Often, we think of pollution as being an outdoor air issue. However, the air in your home or office can also be polluted by pollen, mold, and VOCs, among other culprits. Because indoor air quality can be a problem, Betterair spent nine years researching and developing their proprietary blend of probiotics specifically for indoor use. The use of probiotics to clean, not only the air, but the surfaces in your home is innovative, and we are excited to have certified Betterair’s environmental probiotic formula, Environmental Probiotics as MADE SAFE.
MADE SAFE: Why is it important to have third-party validation for your products?
Betterair: Betterair is a revolutionary new technology intended to reset the indoor ecology by eliminating allergens from the environment utilizing the power of nature, which for us means probiotics. The MADE SAFE certification on our environmental probiotic formula, Environmental Probiotics, means it has been determined to be free of ingredients known or suspected to harm humans, animals and the environment.
MADE SAFE: Why are your products different from other, more conventional, products in the space?
Betterair: Traditional air purifiers filter the air that passes through them and do not address the source of indoor air pollution – surfaces and objects – as Betterair does. Betterair purifies the indoor environment of allergens and aims to reduce the transmission of infectious diseases using the power of probiotics. There is no other product in the marketplace that does what Betterair does.
MADE SAFE: What do you wish shoppers understood about the kind of products you make?
Betterair: Betterair treats air pollution at its source, on surfaces and objects. Pathogens are not born in the air, rather they grow and multiply on surfaces and objects and then are propelled into the air, where they are then available to be inhaled. Since pathogens are microscopic in size, all that is required to launch them into the air is the wave of a hand across a tabletop or the fall of a foot upon a floor or carpet.
MADE SAFE: Why are you concerned about toxic chemicals in our daily lives?
Betterair: As science progresses, we are learning that the amount of toxic chemical exposure the human body can safely tolerate without negative effects must be reexamined, and our chemical burden often reduced. We need to find natural, nontoxic solutions that embrace nature, rather than fight it.
