Is the chlorine smell typical?

Yes, this is entirely normal. While our products might remind you of a pool, we assure you we didn’t fill the bottle with pool water. Instead, the scent comes from our hypochlorous technology, which shares a similar molecular makeup as chlorine.

What is hypochlorous?

Hypochlorous acid, also commonly referred to as HOCl, is a naturally occurring molecule comprised of hydrogen, oxygen, and chlorine. The body produces hypochlorous acid to fend off infection and foreign body material, such as bacteria. 1

What is the difference between Puracyn and the other
hypochlorous products in the market?

Puracyn is a better hypochlorous formulation because of the additional steps we introduced to make the finished product. The majority of the hypochlorous market manufactures products through a so-called electrochemical activation process. Then they package the hypochlorous electrolyte generated from this process for sales. The proprietary formulation in Puracyn steps further to stabilize the hypochlorous electrolyte in solution. As evident, the useful life of Puracyn is at least six months compared to thirty days in other products. In addition, Innovacyn is the only hypochlorous producer that we know of manufactures in an ISO-certified cleanroom facility – the quality standard required for manufacturing critical pharmaceutical products. We take pride in offering you the highest quality product at a reasonable cost. As a bonus, we have a customer service team that is unmatched.
