So, why is the formula so important?
Think of it like baking. If five chefs use the same 10 ingredients to bake five cakes, none will taste identical. The chefs will use different ingredient amounts. Different techniques. Different baking times. Some cakes will be sweeter. Some will be lighter. And one will emerge superior.
Independently tested and clinically proven.
Tested against 22 challenge organisms, DAB killed 99.99% of them within 15 seconds and showed persistent, hours-long protection compared to just minutes for alcohol-based products. But don’t take our word for it. DAB was recently featured in the American Journal of Infection Control.
The science behind DAB.
DAB eradicates 99.99% of bacteria, including the enterococcus faecium bacteria, now shown to be immune to alcohol-based hand sanitizers. The active ingredient is benzalkonium chloride, shortened to BZK, an organic salt classified as a quaternary ammonium compound. Along with BZK, DAB utilizes a proprietary ratio
of specific components.
DAB is clinically proven to kill:
