Here are the top 5 key Biomaster FAQ’s to help with any unanswered questions:

How does Biomaster work? Biomaster binds to the cell wall disrupting growth. The Biomaster ions interfere with enzyme production stopping the cell producing energy. Biomaster interrupts the cell’s DNA preventing replication.

 How effective is Biomaster? Very. Biomaster is proven to inhibit the growth of microbes by up to 99.99%. These include bacteria, fungi and moulds. It’s also been proven to be effective against antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE).

 How long is Biomaster effective for? Biomaster is effective for the intended lifetime of the product to which it is added. It is built-in and doesn’t wear off or leach out. Nor can you see, smell or taste Biomaster. 

Is it safe? Yes. Not only has it been repeatedly tested to ISO standards but it is based on silver ion technology, recognised for centuries with no harmful effects. Biomaster is used in medical, food and water applications. We don’t use nanotechnology due to ongoing safety concerns.

How do I know if a product is Biomaster protected? Unless it carries the Biomaster symbol, you don’t know if it is protected. Ask before you buy it.
