Citrepel and COVID-19

There has been considerable interest in the possible action of PMD against COVID-19 as a result of its effectiveness at killing other coronaviruses, including SARS.

PMD – p-menthane-3,8-diol – is the primary active compound in Citrepel®.

While soap and existing anti-virals also kill the virus, the potential advantage offered by PMD is the duration of its effect. If it is proved to be an effective barrier, PMD could provide a longer period of protection than soap and water.

It has been reported that the Ministry of Defence is currently running tests to explore the use of PMD to protect against COVID-19.

Chemian makes and supplies this active in bulk.
