ULV500 Professional Surface Cleaner, Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl)

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is a popular solution and widely used by the Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC). It is a certified solution by EPA and recommended by many infection control professionals as the less toxic solution for sanitation and disinfection.

Is Hypochlorous Acid Safe?

Why is HOCl less toxic compared to other disinfecting and sanitizing solutions in the market today? 

HOCl is derived out of the human body as part of the immune system. For over 100 years, HOCl has been used to disinfect wounds and even water for domestic use. It has no synthetic fragrances or added dye solution. This solution is made from electrolyzed water. Furthermore, HOCl does not cause or trigger asthma. It is less irritating and toxic as it has a neutral pH of 6 to 7. A user of HOCl, when gets in contact, will likely experience less or no irritation to skin, eyes, or respiratory. Compare this to bleach where the skin contact impact is very harmful! Low concentration HOCl (100 ppm) is a no-rinse food contact surface cleaner. It can also be useful to sanitize child playrooms or toys. As you increase the dilution, it can kill viruses that can cause colds, flu, and hepatitis.

Sodium Hypochlorite vs. Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) Surface Cleaner

Anywhere in the world, the most popular cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing solution is Chlorine. That's because they have the broadest range of applicability, quick to use, various companies are producing, and have a full spectrum, and the biggest reason: that’s what all the name brands are producing. Chlorine can be toxic, depending on the concentration of dilutes. It is highly useful in disinfecting and sanitizing but can cause harm to the skin and respiratory system. When taken, it can cause health hazards. Besides, the disinfection ability of Chlorine reduces when Chlorine is applied as a surface cleaner that comes in contact with dirt or debris. Hypochlorites are powerful oxidizing agents with bacterial, fungicidal, and sporicidal ability making Hypochlorous Acid active. Generally, HOCl effectively destroys the proteins like capsid, lipid envelope, and nucleic acids of viruses. This process happens because the HOCl can move quickly to oxidize bacteria in a matter of seconds.

How does Hypochlorous Acid act as a disinfectant?

In today’s COVID-19 pandemic, HOCl is being used as an option to expand the disinfection of homes, schools, and hospitals. In 2016, researchers of the University of Washington School of Public Health found HOCl is more than 99.999 percent effective in eliminating Corona Virus OC43, a virus similar to COVID-19. In March 2020, reports said that South Korea was among the earliest countries that use HOCl in drive-through testing stations. Whenever the worker ends the shift, they are showered with Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) in the portable booth to get rid of any COVID traces. Hence, South Korea is one of the countries that has been able to manage pandemic effectively.
