Our Most Frequently Asked Questions
What is HOCl?
Hypochlorous (HOCl) is a broad-spectrum disinfectant and sanitizer for commercial and household use. Made from clean ingredients, it leaves no chemical residue and breaks down into simple salt and water after use. Our hypochlorous-based products are registered on the EPA’s List N to kill 99.9% of bacteria, fungi, and viruses, including coronavirus. Visit our Hypochlorous page to learn more.
How does HOCl work?
Our hypochlorous (HOCl) based products kill 99.9% of bacteria, fungi, and viruses, including coronavirus, safely and effectively. Identical to the molecule that white blood cells use to fight infections, HOCl kills most pathogens by damaging their cell walls, then entering and disrupting proteins, lipids, and DNA. Tough on germs, yet gentle enough to use around people, animals, and food without the need for PPE or to evacuate crowded spaces, even indoors.
How often can HOCl be applied?
Unlike many commercial disinfectants that can sometimes be volatile, cause skin irritations, or are pungent in odor, our all-natural hypochlorous based disinfectants are tough on germs yet safe for use around people, animals, and food without the need for PPE or to evacuate crowded spaces, even indoors. Spray on surfaces to kill a wide variety of bacteria and viruses, including coronaviruses, Hepatitis A and B, Influenza, HIV/AIDS, and MRSA. Use whenever and wherever disinfection is needed. Ideal for repeated use throughout the day.
Is HOCl really safe as a disinfectant?
Yes. Our patented hypochlorous based products produce no fumes that can harm lungs if inhaled, won’t irritate skin or eyes on contact, and breaks down into simple salt and water after use. Hypochlorous is tough on germs, yet gentle enough to use on any hard, non-porous surface and encompasses all the necessary needs to create healthier and safer environments for people and the planet.

How is HOCl better than other disinfectants?
Unlike many commercial disinfectants that can sometimes be volatile, cause skin irritations, or are pungent in odor, our hypochlorous based products are all-natural, safe, effective, and fast-acting. Hypochlorous is not a bleach and contains no alcohol, Quats, Hydrogen Peroxide, Phenolics, or Iodophors. Our hypochlorous based products can be used whenever and wherever to prevent the transmission or spread of germs, bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Made with clean, clear ingredients, hypochlorous breaks down into simple salt and water after use.
What happens if I get HOCl in my eyes?
You should experience no adverse health reactions if HOCl is sprayed or splashed into your eyes. The salt concentration in HOCl is very similar to tears. In fact, many eye doctors use HOCl based solutions to treat eye infections like blepharitis and pink eye.
How long does a surface or object stay disinfected?
Over time, a surface subject to exposure or contaminants will repeatedly need to be cleaned and disinfected. This is true for any disinfectant, as they do not guarantee long-term protection.
What is electrostatic spray technology?
Electrostatic spray technology is a revolutionary way to apply cleaners, sanitizers, and disinfectants to large areas and surfaces in less time and with better coverage than traditional methods. The technology prevents liquid pooling often associated with trigger sprayers by electrostatically charging droplets as they leave the spray nozzle. This causes the droplets to repel one another, preventing them from coming together and forming larger droplets. This method of spraying also “wraps” around surfaces providing even and consistent surface coverage.
