In the absence of soap and water, hand hygiene protocol recommends using a hand sanitizer. There are three active ingredients approved for hand sanitizer manufacturing; one is alcohol-free (benzalkonium chloride, “BZK”), and two are alcohol-baed (ethanol, isopropyl). Trending amid the global health crisis are injuries and deaths from accidental and international misuse and abuse of alcohol-based hand sanitizers among children and adults. Sub-par manufacturing practices with alcohol-based hand sanitizers triggered an ongoing government warning.
The public has been alerted to alcohol-based hand sanitizer in food and beverage packaging, with added flavors and colors and known brands containing deadly contaminants (methanol, 1-propanol). All the while, alcohol-free hand sanitizer has maintained a stellar reputation.
Alcohol-based hand sanitizer was first introduced to the public in 1965. Fifty-five years later, in 2020, a major industry advancement occurred with the launch of alcohol-free hand, body, and surface sanitizers as a complete solution for the public. Science and medical research now prove that alcohol-free hand sanitizer is far superior in effectiveness, compared to alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
Knowing the difference between alcohol-free and alcohol-based hand sanitizer allows freedom of choice with personal, child, and public safety.
