The EcoChemist Story

It is a deceptively simple but incredibly clever technology that makes The EcoChemist range of sanitising products so different and effective. 

  • The EcoChemist uses a process called Electrochemistry to create its range of hand, surface and air sanitisers.
  • Electrochemistry passes an electric current through a solution to produce a naturally occurring super disinfectant, called Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL).
  • Creating HOCL using Electrochemistry, rather than chemicals, means the bi-products are simply salt and water.
  • The Electrochemical HOCL is then used to create Anocide-STM, the power behind the range. 

By using Electrochemistry we are able to produce an alcohol-free, but highly effective hand sanitiser. And unlike some alcohol-based sanitisers, it is very gentle on the skin.

What makes Electrochemistry different 

Pathogens (Germs) are inactivated by atomic oxygen (O). Atomic Oxygen is formed when Hypochlorous Acid (HOCI) disassociates in Electrolysed Water. Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL) can be made in two ways:

  • Disassociation of Calcium Hypochlorite (chemical process)
  • Electrolysis of a weak brine (electrochemistry) 

Hypochlorous Acid from Brine is an Electro-Chemical oxidation and because it is created in Electrolysed Water, electrical energy is available to allow the molecules to divide into different components. The bi-products of the chemical process are toxic. Whereas the bi-products of the Electrochemical process is simply salt and water.
