Numbers matter. Why a 99.999% kill rate makes a big difference to your health and hygiene.

Numbers matter. Why a 99.999% kill rate makes a big difference to your health and hygiene.

A 99.9% vs 99.999% kill rate makes a big difference to your health and hygiene standards.

Really? Surely both do the job just fine?

Well, not exactly… We’ve all seen the numbers everywhere and by now the bold ‘kills 99.9% of germs’ statement seems to pop up on every bottle of cleaner and hand sanitiser we buy. But hang on… what about that extra couple of 9’s on the end there. Do they really matter? Well YES they DO. In a huge way!

If you read down to the small print and the list of ingredients on any given bottle, you might be surprised to find they don’t offer protection from such a broad range of pathogens as you might expect. However, with 99.999% proven efficacy against a broad range of pathogens, Kokoso Protect disinfectant and hand sanitiser solutions have been scientifically proven to be considerably more effective than any product offering 99.9% efficacy.

But what does 99.999% efficacy mean?

The numerical percentage refers to the number of pathogens the disinfectant is effective at killing. The number is important as it directly links to lowering the transmission of infection from one person to another. The following table shows just how effective these basic hand sanitisation products and methods are in terms of their kill rate:

Product Example

Kill Rate

No product

0%

Normal Soap

90%

Normal Antibacterial Soap

99%

Special Antibacterial Soap

99.9%

Special Antibacterial Soap and Hand Sanitisers

99.99%

Kokoso Protect Foaming Hand Sanitiser

99.999%

 

To put it another way, Kokoso Protect products are proven by independent scientific analysis to be:

  • 10 times more effective than using a specialist antibacterial soap and hand sanitiser.
  • 100 times more effective than using a specialist antibacterial soap alone.
  • 1000 times more effective than using normal antibacterial soap.
  • And 10,000 times more effective than just using normal soap.

The extra ‘9’s really are that important in reducing infection transmission.
