Hypochlorous acid, I put that $!uff on everything!

What is this magical bottle of Avenova Hypochlorous acid spray I love so much? 

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is a weak acid that is naturally produced by our immune system to fight off pathogens and maintain healthy tissues. It has gained attention for its potential health benefits and has been studied for various uses, including eye health.

Hypochlorous acid is considered safe and effective for eye hygiene. It is used as an ingredient in some eye wash solutions to clean and soothe the eyes, reducing irritation and promoting healing. HOCl can also help combat bacterial and viral infections, providing antimicrobial benefits.

Originally created for wound healing by accelerating the wound healing process. It can disinfect the wound, reduce inflammation, and promote tissue repair. This makes it useful for various skin conditions, including cuts, burns, rashes, and ulcers.


It is now being recognized as a gentle and effective skincare ingredient. It has antimicrobial properties that can help reduce acne, eczema, and other skin infections. HOCl can also reduce redness and inflammation, promoting a more balanced and clearer complexion.

HOCl in the dental world can help control bacterial growth, reduce gum inflammation, and assist in the treatment of oral infections such as gingivitis and periodontitis.

Loved by lash extensions – Make your long lashes last longer! Unlike basic lash shampoos, Avenova prevents oil and bacteria buildup, extending the life of lash extensions. Don’t worry – Avenova is oil-free, sting-free, hypoallergenic and adhesive friendly.


Avenova Hypochlorous acid spray does not sting or burn making it so easy to spray on your kids when that pesky pink eye starts to show up after a cold clear. We use it to manage blepharitis, meibomian gland disorders, and demodex that contribute to the root cause of some dry eyes. It gives some relief with itching and burning during allergy season. I use it as part of my daily routine!
