Carefully engineered products for quality-conscious pet owners

NanoSanitas is a PLiN trademark, debuting in a brand of nano-enhanced pet products inspired by nature. Through engineering our products down to the nanoscale, we were able to mimic nature’s ability to heal, protect and repel, using Nano-Silver as a physical shield to pathogens.

We know that your pet's health is important to you, so we designed a product-line free of parabens and harmful chemicals… but we didn’t stop there! Our nanomaterials were created with the sole purpose of promoting your pet’s health. Whether it’s skin/fur care or oral health, NanoSanitas products are dedicated to keeping your pet active and healthy.

To meet the needs of your pet, we tailor our products to age, gender and all other aspects that make your companion unique! Our shampoos for instance, are pH-balanced (gender/hormone specific) and come in both, long and short hair variations.

If you are looking for the best for your pet, continue reading, check out our products and stay up to date with our clinical studies.

NanoSanitas

Nanotechnology at its best, in everyday products

safe

NanoSanitas is a proprietary Silver-based technology that promotes wound healing and relieves from infections*. All our products contain trace amounts of Nano-Silver (15-25ppm), which is a natural shield against bacteria and other pathogens, thus also defending your pet from Fleas & Ticks*.

We produce the nanoparticles in-house using environmentally-friendly processes! Ensuring high production standards and rigorous quality control, guarantees a narrow size distribution of our nanoparticles, while application specific surface functionalization renders all our products hypoallergenic. Perfectly safe for human use (e.g. skin-compatible, non-irritating) and easy/repeated application.

*NanoSanitas Products are not intended as pharmaceutical substitutes, they work best as part of a holistic approach to either wound healing or flea & tick control.

The enormous benefit of nanomaterials to Pet-care products

Pathogens are less likely to become resistant to Nano-Silver than any other active ingredient (i.e. antibiotics or chemical biocides). We have optimized the effectiveness of our products in tailoring their adhesive properties based on application e.g. dental gels are mucoadhesive, whereas shampoos contain nanomaterials with optimized ζ-potential (surface charge) that allows them to “adhere” to your pet’s fur.

Whether shampoo, dental gel or anti-odor spray, the Nano-Silver in all of our products promotes your pet's health, through a synergetic effect that is designed to bring out the best in your pet.


Nanosilver

Nano-silver, ought to its attractive physicochemical and biological properties, is the most commercially used amongst all nanomaterials. Its applications are virtually endless, spanning from pharmaceuticals to electronics. Our proprietary production method allows us to extend the enormous advantages of these nanomaterials to a wide range of low cost products.

The action of Nano-silver is based on its small size, allowing it to invade the cellular membrane of bacteria and prevent their proliferation. Based on the size, shape and surface functionalization of the particles, they can target specific microorganisms, thus providing a selective action, increasing the efficacy and user-friendliness of the product.


NanoSanitas for Pets

Take care of your pets with PLIN’s new-age product line designed especialy for our little friends.

NanoSanitas Pet-Line debuts with two existing products, while two further are undergoing final testing/certification. Our aim is to provide holistic care for quality-conscious pet owners, which are looking only for the best for their little companions.

Shampoo Line

Designed for gentle cleansing, our shampoos can be used either by themselves or combined with other cleaning products. Engineered to meet the individual need of your companion, they are pH-balanced (gender/hormone specific) and come in both, long and short hair variations, as their viscosity and shear thinning values are optimized for application.

    Instructions of use

    Prior to bathing, brush thoroughly to remove any tangles or debris from the fur.

    Wet your companion with water of an appropriate temperature i.e. warm (not hot) during winter and cooler during summer. Lather the shampoo thoroughly into the dog's fur. In the presence of ticks & fleas, start massaging your pet at the head, to distribute the shampoo and gradually work toward the body (this will prevent parasites moving upwards the body to the head). Let the shampoo sit for 2-3 minutes, then rinse thoroughly, until the water runs clear. No specific drying required.

    Keep away from children.
