Ready to tell coronavirus to Muc-Off? Soon, you’ll be able to do exactly that with Muc-Off’s first product to be made in the U.S. Spurred on by their Anti-Bac Fight Back campaign in the UK and Europe, Muc-Off is now looking to help out stateside with a U.S.-based hand sanitizer.

Based on the World Health Organization (WHO) recommended formula, the sanitizer has an 80% alcohol content. Muc-Off claims that this kills 99.9% of bacteria and “high concentrations of alcohol destroy disease-causing agents and pathogens.” While Muc-Off doesn’t specifically state that their hand sanitizer will kill Covid-19, studies suggest that the two WHO recommended formulas will kill the virus as long as they are used for 30 seconds or more.

As noted, this is the first Muc-Off product to be produced in the U.S., but Muc-Off plans expand this range of products for both the U.S. and Cananda in the near future. Muc-Off will be donating 10% of the profits from the sale of the sanitizer to the WHO Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund, but will also be donating 100,000 antibacterial products globally to key front line workers – having already started in the U.S. with donations in Maine, Minnesota, Nevada, South Carolina, and New York. Check out the full release below.

From Muc-Off

POOLE, UK 05.04.2020, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Over the past 25 years, Muc-Off, the UK based specialist in bike care, have put consumer needs, innovation and agility at the heart of their business. Building on this, is the launch of a new antibacterial hand sanitizer, designed in the UK, but made in the US. “We are stoked to have been able to manufacture our first ever product in the US.

We usually work under high pressure to create products that win bike races. Facing into the headwinds of the pandemic has been tough. With our performance background, we have stepped up a gear to be able to make and launch our new product in a matter of weeks.” – Alex Trimnell, Muc-Off CEO

With significant experience from creating the innovative antibacterial dry body wash and QUAT based antibacterial equipment cleaner, Muc-Off created a new focus to deliver a hand sanitizer that helps tackle germs for people whether they be on the go, at home, education or work.

The high performance hand sanitizer conforms to a World Health Organization (WHO) recommended formula. With its 80% alcohol content, it delivers strong stopping power by killing 99.99% of bacteria and high concentrations of alcohol destroy disease-causing agents and pathogens by breaking apart proteins and disrupting a cell’s metabolism.

With a quick drying high alcohol water thin liquid formulation and portable 4floz precision drop bottle, the Muc-Off Hand Sanitizer is the go to protector for people on the move.

Muc-Off are also committing to supporting the global fight against Covid-19 by donating 10% of profits from the new sanitizer to the WHO Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund which coordinates efforts against the spread of the Coronavirus.

Muc-Off have also committed to donating 100,000 antibacterial products globally to front line key workers. This program has already started in the US with donations being made across Maine, Minnesota, Nevada, South Carolina and New York to medical teams, police and fire departments via Smart Warehousing who have provided logistics support to the Muc-Off team.

This new launch follows the recent introduction of a range of sanitizers & cleaners across Europe. Muc-Off plans to develop the range further for the US and Canada in the near future.

Available throughout the US and Canada from Muc-Off dealers, e-retailers and direct from us.muc-off.com.
