Virucidal Activity of L(+)-Lactic Acid Against Enveloped Viruses
Brought to you by Jungbunzlauer

Demand is increasing for efficient, sustainable, and less hazardous active ingredients in surface and skin disinfectants. L(+)-lactic acid is one of a few fully bio-based, proven active substances. It is the ideal ingredient to improve the green profile of cleaning products without compromising on efficacy. While much is already known about the bactericidal properties of L(+)-lactic acid, this paper will demonstrate its effectiveness against enveloped viruses.

Key Objectives:
  • We will present the results of virucidal studies with L(+)-Lactic Acid against enveloped viruses.
  • Discuss Jungbunzlauer’s portfolio of biobased ECOCERT and COSMOS approved raw materials suitable for virucidal formulations.
  • We developed a moisturizing sanitizing formula that demonstrated good efficacy against enveloped viruses.
