Botanical Antimicrobial Cleaner or BAC is a game-changer in the fight against pathogens, bacteria, and mold. Its botanical nature ensures non-toxicity, making it safe for animals, humans, and the environment.
Benefits of BAC
BAC can be used in various animal facilities, including poultry farms, livestock barns, and animal shelters. Its versatility and effectiveness make it an ideal choice for maintaining hygiene in diverse settings. Use for cleaning animals, equipment, facilities, washbasins, transportation equipment, trucks, and foot baths.
The use of BAC offers numerous benefits, including effective disinfection safety for animals and workers, and environmental sustainability. Its botanical nature ensures it is non-toxic and safe for use as anti-microbial residual cleaning (residual cleaning helps long term, not just for the moment of cleaning).
How does it work?
BAC disinfectant, with a pH of 2.3, utilizes micro emulsion True Micro-fluidized Botanical Oils, phenols, and citric acid as its active ingredients – making it effective against enveloped viruses through multiple mechanisms:
- True Micro-fluidized Botanical Oils contain compounds with antimicrobial properties. These oils penetrate the viral envelopes, disrupting its structure, and inhibiting viral replication.
- Low pH (2.3) creates an acidic environment that can disrupt the viral envelope. Enveloped viruses have a lipid bilayer envelope, and the acidic pHi can damage and destabilize this envelope, rendering the virus inactive.
- Phenols will denature proteins and dissolve lipids. It can effectively break down the viral envelope and inactivate the virus.
- Terpenes, which are major components of essential oils (EO), have demonstrated various modes of action against viruses.
- Citric acid is an organic acid that can further enhance the acidic environment, contributing to the disruption of the viral envelope. It also has some antimicrobial properties.
A standout feature of BAC is its 7 to 14-day residual cleaning efficiency. BAC’s cleaning residual will increase its efficiency and effectiveness in killing and removing viruses (such as HPAI (H5N1) by providing prolonged protection against viral contamination. The mode of action is described below:
- Initial Inactivation: During application, the active ingredients in BAC work to inactivate the virus by disrupting its envelope, denaturing proteins.
- Residual Coating: A residual coating is formed on surfaces where it was sprayed. This coating acts as a protective barrier ensuring that the environment remains antagonistic to the virus due to BAC’s active ingredients.
Residual cleaning shield in field use:
BAC will prevent the regrowth of mold on surfaces, exterior concrete, and other surfaces. The ability of BAC to prevent mold growth on a concrete surface exposed to daily environmental conditions for 14 days indicates a residual action. Residual action in disinfectants or antimicrobial products means that they continue to provide protection or effectiveness for an extended period after the initial application – even when exposed to environmental conditions like rain, sun, heat, and cold.
BAC’s effectiveness yields positive results in porcine, cattle, and dairy facilities. Animal facilities in Kansas and Iowa saw a 25 to 60 percent reduction in mortality. The marked reduction in mortality and the prevention of mold growth underline its residual activity and suitability for diverse agricultural settings.
In conclusion, BAC stands as a revolutionary approach to maintaining hygiene and safety in animal agriculture. Its botanical formula, proven efficacy, and long-term benefits position it as a leading solution for the industry. As we compare BAC to traditional chemical disinfectants, the advantages in safety, efficacy, and environmental impact become clear. Embrace the botanical revolution with BAC, ensuring a safer and more sustainable future for your animal agriculture practices.
