The need for safer alternatives
to counter the threat of pathogens

Across the globe, hygiene and sanitation has become more important than ever. Humans are increasingly exposed to harmful pathogens. This is driving demand for greater protection against contamination.

Traditional, legacy disinfectants are loaded with harsh chemicals such as alcohols, hydrogen peroxide, phenolic compounds and quaternary ammonium compounds. While these chemicals can combat pathogens, they also pose a threat to humans, animals, plants and the environment.

For instance, alcohol is flammable, hydrogen peroxide can cause corrosion, phenolic compounds can irritate skin and quaternary ammonium compounds can cause long-term health issues such as cancer. When these chemicals enter the environment – air, water and soil – they accumulate (non-biodegradable) and can threaten waterways and wildlife.

While disinfectants and sanitisers are needed for public health, there needs to be safer alternatives that are also kinder to the environment. This is the responsibility of the current generation for future generations.

Finding the right balance between
safety and efficacy
