5 Ways Hypochlorous Acid Heals Skin
Haven’t heard of Hypochlorous acid (HOCl)? It’s not as scary as it sounds. When your immune system attacks a developing infection in your body, Hypochlorous acid is the antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory molecule that white blood cells create to kill it and reduce the inflammation.
When used on surfaces, HOCl is the ideal solution for medical-grade hand and surface sanitisation because of it’s anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. But what most people don’t know is the incredible healing effects that HOCl has on the skin.
1.Wounds, cuts, bites
San-O-Doc helps stop bleeding in an acute wound. It’s a potent wound-healing and cell-repairing agent whereby wounds exposed to HOCl heal in a fraction of the time they take to heal without it. It even supports the gentle and hygienic removal of encrusted bandages.
2.Inflammatory skin conditions
HOCl has been shown to help kill a specific type of staph bacteria commonly associated with eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, rashes, acne, rosacea and more! That’s why San-O-Doc is a highly effective anti-inflammatory agent which reduces not only pain but also redness associated with inflammation and swelling.
San-O-Doc is free from alcohol, ammonia, bleaches, sulfates, copper, phenols, sulfur, iodophors aldehydes, pesticides, fragrances, and silicon, making it ideal for sensitive skin! And, unlike prescription antibiotics, you can’t develop resistance or allergy because HOCl feels right at home in the body.
3.Post invasive cosmetic treatment
San-O-Doc keeps superficial and acute wounds moist and prevents dermal dehydration. A moist environment has been proven to facilitate the wound healing process by enhancing angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels) and collagen synthesis together with increased breakdown of dead tissue and fibrin (protein involved in blood clotting). This improves the aesthetics of the wound, while decreasing pain.
Not only will it prevent infections and destroy any pathogens on the area of application, it will also improve the healing process, decrease keloid formation (scarring), increase the recovery rate, reduce redness and swelling (inflammation) and protect your natural oils.
Applications of San-O-Doc can be used for (and are not limited to):
- IPL procedures
- Derma rolling
- Platelet-Rich plasma therapy
- Chemical peel
HOCl is the most powerful disinfectant against disease-forming microorganisms. It destroys biofilm and pathogens that might be protected by the biofilm. Because HOCl is an oxidant, it leaves nothing behind for bacteria and viruses to create.
HOCl is 100x more powerful than bleach when it comes to fighting bacteria and at the same time, poses no risk of damaging your skin! It’s gentle enough to use on the most delicate of skin, including children's’.
Has powerful skin rejuvenation effects. HOCl is a natural anti-inflammatory and cell-repair stimulating agent. It can be used to reverse the cell damage done due to environmental factors, chemical irritants, poor diet and deydration.
When incorporating San-O-Doc into your daily self care routine, skin cells begin to function normally, and collagen, elastin and melanin formation is normalised, resulting in a smoother textured skin with fewer wrinkles, better hydration and even skin tone.
Numerous studies have found that HOCl has several transformative effects on the skin. San-O-Doc effectively reverses environmental damage on the skin, leaving you with true rejuvenation with on-going use.
