A sustainable botanical technology: Proprietary formulations with strong antimicrobial and cleaning efficacy.
The THYMOX TECHNOLOGY comes from the heart of our formula: the active
is Thymol. Thymol is a component of thyme oil, basically the same as the plant extract. This plant has long been used by humans for, among other things, as food preservatives.
Thyme oil is listed on the 25B Minimal Risk Pesticide.
Thymol is a GRAS molecule (Generally Recognized As safe) listed as a food additive in many countries
Thymol mode of action: induces instability in microorganisms’ membrane, causing cell content leakage and death.
Surfactants incorporated in our disinfectants are also of botanical origin, and are usually derived from
vegetable oils. These ingredients play key roles in the formulations: they stabilize the solution while
giving its cleaning properties. The cleaning aspect of a green disinfectant is crucial since it allows
mechanical removing of microorganisms from surfaces, thus increasing its efficiency.

THYMOX Technology Certification
UL EcoLogo Certified
Environmental Choice – A private label organic product
THYMOX is the first agricultural disinfectant in Canada to obtain UL EcoLogo certification under UL 2794 (formerly CCD-166):Disinfectants and Disinfectant-Cleaners, the most important, most respected environmental certification symbol in North America and one that is recognized all over the world.
What is UL EcoLogo?
Founded in 1988 by the Canadian government, the UL EcoLogo program provides its customers, public, corporate and consumers, with assurance that the products and services bearing the logo meet the most stringent standards of environmental leadership. UL EcoLogo certifies leading ecological products in more than 70 categories.
The UL EcoLogo program is a Type 1 ecolabel as defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). This means that the UL EcoLogo program compares a product or service with others of the same type, develops rigorous, scientifically relevant certification standards that accurately reflect the entire life cycle of a product and ensures that its compliance with certification standards is verified by an independent third party. The UL EcoLogo program is one of two such programs recognized in North America that have been successfully audited by the Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN) as meeting ISO 14024 standards for ecolabelling.
THYMOX obtained its certification in the category “UL 2794 Certified Disinfectants and Disinfectant-Cleaners” (formerly CCD-166) following a complete audit of the manufacturing process to ensure that the product meets requirements such as:
- Non-irritating to users with diluted application.
- Does not contain phosphates or EDTA, a persistent organic pollutant that is increasingly present in the environment.
- Does not contain coloring or aromas.
- Does not contain halogenated solvents, compounds that contribute to degradation of the ozone layer.
- Does not contain compounds toxic to aquatic life.
- Contains less than 1% volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
- Sold in chlorine-free, recyclable containers.
