Hand Sanitizers

Manufacturer

Hand Sanitizers are used as an alternative to hand washing with soap and water. Hand Sanitizers disinfect and sanitize. Given the amount of germs that even healthy people attract, hand sanitizers are an absolute necessity. Most hand sanitizers use a form of alcohol for its cleansing action. Ethanol, isopropanol and n-propanol are the most common Alcohol based Hand Sanitizers. Povidone-iodine is another common cleansing agent as well as Benzalkonium Chloride. Antiseptic Wipes are still another form of Hand Sanitation.

Liquid soaps are recommended by most over bar soaps for cleaning your hands. Liquid soap is easy to use and reduces the risk of spreading germs from one person to another. Many liquid soaps also include a moisturizing agent to prevent your hands from drying out from frequent hand washing. Antiseptic Hand Gel is particularly popular among consumers. The Best Selling Hand Sanitizer brands include Avagard, Cherry Bomb, Cleanwell, Clorox, Dial, Ecolab, EO, Germ X, Gojo, Gold Bond and Purell. Vitality Medical carries a wide Selection of Hand Sanitizers with additional information to help you Select the Right Hand Sanitizer for your needs, including Comparing Hand Sanitizers, the Types of Hand Soaps infographic, Hand Sanitizer Review, Hand Soap Statistics, and Hand Cleanser Studies.

Hand Sanitizer Comparisons

  • Alcohol Hand Sanitizer formulations offer excellent initial log reduction of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, fungi and multi-drug resistant pathogens such as vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
  • Alcohol sanitizers eliminate the widest range of microbes.
  • Alcohol hand sanitizers are gentler on the skin than soap
  • Alcohol based soaps often lead to higher hand-hygiene compliance levels and improved infection control practices due to ease and convenience of use.
  • Foam Sanitizers can be more expensive than gels or liquids.
  • Fragrance Hand Sanitizers may be more appealing to caregivers and patients that are not sensitive to allergies and may be used more often as a result. However, individual who are sensitive may experience nausea from the fragrance.
  • Gel Sanitizers offer thicker formulations over a thinner liquids. Gel hand soaps are less likely to spill. Gels are more easy to control volume when applying, resulting in less waste.
  • Antimicrobial Hand Soaps are better for visible soiling and possible harboring of transient pathogenic microorganisms.
  • Antisepticl Hand Soaps with Triclosan, PCMX or CHG as the active ingredient helps to maintain residual log reduction activity; and therefore, longer cleansing activity.
