The science behind Toucan Eco is called electrochemical activation
It’s all about breaking up and making up
Toucan Eco lets you make your own multipurpose disinfectant cleaner from just water, salt and electricity that kills up to 99.999% of microorganisms.
It’s eco-friendly, effective and safe, and replaces most chemical cleaners and the single use plastic bottles they are supplied in.
How it works
Proven performance to disinfect
Science based on the immune system
When the body comes under attack from invading bacteria and viruses, the immune system responds by sending white blood cells called neutrophils straight to the infection.
Once activated, these cells produce the same hypochlorous acid (HOCl), which is amongst the most potent and naturally occurring disinfectants.
Along with the solution’s low concentration and gentle pH, that’s why it’s non-toxic and non-allergenic, without any skin irritation or breathing difficulties.
The history behind the technology
It’s based on a science that’s been around since 1834.
That’s when Michael Faraday published his findings on the principles of electrolysis observing that an electric current passed through a substance produced chemical changes.
Cut to the 1970’s and a Russian scientist called Professor Vitold Bakhir added salt to this process to create a brand-new solution, one that was found to have powerful disinfectant properties.
This was to develop a solution to combat the effects of biological warfare quickly and easily for use on people, animals, equipment, crops and water supplies.
With developments in technology, smaller devices can now make the solution on demand and onsite.
