Go Go and Check Us Out On Indiegogo

safeHands has a lot going on including the development and research of a new alcohol free hand sanitizer gel.  Right now our products all use a foamer to dispense our current alcohol free hand sanitizer.

We are looking to crowd funding to fund this project and there is no better site than Indiegogo to fund this project.

Why?  When most people think of hand sanitizer, they think of a gel delivery system in a tiny 1 oz bottle that clips to a backpack or belt loop for back to school. But with safety in mind, safeHands wants to develop and test a gel that is alcohol free, non-flammable and non-toxic.  We still want to use our main active ingredient Benzalkonium Chloride which has been used in first aid sprays like *Bactine made by Bayer HealthCare LLC.

We are asking the public to help us out with this project.  Even if you can’t help us out financially, feel free to spread the word about this project.  We appreciate any help.

 

At safeHands most of are marketing is done online and not through lobbying.

DON’T PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS

Mom always said that money is dirty. It’s full of bacteria, traces of drugs, and other chemicals now an article in the Tampa Bay Times is reporting that some St Petersburg College students and their teacher have discovered that traces of MRSA can be found in money.

MRSA is a staph bacteria that causes aggressive infections and is resistant to most antibiotics.

Another reason to keep Alcohol Free safeHands in your purse.

If you are a germophobe, you can stop here.

Of the more than 100 dollars collected so far, 60 percent tested positive for MRSA. About 50 percent of credit cards showed traces of MRSA.
Just 20 percent of the bills found at Pinellas County hospitals held traces of MRSA. But 80 percent of the bills found in the community tested positive.

Thank You Letter From Teacher

If there is any profession that deals with germs and sickness on a daily basis (besides individuals who work in the medical field) it is teachers. We sent some of our Bubble Gum scented alcohol free hand sanitizer to the PTA for their Teacher Appreciation Week.

Dear safeHands ,

“I want to take this time to thank you for your generous donation of Alcohol Free Squirt hand sanitizer for our Teacher Appreciation Week.. Our theme this year was Super Hero Week. The teachers loved receiving a bottle of Bubblegum Squirts in their mailboxes. We were really surprised at the pleasant smell and non-stickiness of your product too!”

Thank you,
Nancy
PTA Staff

Summer is Here: Hand Sanitizer and Traveling

Summer is upon us, the kids will be out of school, and it’s time for traveling. Also as you travel to different destinations, you’ll not only encounter the locals but their local germs. If you find yourself using an alcohol based hand sanitizer frequently, you should give alcohol free safeHands®  sanitizer a try.

 

Is safeHands® hand sanitizer safe to take on planes? Does the TSA allow safeHands® alcohol free hand sanitizer in your carry-on?

Yes. According to the TSA website, each traveler can carry up to a 3.4 ounce (100ml) bottle or less (by volume) (Source: http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/3-1-1-carry-ons )

However when it comes to traditional hand santizer, it may fall under the category of prohibited items according to the TSA Website.

Hazardous Material (HAZMAT): A substance or material that has been determined by the
Secretary of Transportation to be capable of posing an unreasonable risk to health, safety, or
property when transported in commerce as designated by DOT regulations and 49 C.F.R. 171.8.
For liquids and gels, it includes household and personal hygiene items with a high alcohol
content (>40 proof or 20% alcohol), such as perfume, after shave, hand sanitizer, mouthwash,
etc.

(Source: http://www.tsa.gov/video/pdfs/mds/TSA_MD_200_52_FINAL_080410.pdf )

If the liquid is considered a hazardous material that is permitted onboard an aircraft, it is still subject to the 3-1-1 limitations. Many questions arise on whether an item is hazardous material and what requirements must be met to take it on an aircraft. The Pipeline Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA) at 1-800-467-4922 or the aircraft operator on which you are flying can assist you with your questions concerning hazardous material.

Study: 2014 Alcohol Sanitizer Not Reducing Absenteeism

Putting alcohol-based hand sanitizers in classrooms in the hopes of reducing school absences due to illness may not be worth the expense in high-income countries where clean water for washing hands is readily available, a study says.  (http://www.livingstondaily.com/story/life/2014/08/25/study-hand-sanitizers-not-shown-to-cut-school-absences/14592581/)

 

The findings, reported inPLOS Medicine, do not apply to hospitals and health care facilities or in controlling the spread of gastrointestinal illness where hand sanitizers remain a vital component of infection control, says lead study author Patricia Priest of New Zealand’s University of Otago, in Dunedin, in an e-mail.

The study looked at 2,443 students, ages 5 to 11, in 68 schools in New Zealand. They each received a 30-minute in-class hand hygiene education lesson that reinforced knowledge about “germs causing sickness, and the need to wash hands well with soap and water after using the toilet, before eating, after touching pets, etc.

Lets go back to 2001 where  a double-blind, placebo-controlled study was to assess whether an alcohol-free, instant hand sanitizer containing surfactants, allantoin, and benzalkonium chloride could reduce illness absenteeism in a population of 769 elementary school children and serve as an effective alternative when regular soap and water hand washing was not readily available.

****After 5 weeks, students using the active product were 33% less likely to have been absent because of illness when compared with the placebo group. (Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11885342 )

Institutional Alcohol Free Hand Sanitizers

More and more schools and hospitals are going alcohol free for all kinds of  reasons.  The main ingredient in Alcohol Free safeHands Hand Sanitizer Foams is benzalkonium chloride which is just as effective in killing germs as the national leading brands of hand santizers.

The main ingredient in safeHands alcohol free hand sanitizer has been used in antiseptic sprays like Bactine*, eye drops and even mouth washes for years.

safeHands offers our products to distributors who sell to the healthcare industry, hospitals, schools, restaurant industry or any industry that wants or needs to go alcohol free.
