How It Works | Hypochlorous Acid | MEDI+KURIN

The science behind the technology

How is Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) made?

Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) is naturally produced by our body's immune systems, making it safe, non-toxic, and very effective in killing germs. To produce the Hypochlorous Acid used in our products, a patented controlled electrolysis technology electrolyzes a mixture of 99.9% pure water and 99.9% pure salt to change the chemical compositions those componentes into HOCl.

A quick comparison

Should you make the switch to HOCl?

Although bleach and alcohol are commonly thought of as the most effective disinfectants, Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) is proven to be equally effective without consisting the harmful properties other disinfectants have.

Hyper-effective disinfecting

The cleansing power of Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl)

Not all germs, bacteria, and viruses can be killed with alcohol or bleach-based products. Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) however kills 99.9% of them without any harmful chemicals, residues, or fumes as it can penetrate cell walls easier and destroy those cells from the inside.

Alcohols lack sporicidal action and cannot penetrate protein-rich bacterial spores.

Hypochlorous Acid is 80-100 times more effective than bleach.

Hypochlorous Acid can penetrate pathogenic microorganism cell walls very easily, thus making it a very effective disinfectant.

Hypochlorous Acid is non-toxic and non-hazardous. Even if it were ingested by accident, it causes no harm!

Killing bacteria from the inside out

The Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) molecule is electrically neutral, while the cell walls of pathogen microorganisms are usually negative by nature. This makes it easier to penetrate cell walls and destroy vital cell components, effectively killing bacteria or pathogens from the inside. In comparison, alcohol molecules have a net negative charge, hence they are unable to penetrate similarly negatively charged viral envelopes or bacteria cell walls.
