COVID-19 Is An Enveloped Virus
That Makes It Vulnerable
What does this mean? It means, in our opinion, our plant powered formulated sprays could potentially eliminate COVID-19 at the source of transmission(the air) by destroying the weak outer layer of the virus. With no outer layer the virus essentially dies.
These sprays have not been tested for their effectiveness against COVID19 however, we here at Friggin SpritZen can't help but wonder...what if?

Knowing that COVID-19 is an enveloped virus, as the flu and cold virus is, and many essential oils have shown to destroy the lipids and proteins of viruses I have reason to believe that these sprays can breakdown the outer lipid layer of COVID-19. Thus, affecting it's ability to attach and induce fusion with the cell membranes in your body, therefore ceasing it's ability to replicate and infect the body.
An enveloped virus, which includes influenza and cold viruses, are more sensitive to biocides (aka disinfectants). Their structure has an external lipid bilayer envelope that contains proteins. The infectious part a virus is the viron, envelope + nucleopcasid.
Enveloped viruses are easily destroyed when outside of the body by agents that affect the lipids (what the virus is enveloped in) where as non-enveloped viruses are much more difficult to destroy. The viral envelope (lipid) layer infects the cell membranes in your body by inducing fusion when they come in contact with each other. When the lipid layer is destroyed this affects the virus by either stopping replication or induces leakage causing the virus to die.
Due to this form of the Coronavirus being so new we cannot say with a 100% certainty that our spray can destroy airborne COVID19. However...based on our research done on cold and flu viruses and the similar structure they share, we believe they have great potential to impact the COVID19 virus much in the same way.
Please Note: These sprays, also contain Sodium Lactate, which is a very effective broad spectrum that has an antimicrobial effect against bacteria and various viruses. When combined with the antiviral and antimicrobial properties of the essential oils these sprays can be very effective in fighting various pathogens that are floating about in the air you are breathing in.
