LIFE’s technology uses both organic and inorganic active ingredients, which act in quite different ways.

Inorganic


LIFE's inorganic technology is incorporated into a product at the time of manufacture. Positively charged ions supplied by the inorganic ingredient concentrate on the surface of the product, giving the product its antimicrobial protection.

When microbes come into contact with a surface containing one of LIFE’s inorganic ingredients; the positively charged ions bind with the microbes and cause their enzymes to break down. The enzymes are then unable to produce energy, which renders the microbes unable to reproduce and they eventually die out.

LIFE's organic technology is similarly incorporated into the product during the time of manufacture.

 

Organic


LIFE’s organic antimicrobials have a disruptive effect on the membrane of the cell. This results in interference with the uptake of nutrients through the membrane and also prevents cell division.
