Suprox and its efficacy- Peer reviewed papers. AKA: science. Blog 9th January 2013
Happy New Year to you and your families. We mentioned in our December blog that we would
explain why we are so excited about our new cleaner ‘Suprox’. Today we are presenting the
independent data to back up our claims.
The science behind Suprox has been documented and studied for over 200 years. In fact, a wide
range of bodies from the Soviet space agency and the American Environmental Protection Agency to
a range of medical, pharmaceutical and water organisations have studied the use of the active
And what is the active ingredient? Hypochlorous acid. The very same that is produced in the white
blood cells of human beings and has decades worth of independent scientific analysis to show how
effective it is. Want to know more?
How about these Peer Reviewed Papers discussing the efficacy of the active ingredient:
