Keeping You and Your Family Safe

Foreign Alcohol based hand sanitizers are flammable. The news story at the bottom of this post is about gentleman in West Palm Beach, Florida who was severely burned after using foreign alcohol based hand sanitizer. A  spark ignited hand sanitizer that he had applied to his skin and he suffered serious burns. Keep you and your family safe from the dangers of these foreign hand sanitizers.   We should not send our children to school with alcohol based hand sanitizer.  There is no need to use alcohol based hand sanitizers when there are alternatives.

Heightened Demand For Alcohol Free Sanitizers

Numerous facilities (prisons, rehab centers, daycare centers, long term facilities, schools, pediatric offices) are increasing their demand for sanitizers without alcohol due to heightened public awareness of the dangerous risks and side effects that foreign hand sanitizers pose.

(Please note this post is FTC compliant as we do not mention any brand names. When alcohol based hand sanitizers are mentioned we are talking about foreign sanitizers.)

Also, not everyone’s hands are able to tolerate the harsh effects of repeated foreign alcohol applications – dry, painful cracked hands, dermatitis sadly leading to non-compliance and infection.

Flammability and toxicity of foreign alcohol sanitizers poses an issue in sensitive environments like schools.

As the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, the rate of Heathcare Acquired Infections in this country is increasing at an alarming rate to almost 100,000 per year with a total dollar cost that is reported to be between $4.5 and $5.7 billion annually.
Proper hand hygiene is crucial to preventing Heathcare Acquired Infections yet research has shown that compliance rates are only 30% to 57%.

About Foreign Alcohol Based Sanitizers

Foreign,  not FDA approved Alcohol based products kill germs by stripping natural oils from the skin.
Frequent use of foreign alcohol causes cracks in the skin, resulting in irritant dermatitis
Studies have validated that irritant contact dermatitis is the primary reason for compliance failure. Inflamed hands can be colonized with more bacteria and be a potential source of pathogens. The compromise of the skin barrier in addition to the increased bacteria can result in occupationally acquired infections and the possible spread of infection to other coworkers or patients.
