Zoono offers a totally new concept in sanitising, disinfecting and protecting people, homes and businesses.
Today we are under attack by a microscopic army. These microbes arrive in the form of bacteria, viruses, mould, mildew, fungi, algae and other organisms.
Zoono Group is a privately owned New Zealand company that started redeveloping a unique technology 6 years ago – spending the first years improving and re-engineering technology first developed pre WWII. This original technology had several inherent problems such as short shelf life/instability over temperature ranges/difficulty in transportation etc and was stabilised using methanol.
Zoono chemists in New Zealand and Los Angeles went to work and created what is now a 9th generation product.
Initially, the Zoono company focused on the Industrial, Medical and Textiles markets but recently developed a range of products suitable for the consumer market. Research & Development is ongoing and new products are regularly being introduced.
Today, all Zoono products form a covalent bond with a hard surface or skin to not only kill bacteria and viruses present but to also protect the surface for extended periods of time – in the case of hard surfaces this protection lasts up to 30 days and for skin, it protects for at least 24 hours. Zoono is proven to be effective against Bacteria, Viruses, Mould, Algae, Yeast and Mildew and is a broad-spectrum killer. Zoono products are non-toxic and kill by ‘mechanical’ means – a layer of microscopic pins coat the surface and kill the pathogen by piercing and rupturing the cell wall – a process called lysis ( a principle similar to that of a pin popping a balloon). By killing germs in this method (rather than via alcohol dehydration or by poison), it prevents mutation (the development of superbugs) and prevents cross-contamination.
The products are safe to use around children and pets and enjoy food safety approvals in New Zealand and Australia along with approvals in many other countries.
Zoono has been successfully tested against a variety of pathogens including the hospital superbug MRSA plus H1N1 and Norovirus. We have over 100 independent test results from laboratories all over the globe operating under ISO or GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) standards.
Zoono remains totally committed to developing this technology further – product efficacy and reliability is continually challenged and the testing process is ongoing.
