General Info / Facts:

$
Alcohol hand sanitizers are ineffective when applied to hands that are not completely clean (Alcohol cannot penetrate the film of grease, dirt or oil on the epidermis) thus making them ineffective.
$
Alcohol hand sanitizers can quickly reduce the number of germs on your hands, but since alcohol evaporates within 30 seconds, it leaves hands vulnerable and unprotected until the next application.
$
Frequent use of alcohol gel sanitizers leaves a biofilm on skin surfaces that actually trap dirt and foster the growth of germs and bacteria.
$
Alcohol hand sanitizers are only effective if they contain enough alcohol 62% (sixty-two percent IPA).
$
Alcohol-based hand sanitizers contribute to drying and chapping of hands.
$
Traditional hand sanitizers are highly flammable and can cause alcohol poisoning if ingested.
