What is HOCl?

HOCl is also called hypochlorous solution. This is a naturally occurring product which is formed by the human white blood cells and is used by our bodies to fight infection and heal wounds.

Does it work?

Our HOCl has a wide range of uses - from burns to chronic wounds, in surgery and with nappy rash and other skin concerns. We regularly receive feedback of amazing results from our clients.

When to use?

HOCl’s three main functions are disinfection, the destruction of biofilm and a reduction in inflammation. This ensures better wound healing with a much lower risk of infection and a marked improvement in pain.
