Why haven’t I seen this before?

Hypochlorous was discovered in the 19th century by a British scientist. It was actually manufactured for the first time in the 1960’s. There was always a problem however in that no one was able to make a stable version that had a shelf life so it could be packaged. The only organisations that could take advantage of this incredible product were large scale industrial and agricultural operations such as dairy and poultry units, where they produced non-stable Hypochlorous onsite for immediate use. Our team and the scientists have worked out how to stabilise the active ingredient so we can now make it available to everyone.
