Effectiveness & Efficiency
Is Pure 100 effective against COVID-19 and Emerging Viral Pathogens?
Pure 100 is on EPA’s List N for COVID disinfection, and approved for emerging viral pathogen claims.
Pure 100 has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to COVID-19 on hard, non-porous surfaces. Therefore Pure 100 can be used against COVID-19 when used in accordance with directions for use against COVID-19 on hard, non-porous surfaces. Refer to the CDC www.cdc.gov for additional information.
What viruses has Pure 100 been tested to be effective against?
Pure 100 has been tested against the following viruses and bacteria, all with a 10 minute contact time for elimination:
- Feline Calicivirus (Norovirus surrogate)
- Hepatitis A Virus
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa
- Salmonella enterica
- Staphylococcus aureus
What makes Pure 100 different from other disinfectants?
While other disinfectants boast a long laundry list of ingredients and side effects, Pure 100 has only TWO ingredients. One of them is water, making up 99.98% of the solution.
The remaining ingredient is Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2). Chlorine Dioxide is not chlorine, nor bleach. Saying that ClO2 has “chlorine” in it is like saying that H2O has “hydrogen” in it. While there is a chlorine atom in the makeup of ClO2, this is not the same as pure Chlorine or Bleach.
Chlorine Dioxide is an oxidizer than breaks down into water, oxygen, and salt. Parents with young kids can feel confident in using a disinfectant at home that is approved by the EPA to eliminate viruses and bacteria, but is gentle in its byproducts compared to other common brands!

Why can't I order Pure 100 if I live in California?
Unfortunately we cannot ship Pure 100 to California at this time - but we hope this will change soon! This is due to ongoing registration process through California's State EPA. Once the CA-EPA has been able to review our application and accept our registration (as the National EPA has), then we'll be able to sell Pure 100 into California.
