Citrox® - The Evolution of Natural, enviro-friendly and organic cleaning, sanitation, healthcare and agricultural products.

Citrox technology incorporates a truly holistic approach designed to increase the efficiency of cleaning and sanitising operations and addresses the growing demands for replacing synthetically based products for a wide range of applications including: farming, animal health, produce decontamination, water treatment, human medical and personal care. In accordance with the demands of ISO and HACCP systems, Citrox aims are focused on zero negative impact on human health and for compliance with organic farming regulations.

The core biotechnology of Citrox is the use of complex compounds which have been developed by a team of scientists. The key ingredients are flavonoids that are extracted through a specialised process from citrus fruits. The extracted flavonoids are combined with a number of natural acids (from fruit and vegetable origins) to produce the core active substances which have a proven broad spectrum efficacy against harmful micro-organisms, fungi, moulds and yeast. With today's surmounting sanitation and healthcare needs, Citrox and its unique efficacy and low impact is positioned as a significant revolution to wide-ranging aplications and industries.

Citrox - Agriculture: Pesticide, Herbicide and Fungicide Alternative

Products: ProAlexin™ . The Natural Alternative.

Citrox - ProAlexin™ products aim to assist agricultural producers to achieve gains without the use of toxic chemicals. They are designed to activate, and enhance synergistically, the plants production of phytoalexins thus countering the risk of damage from plant-attacking pathogens.
This reduces the stress on the plant and promotes plant vigour, resulting in a healthier plant giving better yields through improved nutrition. The benefits, as observed during field trials, are a reduction in the number of fertilizers and insecticides required, higher yields and higher grade quality produce.

Application Fields - ProAlexin™:

Stone fruits: apricots, plums, nectarines, apples and pears, etc.
Citrus fruits: lemons, oranges, grapefruits, etc.
Berries: strawberries, blueberries, etc.
Exotic fruits: pineapples, mangos, passion fruits, coconuts, banana and plantain, guava, etc.

Citrox - Surface Hygiene and Industrial Cleaning

Products: ProSino™ Cleaners and Sanitizers

Replacing synthetically based products for use in cleaning and sanitising operations:
The Citrox hygiene range includes novel products that address the growing demands for replacing synthetically based productsfor use in cleaning operations.Examples of this include the replacement of chlorine and quaternary compound based cleaners with health & safety eco-friendly products.Citrox technology incorporates a truly holistic approach designed to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of cleaning operations.This includes a wide range of formulations, some of which are totally non-toxic, hypoallergenic and even carry organic status.The various formulations are effective over a wide range of pathogens, including gram positive and gram negative bacteria, viruses, moulds, yeasts and fungi.

Chlorine and caustic soda health problems:
For many years chlorine and caustic soda have been the standard, cheap chemicals used to decontaminate foodstuffs, and to reduce the risk of infections. It is now known and generally acknowledged, that this is a health hazard, and a proven cause of severe health problems.
The use of chlorine has already been banned in organic foods, and this ban will extend to all foodstuffs in due course. Further it is inevitable that caustic soda will be subject to similar pressure. Without exception, chlorine and all currently available synthetic disinfectants are unsuitable for use in the disinfection of food during preparation, and in food preparation areas because of high toxicity levels. By comparison, Citrox products for factory cleaning and disinfection have low toxicity, and are non-corrosive. Citrox sanitisers comply with the EU organic Regulations 2092/91.

Main applications:
ProSino™ Cleaners can be used safely in food processing facilities, farms, hotels and restaurants, offices, schools and canteens on floors, walls, ceilings, bench tops and cutting boards, tools, utensils and automated equipment, cars and transport vehicles, shipping containers, tray and bottle washing, cool rooms, dump tanks, waste bins, fabrics, drapes, kitchen, bathrooms, toilets.
