Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant FAQArianne Miller
Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant is the product you want when an effective, non-chemical solution for disinfecting, sanitizing, cleaning and deodorizing is needed. Bioesque guarantees that this product is able to eliminate viruses, fungi, bacteria and mold within the following time periods on hard surfaces:
- Kills most viruses within one minute, including HIV and coronaviruses.
- Kills bacteria within two minutes.
- Eliminates fungi, molds and tuberculosis in three minutes.
- Disinfects norovirus in four minutes.
Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant Solution disinfects, sanitizes, cleans and deodorizes by combining essential, complementary ingredients that tackle each of these important tasks to maintain health and cleanliness for the home, office and workplace.
Why is it Called Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant?
The active ingredient in Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant is thymol, a natural product from the thyme plant, but also found in certain fruit and citrus oils, as well as some cooking herbs. And although the FDA lists thymol as “safe for human consumption,” at disinfectant strengths it is not meant to be eaten! Thymol also naturally breaks down over time.
Therefore, to preserve the effectiveness of Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant during storage, sodium citrate is another ingredient. Derived from citric acid, commonly found in limes and lemons, sodium citrate prevents the breakdown of the mission critical thymol.
Adding to the fresh grapefruit and lemongrass scent of Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant is terpineol. Derived from many different plants, the National Library of Medicine states that besides its use as a fragrance, terpineol also acts as a disinfectant and is considered safe for a variety of human uses.
Together these ingredients, along with others and in the right proportions, lead to what is called “Thymox Technology,” a safer form of disinfecting agent, without the high percentages of chemicals and irritants common in other brands.
How Does Thymol Disinfect?
When used as directed, thymol is considered effective for “destroying mold” (The Merck Index), and as a fungicide, tuberculocide, virucide and medical disinfectant (EPA). Thymol either directly leads to the destruction of microorganisms, or isolates them and prevents their spread and reproduction.
How Does Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant Clean?
In addition to its disinfecting properties, Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant also cleans surfaces through the inclusion of two common surfactants — sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate. As surfactants, they make it easier for the disinfectant solution to come in contact with the microorganisms it needs to kill. They also help surround dirt and oil particles, removing them from surfaces when you wipe away the solution.
How Do I Use Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant?
Use Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant as you would any other disinfectant. The solution should not be diluted. It comes ready for use and can be applied directly to surfaces by spraying. Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant also works effectively with ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers. It can even be used as an air deodorizer. Follow the directions found on the label to ensure the intended results.
