Pure&Clean Frequently Asked Questions

No. Pure & Clean products are very different than bleach and are not made from bleach. The active ingredient in bleach is 5% to 6% sodium hypochlorite resulting in an average pH of 12 which is highly alkaline. Pure & Clean’s main ingredient, hypochlorous acid (HOCl), is a different oxychlorine species that is dissimilar from sodium hypochlorite (only a minute trace results naturally from the process of electrifying a proprietary salt solution). The pH of Pure & Clean products are in a neutral range just like the pH of the dermal layer of all humans. Bleach solutions, or “Dakins Solution”, are of a very high pH, many of which are not shelf stable, and have to be used quickly.
Pure & Clean Sports Skin Defense is non-cytoxic and safe, so use as often as desired because daily cleansing will proactively create a safe and healthy environment.

Pure & Clean is a type of anolyte water.

Anolyte water is a liquid that was first used over 175 years ago! It is produced by electrolyzing salt water in an anode chamber of an electrolyte cell. An electro –chemical reaction takes place and it converts an aqueous solution of Sodium Chloride (salt water) into a solution known as Anolyte, or electrolyzed water. The solution at that point contains >99.3% water, with the remaining solution being chloride salts and hypochlorous acid.

Hypochlorous Acid is a weak acid (similar pH to intact skin), is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies and the same chemical that our own white blood cells produce to fight infection and kill bacteria. This solution holds a unique place as one of the only agents known that is both nontoxic to the delicate cells that heal our wounds while being lethal to almost all known dangerous bacteria and viruses that threaten our health*. The overwhelming impediment to its widespread use has been shelf stability.
