Zero Hazard Manufacturing produces, in their EPA and FDA approved manufacturing facility, a product whose primary active ingredient is Hypochlorous Acid.
Interestingly, Hypochlorous Acid is nature’s oldest disinfectant. It is the way the human body defends itself against infection in the bloodstream and in tissues. Neutrophils (white blood cells) produce Hypochlorous Acid that then attacks invading pathogens.
Hypochlorous Acid is an organically produced chemical with disinfectant properties. As early as World War One artificially made Hypochlorous Acid was used as a disinfectant and antiseptic. The methods to produce Hypochlorous Acid, however, were not robust causing varying concentrations and inherent chemical instability. In spite of its excellent sanitizing and disinfecting properties, its use was limited until more exact and more efficient methods of manufacturing were developed. It wasn’t until the 1980’s when new methods of manufacturing involving electrolysis resulted in more widespread use. It is now used in many different industries from hospitals and operating rooms to daycare centers and farms.
Hypochlorous Acid is extremely safe. In fact, it is eye-friendly, skin friendly, inhalable and ingestible. Unlike bleach it does not damage clothing or furniture. Handling Hypochlorous Acid requires no facemask, eye protection, gloves, or PPE’s. Hypochlorous Acid is not caustic or corrosive, it evaporates rapidly without leaving residue when using fogging applications. Hypochlorous Acid can be used on cell phones, computer screens, tablets, and keyboards. It is already used in clinical applications for a variety of situations as shown in the chart below.
