A Miraculous Molecule

Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl)

BIHOCL™ manufactures the purest form of hypochlorous acid (HOCl) available today. But as a simple molecule, HOCl has a impactful story to tell — one that is still being written by companies like ours.

This page explores why hypochlorous is safe, simple, natural, effective, and the next frontier of Canadian health care and beyond.

What is Hypochlorous?

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is a natural part of our body’s internal defense system — a critical molecule produced by our white blood cells as our first line of defense against infection, inflammation, or injury¹⁻⁹.

When produced outside the body, HOCl is an electrolyzed, antimicrobial, biocide solution that inactivates pathogens like bacteria, viruses, spores, and fungi³.

Works to fight infection, control responses to injury, and enhance healing⁹

Part of the healthy response to injury and recovery³

Consistently shows no adverse effects⁸

Will not irritate or aggravate tissue damage at wound sites²

There is no bubbling or tingling sensation, unlike many other topically applied solutions

Soothing, steady control over the healing process that quickly become evident¹³

Safe for use on humans and animals³⁻⁵

A Long, Storied History

As an antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal that is safe for all mucosal contact⁷, HOCl hurries healing, works to mitigate scarring⁶, to clear a myriad of skin issues and conditions⁸, can be misted to permeate small crevices for effective odor control and disinfection⁴. A review of HOCl attributes will show the following citations:

Reduces skin aging¹º

Makes blood clot in wounds⁶

Causes fibrinogen oxidation, leading to firmer clots and a longer clot lysis period⁹

Stimulates immunity to germs¹¹

Produces powerful local stimulants of wound healing and germ killing⁷⁻¹²

Makes new skin cells grow over wounds and reorganizes scar fibers⁶

Leads to long lasting local effects in the body

While the 100 year history of hypochlorous acid (HOCl) has provided indisputable evidence of its efficacy in healing and use in disinfection, and over 500 peer-reviewed, published papers universally document significant beneficial results, the widespread use of HOCl has remained fairly stagnant, and the primary limiting factor to broad adoption of this important technology, historically, has been due to the innate reactivity of the molecule itself and its lack of stability when using existing manufacturing processes⁶.

With that knowledge, and the bottom-line mission to fundamentally change the discussion of health, healing and disinfection around the world, BIHOCL™ dove into all things HOCl — the science, technology, equipment, properties and production. Through nine years of research, BIHOCL has brought HOCl technology to the forefront through trade-secret developments in properties and production which have been documented and published as scientific breakthroughs in both efficacy and stability.

Furthering the development of Electro-Chemical Activated (ECA) Technology, BIHOCL™ has scientifically engineered a process to mass-produce hypochlorous products that are highly-effective while maintaining industry-leading stability, purity, and shelf life.

Our ECA formulations are superior in purity and have been proven to maintain electrical efficacy beyond known barriers. In this stable form, these electrically active HOCl solutions maintain efficacy and power to influence many biochemical events in human and animal tissues, as well as in microbes.

Under strict quality-control procedures, we use water (H2O) and salt (NaCl) to create a specific brine solution, and then pass the brine through a proprietary, electrolytic chamber. The result is a pure hypochlorous acid solution which is a weak (gentle) acid containing powerful benefits.

Throughout the world, commercial industries such as hospitality, janitorial, food and water processing, agricultural, animal husbandry, and health and public safety have adopted ECA Technology for use, eliminating the need for harmful, toxic chemicals.

The BIHOCL™ vision has always been about what HOCl can do for the good of living beings and the environment around us, and we’re excited to lead the hypochlorous acid industry with game-changing technologies in healing and disinfection.

Only BIHOCL has been proven to eliminate the world’s most dangerous and hardiest pathogen

More closely than any other HOCl on the market, BIHOCL mimics what is produced inside the body

Our formulations contain no active components other than pure HOCl (unlike other producers of HOCl)

Our HOCl is unmatched in safety, efficacy, and stability

BIHOCL formulations are HOCl in its purest form

Our purity allows us to continually achieve ground-breaking results

Our scaling capacity is setting the industry precedent for HOCl production at the highest quality level


At BIHOCL, we are passionate about our formulations and energized by our commitment to make a difference in people’s lives and in the world.
