Safe for Use Around Children

Powerful Ionic Silver-Based Spray Ideal for Use Near Children
Purchase Microbecide™ On-line
For more than 16 years, Child Safety Network (CSN) has been working to build awareness of and solve child safety issues. In 2005 CSN began issuing challenges to companies to manufacture and sell products that were safer for use near children. CSN encourages companies to invest money in research and development to create, re-engineer or reformulate commonly used yet dangerous products into safe products for use where children may come into contact with them. Ionic silver based products such as Pure Hard Surface Disinfectant™ (in the United States) and Microbecide® Silver Ion Spray (in the Asia Pacific Region) are formulated and marketed specifically for use in childcare facilities and family homes with children. Based on silver dihydrogen citrate, these products safely and effectively answer CSN's challenge as a child safe product.

Safe for Use Around Children
Use claims include use on children's toys, toy boxes, play tables and activity centers, jungle gyms, playpens, child car seats, strollers and diaper changing tables. The US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) registration of such sensitive use sites, emphasizes the "least-toxic" characteristics of products. These claims allow use in daycare centers, preschools, schools, gymnasiums and children's activity centers, as well as disinfection of hard surfaces including those in restaurants, homes and medical facilities.

In order to receive the "Safe Family Seal of Approval," CSN child advocates review the safety and value of a product including numerous and extensive EPA reports and tests on the product's efficacy and toxicity.

New Industry Benchmark: Lower Toxicity with Higher Efficacy
Toxic chemicals, like ammonium chloride, have been the standard means of hard surface disinfection for the past three decades. An ionic silver complex is both less toxic and more powerful.

Based on the EPA toxicity categorization of antimicrobial products ranging from Category I (high toxicity) down to Category IV, silver dihydrogen citrate is a Category IV antimicrobial for which precautionary labeling statements are normally not required. This compares with Category II warning statements for most leading brands of antimicrobial products.

Silver dihydrogen citrate's high efficacy and low toxicity set a new industry benchmark. For example, although Microbecide® silver Ion Spray is safe for use around children, the silver ion-based product kills dangerous organisms in only 30 seconds - 20 times faster than the claims made by the leading competitor. Leading brand household sprays declare a 10-minute time against three widespread disease-causing bacteria: Staph, Pseudomonas and Salmonella, but Microbecide® Silver Ion Sprayprovides protection without delivering poison at the same time.


Registered claims for silver dihydrogen citrate include a 30 second kill time and a 24 hour residual kill on standard indicator bacteria, a 2 minute kill time on the resistant bacteria MRSE and VRE, a 10 minute kill time on fungi, a 30 second kill time on HIV Type I, and a 10 minute kill time on other viruses.
