What is Germagic?
| Cameron Vazehgoo
GERMAGIC™ Thyme is the second product from the GERMAGIC series. It combines antimicrobial encapsulation with germicidal thyme essential oil for a more long-lasting and durable effect. This protects surfaces and fabrics from viruses, bacteria, and spores.
The 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 product.
