About Hypochlorous Acid
Our hypochlorous solution is a mixture containing hypochlorous acid (scientific formula: HOCl) and 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 salt water solution, as is commonly applied by others.
The result of our method is a high-concentration solution without the contaminants that result when using the salt-method.
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.
About bacteria, pathogens, germs, viruses, fungi, moulds, spores & micro-organisms
Thoclor’s medical-grade 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. At Thoclor we have 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.
About using Thoclor's HOCl
A spray is a phenomenon of a liquid in small droplets floating through the air. Spraying is executed with the help of spraying pumps. Generally, spraying Thoclor’s hypochlorous acid causes the skin to get wet.
