12 Medical Applications of San-O-Doc Hypochlorous Acid Solution

San-O-Doc is a scientifically formulated Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) solution that is completely safe, non-toxic, non-dehydrating and anti-pathogenic. HOCl is naturally secreted in our white blood cells (neutrophils and mesophils)as our body’s first line of defence against bacteria, fungi, spores, viruses, biofilms and other pathogenic microorganisms.

San-O-Doc naturally activates your body’s anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and cell repair mechanisms, without posing the risk of causing necrosis or poisoning your cells/tissue. San-O-Doc leaves no dangerous residues after it’s antimicrobial action since it is broken down after contact with organic compounds, which makes it an incredible wound care agent. It is not necessary to wipe or rinse the area of application post treatment of San-O-Doc making the treatment of wounds with San-O-Doc more painless.

This makes San-O-Doc is the ultimate, natural solution for a variety of medical applications such as:

Sterilization of Medical facilities

San-O-Doc is non-toxic, non-corrosive and extremely anti-pathogenic. It is ideal for surface sterilization and cold sterilization for cleaning surfaces, including walls, furniture, and floors. The solution will leave no harmful residues and will destroy any micro-organisms that it comes into contact with.

PPE Disinfection

San-O-Doc is ideal for treating/washing PPE after exposure to dangerous microbes. Multi-systemic mode of action of HOCl ensures a good kill rate and while HOCl is broken down upon contact to organism material, leaving no dangerous residues. PPE such as masks and goggles can be used immediately after applying HOCl to it, without any risk.

Sterilizing Surgical Equipment

HOCl is, highly anti-pathogenic, leaves no residues and is non-toxic. It can be used to effectively sterilize medical equipment, prior and after surgery. This affordable solution is effective against a broad spectrum of pathogens, including typical hospital borne infections. This makes San-O-Doc an effective sanitizing agent for surgical equipment in any sterile environment.

Cleaning of Implants, Catheters & Ultrasonic Probes

HOCl Leaves no residues and is highly effective. Can be used to treat any medical tools that are designed to enter sterile tissue.

Terminal Room Cleaning

Intensive care and terminally ill patients will most likely have compromised immune systems. It is thus of utmost importance to ensure that these rooms are kept free from pathogens. San-O-Doc’s HOCl is appropriate for the task of battling the wide range of pathogens that are released when coughing, sneezing or diarrhoea that is common in terminally ill patients.

Neonatal Care

When babies are born the first composition of microbes that they are exposed to has been proven to have a downstream effect on the person’s general well-being. New born babies do not have an extensive microbiome to compete with pathogens, they are at risk of dangerous infection which are present at hospitals. HOCl could be considered as a preventative measure followed by exposure to a healthy environment of microbes.


Breakdown of Viruses

Viruses are extremely small and do not have cell walls, which most conventional sanitizers take advantage of to destroy microbes. HOCl denatures proteins and DNA, allowing it to break down the protein capsid of the virus, and halt the DNA replication mechanisms of the virus. San-O-Doc is highly effective at destroying enveloped viruses (such as SARS, MERS, Herpes. HIV, Poxviridae, etc... and many more) under EU standards: EN14476/SANS54476


Hypochlorous acid has been proven to reduce 99% of the bacterial load of pathogens such as the ones that cause blepharitis in as fast as 20 minutes. San-O-Doc is completely safe, non-toxic and induces anti-inflammatory and cell repair responses by the body. It is safe for the treatment of eyes at appropriate dilutions of 10:1 using distilled or deionized water.

Burns & Wounds

HOCl is one of the best solutions that you could apply to an open wound and/or burn; for its cell-repair stimulating properties and due to its potent efficacy against pathogens and biofilms.

Airvent Sanitation

Inside surgical settings air sterility is of utmost importance. Dispensing San-O-Doc into any HVAC system will help to ensure that dangerous pathogens are kept from entering highly sterile rooms. HOCl is also stable during vaporisation, requires a very low concentration to be effective and will not corrode the ventilation system. This means a HOCl mister is an ideal solution to HVAC sanitation.

Throat & Nasal Infections

San-O-Doc is safe to spray directly into your sinuses or the back of your throat to treat inflammation, infections or allergies. It can also assist in soothing a dry/irritated throat due to its cell-repairing and non-dehydrating properties.


Coronavirus / COVID19 Disinfection

San-O-Doc is a safe alternative to conventional alcohol-based sanitizers when it comes to preventing the spread of Coronavirus. Our eyes, mouth and nose are the primary entry points for the virus, especially considering that the average person touches their face up to 700 times per day. San-O-Doc has been medically tested and proven to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) under EU standards

Regular sanitation is crucial and HOCl poses no risk of irritating or damaging your body, especially your eyes when compared to alcohol. Unlike alcohol sanitizers, San-O-Doc can be directly sprayed onto your face and around the eyes, as well as into your nasal passages and mouth to effectively prevent getting infected.
