In 1834, French chemist Antoine Jérôme Balard discovered HOCl as the infection-fighting compound found naturally in the white blood cells of the human body. Balard’s work would most notably used thereafter by armies in World War I and World War II for wound cleaning and to neutralize chemical burns. Today, it is most commonly used on humans, animals and the natural environment to clean and disinfect.

HOCl works to break down the cells that are creating an infection by destroying the cell membrane and its DNA, thus halting its replication or growth process. The human body produces HOCl to reverse markers of epidermal aging, protect against environmental aggressors and cleanse the skin. When utilized as an application outside the human body, PH-neutral HOCl solution works in much the same way. This is the reaction that cleans plants, which puts them in a position to defend themselves.


HOCl has been experimented within the agriculture and medical industry for years. With strong results in every known test, it begs the question, “Why now?”. The answer is actually quite simple…HOCl is difficult to stabilize. Our chemists have figured out a way to stabilize the product for up to 18 months. We also care deeply about the future of our planet and the negative side-effects the current cleaners on the market have on both humans and animals. We especially believe businesses in the wellness industry should have access to a solution that is not only safe, but incredibly effective. We want to challenge you to make the switch.
