Livinguard, a Swiss leader in sustainable self-disinfecting hygiene technology, has announced that the tests carried out by IRSHA institute showed that the inner and outer layers of masks supercharged with Livinguard technology have an average >99 per cent effectiveness with no recovery of viable viruses against the Delta variant of SARS COV-2.

These results come as positive news as communities continue battling the Delta variant outbreak, and who will be able to rely on Livinguard capabilities for their population’s health and safety. It is expected that children, who have been particularly exposed to the Delta variant, will benefit the most from this breakthrough. The confirmation of Livinguard technology’s efficacy against the Delta variant also comes in context of an expected rebound of COVID cases during the winter season, the company said in a press release.

Livinguard also announced today that the effectiveness of its technology could be applied to different substrates. Such capabilities come as a unique opportunity for the many industries, such as airlines, apparel companies, hospitality, healthcare, logistics or transportation. The technology offers an opportunity to help these industries to responsibly open their services with an additional layer of protection for their customers and workforce.

The data announced today add to the extensive body of evidence from researchers at the Free University Berlin and the University of Arizona proving that Livinguard technology can continuously destroy 99.9 per cent of pathogens (microbes) such as viruses and bacteria, including influenza, Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, tuberculosis and E. Coli bacteria, staphylococci and salmonellae, according to Livinguard.

“The news of our technology’s effectiveness against Delta is another evidence that Livinguard technology is future-proof and will emerge from the COVID pandemic as the hygiene technology of choice for sustainable self-disinfection moving forward. As consumers continue to resort to masks for specific situations, we expect Livinguard masks to become consumers’ preferred, sustainable, self-disinfecting facemask,” Sanjeev Swamy, Livinguard CEO said.
