The Science Behind Our Products And Why It Is Important

PathoSans solutions are different. Most conventional cleaners and disinfectants contain many ingredients that are toxic or irritating to people, pets and the planet. Not us. With PathoSans solutions, you can clean and disinfect daily with confidence.


  • Can safely be used without gloves
  • Are better for the environment and drain safe
  • Flexible & safe enough to use virtually anywhere in your home
  • Do not leave streaks or harsh chemical residue

PathoPure removes dirt, grease and grime while PathoNex is a broad-spectrum disinfectant, food sanitizer, virucide that is 99.9% effective, eliminates odors and reduces cross-contamination of bacteria on non-treated, hard, non-porous surfaces.

You can find more details on the science of PathoSans solutions below. But, if you’re like most customers, you’re most interested in what’s in the solutions, what’s not in the solutions and why they’re suitable for daily cleaning and disinfecting.

Both Solutions Contain:

Softened Water and very small amounts of an active ingredient.

PathoPure’s natural active ingredient is sodium hydroxide, one of the most common ingredients in detergents and soaps.

PathoNex’s natural active ingredient is hypochlorous acid, which is actually produced by the human body as part of our immune system.

Conventional chemicals are often toxic and can endanger human health – both for the people using the chemicals and those who are exposed to chemical residue or lingering fragrances. They generally contain high levels of active ingredients to ensure effectiveness even when stored for long periods of time. PathoSans solutions are a safer alternative to conventional chemical cleaners.

Our solutions do NOT contain any of the following:

Additives, Alcohol, Ammonia, Buffers, Butoxyethanol, Chelating agents, Colorants, Foaming agents, Hydrogen peroxide, Nonylphenol ethoxylates, Perfumes, Peroxide bleach, Phosphates


Commonly referred to as electrochemically-activated solutions (ECAS), PathoSans solutions are produced using patented technology to ensure highly effective cleaning and disinfection without being irritating to eyes, skin and nose. PathoPure sodium hydroxide cleaner/degreaser and PathoNex hypochlorous acid disinfectant/sanitizer are produced by the electrolysis of salt and water. The solutions offer both high-performance and a gentle way to clean and disinfect. ECA solutions are different. Made from salt, water and electricity, they can clean and disinfect effectively with low levels of the active ingredients.

ECAS and How They Are Made

Electrochemical activation (ECA) processes go by many names: electrolyzed water, electro-activated water, electrolyzed oxidizing water and electro-chemically activated solutions. Here’s a simple breakdown of what the process looks like:

The Result? PathoSans Solutions!

PathoPure is an alkaline solution that both cleans and degreases surfaces. The disinfectant, PathoNex, is a hypochlorous acid solution. Hypochlorous acid is a naturally occurring chemical that is produced by our white blood cells to fight bacteria and inflammation after an infection or trauma. It kills viruses, germs and other pathogens, and because it is produced by the human body, it is non-toxic to humans.
