            Safer Disinfecting Ingredients

When it comes to disinfectants that are effective against the virus that causes COVID-19, some active ingredients are safer than others. While EPA does not allow third-party certifications for disinfectants, Green Seal has curated U.S. EPA’s List N: Disinfectants for Coronavirusto help you identify safer ones.



 Green Seal recommends choosing List N disinfectants with the following active ingredients. Unlike other active ingredients commonly found in disinfectants, these ones are not linked to asthma, cancer, endocrine disruption, DNA damage or skin irritation. 

It is also important to look at the safety of the overall disinfectant product, including inactive ingredients. The product safety data sheet (SDS) provides information on whether the overall product is classified as hazardous according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

SAFER ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
hydrogen peroxide**
citric acid
lactic acid
ethyl alcohol
(also called ethanol or just alcohol)
isopropyl alcohol
peroxyacetic acid**
hypochlorous acid
**The combination of hydrogen peroxide and peroxyacetic acid is a designated AOEC asthmagen, so avoid products that contain both.
