DISINFECTION PLATFORM

A sustainable botanical technology: Proprietary formulations with strong antimicrobial and cleaning efficacy.

 

Active Ingredient

The THYMOX TECHNOLOGY comes from the heart of our formula: the active is Thymol. Thymol  is a component of thyme oil, basically the same as the plant extract. This plant has long been used by humans for, among other things, as food preservatives.

Thyme oil is listed on the 25B Minimal Risk Pesticide.

Thymol is a GRAS molecule (Generally Recognized As Safe) listed as a food additive in many countries

Thymol mode of action : induces instability in microorganisms’ membrane, causing cell content leakage and death.

 

Surfactants

Surfactants incorporated in our disinfectants are also of botanical origin, and are usually derived from vegetable oils. These ingredients play key roles in the formulations: they stabilize the solution while giving its cleaning properties. The cleaning aspect of a green disinfectant is crucial since it allows mechanical removing of microorganisms from surfaces, thus increasing its efficiency.

At Laboratoire M2, we are committed to sustainable development practices. That is why we chose to formulate our disinfectants with ingredients derived from botanical origin.
