About using Thoclor's hypochlorous acid
GF1 Aftercare is developed for use on the skin when undergoing aesthetic treatments. The concentration of hypochlorous acid in this formulation is higher than in our GF2 formulations - specifically because GF1 is designed to disinfect the skin before the procedure - and to minimise complications, reduce inflammation and support healing post-treatment.
Once the skin has recovered you should switch back to GF2 for daily use until the next treatment. GF2 is at the correct concentration to be used every day. It helps to reduce subclinical inflammation on the skin due to environmental factors - helping with inflammageing and conditions like rosacea and acne.
About hypochlorous acid
Our hypochlorous solution is a mixture containing hypochlorous acid (scientific or molecular formula: HOCl) and medical-grade water.
Hypochlorous acid is a highly specialised molecule that is, under normal conditions, manufactured by the white blood cells in the human body, and which is responsible for our immunity. It is also very important in regulating the body's inflammation process and plays a central role in wound healing.
Thoclor Labs has developed a unique process to manufacture hypochlorous acid outside of the human body. Our proprietary process does not use the usual method of electrolysing a salt-water solution, as is commonly applied by others.
The result of our method is the highest quality formulation of hypochlorous acid that retains its almost miracle-like benefits for the skin.
About other disinfectants
Sodium hypochlorite (NaClO, or commonly known as bleach) is a chlorine compound most commonly used as a disinfectant. However as methods are developed (like the method discovered by Thoclor Labs) to manufacture hypochlorous acid outside of the human body, hypochlorous acid will eventually be the only molecule used to disinfect wounds, surfaces, water systems, air spaces and anywhere else that suffers from germ infestation. This is due to the fact that hypochlorous acid is 100 times more deadly against germs than hypochlorite and it is completely non-toxic, where hypochlorite has many known toxic side effects in the human body.
Thoclor's hypochlorous acid does not contain any bleach NaOCl.

Thoclor's hypochlorous acid can successfully eradicate biofilm and is a highly effective disinfectant against bacteria, viruses, pathogens, germs, bugs, spores, algae, yeast, mould and fungi.
However, as hypochlorous acid is the body's natural defence mechanism, it does not kill normal bacteria (the good microbiome) responsible for the physiological processes of the human body.
Bacteria are single-celled living organisms ubiquitous in every habitat on Earth. They are both harmful and useful to the environment and animals, including humans. Some bacteria act as pathogens and cause disease and illness.
About toxicity, cytotoxicity, acute toxicity, chronic toxicity, genotoxicity
Hypochlorous acid proved not to be toxic to animals, insects and humans. Thoclor has never tested our hypochlorous acid on animals but there are numerous published data that refer to the safety of hypochlorous acid in multiple animal studies.
Toxicity is a measure of the degree to which something is toxic or poisonous.
