If you look around the general high-street stores, you’ll notice that nearly all hand sanitizers and hand gels contain alcohol. These hand sanitizers are more common now than ever before, with the COVID pandemic highlighting the importance of hand hygiene.
The overall consensus seems to be that alcohol is needed to effectively kill germs and viruses. We’re here to tell you this is untrue. In fact, alcohol free hand sanitizers can provide protection against viruses alongside a number of further benefits.
- Long-lasting effect: On top of this, alcohol-free hand sanitizers contain a whole host of wider benefits. Alcohol based sanitizers on average, only protect your hands for a couple of minutes, unlike our Prefense Hand Sanitizer is able to provide a layer of protection that can last up to 24 hours at a time or equivalent to 10 hand washings.
- Great for sensitive skin: Unlike its alcohol counterpart, Prefense Hand Sanitizer alcohol-free hand sanitizer doesn’t dry out our hands by stripping away the natural oils on the skin that retain moisture. Skin is therefore left silky smooth. Furthermore, alcohol-free hand sanitizers are kinder to skin, making them suitable for children and those who may have sensitive skin.
- Pleasant odor: The smell of alcohol isn’t the most appealing to begin with, so applying alcohol to your hands can seem like a compromise to kill germs. Some alcohol sanitizers have added chemicals known as esters to help negate the smell, adding to the non-natural ingredients already present in alcohol sanitizers. With Prefense Hand Sanitizer alcohol-free hand sanitizer, the alcohol smell isn’t present, leaving hands with a more natural aroma.
- Non-flammable: One of the most alarming things about alcohol-based sanitizers is the potential for misuse or injury, intentionally or otherwise. There are cases where children have obtained burns from an alcohol sanitizer due to not being aware of the dangers when applied near open flames. The Prefense Sanitizer hand spray is 100% free from poisons and is safe for kids allowing parents to have peace of mind knowing their kids are well protected at all times.
