Aqua4power is an alcohol-free product which, unlike alcohol and chlorhexidine, is not toxic to the body. The active substance hypochlorous acid eliminates viruses up to 99.9% in 15-30 seconds. Also as effective as hand alcohol and alcohol but is much gentler on the skin.


Hypochlorous acid

HOCl is a naturally occurring substance that is produced in our white blood cells to fight bacteria and inflammation after an infection. HOCl provides a unique power to eradicate dangerous organisms without damaging our cells. HOCl is one of the only agents that can heal our wounds while being lethal to almost all known dangerous bacteria and viruses that threaten our health.


Aqua4power has been tested against SARS-CoV-2 in collaboration with the Swedish Veterinary Institute (SVA).

The virus was exposed to Aqua4power directly from the bottle and the effect was tested against 15, 30 and 60 seconds.

After only 15 seconds, the active virus had been reduced by 99.9% and was no longer contagious.


Hypochlorous acid worldwide is tested and effective against a wide range of microorganisms including spores, bacteria and other viruses (enclosed and uncovered).


Active substance:

Active chlorine released from hypochlorous acid

Content 500 ppm:

Water 99.75%, sodium chloride (salt) 0.2% and mixed oxidants 0.05%, hypochlorous acid, sodium hypochlorite (HClO and NaClO). Decomposes to water and salt after expiration date.

The disinfectant is applied and air dried. Does not need to be wiped off.


The Swedish Chemicals Agency has decided on a new time-limited exemption for the supply and use of disinfectants. The exemption applies from 17 September 2020 until 15 March 2021.


Agents containing these substances may already be sold without authorization for use on surfaces, veterinary hygiene or surfaces that come into contact with food or animal feed. This applies as long as the substances are evaluated in the EU review program for this use.

Aqua4power currently does not have an approval to be used as a hand disinfectant and is therefore not sold as such.

Today Aqua4power is sold as a disinfectant and in ready to use solutions which can be used both as a hand and surface disinfectant.


As described above, products with an active substance of Active Chlorine released from hypochlorous acid can be used as disinfection for human hygiene until March 15, 2021 without a separate approval.

The Aquacode trademark is partially registered in the Article-95 list, which we can present upon request. This is usually required to sell machinery and produce the liquid within the EU.
