In this fast growing and rapidly developing world with high paces and increasing population the hygiene is as important as never before. Big cities, busy airports, urban traffics and active communication leads to growing risk of diseases and infections. One of the most basic precautions is to keep your hands clean but you do not always have a chance to wash you hands with the soap and wipe them with a towel. The best way out is to use hand sanitizers.
A hand sanitizer or hand antiseptic is a supplement or alternative to hand washing with soap and water.
There is a lot of different hand sanitizers of different forms and types but I personally prefer the bottled ones due to convenience and easiness of use. But hand sanitizers may come as a gel, foam or liquid and it’s only a matter of preference.
The high efficiency of the hand sanitizer is based on the main active ingredient that could be either alcohol or ethanol derivatives. It may seem as alcohol may dry out the sensitive hand skin but it is one of the most common mistakes. The ordinary soap dries out the skin way more than any sanitizer does. The hand sanitizers are highly effective at killing microorganisms and are the best precaution to avoid the transmission of pathogens. The sanitizers are also good at killing bacteria, fungi and even some viruses.
It is definitely a great solution whenever you do not have an opportunity to wash your hands with the soap and water. These sanitizers require about 30 seconds to completely air dry. My favorites are the Hand Sanitizers by Bath and Body Works called PocketBac. The active ingredient in these is the Ethanol in the amount of 68% v/v. Besides being a perfect hand sanitizer PocketBac also comes in a huge variety of different scents and colors. The bottles on the photos are the old version of BBW hand sanitizers and the new ones come in an oval packaging that is pretty cute. The amount of product is still the same – 29 ml or 1 fl oz that lasts me for a bout a couple of months of regular use.
The hand sanitizer is an essential part of my daily hygienic routine. I feel comfortable and secure whenever I have a sanitizer in my bag as I know I have something to fight the bacteria and protect my skin. And I love the Bath and Body Works hand sanitizers for divine scents and cute packagings.
Do you use any hand sanitizers? Which ones do you prefer?
