Saltwater + Electricity
Hypochlorous acid is a chemical compound that is produced when you apply a low-voltage charge to saltwater. This compound is naturally produced by human white blood cells.
THE STORY OF
In 1834, French chemist Antoine Jérôme Balard discovered HOCl as the infection fighting compound found naturally in the white blood cells of the human body. Balard’s work would most notably used thereafter by armies in World War I and World War II for wound cleaning and to neutralize chemical burns. Today, it is most commonly used on humans, animals and the natural environment to clean and disinfect.
HOCl works to break down the cells that are creating an infection by destroying the cell membrane and its DNA, thus halting its replication or growth process. The human body produces HOCl to reverse markers of epidermal aging, protect against environmental aggressors and cleanse the skin. When utilized as an application outside the human body, PH-neutral HOCl solution works in much the same way. This is the reaction that cleans plants, which puts them in a position to defend themselves.
HOCl has been experimented with in the agriculture industry for years. With strong results in every known test, it begs the question, “Why now?”. The answer is actually quite simple…HOCl is difficult to stabilize and the market for manufacturers hasn’t been the agriculture industry. Plant Aid has fortunately solved both of those issues. Our chemists have figured out a way to stabilize the product for up to 18 months and we don’t care about other markets. We care about agriculture! We work with farmers, food producers, and horticulturists to reduce risks, improve plant welfare, increase margins, and clean everything the way it should be cleaned. We believe that when everything is really clean great things happen!
"Hypochlorous acid wreaks havoc on the bacterium by chemically interacting with proteins, causing them to lose their complex, origami-like structures."
