The Science

Hygienilac does not employ silver technology and is completely UV stable.

Hygienilac's anti-bacterial properties do not migrate on contact with water.

How does Hygienilac work?
Bacteria

Staph Aureus

  • It prevents the bacteria's access to nutrients so they starve and die
  • It has a kill rate of 99.9 per cent over a 24 hr period
  • It will remain effective for years because of its inherently low water solubility
  • Because of Hygienilac's inherent biocidal properties the furniture can be effective cleaned with Hygienilac cleaner.
What tests have been done?
Bacteria

E Coli

Hygienilac has passed British Standard 6250 tests for severe usage.

The active ingredient has approvals from the following organisations:

  • Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
  • Health and Safety Executive (HSE) approval for indirect or incidental food contact
  • Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

It is non carcinogenic, non mutagenic and non skin sensitising

*Certificate of Analysis dated 4.6.04. The following bacteria were tested against a glass control and showed a 99.9% reduction after 24 hours.

*Certificate of Analysis dated 23.7.04 used against a glass tile control and showed a 99.9% reduction after 24 hours.

*Certificate of Analysis dated 1.7.05 Clostridium difficile showed a 99.9% reduction after 24 hours.

*Certificate of Analysis dated 11.5.07 C difficle spore cells showed a greater than Log 3 reduction obtained after 60 minutes contact time

Hygienilac has received a point 3 award from the NHS Infection Control Rapid Review Panel (Surface Coating Category).
