Hypochlorous acid is one of the most effective known biocides. This weak acid with the chemical name HClO or HOCl is the same chemical produced by the mammalian immune system to kill invasive organisms and fight infection. Hypochlorous is a gentle but powerful biocide which represents a monumental step forward in healthcare and hygiene.

It is benign to humans, a non-irritant to eyes, lungs and skin yet it is kind to the planet, killing 99.9999% of bacteria and viruses (including Corona virus) and can be used in all settings safely. Certified by the European Chemical Agency.

It is in use across the world but in the UK we are only recently realising its potency in the fight against Covid-19.

Ensuring your hypochlorous is legal in the UK.

As a result of Brexit, Great Britain is no longer part of the EU scheme for regulating biocides. The legislation around biocides has changed significantly and the companies producing and selling biocides have, in a lot of cases, failed to keep up.
Hypo Solution is a UK based company that is ahead of the competition and strives to only work with the leading manufacturer of HOCl in the UK, who always ensure the biocides they use are legal, registered, and tested.
As of 29th June 2021, in compliance with the specified timescale, our manufacturer filed its UK BPR Active Substance Dossiers with the Health and Safety Executive HSE and is therefore a legal manufacturer and supplier of hypochlorous acid for the UK market.
As we have an existing Letter Of Access, we are too able to continue to sell hypochlorous in the UK as our existing LoA remains valid for UK BPR purposes.

Hypochlorous acid can and should be a potent weapon going forwards.
