UVnano Technology is LG’s newest innovation that revolutionizes personal protection. The technology uses ultraviolet light to eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria. The optional PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier charging case uses UVnano to clean the mask while it's charging, while the new air conditioners use ultraviolet light to sterilize the fan to prevent 99.99% of germs from adhering to its surface. This process makes the air blown through the unit that much purer, safer, and fresher.

A high-tech device needs a high-tech charging case. The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier charging case can remove up to 99.99% of bacteria in 30 minutes using UVnano technology, including Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus epidermidis, and Staphylococcus aureus. It is also supported by the LG ThinQ app. With the use of a smartphone, one can check usage history and the status of UVnano mode, Drying mode, and filter life through the app.


At home or at the office

When you’re just staying indoors, however, your best option for clean, pure air is LG’s new air conditioners that utilize the new Aircare Complete system. The system is a multi-step filtration process with UVnano technology that reduces allergens and harmful bacteria.

The first step of the process is the Safe Plus Pre-Filter, which traps big dust particles and removes 99.9% of the bacteria from the start. Next is the Ultra-Fine Dust (HAF) Filter that collects Particulate Matter (PM) 1.0 ultra-fine dust that is combined with (-) ion from Ion diffuser. After that is the Allergy Filter that reduces allergens with a filter for healthier air followed by the UVnano technology to keep the fan 99.99% bacteria-free. The multi-step process results in clean, pure air, all day, every day.

Another product to look out for is the LG PuriCare 360 which has a unique purification method that promotes 360 degrees of clean air delivery. This includes areas low to the ground where infants and toddlers can reap the rewards. It has an exceptional multi-filter system that captures six different types of particles to deliver purer, cleaner air. Its True HEPA Filter traps 99.7% of particles as small as 0.3 microns while a deodorization filter removes living odor, smog, and airborne chemicals. It has a unique PM 1.0 sensor that detects contaminants in the air one micron or smaller in diameter. More importantly, for families with newborns, the LG PuriCare 360 Air Purifier operates at whisper-quiet sound levels as low as 25dB.
