HOCL Mimics Your Body’s Response To Infections to Help Keep You Safe!
However, These Claims Can Only Be Made In Certain Concentrations
And Here’s Why Certain Hypochlorous Acid Solutions Are Safer Than Others
How Hypochlorous Acid Works to Mimic The Body's Response
Your white blood cells are responsible for helping your body’s immune system fight off infections so they can be flushed out hopefully before you’ve even noticed.
And, the way your body does this is that they create a combination that at it’s base, is a human safe chlorine compound using salt and water, that’s not just safe for the environment, but it’s also safe for you.
This salt and water compound is then released by those same white blood cells to search out and destroy germs, bacteria, viruses, and fungi on contact.
And, while this has been recognized since 1834, the research has been limited, with big budget corporations investing in what works for their pockets as opposed to what works for you.
How This Process Is Replicated to Keep Surfaces Free From Infection
Recognized since 1834 as the compound used to help keep your body safe, research into hypochlorous acid as a way to be recreated outside the body grew following the 1870 discovery of electrolysis, or, the combination of molecules and atoms that were sped up through the use of electricity.
These solutions ended up leading to an interest in salt and water combined to help speed up healing and disinfection in times as well-known as World War I.
Eventually, the research shifted.
So that these salt and water solutions weren’t just for disinfection on the human body, but to also help prevent and deter us from coming into contact with infectious diseases and illnesses.
And, In the process, they found that by stabilizing HOCl outside the body they could mimic the same behavior to enable us to use HOCl to kill more than 99.9999% of germs on various types of surfaces.
Best of all, this power is not exclusive to hard, non-porous surfaces as HOCl can be used to sanitize meat and even break down pesticides on produce.
Which is why HOCL can claim to not just be strong enough for the hospital, but safe enough for home!
Differences in Solution and How Percentages Make HOCL More Effective
However, while the research has been around for decades, there’s been little research into hypochlorous acid due to decreased interest.
Big brands controlled the perception of what worked for disinfection, even if those products such as bleach, could not just be toxic to humans, animals, and plants alike, but also less effective.
While there were small circles of scientists and doctors who would continue the research, there was a lack of interest in funding the projects due to necessity.
Even if the products weren’t as effective, they still were enough to keep people feeling safe.
Up until now.
With the pandemic, there’s been a renewal in trying to find more effective solutions to help keep people safe from something like this happening again.
Because much of this research is new, there’s still the process of going through FDA and EPA approvals to ensure that the compound can be made stable to last for longer periods of time.
At lower strengths, the solution is stable to act as non-toxic and eco-friendly skin moisturizers, surface sanitizers, and even degreasers at different concentrations.
However, at higher strengths, there is still ongoing research to help make sure the HOCL strength remains consistent for residences in order for the governments to sign off on these claims.
Fortunately, the strength of the hypochlorous acid can be controlled by:
- The percentages of salt, water in the solution
- The time spent using electrolysis to combine the compound
This helps to make HOCl that can make the spread of diseases and illnesses as difficult as possible.
Surfaces Where HOCL Works Most Effectively
And, because their primary ingredient is a form of water, these solutions work best on non-porous surfaces such as:
- Non-Upholstered Chairs
- & More
With the primary reason being that surfaces such as rubber and vinyl often won’t allow for the solution to stick in order to ensure maximum strength.
And, with fabrics, like linens or carpets, the porous nature of their make up also doesn’t allow for the hypochlorous acid to stick for the same effect.
At least not on its own.
How to increase the effectiveness of HOCl on various surfaces
Using different application technologies such as electrostatic spraying or ultra low volume (ULV) fogging, you can ensure that your HOCl is able to adhere to surfaces much more thoroughly to ensure maximum disinfection and efficacy.
We prefer ULV foggers which is why we recommend products like the Pyuriti Pulse and Pyuriti Pulse Backpack to ensure that your sanitizing or disinfecting regimen is as powerful and thorough as possible to help destroy dangerous pathogens in the safest and most comprehensive way possible by using products like Pyuriti Cleanse.
