What is Hypochlorous?

Hypochlorous (HOCI) is a naturally occurring compound in the human body that is produced by the immune system in response to infection.  As such, the human body is protected from damage by hypochlorous, making it an ideal disinfectant that is completely safe for use in agriculture, food preparation, food handling, all surfaces like baby & pet surfaces. 

Hypochlorous (HOCI) is a broad-spectrum liquid disinfectant that is organic, nontoxic, biodegradable and safe.  Hypochlorous is registered with the United States EPA to kill coronavirus (List N).  Most commonly used disinfectants are toxic to the skin and lungs – HOCI is safe for human contact.  Hypochlorous is one of the only coronavirus killing disinfectants that is effective and nontoxic.  Hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific studies repeatedly show HOCI to be highly effective at eliminating pathogens including the coronavirus.

CleanSmart’s patented formula of hypochlorous is made with sodium chloride (NaCI, which is common table salt) and purified water.  It is therefore compatible with all food restrictions or food-sensitive individuals.

Emphasizing that hypochlorous is organic, the National Organics Standard Board (NOSB) issued guidance that hypochlorous be listed in as a synthetic substance allowed for use in organic crop production.  

HOCl is registered on the EPA’s “List N” to kill 99.9% of bacteria, fungi, and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes coronavirus.
