All Cannon Hygiene FHUs contain Activap™, a unique patented vapour based germicide which has been proven to kill 99.999% of harmful germs. Anything less than this level of control means users are potentially exposed to infection.
A single gram of waste can contain around 1 billion bacteria and contact with just a tiny quantity of untreated waste can lead to skin or gastro-intestinal infection. Micro-organisms such as Staph Aureus, E Coli, Salmonella and Candida can be present.
Whilst it is lethal on germs it is kind to the environment because it is created from plants. It is recognised as safe for human contact and contains materials which readily degrade in the environment causing no long-term harm to land or marine life.
Next time you see a Feminine Hygiene Unit look for the Activap™ logo. It means that minimising cross contamination is a priority.
