HOCl (Salvesan)

Hypochlorous acid is lethal to every pathogen it has been tested against but completely harmless to humans and other mammals.

Although it’s an acid – it isn’t acidic at all because it only exists as a neutral pH solution. Salvesan mimics the Hypochlorous Acid your body produces to fight infection.



It is a disinfectant that is 100 times more effective than bleach (NaClO example Milton) against pathogens – yet is non-toxic and non-irritating to humans and other mammals. Bacteria cannot develop resistance to it, and in scientific tests it has killed every pathogen (virus, bacteria, fungus, mould, etc.) which it has been scientifically tested against.

HOCl reacts with and destroys the cell wall of the pathogen causing necrosis (rupturing of the cell) or apoptosis (programmed cell death). The HOCl then destroys anything left of the cell contents.

Our biocides have been tested in independent UK laboratories and leading universities, and comply with the rigorous EU Biocide Regulations.

Complies with EU 528/2012, approved PT1-5. Tested to EN standards BSEN 1276, BSEN 1656, BSEN 13704, BSEN 14204, BSEN 13697

HOCl is a natural and highly-effective component of our internal immune system that works to fight against infection and reduce inflammation. We offer a line of industry-specific, electro-chemical engineered topical saline solutions that work to mimic the HOCl produced inside our bodies.

HOCl products are safe for humans, animals and the environment, and are used by hospitals, food producers, horticulturists, vets and farmers to improve hygiene, healthcare and animal welfare, fight infection, and enhance food and flower shelf life.
