How does NanoBio Protect work?

The effectiveness of NanoBio Protect is derived from BlueWillow’s patented nanotechnology. NanoBio Protect’s active ingredient is benzalkonium chloride (BZK), a common skin antiseptic that has been used in humans for more than 75 years. Our proprietary formulation integrates BZK onto the surface of nano-droplets, providing significant advantages in comparison to other skin antiseptics.

In lab tests, NanoBio Protect has demonstrated the ability to kill 99.99% of germs tested.
