Hypochlorous, the Safe Germ Killer

Now that you have read my blog about bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses, is there any wonder there are so many illnesses caused by these little creatures?  I think of my grandson in daycare – the germs on all of those toys, beds, tables, chairs, and everywhere!  It is no wonder day care kids are sick so often!  I have found the solution, but it is up to the institutions and individuals to implement the solution.  It is called hypochlorous acid.  

Hypochlorous acid is NOT bleach nor a strong acid.  It is HOCL, which is one molecule of hydrogen, one molecule of oxygen, and one molecule of chlorine.  It is made with a solution of salt (NaCl) and water (H2O).  When an electrical current is applied to the solution, the molecules break apart, and the elements form hypochlorous acid (HOCl).  This is nature’s super powerful disinfectant. This is the same substance, HOCl, that your white blood cells produce to fight germs. 

Hypochlorous acid at dilute concentrations is very gentle.  Let’s compare bleach and hypochlorous acid.  They have different chemical formulas.  Sodium hypochlorite (bleach) is NaOCl.  Hypochlorous acid is HOCl. It is so gentle it is used in wound healing products. You might wonder why anyone would use bleach when hypochlorous is safe and works much better than bleach as a disinfectant. It has also been around for many years.  However, it was expensive to make in large quantities because the equipment cost a lot.  And it was not very stable, so the shelf life was too short to be a valuable product.  But that problem has been solved, and Curativa Bay’s hypochlorous now has a 5 year shelf life.  Hypochlorous is an EPA-registered hospital grade disinfectant that kills 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, mold, and mildew.  It kills respiratory viruses that cause flu and Covid.  SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is officially one of the viruses that HOCl can take down. The EPA recently added the ingredient to their official list of disinfectants effective against the coronavirus

The first chemical discovery of hypochlorous acid (HOCl) was over 150 years ago.  The modern application of the solution using saltwater and electricity was first developed in the 1970s. .

Electrolysis is the passing of a direct electric current through an ionic substance. It was first explained by Michael Faraday in the 1830s. Single cell technology was developed to generate a more stable solution of HOCl at an optimal pH.

“Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is a substance naturally created by our white blood cells that acts as the body’s first line of defense against bacteria, irritation, and injury,” explains Michelle Henry, M.D., clinical instructor of dermatology at Weill Medical College in New York City.

How Can Hypochlorous Acid Benefit Your Skin? 

The antimicrobial effects of HOCl make it useful for fighting acne and skin infections; it’s also anti-inflammatory, is soothing, repairs damaged skin, and speeds up wound healing.  In short, it’s a great option for acne sufferers, as well as those dealing with chronic inflammatory skin conditions such as eczemarosacea, and psoriasis.

“Because hypochlorous acid is naturally found in your immune system, it’s non-irritating and an excellent ingredient for sensitive skin,” points out Stacy Chimento, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist at Riverchase Dermatology in Miami Beach. 

It’s also worth noting that the HOCl that’s found in skin-care products, cleaning products, and even operating rooms is all the same; it’s just the concentrations that vary. The lowest concentrations are usually used for wound healing, the highest for disinfecting.

Regular use of Curativa Bay Hypochlorous Spray offers an array of benefits that extend from enhancing skin tone, and inhibiting the toll of skin aging changes, to relief from discomfort wherever there has been irritation or injury.

Key Benefits of HOCL

Kills all viruses
80 times stronger than bleach
Stable shelf life 2-5 years
Safe and nontoxic
Great laundry deodorizer and disinfectant
Safe for eyes and skin

Enhances wound healing

Curative Bay HOCL is made in the USA, and all ingredients are from the USA


Restaurants, Hotels, Schools, Offices, Vehicles, Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Daycares,
Laundry, Odor Control, Skin Care, Pet Care, and Wound Care… and In YOUR HOME

HOCl eventually reverts back into simple saltwater and doesn’t burden the environment we all live in. The same cannot be said about traditional products which can expose you to harmful chemicals, fumes and residues.

How does it work? 

Hypochlorous acid is a powerful oxidant that can kill microbial pathogens immediately upon contact by damaging cell walls .  It inactivates the pathogens by entering and disrupting proteins, lipids, and DNA. 

Has it been researched? 

In the last 30 years there have been over 300 published research articles supporting the use of hypochlorous acid. Nearly every common bacterial pathogen has been studied such as E. coliSalmonellaListeriaVibrioStaphylococcusMRSAspore forming bacteria, and many common viruses (including Norovirus), and also fungi.
