X-Clean has been providing high quality agricultural chemicals to the New Zealand market for 20 years. During 2019 when Bovis was the headline virus the X-Clean team found themselves needing to disinfect their hands, feet, and sides of vehicle, before every farm driveway they went down. We didn’t think it was the best idea to have a separate product for each of these locations, so we developed a single product that would disinfect all three. We wanted something that would be soft on our skin, but hard on the virus.
Due to its non sting nature the product was a big hit with X-Clean staff and was then sold to others in a similar situation.
When COVID-19 reared its ugly head we were soon asked if we had anything effective against that. As the medical literature emerged showing two of our active ingredients were active against COVID we stepped up product ensuring we had hundreds of thousand litres on hand ready to protect New Zealand.
