A New Generation of Antimicrobial Experience
The Environmentally Friendly and Food Safe Episode

Environmentally Friendly and Non Toxic
One Key Antimicrobial Formula
Throughout history, mankind has been in a continuous war with bacteria, viruses and germs. We don’t always win; perhaps not until the appearance of two research products from New Zealand, namely Zoono Z-71® and GermFree24®, the one key revolutionary formula from Zoono that have been demonstrated effectiveness in laboratory, clinical, and field test trials against influenza A virus subtype H1N1 (swine flu), MERS, MRSA, tuberculosis, E.Coli, Legionella, Salmonella, Listeria, as well as a variety of bacteria, viruses, mould, fungi and mildew. “We are happy to have the honour of introducing ZOONO products to the health and environment conscious Hong Kong people” says Mr Michael Chan, Managing Director of Will Power International Development Limited, ZOONO’s sole distributor for Hong Kong and Macau.
Conventional disinfectants normally kill germs by using phenolic disinfectants, heavy metals, halogens (e.g. chlorine), bleach, alcohols, detergents, chemicals, oxidizing agents, and even radiation. They are a bit too toxic for human beings, and usually do a lot of harm to the environment. Zoono hygiene products are non toxic (their LD50 – lethal dose toxicity is equivalent to that of vitamin C); they kill pathogens by mechanically breaking them down (a process called lysis – a principle similar to that of a pin popping a balloon) instead of by alcohol dehydration or by chemical poisoning. Zoono antimicrobial products have shown a remarkable residual effect that can outlast most, if not all, of the antibacterial / disinfectant brands currently on the market.
“All Zoono products forms a covalent bond with a hard surface or skin to not only kill 99.99% of bacteria and viruses present but to also protect the surface for extended periods of time – in the case of hard surfaces this protection lasts up to a month and for skin it protects for at least 24 hours.” says Paul Hyslop, Managing Director and CEO of Zoono Group of Companies. “Zoono products have been proven effective against bacteria, viruses, mould, algae, yeast and mildew and is a broad spectrum killer.” Paul added. Zoono products have obtained all relevant approvals globally including NZFSA, USFDA, AQIS, and even Halal.
The basic technology behind has been in existence since the German scientists first created the molecule and employed it with sanitizing submarines before and during the World War II. However, this base technology had several inherent problems, including very short shelf life, deactivation and loss of efficacy outside a narrow temperature band, etc.. Zoono scientists in California and New Zealand successfully re-engineered the technology. All Zoono products have been extensively tested by reputable laboratories, universities and testing facilities in the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Japan, Turkey, and China.
Mr Matthew Newman, General Manager of Clear Facilities Limited – a reputable cleaning services provider in New Zealand whose clientele includes world-renowned corporations and brand names – added, “Zoono products are colourless, odourless, non-leaching, environmentally safe, non-corrosive and whilst completely safe for humans and animals, is deadly for a wide range of bacteria, mould, fungi, yeasts, and viruses.”
Zoono products are considered to be “Food Safe” and able to be used in extreme hygiene environments including abattoirs, fish processing, poultry processing and pharmaceutical plants.
Zoono provides a wide range of environmentally friendly, trusted, high quality, long lasting and durable surface-acting antimicrobial products for commercial, industrial, health consumer and residential use.
