P&G seeks startups for Novel Antimicrobial Solutions

Deadline: November 6, 2020

P&G is looking for novel antimicrobial actives and/or full formulations that deliver improved efficacy and lower toxicity than traditional biocides for use on home surfaces (kitchens, bathrooms, soft surfaces, air)

If you would like to submit a solution, please reach out to them with the requested information, AND submit here and we'll try to to help you get status on your application.

What we are looking for:

  • Antimicrobial actives that can be formulated in liquid or solid forms, in the presence of anionic, cationic or nonionic surfactants, and pH range from 2 to 11.
  • Antimicrobial actives/Formulations that provide bactericidal efficacy against representative gram positive / negative bacteria and enveloped/non-enveloped viruses on relevant ASTM/EN methods while delivering at least one or more of the following benefits:
    • For surfaces: fast active, with contact times of 20s to 2min for log 6 efficacy
    • For air: 3-4 log reduction in less than 1 hour
    • Provides Residual Antimicrobial, delivering against the EPA 01-1A or PAS2424 methods o Low toxicity, without requiring Human Hazard Precautionary statements in label
    • Enables usage on Food Contact Surfaces without the need of a potable water rinse
    • Biocide of Natural origin
    • Requiring less than 0.2% when formulated in a surfactant containing chassis
    • Do not induce Cleaning/Shine negatives vs the formulation without biocide
    • Antimicrobial actives should be biodegradable

Product Forms can include: Liquid or solid formulations that can be incorporated across a range of delivery systems (trigger sprays, pourable liquids, aerosols, wipes), devices that distribute and/or generate in-situ the required biocide to provide antimicrobial efficacy

What we are not interested in:

  • Products/Devices that don’t have a consumable
  • Me-too products with no meaningful advantage vs. what is on market today
  • Products without path for EPA/BPR registration

To Apply:

  • Please direct your response to: Ramon Campos, campos.rn@pg.com
  • Include with your response: Company Name and individual to contact, contact information, who referred you (person and organization/company), and non-confidential information on your solution.
