You are here because you want to know about CIO2. Many questions might be in your head.

 Questions like, is it safe? 

Or even, how does it protect me? 

 Look no further, we are here to answer all your questions. 

But first, what is CIO2? 

Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is a chemical compound consisting of one chlorine atom and two oxygen atoms. Used in various processes, including the disinfection of water and other uses. 

 Yes! It is in all forms of water you drink. From the tap to the bottle, it is everywhere. 

 According to studies online, Chlorine dioxide is one of the commonly used oxidizing biocides for microbial control in our water system amongst other chemicals.  

It is widely used across the globe as one of the go-to chemicals to fight against microorganisms that might be harmful to us and may cause us to fall ill. 

So, is it harmful you ask? No.

Other uses of Chlorine Dioxide (CIO2) can be found in most processes that require disinfecting from bacteria and other microorganisms that are harmful to us. Uses like disinfecting swimming pools, local water distribution centres, and even surface cleaners that we use at home will contain some levels of CIO2. 

Most disinfectants, like the shampoos that we use daily, will have a disclaimer warning users , not to ingest or have direct contact with eyes as theyit may contain other chemicals that may be harmful  or cause allergies

With that being said, YES! Chlorine Dioxide CIO2 is safe within the guidelines given by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The guidelines for WHO is 0.1ppm emission for Solid Chlorine Dioxide CIO2. For products like Ecom EA Mask, the emission is 5X lower than the standard guideline, which makes it even safer. 

For our protection, we harness the power of CIO2 to our benefit. By using crystalized  CIO2 in our Ecom Products, we manage to disinfect the air around us. Think of it as a bubble or a forcefield around us, protecting ourselves against the harmful bacteria and microorganisms in the air we breathe. 

 Especially in this period, all the more we have to protect ourselves from the viruses that may harm us

 So YES! CIO2 does protect us and with this, it is definitely to our benefit.
