About CLEANSEPT Imagine your world, healthy, clean and germ-free. That dream is our reality. Many Germs. One Solution.

CLEANSEPT AG manufactures a full line of disinfectants for the decontamination and cleaning of almost any surface or object, faster and safer than ever.

CLEANSEPT AG is a spin-off Oro Clean Chemie AG, a well-established disinfectant manufacturer based in Switzerland with over 45 years of experience in developing and manufacturing disinfectants. Many years ago, Oro Clean Chemie AG, the parent company of CLEANSEPT AG, was heavily engaged in private label manufacturing. The company manufactured disinfectants for many big brands such as Henry Schein, Zhermack or Metasys, just to name a few. The CLEANSEPT brand was originally owned by Dental Liga, a buying group of 13 dental supply companies from Germany but after their break-up, Oro Clean Chemie AG acquired the CLEANSEPT brand. CLEANSEPT was subsequently rebranded and relaunched into the market.


One of the most common hazards in a dental clinic occurs when patient saliva, blood and other infectious body fluids become airborne and spattered. The microbe rich spray causes infections and diseases that can be transmitted to workers and other patients.

The most common problematic infections in dental settings are tuberculosis, hepatitis, AIDS, pneumonia and the common cold. The dental team is duty-bound to make certain that infection control practices are followed regularly.

The mouth is a hotbed of microbes being rich with saliva and blood, which are known carriers of infection. Many carriers of latent infections have no idea of their condition hence utilizing the same infection control practices for all patients are critical to their wellbeing.


Nosocomial infections, also known as HAIs (Hospital Acquired Infections or Hospital Associated Infections) are a major concern for the healthcare industry. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly 1.7 million hospital associated infections cause 99,000 deaths each year in the United States alone. The overall direct medical costs for HAI to U.S. hospitals range between 28,4 billion to 33,8 billion USD.

The above figures illustrate the importance of thorough disinfection, cleaning and sterilization procedures. Comprehensive infection control measures would not only significantly reduce the number of infections and casualties per year but relief some of the pressure of rising healthcare costs.

As a manufacturer of disinfectants, OCC Switzerland offers a complete range of disinfectants and cleaning products for healthcare facilities.


Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) can have devastating effects on the health of veterinary patients, as well as the emotional and financial well-being of their owners. Outbreaks of HAIs can have a significant impact on patients, their owners and veterinary personnel.

Additionally, the close contact between most people and their pets allows for transmission of infectious agents between humans and animals, in both directions, and many of the most important HAIs in human hospitals are now emerging in veterinary hospitals.

Veterinary clinics can act as reservoirs of human and animal pathogens and play a role in dissemination of infectious agents including antimicrobial-resistant bacteria into the general population, with potential effects on humans and animals.

Veterinary personnel also face an inherent risk of zoonotic disease from contact with both healthy and ill animals. All these issues clearly indicate why infection control is an important aspect of veterinary practice.


As access to medical facilities and medicine improves, the live expectancy increases. Both of these factors amongst others contribute to an increasing number of elderly who need specialist attention in nursing homes, long-term care facilities and daycare centers.

Unfortunately, infections are still a significant source of mortality for residents of nursing homes and care facilities. In fact, numerous studies showed that up to 50% of hospital admissions of nursing home residents are due to an infection.

Nursing homes and long-term care facilities, including rehabilitation facilities, hospice care and day-care, are predisposed to exposure from a variety of environmentally transmitted diseases. In these types of environments, Staphylococcal infections (including MRSA) and other diseases are relatively easy to transmit not only from residents to residents, but also from residents to staff and from residents to visitors and visa-versa.

An effective facility-wide infection control and prevention program helps to reduce the number of infections in care facilities, contain rising costs of hospitalizations and ultimately safe live.

Beauty and Wellness

In chiropody practices, nail design studios, cosmetic and hairdressing salons, piercing and tattoo parlors the requirements of hygiene legislation must be strictly followed.

These facilities make close, direct contact with large numbers of people that may unknowingly carry diseases such as MRSA or herpes.

Cleansept supports beauty professionals in their daily fight against the spread of infections by offering a comprehensive product range of high quality disinfectants and cleaning products.
