About Avenova

Avenova is the only truly pure HOCl product that manages the overpopulation of bacteria and is free of bleach impurities, making it safe and effective for long-term use. Avenova is designed for the removal of foreign material including microorganisms and debris on and around the eyelid margins that may be due to Blepharitis, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), and Dry Eye.

Clinical Studies

Manages Bacteria Overpopulation1

In a study published in Clinical Ophthalmology, Avenova was shown to reduce the bacterial load significantly without altering the diversity of bacterial species remaining on the skin.

Penetrates Biofilm, killing underlying pathogens2

Avenova has been shown to penetrate biofilm and kill the underlying pathogens.

Inactivates Lipase3

Avenova has been tested to inactivate lipase.

In Vitro Comparisons with Betadine4
