Tested & verified effective in the UK
Verified to protect against viruses, including COVID-19 for 3+ hours, Virisafe combines anti-bacterial PMD (Citriodiol™) active ingredient, with a non-toxic alcohol base and nourishing essential oils to create products that are the natural and protective sanitising solutions for every Malawian business and household.
Kwandama Hills Plantation is working to get its lemon eucalyptus oil back to Africa after processing in the UK to create PMD (Citriodiol™) to help fight COVID19. While alcohol-based sanitisers have an instant effect, anyone can get immediately reinfected as soon as a virus makes contact with that user. With its PMD active ingredient, Virisafe provides a unique special element that gives lasting protection.
In 2004, at the outbreak of SARS 1 virus, trials were successfully done to show PMD has an effective residual ingredient that provides a lasting anti-viral effect. It does this by attacking the lipid envelope of certain viruses. These included the family of Coronavirus’ and was shown to be effective against SARS 1 and also flu. In August 2020, UK's Ministry of Defence DTSL researchers conducted further tests that showed a 90% efficacy to kill the virus that leads to COVID19, following their procurement of thousands of PMD-based product to help protect front line workers in the world’s current coronavirus fight.
PMD competes well with other effective virucides and results from recent Coronavirus’ tests show a very good anti-viral effect.
PMD, known as Citriodiol™ in the UK, is a natural active ingredient mainly used in natural insect repellents, such as Mosiguard. Produced in the United Kingdom by Citrefine,our PMD is made from essential oils extracted from the leaves of the Corymbia citriodora (a lemon-scented eucalyptus tree) that we grow in Malawi on our 6,500-hectare Kwandama Hills Plantation. After undergoing a distillation and refinement process the p-Menthane 3,8 diol is made.
PMD has anti-bacterial properties, and proven virucide action – this means it deactivates and destroys viruses. Mixed together with an alcohol base, it is a powerful sanitiser. Spraying it onto masks, clothing and surfaces can help reduce spread and provide an extra protective barrier of protection against viruses - including COVID19.
People have known for centuries that eucalyptus has healing properties.
And now ,we also have toxicological data from the European Biocide Directive that shows PMD to be an effective, natural, safe and non-toxic product. At 65-75% ethyl-alcohol base, Virisafe is also well above the 60% international standard for sanitising products. Virisafe’s raw material is sourced in Malawi and is of 97% purity.
We specialise in high quality products that are Malawian made and owned.
