Remember a few years ago when hand sanitizers first came to the market? Everyone thinks they are amazing products (the best thing since the saying “sliced bread”). People are captivated by the fact that they can kill 99.9% of disease-causing germs on their hands in 15 seconds or less. What a miracle!
Bad hand sanitizers like the original racehorses, who were favorites in the race, came out of the starting gate but eventually faded drastically on the final stretch. How can that promising product taper like my new skinny jeans? Now, this is my opinion of what happened and why I think it is time for hand sanitizers to take their proper place in society.
The first-hand sanitizer on the market is a gel and contains alcohol and is still there, for that matter. Over time, several studies have revealed that alcohol-based hand sanitizers are actually bad for your hands. You see, alcohol causes the skin to become dry and cracked, thus leaving a gap where germs become trapped. In fact, research shows that the more often you use it, the less effective it is.
The report also states that we should not use hand sanitizers because they weaken our endurance and reduce our ability to fight germs. They frighten us into thinking that if we depend on hand sanitizers, we will become weak and unable to fight bad germs.
I’m sure many of you have heard this sentence before, “we need bacteria … actually helps us … it makes us stronger” My response to this: “Phooey” is solid. Let’s be clear … there are many types of bacteria out there and many of them can make us sick.
Of course, don’t forget germaphobic which also contributes to bad rap. When we think of hand sanitizers, pictures of people who are obsessed with eccentric germs endlessly pumping hand sanitizer into their pale hands come to mind. Not a beautiful view.
Well, it’s time for someone to talk and come to save hand sanitizer. It’s time to clear all popular misunderstandings, open our hearts and minds, and return the hand sanitizer to the place it should be in society. A pretty brave attitude, you think? Let me present my case.
First of all, almost everything that has been reported about alcohol-based hand sanitizers is true, and I don’t recommend we embrace them. What I’m talking about are alcohol-free hand sanitizers … very different animals.
Here’s the style: 80% of germs are transmitted by hand and because washing hands is not always possible, and alcohol-free hand sanitizers are the right solution. Imagine having a personal invisible shield that protects you from germs 24/7? I don’t know about you, but I want to always have my personal bodyguard, fighting evil germs.
Soft alcohol-free hand sanitizer, safe for the whole family, non-toxic, non-flammable and leaves no sticky residue on your hands. The active ingredient is Benzalkonium Chloride and has been widely used for more than 40 years by medical professionals. It is approved for safety and effectiveness in many antiseptic applications, including skincare. It is also used extensively as a preservative in cosmetics and many free products, including baby nasal sprays. This alcohol-free hand sanitizer kills 99.9% of germs in less than 15 seconds. I talk about malignant germs that cause diseases such as Salmonella, Norwalk Virus, E. coli, SARS, Avian Influenza, and many more.
When washing hands is not possible, alcohol-free hand sanitizers are the answer. There is a portable mini spray that you can carry in your wallet, briefcase, backpack, computer bag, pocket, whatever. Or, bring one when you shop, travel, fly, drive or take the subway. Always carry one “in your hand” (you must have seen it coming) … keep one on your desk, in your homeroom, or in your locker at school. Alcohol-free hand sanitizers are affordable, comfortable, and can keep you and your family safe from germs that cause disease.
I’m not suggesting that you pump every minute of your day, but I truly believe it’s time for the most maligned, alcohol-free hand sanitizer to take its proper place in society. Stop injustice and spread germs … get yourself an alcohol-free hand sanitizer today and stay healthy! You owe it to yourself, your family, and your friends.
