Considering our pet’s paws are some of the dirtiest things entering our home, I wanted to share a natural but effective way to clean not only their paws but their entire body as well! It sounds almost too good to be true but would you believe me if I told you that there was a natural and safe way to do that? Forget toxic and harsh cleansers loaded with hormone disrupting deodorizers and perfumes, hypochlorous acid “HOCL” is where it’s at!
Before I tell you more about HOCL, you must know that not all forms are created equal so when selecting a brand, you must ensure it is well researched and tested for stability which our Organic Bunny for Pets Paw Cleanser, of course, is!
What is HOCL?
In 1834, French chemist Antoine Jérôme Balard discovered HOCl as the infection-fighting compound found naturally in the white blood cells of the human body. Balard’s work would most notably be used thereafter by armies in World War I and World War II for wound cleaning and to neutralize chemical burns. Today, it is most commonly used on humans, animals, and the natural environment to clean and disinfect which is why I knew it had to be the main ingredient in any cleanser I would use on my pups, the problem was, many brands out there use additives or too much water which produces a less pure of a product so you do not want to take your chances unless you have researched the brand.
Besides using this on my animals, I also love using it on myself for a variety of issues! For human use, I love the Lumion products whenever I have a cut, it helps it heal so much faster and when I travel, I am never without the spray! I also suggest keeping this in your home so when accidents pop up, you can apply it the same day to start the healing process as soon as possible. This also works great on kids as a cleaner alternative to Neosporin. I am never without HOCl for myself and my pets!
How Does It Work?
HOCl works to break down the cells that are creating an infection by destroying the cell membrane and its DNA, thus halting its replication or growth process. The human/animal body produces HOCl to reverse markers of epidermal aging, protect against environmental aggressors and cleanse the skin. When utilized as an application outside the body, the PH-neutral HOCl solution works in much the same way.
Because of the above, this cleanser can be utilized for so much. Studies show that HOCl has various medical uses, being especially helpful at helping wounds heal. The HOCl works hard to kill the microbes that can cause infection and slow the healing process. When either you or your pet has a wound or injury, the white blood cells quickly get to work to start the healing process. These blood cells recognize and hunt down invading pathogens in the body. When they contact the pathogen, they use naturally-produced chemicals including HOCl to destroy the pathogen completely. The listed HOCl products here perform the same which is why HOCl is so effective when it comes to cleaning, wound care, and even skincare.
