SALVECO laboratory plant-based chemistry pioneer

Plant-based disinfection

More than ever, it is imperative to protect ourselves from germs and microbes. But why do so at the expense of our health, risking harmful effects? Discover the SALVECO disinfection range: 100% plant-based biocidal products without compromise. A real revolution.

100% plant-based

Our disinfectant solutions are made exclusively from plants and are agro-sourced products. They contain no alcohol, no quaternary ammonium, no bleach, no endocrine disruptor, and no toxic VOCs.

100% biodegradable

according to OECD 301 guidelines
SALVECO products biodegrade completely in less than 28 days (according to OECD 301 guidelines), over the entire formula, releasing carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H20).


clinical trials
Our formulas are non-irritating and can be used without PPE. They have been validated in clinical and pediatric tests on fragile populations.

Without risk phrase

free of CLP symbol
According to the European CLP classification, which alerts users on the dangers of products (toxicity, corrosiveness, irritant effect, etc.), SALVECO's disinfectant solutions do not carry any hazardous pictograms.

Patented effibioz formula

Exclusive and patented products allowing you a serene and differentiating marketing.

Our disinfectants, the first biocides under simplified MA in Europe

SALVECO biocides are the first to have received a Simplified Marketing Authorisation (SMA) in Europe. This is possible thanks to our know-how in plant-based chemistry, the absence of compounds of concern, not classified, while meeting the standards of disinfectant effectiveness. Our unique and patented technology meets the requirements of the simplified procedure in accordance with Article 25 of the Biocidal Products Regulation n°528/2012. The regulatory framework of the SMA of disinfectant products (biocides) has become stricter (BPR).

In order to ensure a minimum level of protection for humans, animals and the environment, the regulatory framework of the SMA of disinfectant products (biocides) has become stricter (BPR). Today, by using only renewable and safe resources, SALVECO offers a real alternative. It is recognized by its users and now by the European Commission, as being as effective as traditional chemicals, while offering multiple advantages and benefits thanks to a 100% biodegradable formulation (according to OECD 301 guidelines).

SALVECO is also the first holder of a European MA for its range of lactic acid based biocidal products. An opportunity that SALVECO wishes to share with its partners. Develop your own range of biocides in Europe with our formula and obtain your marketing authorization.

In less than 6 months, launch your own range of plant-based cleaners and detergents that are more respectful of the environment and users (alcohol-free, quaternary ammonium-free, bleach-free, endocrine disruptors-free, toxic VOC-free).

Why switch to plant-based chemistry?

Plant-based chemistry, an alternative to petrochemicals

The disinfection market, valued at more than 8 billion euros in the world, is dominated by large groups whose products, derived from petroleum chemistry such as quaternary ammonium derivatives or bleach, are indeed effective but above all extremely harmful to humans and the environment.

These products play a major role in many chronic diseases and issues such as:

  • dermatitis, sensitivity, allergies,
  • the development of asthma,
  • the high water pollution.

Some are even known to be endocrine disruptors and CMR (carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic).

More than a patent: effibioz, a unique technology!

The SALVECO laboratory created the effibioz patent after 20 years of research. It comes from Dr. Stephan Auberger’s awareness of the urgent need to create cleaning, disinfecting and hygiene products of plant origin with proven effectiveness. Its key element? Natural mineral acids, including lactic acid, 100% agro-sourced and 100% biodegradable substances (according to OECD 301 guidelines) with broad-spectrum efficacy against bacteria and various viruses.
