From public transport to ride-hailing services, Singapore is a city that sees high levels of car commuting daily. In the COVID-19 era, public transport and automobiles have effectively been commonly known as a “hot-spot” for viruses to congregate.

A trailblazer in the realm of biotechnology, Embiome melds eco-friendly microbiome with automotive air conditioning technology to create “Eco-coating”, an advance air care technology for air conditioning systems in everyday vehicles. With “Eco-coating”, the odorless microorganisms are coated onto the evaporators of air conditioners. This vastly enhances the air purifying function within automobiles and thus providing improved air quality in vehicles affixed with “Eco-coating”, which has also proven to be safe and long-lasting - which keeps passengers safe throughout the ride.

Health Guard Sanitizer: Beyond Clean Hands

During such unprecedented times, the South Korean label has ramped up its innovation and has produced its own series of eco-friendly santisers, H-Biotics, to serve consumers in and about Southeast Asia.

Eliminating over 99.9% of common germs within seconds, H-Biotics Health Guard Sanitizer 150ml is alcohol-free, pet-friendly, non-sticky, and leaves no residue nor odour behind when applied. The product is US FDA registered and is made using hypochlorous acid — an effective disinfectant that is non-toxic to surface contact and non-corrosive.

With its extensive bactericidal and virucidal effects, the H-Biotics Health Guard Sanitizer pivots itself to be an ideal disinfectant for those looking to disinfect, sterilise and deodorise a variety of surfaces, including pet products, the interiors of a vehicle as well as household appliances. When combined with basic social distancing and hygiene practices, such as washing hands with soap and water or wearing masks outdoors, H-Biotics Health Guard Sanitizer can help stem out viral and bacterial transmissions.

In addition to sanitisers, Embiome also proffers a series of 3-layered face masks, the H-Biotics Health Guard Mask, that are comfortable to wear and are well-adjustable. All of the H-Biotics products can be purchased on e-commerce giant, LAZADA.
