What is SANI-99™?

SANI-99™ is an innovative medical-grade disinfectant solution designed to redefine disinfection and infection practices. It offers a holistic approach to maintaining hygiene standards while addressing challenges posed by traditional disinfectants.


How does SANI-99™ offer an alternative to traditional disinfectants?

SANI-99™ presents a groundbreaking solution. It targets and eliminates pathogens without alcohol or chlorine. Its unmatched potency exceeds bleach by 2,000 times, ensuring exceptional effectiveness. Additionally, it is gentle on the skin, and accidents like swallowing or eye contact pose no harm.


Is SANI-99™ suitable for both surface disinfection and hand sanitisation?

Absolutely! SANI-99™ serves a dual purpose. It can be used both as a surface disinfectant and a hand sanitiser, providing comprehensive infection control.


How effective is SANI-99™ and has it been tested in an accredited laboratory?

SANI-99™ is highly effective, proven to eliminate bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and enveloped viruses. It has undergone rigorous testing in accredited laboratories, following European Standard EN and ilac.MRA/SANAS protocols, ensuring its certified efficacy.


What makes SANI-99™ the preferred hand and surface disinfectant?

SANI-99™ excels with unmatched potency, skin-friendliness, certified effectiveness against pathogens, and sustained protection. Its 7-Log reduction ensures thorough pathogen elimination. It's also eco-friendly, reducing plastic waste and requiring fewer transports. With SANI-99™, you get powerful, safe, and sustainable disinfection.


What sets SANI-99™apart from alcohol-based disinfectants?

The main distinction lies in efficacy and user-friendliness. Alcohol-based products offer short-lived effectiveness and diluted alcohol might not match claims. They come with strong odors, flammability risks, and potential skin damage. In contrast, SANI-99™ remains active longer, isn't flammable, and has demonstrated a 'soothing' effect on the skin. It stands out as a safer, more enduring option.


How effective is SANI-99™ after being sprayed onto a surface?

The effectiveness of SANI-99™ lasts until the next contamination occurs. It provides protection for the duration between applications, ensuring a continuous defence against pathogens.


Has SANI-99™ been tested for use as a hand sanitiser?

Absolutely. SANI-99™ underwent an additional EN 1276 test, proving its efficacy in killing 99.999% of all pathogenic bacteria within 10 - 30 seconds, making it a reliable choice for hand sanitisation.


What are the potential health risks associated with traditional disinfectants?

Chemical disinfectants can pose health risks due to their potential toxicity. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in many conventional disinfectants are linked to chronic respiratory problems, allergies, asthma, and even serious health issues such as cancer and autoimmune diseases. Skin irritations and damage are also common side effects.


Why do governing bodies recommend using alcohol-based disinfectants instead of SANI-99™?

Governing bodies have historically endorsed alcohol-based disinfectants due to their longstanding use. However, SANI-99™ is a new, alternative solution recently introduced to the market, featuring revolutionary technology. While alcohol-based disinfectants have decades of history, SANI-99™ is actively promoting its advanced approach. The more we highlight SANI-99™ as the preferred choice for surface and hand disinfection, the greater our collective safety.


What is the significance of the 7-Log reduction achieved by SANI-99™?

Achieving a 7-Log reduction (99.99995%), SANI-99™ stands as a top-tier non-alcohol-based disinfectant. This potency ensures thorough elimination of pathogens, making it a superior choice for infection control.


Can SANI-99™ effectively destroy different types of pathogens?

Yes, SANI-99™ has been tested and proven effective against a range of pathogens. It can destroy bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and enveloped viruses, ensuring comprehensive protection.


How does SANI-99™ compare to traditional disinfectants in terms of longevity?

SANI-99™ offers a long-lasting effect. Unlike many conventional products, it doesn't evaporate quickly. It remains on surfaces and hands, providing extended protection over time.


How has SANI-99™ been tested for its efficacy?

SANI-99™ has undergone rigorous testing following the European standard EN lab protocol. It has been proven to effectively eliminate pathogenic bacteria in as little as 10 seconds and tackle stubborn contaminants within 5 minutes.


How does SANI-99™ contribute to sustainability?

SANI-99™ champions eco-friendliness. It is formulated as a powder, eliminating the need for single-use plastic bottles. Our "One bottle for Life" approach reduces plastic waste and minimises carbon emissions.


Is there a substantial reduction in transportation needs with SANI-99™?

Absolutely. Compared to pre-mixed disinfectants, SANI-99™ requires significantly fewer transports, resulting in a notable decrease in carbon emissions and fuel consumption.


Will SANI-99™ bleach fabrics?

SANI-99™ is formulated primarily for surface and hand disinfection. While it's not designed to bleach fabrics, it's important to note that certain fabrics are more prone to bleaching than others. For instance, viscose is highly susceptible to bleaching, while polyester is less affected. Always remember that disinfectants are intended for surfaces, not fabrics.
