What Is Hypochlorous Acid

Salinise dry fogging fluid is manufactured using the active ingredient Hypochlorous Acid or ‘HOCI’.

Hypochlorous Acid is part of the immune system, made by our white blood cells to kill pathogens invading the body. HOCl is safe and non-toxic and is used in a variety of applications from open abdominal wound cleaning to gargling for sore throats and nasal irrigation. HOCI is also used in the food and agricultural industries as well as being used for sterilising baby equipment, no rinsing is required.

The cell wall of a pathogenic microorganism is negatively charged by nature. The negative charge of the hypochlorite ion (OCL –) will be repulsed by the negative charge of the pathogenic microorganism cell wall making it a weak disinfectant. The neutral hypochlorous acid (HOCL) molecule can penetrate the cell wall of the pathogenic microorganism very easily, thus making it a very effective disinfectant. Hypochlorous acid (HOCL) can also penetrate slime layers, cell walls and protective layers of microorganisms and effectively kills pathogens as a result.

No pathogens have developed resistance to HOCl.

HOCl – “…the gold standard by which all antiviral, antibacterial and sporicidal agents must now be compared.”
