About Bactive

About Us

Bactive is the frontline in defense for homes, hospitals and schools; providing accessible, certified cleaning products to protect our communities.

Our History

In response to COVID-19, ZURU was contacted in March 2020 by New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to determine if they could mobilise and source Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for NZ. ZURU promptly responded by supplying over 100 million pieces of Bactive PPE for the NZ Health system.

With unprecedented global demand for the new Bactive range of Disinfectant Wipes, Hand Sanitiser and PPE, the ZURU Health Bactive brand is growing across the world with a team committed to supporting this important clinical space long into the future.


Bactive’s vision is to become a 21st century healthcare company that ultimately creates change and positively impacts the lives of people all around the world.

Our Efforts

ZURU Health’s expert clinicians are directly involved in the design and testing process to ensure all products achieve optimal function, durability and comfort on the healthcare frontline. We are dedicated to keeping patients, their families and healthcare professionals safe.

We are committed to ensuring healthcare workers have access to quality PPE to protect themselves and their patients in today’s challenging clinical environment.

Our Pillars

In a category of such global importance, Bactive has a responsibility to deliver. To families, to health care professionals, and to institutions. We are prioritising health and hygiene globally and do not compromise on performance or safety.



We are experts in our field, partnering with the likes of Lonza, Exponent & G&G in the delivery of the Bactive EPA Disinfectant Wipes program. We were contacted by New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in response to the COVID-19 crisis. In response, we supplied over 100 million pieces of Bactive PPE for the NZ Health System.

For these reasons and many others, we are a brand you can trust.

Sustainability & Ethical Sourcing


ZURU maintains a strict Ethical Sourcing Policy that forms a part of our contract manufacturing agreements with our product suppliers. ZURU requires that its suppliers abide by our labour protection mandates, meaning that suppliers:

  1. Allow employment to be entered into on a completely voluntary basis, meaning there is no forced or bonded labour, slavery or human trafficking.
  2. Forbid restrictive practices such as requiring employees to lodge deposits or their identity papers, meaning employees are free to leave their employment at any time without restriction.
  3. Promote a safe and hygienic working environment for employees, including regular health and safety checks and training.
  4. Forbid child labour, meaning suppliers must only employ employees who meet the local minimum age requirement as set by law.
  5. Comply with local legal requirements pertaining to working hours and overtime; and forbid harsh or inhumane treatment, such as abuse (physical, verbal, sexual, psychological or otherwise) and other forms of intimidation.

All our suppliers are required to hold and maintain active ethical audit certifications from either SEDEX or BSCI.

ZURU Health is also committed to reducing our overall carbon footprint & recognise the importance of sustainability within the health sector. To that end, we are actively engaging in moving toward more environmentally friendly product packaging and new/innovative sustainable products in the future.
