Missouri Patent of the Month – January 2022

If you have sensitive skin, you know just how irritating cleaning can be. The products and soaps dry out your hands or lead to rashes. The same issues are seen in products meant to cleanse plants and control fungi or insect pests. Seriously Clean, Ltd. has formulated a product that is safe for your skin and safe for your plants.

In fact, their formula can be used to improve the health of both.

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) – or anolyte water – is the main ingredient and is found naturally in the human body. The spray can be used to manage most pathogens without allowing them to develop a resistance. In fact, the spray could be used on a wound to help sanitize and prevent infection. It is gentle enough to be used as a face mask by effectively removing sebum and contributing to healthier, rejuvenated skin. The same principle is applied to the plant application, as the formula targets insect and fungal infections.

Hypochlorous acid in the body works to break down the cells that are creating the infection by destroying the cell membrane and its DNA, thus halting the replication or growth process. This multi-use formula provides a safe and reliable treatment method without risking tolerance buildups. Depending on the intended purpose, the formula has been modified to meet either FDA approved prescription of Over the Counter wound management needs. In fact, their formula is the only available HOCl-based, EPA Registered hospital grade disinfectant with a Clostridioides difficile kill claim.
