safeHands® Alcohol-Free Hand Sanitizers to Debut in Albertsons Stores

World’s First Doctor-Invented Line Available in More Than 725 Stores

 

Boca Raton, Fla. (May 6, 2014) – safeHands®, the world’s first doctor-invented alcohol-free hand sanitizer line, announces its debut into more than 725 Albertsons stores across the country and will soon be found in the hand sanitizer aisle. Dr. Jay Reubens, the inventor of the first touch-free dispenser, created safeHands in an effort to create a hand sanitizer that is non-toxic, soothing and works with the skin’s natural oils to increase in germ killing with each consecutive use. Both the safeHands® Squirts and safeHands® Classic Line, their respective children’s and adult products, leave even the most sensitive of skin moisturized and soft.
“As we enter the summer months full of travel, summer camp and outdoor activities, it is important now more than ever that hand sanitizerpeople have alternatives to other  hand sanitizers,” said Reubens, CEO of safeHands. “We hope to become a solution for consumers looking for alcohol-free alternatives and to help do our part in ensuring every child and adult is germ-free.”

safeHands is safe for the whole family with its hydrating and moisturizing foam. safeHands’ active ingredient is  Benzalkonium Chloride (BAC), the same ingredient in mouthwash and eye drops, to create a hand sanitizer that is tough on germs and safe for skin.

Minnesota Becomes First State To Ban Triclosan

An article by Healthy Living  has a great story  about Minnesota banning antibacterial products containing Triclosan.  safeHands does not contain triclosan.

The FDA is currently reviewing triclosan after some studies may suggest it can cause hormone disruption when absorbed in the skin.

Here is an excerpt from the article:
What types of antibacterial products are OK to use?

Even without triclosan, there are still plenty of other antibacterial products to choose from. The simplest may also be the oldest: alcohol. Alcohol kills bacteria quickly and effectively, as do peroxides and chlorine compounds. If you’re donating blood, it’s an alcohol swab that will clean your skin before the needle goes in, Phillips said.

Many companies, including Proctor & Gamble and Johnson & Johnson, are redesigning their products in response to the FDA’s query into triclosan, Cozean said. Cozean’s company, Innovative BioDefense, produces Zylast, an antimicrobial product that uses benzalkonium chloride as its active ingredient, and contains no triclosan. While alcohol, peroxides and chlorines all work rapidly and then disappear, benzalkonium chloride is a residue-producing antibacterial, meaning it can remain and work for hours after application. If you have questions about a specific antibacterial, talk to your health care provider.
