Is Adya Clarity Battery Acid?
Fact Check: False!
Quick fact: Battery acid is highly corrosive. It will cause burns if it comes into contact with skin.
A minute amount (5%) of sulfuric acid is in Themarox®, the raw material that’s used to make Adya Clarity®. To produce Adya Clarity®, Themarox® is diluted down 10 times in water, making the concentration of sulfuric acid in a bottle of Adya Clarity® 0.5%. Then, Adya Clarity® is diluted down 1,000 times to treat drinking water. After Adya Clarity® is added to water, the concentration of sulfuric acid is 0.0005%, which is 28 times less than what is found in alcoholic beverages, according to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) good manufacturing practice.
Because the sulfuric content is so small in Adya Clarity®, and it contains approximately 25-33% complex mineral salts, it is not caustic to the skin and does not cause any adverse side effects to humans or the environment. In contrast, battery acid, which is composed of approximately 30-50% sulfuric acid, is highly corrosive and will burn if it comes in contact with skin. Battery acid causes many other adverse effects as well.
