Nature's Disinfectant - Thymol

Thymol is found in thyme oil (oil derived from thyme, an herb with antimicrobial properties). Ancient Egyptians used it for embalming, Europeans used it to soothe blistered skin during the Black Death, and Blackfoot Native Americans used it to treat mouth and throat infections. When used properly as the active ingredient in a reputable household cleaner, thymol can kill 99.99% of household germs.

Used as an active ingredient in Gentle Organics products, Thymol is an EPA-approved with effective properties of antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-mold agent. The EPA classifies Thymol as G.R.A.S (Generally Recognised as Safe) which is to have a low toxicity rating and it is not aware of any adverse effects to humans or the environment when used as directed on the packaging label.
