What is it? Put simply HOCL or Hypochlorous Acid to use its full name, is a weak acid that is quite simply one of the world’s best bactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal. It’s made up of three simple ingredients: water, salt and electricity! Its unique makeup makes it work fast to attack pathogens rendering them ineffective.
It works on bacteria, germs, fungi, viruses and it uses very similar ways of attacking these pathogens as the human body does essentially mimicking what our body does internally so not only is it very effective, but also a very safe and natural product. When you add to this its eco-friendly, hypoallergenic and pH Neutral (non-irritant and non-sting) you end up with quite a remarkable product. It’s so safe you can drink it but so effective it works better and faster than bleach or alcohol at killing germs, bacteria and viruses.
The really clever (but complex) part is in the production of it. Historically it had to be produced and used within minutes and on site. It had a very short shelf life. Hospitals and large production / food preparation factories used it by investing in expensive equipment. It was, and still is used, to disinfect & sanities in hospitals, dental labs, veterinary clinics, and also wash food & food preparation. You’ve probably had your strawberries or lettuce washed in it!
For the last 18 months we have been working with leading UK manufacturers who specialise in producing HOCl and advances in technology mean that now it can be produced in a much more stable way allowing for longer shelf life – up to 24 months. This has begun the revolutionization of HOCL and we believe we’re at the forefront of it.
Here are Pro-Copia and Medi-Protex we are using it on our new range of animal and human products. SanacynⓇ Advanced Pet Formula Antiseptic spray was recently launched and will be followed soon by SanacynⓇ Advanced Pet Ear Cleanser and SanacynⓇ Tattoo and Piercings Antiseptic After Care.
