Xeralife’s active ingredients are certified as food grade, and will not harm the environment. Contrary to chemical based germicides which impact an organic contaminant’s DNA structure, Xeralife solution attacks the germ’s cell walls. As such, viruses and bacteria are not able to build-up resistance. Also, once decomposition is complete, only carbon dioxide and water are released into the environment.
