The coronavirus changed a lot of things and some things may never be the same again. This global health crisis caused the public at large to rethink or notice how germs are developed and spread. With so much misinformation circulating after the initial scares and new information emerging, Total Sanitizer would like to shine a light on some key facts about viruses. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the coronavirus is an enveloped virus. Enveloped viruses have an outer membrane resembling a crown appearance, where the outer layer is damaged relatively easily with disinfectants. Our Total Sanitizer formula includes an active ingredient called BZK that stops viruses after use and antimicrobial properties that slow and retard the growth of bacteria. Health Leaders points to a new list released by the EPA suggesting that disinfectants containing quaternary ammonium compounds such as BZK are suitable for use against bacteria, pathogens, and viruses.
