On 19 November 2016, the UN raised awareness on a very important issue that’s often something of a taboo – toilets and the impact poor sanitation can have on people and economies. In many developing countries, lack of access to clean sanitation leads to the spread of illnesses and, eventually, impacts the economy of a country as a whole and limits development.

This is why microbial control technologies matter. They are the building blocks of a wide range of disinfectants and antimicrobial products. Access to household disinfectants can make a huge difference.
