Kolkata: ITC’s Nimyle, a 100% natural action floor cleaner with Neem, claims to protect from COVID-19 type coronavirus. The claim is based on a lab study on a surrogate coronavirus strain from the same family as COVID-19. ITC’s Nimyle is also the first Indian floor cleaner brand to get this global validation.
In a step to authenticate further, Nimyle Herbal Floor Cleaner was sent to an internationally accredited laboratory. The international laboratory is ISO 17025 accredited by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) which certifies that the laboratory uses test methods based on stringent international standards.
A team of experienced microbiologists, in a series of rigorous tests, have scientifically proven that Nimyle Herbal Floor Cleaner protects against COVID-19 type coronavirus. At 99.9%, the test has validated Nimyle’s strong protection claims against COVID-19 type coronavirus.
