What Does Hygienilac Do?
Quite simply, it kills superbugs. In fact, it’s proven to kill 99.9% of almost all species of bacteria, including the deadly MRSA, salmonella and E.coli, and goes on killing them for the lifetime of the additive for up to ten years.
COMPLETELY HARMLESS TO US, DEADLY TO SUPERBUGS.
It is also non-carcinogenic, non-mutagenic and non-skin sensitising. It is even approved by the FDA and HSE for indirect or incidental contact with food. In other words, it is completely harmless to us, but unique and devastatingly effective against bacteria.
How Does It Work?
Hygienilac stops the bacteria getting the nutrients they need, with the result that 99.9% simply starve and die within 24 hours. And Hygienilac doesn’t just work once. Thanks to its low water solubility and imperviousness to UV light which stops it breaking down, it goes on working for up to ten years. You can see more detail here.
There is no discolouration whatsoever as a result of using Hygienilac, so it’s more aesthetically pleasing too.
Proven safe thanks to stringent testing.
The beauty of Hygienilac is that not only is it proven to kill 99.9% of almost all species of superbugs.
