Tough on pathogens, gentle on the planet
Virox formulations have a safety profile that, in combination with superior disinfecting efficacy, protects people and animals from pathogens without exposing them to harsh chemicals. Our focus on human and animal safety and environmental sustainability incorporates a One Health® approach and is a legacy Virox will pass on to future generations.
Safety meets efficacy
While powerful disinfectants are easy to formulate, they are often toxic and hazardous, and conversely, many “green” disinfectants typically compromise on performance. Our formulations are unique, with the ideal balance of safety and efficacy. They disinfect against a broad spectrum of pathogens and yet are gentle on users, materials, and the environment.
What makes Virox formulations so different?
- They have the EPA’s lowest available toxicity rating
- They do not require any hazardous symbols or pictograms (GHS)
- They are non-irritating to eyes and skin and do not require personal protection equipment (PPE)
- They do not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
- They are biodegradable
Practicing what we preach
