The raw materials used to manufactured WODE disinfectants are iodised salt and pure water. Through the process of controlled electrolysis of iodised salt and reverse osmosis pure water, Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) is produced. HOCl is the germicidal ingredient in WODE disinfectant due to its strong reducing power.
What is HOCl?
HOCl is our body’s germ killer. Our immune system protects us against disease by detecting pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa and worms. The immune system defends our body by triggering respiratory burst of neutrophils (white blood cells), releasing hydrogen peroxide and other reactive oxygen species. Myeloperoxidase, an enzyme abundant in neutrophils, produces HOCl from hydrogen peroxide in the presence of chloride anion. HOCl is then used by neutrophils to kill pathogens.
HOCl has been approved by U.S. Food and drug administration for use in wound, eye, veterinary care products. Hospitals in Japan has use HOCl to disinfect and Covid-19 drive thru testing station in South Korea uses HOCl disinfectant in their clean zone booth for nurses to fully disinfect before going home. Local swimming pools also use HOCl to disinfect pool water. Singapore National environmental agency has included WODE disinfectant water as household product adequate for surface disinfection of covid-19 virus.
