Sanosil AG is a Swiss industrial company who wanted to develop a chemical which was not only superior to others but was an ecological product that would not harm humans, animals and the environment in any way.

Sanosil disinfectants are the combined 2-phase effect of the main ingredients hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and silver (Ag+).

  1. The components release highly reactive free radicals that immediately begin to attack the cell membrane of the targeted micro-organism.
  1. The oxygen, split off by the hydrogen peroxide, attacks the cell walls of the microorganisms upon direct contact. The chemical reaction of the oxygen with molecules in the cell walls denaturises and destroys these.
  1. This effect is boosted by silver ions that bind to the enzymes, this incapacitates the energy source as well as the metabolic system of the microorganisms and causes rapid death of the microorganism.

To put it simply: the hydrogen peroxide affects the membrane of the microorganisms and the silver affects the inside
