What Is Hypochlorous Acid & Why Is It The Revolutionary New Step In Your Skin Health Routine?

Within this article we will discuss the many uses and benefits of Hypochlorous Acid and why it should be the new addition to your skin health routine. Have you begun to hear a buzz around the ingredient Hypochlorous Acid?

What Is Hypochlorous Acid?

So what exactly is Hypochlorous Acid? In short, Hypochlorous Acid is nature’s miracle ingredient that works wonders in many ways. HOCl is naturally produced by our white blood cells and is an essential part of our immune system which helps to fight off infections. Due to its impressive healing powers, Hypochlorous Acid is now (rightly so) being widely recognised and appreciated, in particular for its contribution to skin health. It is now used in a wide range of health care applications.

The History of Hypochlorous Acid

Hypochlorous Acid certainly isn't new; it is a natural substance that has been recognised for centuries. Its remarkable value was initially noted during the first World War, when it was observed benefitting the wounds of soldiers in the trenches that had been exposed to chlorine gas. The discovery of Hypochlorous Acid was then formally published in the British Medical Journal in 1915. Since then, medical experts have worked hard to perfect this substance, However the recognised method of manufacture of Hypochlorous is an inexact science and despite all efforts, the production of a sufficiently pure and stable Hypochlorous eluded the scientific community for over 100 years. It was not until 2015 that the goal was finally achieved by Clinical Health Technologies who are now THE leaders in the Hypochlorous sector. 

The Benefits of Hypochlorous Acid For Skin Health

The reason hypochlorous is such a sought after chemistry is due to its remarkable combination of being a highly effective antimicrobial but also being completely safe to human skin – and in fact all mammals. This means that it can be safely used in a wide range of applications (even wound care) to keep micro-organisms under control without endangering skin health.

Therefore it can hugely improve skin health as it is tremendously effective at purifying the skin, which helps to fight acne and other skin infections. Due to the way Hypochlorous Acid is naturally occuring in the body, it is an excellent non-irritating ingredient for those with sensitive skin.

Other Uses of Hypochlorous Acid

Hypochlorous Acid is not only a natural skin purifier, it has a wide variety of other uses: because it is ultra-effective in destroying bacteria and viruses it is an excellent disinfectant. As previously mentioned, Hypochlorous Acid can also be used to speed up wound healing, and other skin issues.
