Antimicrobial pesticides are substances that disinfect, sanitize or otherwise mitigate the growth of microorganisms, or protect inanimate objects, industrial processes, surfaces, water or other chemical substances from contamination or deterioration caused by germs and bacteria.
Every day, products containing antimicrobial ingredients help keep our homes, offices and bodies clean and hygienic. By knocking out disease-causing bacteria, antimicrobial chemicals help keep people from getting sick.
A variety of different chemical ingredients safely and effectively address these microbes. These ingredients, found in soaps, hand sanitizers and toothpaste, are thoroughly tested to determine their safety for humans, animals and the environment.
