Virastan is a sanitizer powered by Protectene®, which is a plant-based formula proven in world renowned laboratories.
Protectene® works by attaching to the virus
and weakening the cell walls. It inhibits its ability to take up amino acids (the basic building block of cells) and forces the virus cells to clump together, in the process killing themselves, almost instantly.
