Saving Lives with Hygiene

& Safer Water

Imagine the only water you have to give your child may KILL them.  Millions of parents face this horrific possibility every single day


  • Globally, almost 2 billion people lack access to safe drinking water.
  • An estimated 2,000 children under the age of five die every day from causes linked to contaminated water.
  • At least 1.8 billion people use a drinking-water source contaminated with faeces.
  • In low- and middle-income countries, 38% of health care facilities such as lack a clean water source.
  • It is estimated that by 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas.

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) can change this


The outcomes we are striving to achieve are:


  1. Be able to provide the means and knowledge by which human pathogens can be removed from drinking water wherever such contamination is a problem.
  2. To provide the means and knowledge by which low standards of hygiene in badly affected areas can be raised.
  3. Increase the public awareness of HOCl and its uses (HOCl is the chemical symbol for Hypochlorous acid)
  4. Provide the recipe for simple, cost effective manufacture on a domestic level.


We know we can help!


HOCl is a dilute aqueous chlorine solution with a mildly acidic pH ranging between 5 and 6.5 (skin neutral). It forms the basis for the HOCl Trust. HOCl is a NON-TOXIC sterilizing fluid. All human beings and animals use blood as their life support system. HOCl is generated within the white blood cells that form a major part of the immune system. It is triggered into action when the body is attacked by the threat of infection.
