Eisai has unveiled Etak antimicrobial wet pipes which contains long-acting antimicrobial agent Etak, countrywide. Etak, developed at Hiroshima University, has an adhesive component which chemically binds the antimicrobial component to the area wiped with Etak antimicrobial wet wipes. This gives the area wiped an antimicrobial effect that lasts for one week.

Etak, the main ingredient of the product, is a long-acting antimicrobial agent developed by Professor Hiroki Nikawa of the Department of Oral Biology and Engineering at Hiroshima University's Graduate School of Biomedical and Health Sciences.

An adhesive component of Etak chemically binds the antimicrobial component to the area wiped with Etak Antimicrobial Wet Wipes, preserving an antimicrobial effect that lasts for one week.

Eliminating virus and bacteria is important for consumers, especially mothers with small children. There have been many requests from mothers with small children such as “I want to use Etak product not only inside the house but also the outside” and “I want to use Etak product conveniently to the difficult to spray area,” according to the company. In response to these requests, Etak antimicrobial wet wipes have been commercialised.

Etak antimicrobial wet wipes are alcohol-free, therefore suitable for families with small children, and can be used for elimination of viruses and bacteria on personal belongings as well as for cleaning hands and fingertips. Wiping with this product is expected to give antimicrobial barrier for personal belongings. The effect remains even if the area is wiped with water.

Eisai also produces Etak antimicrobial spray, a spray for mouth masks, which eliminates viruses and bacteria for 24 hours and Etak antimicrobial spray α which can be used for a variety of lifestyle supplies including fabrics such as clothes and stuffed toys as well as kitchenware. (SV)
