The Science

What is Hypochlorous Acid (HOCI) ?

Hypochlorous acid is the key active ingredient found in our sanitiser. Hypochlorous occurs naturally in the human body and is produced by white blood cells in response to infection from invading microbial pathogens. The acid works by breaking down harmful cells and destroying their cell membrane and DNA.

The sanitising properties of Hypochlorous Acid have been recognised for many years and it is used today in many healthcare settings.


The Discovery

HOCI has been known to be a powerful disinfectant for over a century. In 1834, French chemist Antoine Jérôme Balard discovered HOCI as the infection fighting compound found naturally in the white blood cells of the human body. It was there after used by the armies of WW1 and WWII for cleaning wounds. Today, it is most commonly used to heal and disinfect. 

Scientifically proven to kill 99.99% of viruses and bacteria

Our sanitiser has been rigorously tested for quality, safety, and regulatory compliance through independent scientific laboratory experimentations.

It is proven to be effective against a wide range of microorganisms and comply to the stringent international BS EN standards (British Standard and European Norms): BS EN 14476, BS EN 1650, BS EN 1040, BS EN 1276, BS EN 1500, BS EN 13697, BS EN 13704
