In the middle of years of research on antimicrobial technology, Tom’s father passed away from a hospital-acquired infection. He found himself newly driven toward developing technologies that would eliminate the possibilities of germs, improperly cleaned, killing another person’s loved one.
With the help of my late father and a former Dean of Harvard Medical School, the Goldshield Formula was born. Today, our families work tirelessly toward their dream of spreading this safe protection to every corner of the world.

Goldshield is committed to providing simple ways that protect what matters, and what matters to us is the health and safety of the World’s population with a clear focus on children. We are all faced with the challenges of microbial contamination that can range from viral pandemics to the sustainability issues of our planet. We firmly support the balance of our Earth’s biosphere and human civilization. The importance of this commitment to co-exist is a goal we as a company are firmly dedicated to.
We will use only recycled containers and will purify our water when manufacturing our water-based formulations. In using any general textiles, we will use organic or synthetic recycled polymers. We will continue to use various organic compounds in all our formulations and where appropriate botanicals. Our manufacturing criteria is committed to the same objectives. We reduce energy consumption, we use only recycled packaging materials, and where available utilize transportation fleets that are more efficient.
Leave no child un-protected – this is our goal. We have made a corporate commitment to seek out charitable organizations to whom we can provide packages intended for developing nations and populations that will aid in improving water purification, offer skin protective sanitizers, provide room and air quality products that mitigate nasty microbes, and offer personal protective equipment that will not only inhibit viral inhalation, but kill the organisms.
To this we are dedicated.
