Vital Shield Nano TiO2 Antibacterial Treatment & Decontamination

VitalShield-spray-bottleBetter Health Technologies Vital Shield product line contains TiO2 to decontaminate surfaces, after the spray is used a micro fiber cloth helps to spread the product over the surface.  Research has shown that Titanium is the eighth most abundant element in the earths crust and consequently spontaneously enters the food chain to some degree.  Also, TiO2 is approved for use as a colorant in food, drugs, and cosmetics.  A national cancer institute bio-assay concluded that titanium dioxide did not affect mortality and was not carcinogenic in rats and mice. The EPA’s determination of safety for the US population including infants and children that based on its low toxicity there is reasonable certainty that no harm will result from aggregate exposure to residues of titanium dioxide, includes all anticipated dietary and all other exposures. There are no international maximum residue limit levels established for titanium dioxide, used as a inert ingredient. (Protectant) in micro encapsulated formulations.

* Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) is nano photo catalyst oxidizer in a thin film form, that when exposed to UV light sources even fluorescent style lights creates hydroxyl radicals and oxides with the input of moisture vapor, the ions release hydrogen peroxide as a disinfectant, VOC absorber, odor controller and pathogen destroyer.
