Benzalkonium Chloride against Coronavirus: COVID-19 (Written April 2020, Revised July 2020)
Benzalkonium Chloride is the active ingredient in our hand and surface sanitisers. Here are articles found, in relation to the efficacy of Benzalkonium Chloride against Coronaviruses.
- The Singapore Environment agency has tested several active ingredients against killing COVID-19, including Benzalkonium Chloride. Find the link below...
2. The 'European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control' has also tested that previous strains of Coronavirus have been effectively killed with Benzalkonium Chloride. See below...
4. This one shows 3 studies over the last 50 years with the most recent showing Benzalkonium Chloride as outstanding at killing. See below...
From reading these articles it is interesting that Benzalkonium Chloride has been tested at 0.02-0.05% & effective at 0.05% in comparison to their test of 70% alcohol, which seems disproportionate. In Nilaqua sanitiser we have 1.5% of Benzalkonium Chloride - 30 times more than the amount tested in these studies.
What we know...
- Nilaqua is a virucidal killer, killing Norovirus
- Nilaqua lasts for 30 days on surfaces and 6 hours on hands = effective at minimising cross contamination.
We believe the WHO only notify alcohol based sanitisers because if they state alcohol free, it could mean any active ingredient, and not all actives are reliable. The general public are also making their own sanitisers, which are not reliable.
Other Benzalkonium Chloride sanitiser companies in the US, are fighting for the approval by the CDC. It is interesting that the CDC will not approve Benzalkonium Chloride, even with the rest of the data. Check the link below...
