What is HOCl?

HOCl is the scientific name for Hypochlorous Acid. HOCl is a naturally occurring chemical that our body’s white blood cells generate to fight off infections, bacteria and inflammation.

HOCl is also the active ingredient in electrolysed water, which uses an industrial technology called Electro-Chemical Activation “ECA” to produce an environmentally friendly sanitising product.The ECA process uses electricity to change the chemical structure of salt and water by temporarily changing the properties of the ingredients¬† into a oxidising agent exhibiting antimicrobial properties.

HOCl is both non-toxic to the delicate cells in our body while being lethal to almost all known dangerous bacteria and viruses that threaten our health. So it has the strength of a toxic cleaner with none of the toxic side effects.

Produced at a near neutral to slightly acidic pH where the predominant antimicrobial agent is hypochlorous acid.  HOCl is a much more powerful oxidant than sodium hypochlorite (or chlorine bleach). When produced, it contains a maximum of 500 ppm free available chlorine (FAC).
