Is hypochlorous acid (HOCL) safe for eyes? Yes! At 2.5 PPM, HOCL is gentle; no stinging or discomfort upon application. It is a natural, gentle way to reduce the bacteria on and around our eyelids significantly. HOCL is a safe, eco-friendly, inexpensive ophthalmology solution for pets and humans.
At a neutral pH and derived entirely from water and salt, HOCL is an all-natural disinfectant. It is soothing to the eyes and can help eliminate dangerous viruses and bacteria. Remember, the human body produces hypochlorous acid naturally, to protect the blood vessels. You can’t get any more natural than that!
Hypochlorous Acid is a fantastic all-natural antimicrobial agent. It significantly reduces the number of bacteria around the eyelids and eyelashes. HOCL reduces the bacterial load around our eyes by over 90%. It also reduces inflammation due to bacteria around the eyes.
Hypochlorous acid helps treat common eye conditions, like blepharitis, styes, and some cases of conjunctivitis. HOCL is also essential for treating blepharitis and improving dry and red-eye symptoms.
Microbe Ninja offers an excellent line of low-priced read-to-use hypochlorous acid products. Our 500ppm hypochlorous acid 1-gallon bottle is the most affordable way to use HOCL. Pour a small amount into a spray bottle and dilute down (with filtered water) to reduce the solution to 2.5 PPM. With the eyes closed, spray directly onto the eyelashes. Alternatively, spray the solution onto a cotton pad and gently spread it along the eyelashes and eyelid margins.
On-site hypochlorous acid generators
Businesses (i.e., medical offices) can also benefit from our NinjaGen on-site hypochlorous acid generators. For smaller practices, the NinjaGen Compact will produce a quality pH-neutral HOCL at pennies a gallon.

Note: Shelf life is another key differentiator. Once a bottle of pure hypochlorous acid is opened, it becomes less stable and begins to degrade. Due to its naturally derived ingredients and lack of stabilizers, hypochlorous acid will expire after 30 days once opened. It will, however, maintain its effectiveness once bottled for six months.
