How Force of Nature Kills Viruses & BacteriaIt’s all about the chemistry. Force of Nature uses a technology called electrolyzed water, which is an industrial technology used in products like wound healing, eye care, veterinary care, and also in green cleaning & sanitizing. It’s pretty simple chemistry, where electricity changes the chemical composition of the salt, water & vinegar into new ingredients. It’s really the same principle that’s at play in cooking: you combine elements, and under the right conditions, they change into a new substance that’s completely different. When Force of Nature passes an electrical charge through the salt, water & vinegar solution, the molecules are broken apart and formed into 2 new ingredients:
- Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) , the disinfecting & sanitizing ingredient. Hypochlorous acid is so gentle and effective it’s commonly used in wound healing products and as a hospital sanitizer & disinfectant. It’s actually the same substance your immune system produces to fight infection.
- Sodium hydroxide (NaOH). This is a common ingredient used at different concentrations in products ranging from toothpaste, skin moisturizers, and sunscreens, to cleaning products. In cleaning products, you typically see concentrations of 1-5%, but in Force of Nature it’s only 0.0000003%.
