What They Didn't Teach You in Science Class about HOCl

You’re stuck. You’ve done countless Google searches for “skincare products for acne” or “skincare products for eczema” and have painstakingly plowed through every result. You have a drawer full of rejects and it feels like nothing works. We’ve all been there. You don’t have to wave your white surrender flag at the skin gods anymore. Prepare to be introduced to the holy grail for anyone who with psoriasis, acne, eczema, sensitivity or really just skin at all!

Tower 28 SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray is here! You're probably wondering, what makes this product different? Four simple letters answer that question: HOCl, is THE active ingredient in SOS. But what is it?

HOCl (or hypochlorous acid if you want to sound like a fancy scientist) is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in white blood cells that fights bacteria and protects the skin. Through a process of combination called electrolysis, scientists combine natural ingredients like water and salt to transform them into this powerhouse compound.

Your body (and your brain) knows what to do with it because it’s naturally occurring in your immune system. Just like eating a daily multivitamin chew to improve bodily wellness, hypochlorous acid skincare can be used topically to boost skin health and healing. So yes, it is 100% natural and the perfect skincare ingredient for sensitive skin.

A rule of thumb: if skin is irritated, hypochlorous acid can help! Acne, eczema, sunburns, rashes and angry piercings are prime examples of when hypochlorous acid can work its soothing magic.

Hypochlorous acid is a two-for-one ingredient: it soothes the skin and purifies it by fighting bacteria and reducing inflammation in damaged skin. It also works as preventative skincare when used to keep skin clean skin post-makeup or post-workout.

SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray is here to save the day.
