It’s multipurpose usage allows it to be sprayed on the desired surface to be sterilized, such as: hands, body, clothing, toys, hospital beds, mobile phones, tableware, air, toilets, etc. It is recommended to air dry after spraying. If it is urgently needed, it is recommended to dry it with a clean paper towel after sterilization. HOCl is a powerful oxidant that is effective against invading bacteria, fungi, and viruses. HOCl is now used in healthcare, food safety, water treatment, and etc.
Although they are similar, hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and hypochlorite (OCl-) are still very different. It would be like comparing grape juice to wine. Hypochlorite ion (OCl) carries a negative electrical charge, while hypochlorous acid (HOCl) carries no electrical charge. The hypochlorous acid moves quickly, able to oxidize the bacteria in a matter of seconds, while the hypochlorite ion might take up to a half hour to do the same. Germ surfaces carry a negative electrical charge which results in a repulsion of the negatively charged hypochlorite ion to the area of the germ surfaces, making hypochlorite ion less effective at killing germs. The hypochlorous acid’s lack of electrical charge allows it to more efficiently penetrate the protective barriers surrounding germs. Hypochlorous acid to be 70-80 times more efficient at killing microbial pathogens than chlorine bleach (OCl-).
The shelf life of HOCl is closely dependent on the process of manufacturing the HOCl itself. Since EcoSafe® is made by natural sources, the shelf life is approximately 24 months if it is unopened.
HOCl is naturally produced in white blood cell to combat against microbial. Over a long period of time, due to its natural processing and reversible process, HOCl may restore to water as it loses its charges. EcoSafe® HOCl is biodegradable of its nature itself. HOCl furthermore is also classified as non-hazardous in accordance to Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH).
EcoSafe® Disinfectant concentration is 80ppm-100ppm. It can be used readily as EPA regulations approve concentration of HOCl. As for food application, FDA have approved up to maximum of 60 ppm. There is NO dilution required for applications.
EcoSafe® can last up to 3 to 4 hours when it is sprayed on area of desired surfaces.
