The Truth About Hand Sanitiser
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we have all learned quite quickly the importance of hand sanitation in disease control. The one most important message that remains – we MUST wash our hands before and after each activity in our day.
An infectious disease expert from Columbia University, Stephen Morse, stated that “clean hands are a very important way to prevent the spread of infection, especially with viruses like the Coronaviruses, which can survive on surfaces or inanimate objects for hours, to even a day or more.”
Of course, there are many circumstances throughout our day where we simply cannot access soap and water. Enter one of the hottest products of 2020 – Hand Sanitiser. A professionally formulated Hand Sanitiser will kill the vast majority of virus particles and bacteria in 15 to 30 seconds; about the time it takes for the product to dry on your hands. Amazing stuff, right? Well… not always. As fast as demand has been growing for this convenient wonder product, so too have the number of ‘new’ suppliers popping up around the globe. Hand Sanitiser products have been flooding the market in abundance; in many shapes, colours and sizes. Only one question remains – how do you choose?
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the World Health Organisation has released their guidelines for Hand Sanitiser products, stating that alcohol-based sanitisers should contain 60-80% alcohol in order to be deemed effective in minimising the spread of COVID-19. As a result, large volumes of high alcohol formulas have been flooding the market. Of concern, is the fact that many of these are being produced by inexperienced manufacturers.
So how do you know you’re choosing the best quality Hand Sanitiser?
