About HOCl

In HOCl’s simplest explanation, it is a chemical compound that  exists in our bodies. Our immune system uses HOCl in the fight against viruses, bacteria, and fungi. When the human body is cut,  white blood cells are recruited to the area of infection. These white blood cells then release HOCl to attack and eliminate the pathogens  by destroying their cell walls. This will lead to cell apoptosis, also known as the death of the cell. Although viruses are not technically living organisms, they too are destroyed by HOCl.

HOCl has been used for over a century to disinfect hospitals by sanitizing commonly used surfaces, sensitive equipment, and  more. HOCl production requires technical expertise, special handling instructions, expensive equipment, and high-grade raw materials. This has made it generally unavailable for the public’s use.

Furthermore, HOCl is not stable in the presence of oxygen, heat, or direct sunlight. Until recently it was not possible to stabilize HOCl for more than 24 hours. Some bottling techniques can stabilize HOCl products for up to 30 days, however, once a container is opened the HOCl will slowly begin to break down and lose its ability to kill harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Previously, the instability or short shelf-life makes HOCl undesirable for general household disinfection and sanitization. 

The HOCl Industry is changing and new technologies as well as state of the art production processes have made shelf life significantly longer.


This is why HOCl Insidewas created. It is extremely important to communicate objective facts and details regarding HOCl. As these companies emerge, it becomes more important than ever to qualify, validate claims, and set a standard for effective and reliable HOCl. HOCl Insidehas put in place benchmarks for research, development, and testing that a manufacturer must meet in order to receive certification. This certification will ensure that the consumer is purchasing a high quality, world class stabilized HOCl product for their families, friends and colleagues with high-level safety and performance standards.
