CoviGo Effervescent Sanitizer Tablet
CoviGo is a unique, single dose effervescent tablet, which dissolves quickly and provides a consistently accurate strength sanitizer solution every time, eliminating concentration errors in mixing, making the product safe and easy to use.
When dissolved in water, the active ingredient in the CoviGo tablet produces free available chlorine in the form of Hypochlorous Acid, which has been shown to be 80 to 100 times more effective against viruses than chlorine bleach, and it is completely natural and safe.
Extremely affordable at just R4 per litre. Each tube contains 10 tablets, each tablet makes 12,5 litres of sanitiser. That is 125 litres per tube.
What is CoviGo?
CoviGo Unique Selling Points
Provides the strongest and most potent form of free available chlorine, Hypochlorous Acid.
Stable solution that can be stored up to 30 days in a sealed container once diluted.
HOCl is a naturally occurring chemical produced by the body's own white blood cells, to fight bacteria and infections.
Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) does not carry the same corrosive elements as bleach thus making it less harmful and more surface friendly.
HOCI is just as effective at sanitizing as other readily available products without the high concentrations of toxic chemicals
HOCl kills a wide variety of bacteria, fungus and viruses like:
Comes in an easy to use, ready for dilution, effervescent tablet which produces 12.5 litres of sanitizer.
No direct exposure to harmful noxious gases or odours associated with liquid concentrate products.
Reduced wastage with tablet form as compared to liquid concentrates. Smaller tablets make for easier delivery/transport or shipping.
Low cost with high efficacy.
24 months shelf life if kept dry and packaging directions are followed.
CoviGo is Eco-friendly, Halaal, Bio-degradable and Non-toxic
Unique Safety Benefits of CoviGo
Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) holds the highest US FDA safety classification available.
GRAS (Generally Recognised As Safe) classification is only given to a product if it is safe to inhale, ingest and apply to the skin. Having achieved this classification, Hypochlorous Acid is considered totally safe and non-toxic for human use.
HOCl has been extensively researched for many years, and multiple peer-reviewed medical publications refer to its efficacy and safety when used outside of the human body
“Based on more than 100 years of research and field-based implementation,
Hypochlorous Acid has been shown effective in the inactivation of viruses, bacteria, spores, and fungi. It is benign to human physiological systems, breaking down rapidly after use to ordinary salt-water that requires no hazardous material disposal and no personal protective equipment. “
Hypochlorous Acid is an electrically uncharged molecule, making it highly efficient at penetrating the membrane walls of viruses, killing it quickly without damaging healthy cells. In addition to this, HOCl has been described as the form of free available chlorine that has the highest bactericidal activity against a broad range of microorganisms. Furthermore, it has been stated that the antimicrobial activity of chlorine-based disinfectants depends directly on the amount of HOCl present in the water.
When diluted in water, at the recommended dilution ratios, Hypochlorous Acid has a near neutral pH of around 6.3, making it less harmful and corrosive on surfaces, and more importantly it does not damage the skin.
How does CoviGo work?
The active ingredient in CoviGo effervescent tablets, when dissolved in water,
releases free available chlorine in the form of Hypochlorous Acid.
Free available chlorine exists in 2 forms
- Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) as is found in the CoviGo product
- Hypochlorite ion (OCl-) found in the common bleach solutions
Various studies have shown that Hypochlorous Acid has an increased disinfection power than that of hypochlorite ion.
HOCl is very similar to the water molecule, allowing it to easily penetrate through the negatively charged cell wall. Once inside the micro-organism, HOCl destroys the nucleus of the cell, thereby effectively completing the disinfection process.
Sanitizing of all Smooth and Hard Surfaces
These include but are not limited to:
Countertops, Sinks, Tabletops, Taps, Door Handles, Windows, Doors, Steel Beds, School Desks, Office Desks, Reception Counters, Plastic Chairs, Benches, Lockers, Floors, Toilets, Showers

These include but are not limited to:
Clothing, Towels, Hand Towels, soaking of bed linen post washing, Rinsing and sterilization of surface cleaning cloths, Sterilization of dish-washing sponges and cloths, Soaking of Scrub Suits post washing
CoviGo can be used very effectively as a fogging agent, however this product should only be used in cold fogging machines and will not be effective if used through heat generating fogging units. Temperatures more than 40 degrees Celsius, will denature the active molecules of Hypochlorous Acid, rendering the product ineffective.
Take-aways, Canteens, Food Preparation Kitchens, Butcheries and Meat Processing Facilities
CoviGo is highly effective in these environments when used in combination with iSurface Degreaser. iSurface Degreaser is an approved and tested product, which enhances the effect of CoviGo within these environments.
