From Nature to Skincare: The Antibacterial Strength of Hypochlorous Acid

From Nature to Skincare: The Antibacterial Strength of Hypochlorous Acid

Hypochlorous is made naturally within our bodies to fight infection, inflammation and bacteria.

At Within, we’ve harnessed the power of hypochlorous acid through the simplicity of salt, water and electricity to make Miracle Mist. Our pure hypochlorous acid formula can perform many miracles, hence the name, with one being the ability to kill 99.99% of bacteria on your skin in under a minute.

This article will explore what antibacterial means and how having Miracle Mist in your routine will make your skin happier and healthier.


Antibacterial, What Does it Mean?


A substance that kills bacteria or stops them from growing and causing disease.

Antibacterial agents are a group of materials that fight against pathogenic bacteria, killing or reducing the metabolic activity of bacteria and their pathogenic effect, which can be damaging to your skin barrier.

By incorporating Miracle Mist into your skincare routine, morning or night, you can simultaneously protect and hydrate your skin barrier, helping your skin be fresh, plump and healthy.


How is Miracle Mist Antibacterial?

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is a natural substance found in all mammals that fights a wide range of germs. Our immune cells produce HOCl when we get injured or infected and works to disrupt harmful cells by attaching to their outer layer, effectively breaking them down and killing them.

HOCl is a strong disinfectant. When it mixes with water, it breaks into parts that can destroy proteins. It also kills viruses by damaging their DNA, making them harmless.


What Does Antibacterial mean for your Skin?

Including an antibacterial product, like Miracle Mist, into your skincare routine provides a range of benefits for your skin.

For example:

Prevents clogged pores Reduces blemishes and breakouts
Protect your skin barrier Healthy, glowing skin

Promote wound healing

Reduces scarring


Remember, healthy skin doesn’t mean glass skin.

At Within, it means a healthy skin barrier that can effectively protect your skin from infection, maintain a healthy pH and retain moisture. 



Miracle Mist can ensure your skin is bacteria free, especially from environmental toxins that we encounter every day. In your skincare routines, this means your skin is left clean and refreshed before applying your next steps.
