Watch the Benefect Story Video to learn more about how and why Benefect was discovered.

How can a disinfectant be less toxic than vinegar?

In nature, plants produce germ-killing 'essential oils' to protect themselves from invading microbes, like how our bodies produce antibodies for our protection. Benefect is a revolutionary blend of these antimicrobial extracts, from botanical essential oils, and achieves remarkable efficacy ...without using any traditional synthetic chemicals.

To put it simply, Benefect is a 'plant immune system' in a bottle.

Over 5,000 years of history shows that microbes do not build up a tolerance or resistance to the antimicrobial action of essential oils. The concentrations of essential oils required to kill microbes have not changed during this entire period. On the other hand, current germ-killing practices have led to highly resistant organisms, which require stronger, more toxic chemicals and increasingly complicated disinfecting procedures...in just 60 years.

This groundbreaking botanical technology is proven to kill over 99.99% of bacteria & surpasses the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's efficacy requirements for broad spectrum hospital disinfectants.

We have all seen the recent media coverage on 'superbugs' or germs that are now resistant to our strongest antibiotics. If this trend continues and if the way we control germs isn't improved, infections that were once considered minor may become fatal. The time for change is now & Benefect is the sensible alternative.
