SafeHands active ingredient, Benzalkonium Chloride (topical antiseptic), is listed and recommended in the FDA TFM guidelines and is an active ingredient that has been used in eye drops, nose sprays and mouth washes for 60 years. SafeHands is gentle, but tough on germs. Its unique formulae serves as an antiseptic germicide – that destroys viruses alcohol-based hand sanitizers cannot. In fact, according to Microbiologist Jason Tetro at the University of Ottawa, alcohol-free hand sanitizers have been proven to last up to 8 hours, which is much longer than alcohol-based hand sanitizers, which evaporate after 10-20 seconds. In addition, we have proven through clinical studies that alcohol-free hand sanitizers, like safeHands are healthier for your skin than alcohol-based hand sanitizers. For instance, in a study performed at California State University, Fresno where 20 volunteers were administered our hand sanitizer several times over several hours, only one volunteer reported mild skin irritation on their hands. Also gel-based hand sanitizers are not as effective at preventing and removing germs, since they have been proven to increase the dirt on your skin after repeated use, due to removal of protective natural skin oils and entrapment of dead skin cells by the polymer thickeners used in gel-based hand sanitizers.

Besides being healthier for your skin and removing germs that alcohol-based hand sanitizers cannot, safeHands is much safer to have around young children, since it is non-toxic and non-flammable, unlike alcohol-based hand sanitizers, which can cause poisoning and flash fires.
