FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

What are Probiotics? - STABIOTICS TM LOGO PHOTO

Probiotics are safe and beneficial (“good”) bacteria that have important health benefits for both humans and animals. 


What is StaBiotics™?

Chrisal StaBiotics™  is stabilized probiotics. They are stabilized in a spore form in a concentrated solution and need to be mixed with water to activate.


PIP – Probiotics in Progress

Chrisal PIP is a major break-through, new generation of cleaning products which uses microbiological cleaning with Probiotics rather than conventional cleaning which uses chemicals and disinfectants.

Disinfectants kill both the good bacteria and the bad bacteria, which upsets the natural protective balance of nature – and with the overuse of disinfectants and antibiotics we all have seen a huge increase of resistance among pathogenic (harmful) bacteria.

Using Chrisal PIP to clean with, this introduces a safe, stable and healthy microbial community that lowers the risk of problems with contamination, pathogens and odors.


How does Chrisal PIP products work?

Conventional cleaning methods normally use chemicals that leave a residue in your homes and also they don’t physically remove all the contamination at the microscopic level where dirt and unwanted ‘germs’ hide. Also, most important, conventional cleaners do not penetrate the biofilm layers formed by bacteria to protect themselves and where bacteria thrive. This biofilm needs to be removed for optimal cleaning and to protect your health.

Some of the key innovative aspects of Chrisal’s PIP Products are that PIP’s probiotics act like millions of tiny workers removing the contaminations and dirt at the very microscopic level that you normally can never reach. These contaminations are simply converted to mass and CO2, the same as you breathe out – and these beneficial little workers continue to work for up to days at a time after each cleaning to keep eating away the biofilm put down by pathogens and other harmful (bad) germs.



Another key benefit is that immediately while cleaning the unwanted dirt and contaminations, Chrisal provides a layer of beneficial (good) bacillus to cover all the treated surfaces to continue to both protect you and to keep cleaning long after you wiped the area. These PIP helpful bacteria will occupy the available space, food and water, thereby reducing the risks associated with dirt, mold, odor causing contaminations, pathogenic bacteria and dust mites and their waste. The graphic demonstrates how Chrisal PIP removes the biofilm that protects contaminants and then controls the area treated.


Where can we use PIP?

Wherever cleaning takes place! PIP products are applicable to all places where hygiene is of great importance. Hospitals & Healthcare facilities (hospitals, rest homes, medical clinics…), Residential & Commercial facilities (hospitality and accommodation, schools, offices/workplaces, homes…), Farming & Animal housing (horses, cows, pigs, chickens, goats, sheep…). PIP products are perfectly safe and will strongly improve hygiene to humans and animals.


What are Pathogens?

Pathogens are harmful (“bad”) bacteria that cause illness in people and animals as well as birds and fish. Other harmful bacteria cause odors, spoil food and a number of other unpleasant things as most of us know.


What is BioFilm?

All your life you have been part of an arms race between humans and bacteria. You use chemicals in soaps and disinfectants in your fight, But, even with all of today’s technology, we still find ourselves endlessly battlingbetween trying to protect ourselves and using dangerous chemicals and products that harm us, our children, animals and the environment.


But, the “germs” have a secret weapon – their ability to rapidly form “biofilms” – a protective matrix, a cover, like a housing, in a sense) in which large colonies of microbes are embedded. Biofilms are not just a place to hide dirt, viruses, pathogens and other contaminants, but it is a slimy matrix that is one of the key weapons micro-organisms use to defeat the immune system, antibiotic drugs and other threats.


When bacteria find themselves on a new surface, within a few hours a colony can be created grown significantly very rapidly – and this bacteria colony builds a slimy protective layer, the biofilm, which protects the colony against harmful environmental influences. That biofilm is produced by the bacteria from proteins and multiple sugars and it protects the colony UV light poisonous substances such as disinfectants, cleaners, antibiotics and against dehydration.

This biofilm not only creates a “Home” for the colony also a vital climate. You see biofilm all the time and don’t realize it. When much thicker, you may see it as a stain or darkening on a wall or floor and it is what makes all the grout in your house darker. It is on all surfaces from the railing on your stairs, hiding in the sides of your sink to the insides of your pipes and can lead to outbreaks of diseases.




The Bottom Line About You And Biofilm

The primary source for bacterial or viral disease transmission is by surface to hand or hand to hand contact. Viruses are relatively short-lived organisms not capable of living away from it’s host. When a virus lands on a surface without a host or a support system, it will die within hours. A bacterium landing on the surface will carry a protective coating that will provide a longer life cycle then a virus, but after a while, it will die too. So viruses and bacteria would not pose a big problem if they were not protected by something – so normally you would think that if you don’t touch a surface close to a sick person for at least a couple of hours after they coughed or sneezed, the pathogens will die. If however, the pathogens land on a bio-film, they can stay alive and virulent for a long, long time. So, it becomes clear now that the real threat is the bio-film, not just the pathogens! Therefore, wouldn’t it make sense to get rid of the bio-film rather than continuing warfare against bacteria in which we are still winning battles, but obviously loosing the war? Normal cleaning with a disinfectant will do very little damage to a bio-film or the pathogens living inside of it. Even a strong caustic chlorine can not totally remove it. Only nature holds the key to totally break down a bio-film. Recent research indicates that no cleaner, no disinfectant, no combination of heat and cleaners – NO METHOD SHORT OF HOSPITAL AUTOCLAVING – will totally destroy a Bio Film. Until Now with Chrisal PIP! Surfaces that have been cleaned and colonized the pro-biotic way, with Chrisal’s PIP, will remove the bio-film and establish an environment that will not be hospitable to viral or bacterial colonization – and PIP will do so in the most “GREEN” of environments.


Are PIP products disinfectants?

No, PIP products have no direct biocidal effect on other bacteria; as such they do not promote the building up of resistance among pathogenic bacteria.

Do I keep disinfecting when using PIP products?

No, not for all normal cleaning. In specialized medical circumstances where complete sterilization is still required, then use a disinfectant, but only before using Chrisal PIP, not after. Once you use a disinfectant and the surface is dry, then you can treat the area with PIP.

Are PIP products safe for humans & is protective clothing required?

All PIP products are safe, environmentally friendly and harmless. No protective clothing is required and contact with bare skin will have no negative effects.

How To Store PIP products?

Because of the beneficial probiotic bacillus in Chrisal PIP Products, storage at room temperature between 50°-89° F (10°-30° C) is recommended. Never store in direct sunlight and temperatures above 140°F (60°C) are to be avoided.
