TerpeneTech believes that the future of Biocides lies in the development and commercialization of effective natural based products. Plant based products represent the new frontier as plants use Terpenes in their natural defense and Terpenes have demonstrated excellent repellent, insecticidal and anti-microbial properties. As many insecticidal actives and synergists have been found to be potentially harmful to humans, pets and the environment they have been removed from the market, professionals and consumers have fewer tools at their disposal to fight insect vector borne diseases. With potentially dangerous insects and diseases moving further northward from Africa there is an urgency to develop effective and safe products to protect populations.
TerpeneTech’s non-toxic, environmentally friendly formulations are based on Encapsulated Terpenes, Natural Actives and Natural Inert Ingredients to create natural products with unique attractive selling points:
- SAFE- Ingredients are GeneraIly Regarded as Safe (GRAS)
- COMPETITIVE AND COST EFFECTIVE- Competitively priced for Consumers, Farmers and Industry,
- NON-TOXIC & ENVIRONMENTALLY ACCEPTABLE- Safe alternative to potentially dangerous Industrial chemicals
- LOW RISK OF RESISTANCE BUILDUP WITH TERPENES-Multiple Site mode of action
- MEET EFFICACY REQUIREMENTS- product performance meets or exceeds expectations
Terpenes have a well known drawback in that they are volatile and evaporate quickly thereby having short term residual activity. By utilizing Eden Research’s patened Yeast Particle Microencapsulation Technology the problems associated with Terpenes can be overcome and effective, non-toxic Biocides can be developed and brought to market.
In addition to Terpenes, TerpeneTech has also developed technology and product formulations based on other natural actives and inert ingredients. The new formulations have demonstrated excellent efficacy in products for humans, pets, horses, poultry and cattle.
The TerpeneTech Strategy is to develop, test and commercialize world-class effective natural Biocide products and bring them to market working with leading companies worldwide
