All you need to know about nature’s safest & most effective SANITIZER

What is HOCI?

HOCI is a highly oxidised, mildly acidic antimicrobial solution. The weak acidity is about as mild as citrus, but is up to 100x more effective at killing microbial pathogens than bleach & alcohol based products. HOCI is created by combining water and salt through a patented electrolyzing process. It’s a metastable molecule, so once activated, it turns back into salt-water, leaving no residue or harmful substances behind.

 

Is it safe?

Yes! Our own bodies produce HOCI when white blood cells attack an invading pathogen. Unlike its chlorine-cousin bleach, HOCI is non-carcinogenic and won’t harm skin, eyes, or lungs. Its slight acidity means it does not release chlorine gas. HOCI is non-corrosive to galvanised steel so it won’t damage medical, structural or industrial equipment.

 

How Does it work?

Hypochlorous acid destroys pathogens by causing necrosis (rupturing the cell) through oxidation and chlorine, a key feature that sets it apart from traditional sanitising products. It is FDA approved to eliminate bacteria, viruses and fungi.

 

What makes our product better?

If hypochlorous acid is such a powerful weapon against pathogens, why haven’t you heard more about it? There are a couple of reasons, one being the cost to manufacture and it would only remain stable for a very short time before it became saltwater.

Recent advancements in technology have corrected this problem and HOCI can now remain stable for years. With Hypotab’s proprietary formula in a HOCI effervescent tablet solution, we are able to supply you with an incredibly potent pathogen killer that is completely non-toxic and environmentally friendly, at a fraction of the cost of traditional sanitizers.

Main benefits:

  • Hypotab is proven to be 100x more effective at killing bacteria, viruses than bleach & alcohol based products
  • From agriculture, mining, & general commercial use, Hypotab is a low cost disinfectant alternative to traditional sanitising products
  • Non flammable and no special permits are required to transport
  • Completely non-toxic to mammals
  • Leaves no residue behind & non-corrosive to galvanised metals
  • Environmentally friendly

Product Uses

Areas & industries that already effectively use our product

Covid

HOCI meets the EPA criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 and is endorsed by the world health organisation as a treatment against the outbreak of COVID-19 & other viral diseases. It can be used is an effective hand sanitizer and does not cause eczema.

 

Dentistry

HOCI is used to sanitise dental water lines and equipment. It can be a mouthwash alternative to chlorhexidine. It is cold-fogged in offices to remove virucidal aerosols created by dental tools and patients.

 

Veterinarians

Vets can use hypochlorous acid as a disinfectant for medical tools. HOCI can be sprayed or fogged in dog runs, stables, barns, and feedlots to prevent pathogens from spreading..

 

Food Industry

Restaurants use HOCI for front-of-house disinfection and as a leave-on sanitizer for dishes and fresh produce. Meat packing and bottling plants spray HOCI on their product to prevent bacterial growth.

 

Agriculture

Greenhouses run hypochlorous acid through water lines to eliminate biofilm. It can be sprayed on crops to prevent fungal growth and added to hydroponic water systems to control fungi.

 

Hospitality

Many major airlines fog their planes with HOCI between flights to kill pathogens. Hotels, taxi drivers, and B&B’s can use hypochlorous acid to safely sanitise between guests and reduce the spread of viruses.

 

Dairy & Cattle

Dairies run hypochlorous acid through their water lines to eliminate biofilm, sanitise tanks, and to treat disease. It can also be applied topically to treat mastitis and wounds. Feedlots could fog HOCI to control pathogens in large areas.

Some science behind Hypotab

Food Safety

The majority of the research that has been done regarding the practical applications of hypochlorous acid has been in the field of food safety. Since the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law in 2011, the focus of food safety has shifted from responding to contamination to preventing it. There is probably no food sanitizer more researched and more understood than hypochlorous acid. The research clearly demonstrates that hypochlorous acid is safe and efficient for ensuring microbial counts are maintained below infectious levels on food and contact surfaces.

 

Surface sanitation

Hypochlorous acid has advantages over chemicals such as Quats when sanitizing food contact surfaces because Quats are not safe on food. Before cleaning with Quats, all food must be removed from the area before sanitation can take place. This is not required when using hypochlorous acid. Hypochlorous acid can be used continuously throughout the work day regardless of whether food is exposed.

 

Direct Food Sanitation

Hypochlorous acid has advantages over ozone. Ozone is a gas and is not stable in solution therefore it cannot be used to sanitize contact surfaces. Ozone is however used for food sanitation however it must continuously be regenerated as it is continuously leaving solution into the air. Being that ozone is an irritant to the lungs and respiratory tracts, ozone is limited in the concentrations that can be used, therefore limiting the oxidation potential that can be obtained for killing microbial pathogens. Hypochlorous acid is non-irritant and is also stable in solution. Hypochlorous acid can be used at high concentrations (60 ppm) for food sanitation without requring a post-rinse.

 

Healthcare

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is already produced by the white blood cells in our blood for protecting against invading microbial pathogens. When microbial pathogens try to enter a wound, white blood cells are the first responders and engulf the bacteria exposing them to the biocide HOCl. Because HOCl is non-irritant and gentle on skin, it makes sense to use it for wound care. In addition, it can replace all general sanitation chemicals used to clean healthcare facilities. Eliminating toxic chemicals not only makes sense but provides a safer environment for children and the elderly.

 

Bacteria Inactivation

Chlorine is an extremely effective disinfectant for inactivating bacteria. A study conducted during the 1940s investigated the inactivation levels as a function of time for E. coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhi, and Shigella dysenteriae  (Butterfield et al., 1943). Study results indicated that HOCl is more effective than OCl- for inactivation of these bacteria. These results have been confirmed by several researchers that concluded that HOCl is 70 to 80 times more effective than OCl- for inactivating bacteria  (Culp/Wesner/Culp, 1986). Since 1986, there have been hundreds of publications confirming the superiority of HOCl over OCl- .

 

This biggest challenge has been to create hypochlorous acid at a near neutral pH instead of chlorine gas or hypochlorite, and to do so in a stable form. Hypochlorous acid is a meta-stable molecule. It wants to revert back to salt water or convert to hypochlorite.
