How It Works

As NatShield™ comes into contact with the virus cells, it breaks the protein coat of the cells. Without the protein coat, the virus cells clump together killing them almost instantly without toxic residue.

The Path-Away® Advantage

Path-Away® is an all-natural plant-based active ingredient processed using a classified proprietary formula and listed in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP 51) as an effective disinfectant.

The basic product formulation is directed at the control and/or elimination of a broad spectrum of fungi, bacteria, yeasts and viruses in buildings.

Due to its ground-breaking technology, the product has been used across a wide spectrum of market segments for a wide variety of uses including increasing crop yield, helping raise bigger and more healthy poultry, decontaminating nearly every mode of private and public transportation and even protecting textiles.

The formulation of Path-Away®, known as the Path-Away Anti-Pathogenic Aerosol Solution® has proven to be highly effective against most common as well as unusual pathogens including H1N1, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, MRSA, Clostridium difficile and more.

As such, no animals were used during any part of the Path-Away® research and development process, and the proprietary active ingredient is certified organic and non-genetically modified (i.e. Certified Organic Input and Certified Non-GMO).

Testing and use against COVID-19 (SARS-CoV2)

NatShield™, with the Path-Away® active ingredient, is a lab tested, certified organic disinfectant proven to kill many different types of pathogens including fungi, bacteria, yeast and viruses, while most importantly killing 99.99% of the SAR-CoV-2 (COVID-19) surrogate within one minute.

  • Spray the air or on hard surfaces/objects
  • Spray it on your hands or on any skin surfaces (except eyelids) for long lasting protection
  • Deploy in aerosolized form for commercial use with other tools such as autonomous disinfecting robots and ultrasonic fogging systems.

about the developer of Path-Away®

Dr. Arthur V. Martin

Path-Away® was developed in the USA by Dr. Arthur V. Martin, an Environmental and Mechanical engineer, and President and Principal Research Scientist of Global Infection Control Consultants LLC.

One of Dr Martin’s key goals was that Path-Away® products would not only be effective, but safe enough for his own children and grandchildren, and would also take environmental stewardship into account.

Dr. Martin has personally conducted more than 4,000 assessments in his career for chemical biological, bacterial and viral contamination. He pioneered the concept of “Prophylactic Air Management for Pathogen Control” and has an extensive list of publications and peer reviewed awards.

Dr. Martin lectures worldwide on the subjects of Pathogen Control and Indoor Air Quality.

Commercial Applications of NatShield™

In addition to consumer use as a hand sanitizer, NatShield™ is extremely effective as a general disinfectant and can be deployed in aerosolized form using disinfecting tools such as autonomous disinfecting robots and ultrasonic fogging systems.

It can also be applied across a wide range of industries for safe and effective sanitization.
