Geogard ECT vs Germall Plus

It's a great choice for those with sensitive skin. In comparison to Germall Plus this is definitely a better choice. The downside is it reduces the PH of your product by half and has a very strong smell to it that will affect the smell of the product.

So far I like the product. It hasn't been long enough to know if it really preserves our product, but it is easy to use. Thank-you.
