A Brief History of Electrox

Millions of years of evolution has created the perfect germ killer. Every time we get an infection, and a dangerous microorganism gets inside our bodies, our immune response kicks in. Signals given off by the invading microbes cause a sequence of events where our special immune cells (Neutrophils) release a substance known as Hypochlorous Acid. This naturally occurring chemical, has such immense antimicrobial properties, the pathogens don’t stand a chance. Hypochlorous acid has been supporting human’s immune systems for generations, and now Electrox Water Limited is continuing this evolutionary tradition.

The Electrox Innovation

To produce this unrivalled disinfectant, we use 3 simple and wholly sustainable ingredients: Water, Salt, Electricity. Using our unique, patented technology, we pass an electric current through the solution of water and salt which creates hypochlorous acid. This (actually not very) simple process produces Electrox Sterilising Water, a disinfectant capable of eliminating 99.99% of bacteria, viruses and fungi.

The Electrox Anolyte is composed of 99.46% water, 0.03% hypochlorous acid, 0.5% sodium chloride and 0.01% trace components! It is this tiny amount of hypochlorous acid which has such a powerful effect against bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Electrox Sterilising Water in Action

Extra Special Features

As previously discussed, Electrox Sterilising Water is based on the phenomenal germ destroying properties of hypochlorous acid. But surely a product so deadly to microbes, must be harmful to humans? Well thanks to the fact that it is so effective, such low concentrations are needed that the product is not classified as hazardous! Not only this, but because our own bodies produce it, we have great biocompatibility[1] to it, adding to the supportive nature of Electrox Sterilising Water.
