Oct 13, 2022YHS Team
For many years, disinfectants made with chlorine bleach or alcohol were the only option for protecting homes or businesses from disease. In recent years, however, new solutions have become available to fight against viruses and bacteria. Zetrisil® is the key ingredient in our My-shield® line of productsMy-shield® is a non-alcohol, non-chlorine bleach broad-spectrum disinfectant that kills bacteria and viruses. There are many benefits of using a non-alcohol and non-chlorine bleach-based disinfectant that continues to kill after application. Let’s check out a few below.

What Is Zetrisil, and why is it a better choice?

Zetrisil® is a unique nano-based antimicrobial technology that is used to kill viruses and bacteria while offering persistent activity that “shields” and helps prevent infections after our solutions have been applied and dried. Our My-shield® products kill germs in many different environments. My-shield® products with Zetrisil® kill germs on contact and continue to protect against infection for hours on hands and for days on surfaces. 

My-shield®'s unique formulation of microfiltration and molecular distillation technologies has been shown to "neutralize" pathogens by disrupting the cell wall, the membrane, and the genetic information. Zetrisil® disables the germs ability to reproduce quickly, reducing the risk of transmission.

Better for surfaces

Unlike chlorine bleach or alcohol-based disinfectants, the non-corrosive properties of My-shield® products do not damage paint, plastics or stainless steel. They also do not leave a film on fabrics or household surfaces. Electronics, such as computers or cell phones, can be disinfected with a quick wipe of My-shield® Broad Spectrum Disinfectant for long-lasting protection, without damaging sensitive components.

Better for your skin

Unlike alcohol-based disinfectants, My-shield® Hand Sanitizer contains aloe vera which moisturizes and does not dry out the hands. The alcohol used in most hand sanitizers only disinfects a limited number of microorganisms. My-shield® contains a fast-acting formula that kills germs on contact, providing long lasting protection. My-shield® Hand Sanitizer products are currently used by professionals in hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities. My-shield® is safe for use with anyone, from children to the elderly because it does not contain a chlorine bleach-based formula or alcohol. 

Better for the environment

The environmental benefits of using My-shield® disinfecting products are also significant. Chlorine bleach-based disinfectants have been found to contribute to ozone depletion. Also, chlorine bleach, when it reaches our waterways, can form dioxins that harm aquatic and other forms of life.

Better for your health

My-shield® disinfecting products are better for your health overall. Providing protection from viruses and bacteria is only one benefit. Chlorine bleach-based products used for surface disinfection can lead to health issues, including eye and respiratory irritation, and have also been linked to causing cancer.


In conclusion, My-shield® disinfecting products are free of harmful chemicals, are an environmentally friendlier option, and are better for your overall health and wellness. Offering long-lasting protection from viruses and bacteria is just one of the many benefits of choosing to use our My-shield® products over any alcohol or chlorine bleach-based sanitizers or disinfectants.
