Why is Organic VActive Gel is better than other products?
A short history as to why we developed the VActive Gel.
Working for many years in clean room quality control, and owning an air handling systems fitted with all technically advanced methods:- Carbon filtration on fresh air, followed by electrostatic precipitator, followed by UV-C lighting, followed by two banks of HEPA Filtration, and still mould formed on the registers of the air conditioning. From there, investigation uncovered a multitude of other solutions from evacuate and fumigate, to the outright dangerous (Ozone), and use of ineffective 10% Tea Tree Oil products.
Why NOT Tea Tree Oil?
Products based on 10 % Tea Tree Oil are in the market but have a low reputation for performance. We interviewed many users of these products and received comments indicating that the musty smells would return quickly and frequently within a day. A number of Consumer Health organisations were developing concerns as early as 2001 on Tea Tree Oil use because of the many reports of sensitisation on people.
Research over time by the European Union’s SCCP1 body, which prepares very thorough investigations on products and materials, shows that anything containing 2% Tea Tree Oil and above is a clear skin and respiratory sensitiser/irritant. The SCCP document also states that safe levels of Tea Tree oil for humans does not work as an antimicrobial agent. Why Organic VActive Gel is better?
7 years of research and improvements created a product which:
Has many different actives, but uses a small amount of Tea Tree for odour recognition, is made to be stable in air, meaning it is long lasting in use, has actives that evaporate at such low rates, the product is completely safe to installers and consumers alike, has FoodSafe approval, works as bacteriostat and fungi stat, making it a very safe product to use, does not create other issues like bactericides do, over the years no reports received from customers on irritation or sensitivity. 100% Organic Deters Mosquitoes 1 References from SCCP/1155/08 “SCCP found that neat TTO and formulations containing 5% TTO can exhibit skin irritancy (SCCP/1155/08, pp. 18). Moreover, neat TTO is a sensitizer in humans (pp. 25).” The TTO monograph submitted by the Norwegian delegation in 2001, indicates that only products having a conc. of 2% or more seem to cause skin reactions ((Council of Europe, 2001: pp. 24).
