      Active ingredient benzalkonium chloride 0.1% kills 99.9% of germs. A recent published study by researchers in Hong Kong who studied the effects of disinfectants on SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes covid-19) found benzalkonium chloride and 0.05% chlorhexidine to be effective in killing covid-19. However, Babyganics states that this prioduct is not for covid 19 because it does not contain alcohol.

      Benzalkonium chloride is a non-alcohol-based active ingredient used for clinical, food line, and domestic household chemical agent, that may be applied topically or used as a disinfectant to stop the growth of microorganisms [1]. Studies show the use of antiseptic hand sanitizers decrease the prevalence of the common cold, acute respiratory syndromes, gastroenteritis, and viral influenza. [2,3] . For such preventative measures, there are a variety of hand sanitizers available with alcohol-based and alcohol-free antiseptic agents including ethanol, triclosan and benzalkonium chloride. Recently alcohol-free hand sanitizers with triclosan or benzalkonium chloride have been gaining ground due to concerns that ethanol dries out the skin, is too toxic, and there are frequent cases of intentional ingestion. Additional concerns involve the extensive use of antiseptics risking the selective survival of antiseptic resistant pathogens, which may be simultaneously selecting for antibiotic resistance. This theory of simultaneous or cross-selection suggests that selection of either antiseptic or antibiotic resistance will also select for the other, ultimately resulting in weaker antibacterial therapy and pressure for careful use of both biocides. Despite speculations of evolving resistance mechanisms, BACs are extensively used biocides especially efficacious against enveloped microorganisms.
