GERMAGIC™ Thyme is our second product in the GERMAGIC series. It combines antimicrobial encapsulation with germicidal thyme essential oil for a more long-lasting and durable effect.
Our research team has identified thyme essential oil to be the most potent amongst hundreds of other natural essential oils. Thymol, a terpene from thyme, plays the prominent role in thyme essential oil’s antimicrobial effect.
GERMAGIC™ Thyme is wide spectrum and has been tested against multiple bacteria, fungi and viruses. GERMAGIC Thyme was found to be effective against Feline calicivirus (FCV), a surrogate for Norovirus. As FCV is a small, non-enveloped virus, it is amongst the most resistant to inactivation by disinfection. According to page 2-3 of US EPA’s “Guideline to Registrants: Process for Making Claims Against Emerging Viral Pathogens Not on EPA-Registered Disinfectant Labels”, being able to inactive FCV is equivalent to being able to inactive emerging coronaviruses, i.e. SARS-CoV-2.
GERMAGIC™ Thyme has been verified by third parties to be safe and effective. It is also a Hong Kong Eco Mark and Made in Hong Kong Mark product.
