Lab tests confirm Lysol products’ active ingredients are 99.9% effective against COVID-19 virus
Lab tests conducted by Microbac Laboratories, Inc., in compliance with European EN 14476 and US EPA ASTM 1052/1053 international standards, showed that Lysol products are effective in inactivating the virus strain which causes Covid-19 pandemic—demonstrating reduction of infectious virus in 5 minutes. The study published in the American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC), the official publication of the Association of Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, thus confirm that Lysol is indeed 99.9% effective against the novel coronavirus. “Our hope is that these findings will be useful to the infection prevention and control community in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a positive development and is fully consistent with our expectations. We will continue to develop scientific evidence to support our product portfolio to enable effective, science-led communication around hygiene,” said Dr. Bruce Charlesworth, RB Chief Medical Officer.
Lysol Philippines has also been partnering with like-minded organizations for concerted efforts towards controlling the outbreak. This is as seen in its recent partnerships with the Philippine Red Cross to boost mass testing especially among vulnerable groups, and Discovery Hospitality Corporation for a disinfection program in its hotel and resort properties.
