What is HOCl?

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is a naturally occurring oxidant that is produced by white blood cells within the human body and acts as the main ingredient used by our immune systems to destroy disease-forming pathogens. AQUAOX™ electrochemically engineered HOCL solutions replicate the HOCL produced inside the human body and unlike other harsh disinfectants currently used our solutions contain no bleach, alcohol, or ammonia and are completely safe for use in schools, daycares, dental and medical clinics, businesses and other public spaces.

HOCL Effectiveness

The cell wall of a pathogenic microorganisms is 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.

AQUAOX’s neutral Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) molecule easily penetrates the cell wall, making it a very effective disinfectant. HOCl effectively penetrates slime layers, cell walls and protective layers of microorganisms. 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 by up to 300 times

How does HOCl kill and how does it compare with bleach?
