. HOCL products have been tested to rigorous internationally recognized standards, and have proved effective against microorganisms including, but not limited to:
E coli, Listeria, Staph, Salmonella, C. Diff, Black Mold, Hepatitis, Influenza, HIV, Sars-CoV-2, Norovirus, powdery mildew, Ringworm, and dozens of other viruses, bacteria, and fungi.
