Featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and the Today show as well as in the pages of InStyle magazine and O, The Oprah Magazine, Violight's dental-hygiene products harness UV light to eliminate up to 99.9% of germs. Thanks to original product testing by Dr. Philip Tierno, Jr.— Director of Clinical Microbiology and Immunology for the Departments of Microbiology and Pathology at New York University's Langone Medical Center—and ongoing laboratory tests, Violight products can confidently claim to kill bacteria such as strep, salmonella, E. coli, staph, and H1N1 using the same technology employed by hospitals and Dr. No's dentist. Winner of a 2005 Industrial Design Excellence Award, the original toothbrush sanitizer brings a modern, minimalist aesthetic to bathroom counters as it cleans up to four brushes simultaneously. Portable, travel-proof designs keep mouths impeccable on business trips or vacations, and parents can coax kids toward oral cleanliness with sanitizers designed to fit almost any toothbrush or electric-toothbrush head and modeled after panda, penguin, and ninja characters.
Extending its germ-killing expertise beyond the bristle, Violight’s cell-phone sanitizer renders harmless the bacteria and ingrained particles deposited into phones’ crevices by breathy cellular chats or voicemails left by the flu. Customers can also order replacement UV bulbs for cleansing devices or replacement heads for Violight’s Slim Sonic toothbrush, which cleans teeth at 22,000 strokes per minute.
