Disinfectants - Benefect

The Benefect Story

We at Sensible Life Products are dedicated to being the best in the world at providing people and industry with the safest, sustainable and efficacious cleaning and disinfection products for sensible, healthy living.

The world's need for sensible disinfection products was starkly realized when our first son, Conor, was born with only 10% of his immune system functioning.  My wife and I searched for products to make our home safer for him, without using dangerous chemicals. Unfortunately, we came up with no viable options since, at that time, the only way to kill disease-spreading organisms was with poisonous, synthetic chemicals that could not be safely touched, inhaled or exposed to food surfaces. So we asked my Mother, an aromacologist, if she could formulate an alternative that could kill germs but not be a poison itself. 

We sent the initial formula to a lab for testing and were astounded when the results came back. At this point, we knew we were onto something so we founded Sensible Life Products and after 3 years of testing, learning, re-formulating and re-testing, we received the first government drug approval for Benefect®, the first & only Botanical Disinfectant in North America. It is just as effective at killing bacteria as traditional disinfectants but is less toxic than vinegar!

The reception of Benefect was so overwhelming, we could not have imagined the attention it would receive. Over the years, Benefect has received widespread recognition & awards for proving that disinfectants don't need to be poisonous to be effective. The explosive growth and substantial industry, public & media attention clearly show that Benefect is changing the way the world controls germs...from large-scale contamination site remediation to the home & child care center.  The ramifications are staggering...and Conor certainly is happy we did it.

Thanks for taking the time to learn about Benefect. People need to know there is a sensible alternative.
