What is Hypochlorous Acid?

Hypochlorous Acid is made naturally in human white blood cells (neutrophils) and is a key part of the body’s internal defense mechanism. Although Hypochlorous Acid is not widely known, it was discovered more than 100 years ago by scientists. It works as the first line of defense at wound sites to fight infections. Curativa Bay uses Hypochlorous Acid using proprietary process of  Electro-Chemical Activation (ECA) technology that enables large-scale production of this powerful natural compound for use in consumer and professional healthcare settings. Chemically it can be described as super-oxidized saline (salt) which is a biocide that effectively destroys all know bacteria, viruses, mold, and funguses.

In addition, it has recently been determined that a special formulation of  hypochlorous acid, a certified pure formulation of hypochlorous acid that contains no buffers or other ingredients is effective at deactivating PRIONS which are among the most difficult infectious diseases know to science. It has been tested by NIH and proven to be the world’s first safe method to eliminate all detectable activity of misfolded infectious proteins (PRIONS), and is safe for skin and mucosal contact. NIH scientists report that this formulation rapidly inactivates resistant  infectious proteins that cause Mad Cow Disease, Chronic Wasting, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease and are now implicated in Alzheimer’s and other neuro-degenerative and invariably fatal brain diseases.

Going beyond this, research taking place at one of the most prestigious universities has demonstrated that the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) can be safely eliminated from instruments and operating surfaces with HOCl at room temperature. Human papillomavirus is the most common sexually transmitted infection affecting both males and females and is the cause of nearly all cases of cervical cancer. There are nearly 80 million people currently infected with HPV in the United States, according to the CDC, and nearly 14 million people, including teenagers, become infected with HPV each year.

Unlike other sexually transmitted infections, most signs and symptoms of HPV are nonexistent. Of the more than 40 types of HPV, some types may cause genital warts and a small number may lead to cervical, vulvae, vaginal and anal cancers in women or anal and penile cancers in men. Various types may also transmit infection to the mouth and throat and have been associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease.  In both the case of PRIONS and HPV, hypochlorous acid IS NOT A CURE for these diseases but rather a biocide that prevents transmissibility in clinical and hospital settings where instruments used on patients infected with these diseases cannot infect other patients that are exposed to contaminated instruments or operating environments.

Although it has been determined the Hypochlorous Acid can control the spread of the aforementioned diseases there are a myriad of more common uses that are equally important to the human condition. When Hypochlorous Acid comes in contact with the skin or mucosa it instantly activates other body mechanisms to kill invading pathogens and initiates other of the body’s immune and healing responses. This is why Hypochlorous Acid is so effective against, burns, cuts, scrapes, acne, periodontitis, sunburn, surface infections, and healing wounds. Best of all it is non-toxic and all natural!
