OraCare's Main Ingredient, Activated Chlorine Dioxide, Has Been Proven to Eliminate Fungi.
In general, a fungal cell is slightly more complicated than other cell types. This is because their systems that give them energy to live are located deep within the cell, making them more resistant to traditional disinfectants. Activated Chlorine Dioxide as a gas is able to penetrate deeper into the protective barrier surrounding these systems causing them to leak. This disruption in the protective layer makes the cell no longer be able to run the functions to keep them alive and they essentially die. ClO2 is an EPA registered biocide and has been used in different industries for the removal of fungi or mold.
