Virucidal activity against all enveloped viruses

The coronavirus pandemic has brought attention to hygiene and disinfection.
The virucidal activity of L(+)-lactic acid against enveloped viruses, including the corona virus, was investigated with the European standard test method EN 14476.

With these results we can claim Junbunzlauer L(+)-lactic acid to have «virucidal activity against enveloped viruses”.
