HOCl is Nature’s Perfect Germ Killer™
The diagram to the left shows the way HOCl is produced in the human body and how it kills pathogens.
- Pathogens invade the body by entering the skin through a wound site.
- Neutrophils (a type of white blood cell) comes to the invaders and surrounds one.
- After surrounding, the neutrophil produces HOCl Acid to kill it.
CleanSmart products work by following the same process.
Hypochlorous Fast Facts
HOCl Scent and Questions About Bleach:
HOCl has a unique faint smell that is undetectable to most users, while very few people equate the smell to a swimming pool, while a small percentage of people have confused it with a faint bleach smell.
HOCl is not bleach. Laundry bleach is actually Sodium Hypochlorite (NaOCl).
CleanSmart Achievements in HOCl
The scientists at CleanSmart learned how to replicate Hypochlorous, and how to stabilize it in a bottle.
Ingredients are water and a little salt, which are then run through a special electrolyzing (also called ionizing) process.
It has been widely known for many years how to make HOCl. However, it was not shelf stable. Our scientists worked for many years to achieve & perfect shelf stability so that it can remain in a bottle.
HOCL is naturally unstable: it wants to ‘do its job’ and then revert back to saline. Once used or dried, HOCl reverts to saline water, leaving no chemical residue.
Our product is pH neutral, another scientific achievement from CleanSmart.
CleanSmart's HOCl is the only antimicrobial where the exact same product is EPA approved to be a Hospital Grade Disinfectant and also FDA approved to treat wounds or burns. The same solution does both! That is really smart science as we like to say - with extensive scientific, testing and regulatory work.
