What is Hypochlorous Acid (STERLOC)? Water + Salt + Electricity

HOCl is natural part of our internal defence system. It is produced in our white blood cells as a component that works to fight infection,to control responses to injury and to enhance healing. When chemically produced outside the body, HOCl is not stable. With our research efforts at Venus Medicine Research Centre, we have developed Sterloc which is based on the novel Electrochemical Activation (ECA) Technology that generates neutral pH and stable HOCl.

History of Hypochlorous Acid

In 1834, French chemist Antoine Jérôme Balard discovered HOCl as the infection-fighting compound found naturally in the white blood cells of the human body. It has been used in the medical field for over a century. Before antibiotics were available, HOCl was used to irrigate and disinfect wounds in World War I. It is now used in everyday settings including daycare centers, hospitals, and even produce sections in grocery stores.
