Pipila contains a small UV/03 lamp that kills germs using a dual-action process. The oxygen in the air reacts with a range of wavelengths and ozone to safely eliminate 99.9% of germs and bacteria. The process also creates oxygen, leaving the pacifier without any residue or odors. UV light is often used in hospitals to sterilize operating rooms and remove germs from the air. It breaks down viruses and exposes the reproductive component (DNA or RNA), destroying bacteria instantly.
