How to Properly Use Hand Sanitizer

By BlogNo Comments

When your hands are visibly dirty, you know you need to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. However, getting your hands clean involves more than that. You also need a good hand sanitizer to help kill germs and viruses.

Learn how to use hand sanitizer with Germ Ready - offering a non-toxic alternative to harsh alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

  • Germ Ready Hand Sanitizer includes a moisturizer that binds to your skin to keep it soft.
  • It kills 99.99% of germs and viruses on your hands, including COVID-19.
  • It gives you up to six hours of protection from the things you touch as you go about your day.

What Is Germ Ready Hand Sanitizer?

Germ Ready is a water-based, antimicrobial hand sanitizer foam that is safe for all skin types, including young children. It kills 99.99% of germs, and it’s good for the health of your skin. Unlike alcohol-based products that can cause dryness and irritation over time, our hand sanitizer uses moisturizers that bind to your skin and protect you for up to six hours after applying it. Available in 150 ML and 250 ML sizes, Germ Ready hand sanitizer protects you from the germs you encounter as you go about your day.

For good health, the Centers for Disease Control, or CDC, recommends washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds as often as possible and then using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. However, non-alcohol-based hand sanitizers using BZK, such as Germ Ready, have demonstrated effectiveness in rigorous laboratory studies.

  • A study published in the American Journal of Infection Control found that a hand sanitizer containing BZK significantly reduced the presence of Staphylococcus aureus on the hands when compared to an alcohol-based product.
  • A study conducted by Brigham Young University and published in The Journal of Hospital Infection found that an alcohol-free sanitizer, like Germ Ready, worked just as well as an alcohol-based product to kill viruses and germs when used with regular hand washes with soap and water. The study suggested that it might be preferable because of the shortage of alcohol-based hand sanitizer during the pandemic.

How Do I Use Hand Sanitizer?

Proper hand hygiene goes beyond removing the visibly dirty or greasy spots. Many people wonder if you still need to wash your hands with soap and water if you use a hand sanitizer. the answer is an enthusiastic yes. If your hands are visibly dirty or greasy, you want to wash off the grime with soap and water. Washing your hands is always essential to good health, especially if you provide medical care or handle food for others at work or home. For best results, scrub your hands with a disinfectant soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and then apply your hand sanitizer after.

To use our hand sanitizer, pump the bottle once or twice to get sufficient foam in the palm of one hand. Rub your hands together and let the foam dry as it bonds to your skin. The Germ Ready hand sanitizer contains BZK and it kills germs in as little as 15 seconds and dries within 30 seconds, giving you up to six hours of protection. You don’t need to rub your hands together and wipe the hand sanitizer off before it dries.

What Are the Advantages of Using Germ Ready Hand Sanitizer?

Alcohol supplies are vulnerable to the factors of supply and demand. When high-quality products are scarce, hand hygiene products may include inferior components that are less effective or even harmful. It uses Benzalkonium chloride, or BZK, rather than alcohol-based products. BZK is an organic salt found in other disinfectant products like soap, wipes, mouthwash, and medical products. According to Food and Drug Administration guidelines, BZK is the only active ingredient besides ethanol and isopropanol alcohol allowed for use in hand sanitizer. Germ Ready has the highest concentration of BZK available on the market.

The BZK in our hand sanitizer kills germs and viruses on the skin, including the virus that causes COVID-19. Because the sanitizer uses BZK instead of alcohol, it has some distinct advantages for your hands:

  • It works fast, within 30 seconds, and kills the invaders without drying out your skin. For people who work in healthcare, food service, and other industries where they use hand sanitizer many times a day, this is especially important. Alcohol-based products pull the oils out of your skin, leaving behind tiny cracks and even open wounds on your hands.
  • Your hands stay soft and never sticky, no matter how many times a day you disinfect your hands.
  • You get a powerful nontoxic hand sanitizer without the harsh alcohols, perfumes, and dyes of other products.
  • At Germ Ready, we take pride in the fact that our gluten-free hand sanitizers are made in the United States using a cruelty-free production process.
  • Our formula uses a moisturizer called Saccharide isomerate along with the BZK. The moisturizer helps your skin boost the production of hyaluronic acid, a known component in keeping hands hydrated. Not only does this component help keep your skin soft, but it also improves hydration and extends the germ-killing power of the sanitizer for up to six hours. When using hand sanitizer, you should reapply alcohol-based products as soon as you touch a door, shopping cart, or another surface.
  • It even disinfects minor cuts while protecting you from germs, something that regular soap and water don’t do.
  • Because it doesn't contain alcohol, it’s less flammable and safer to use in your home or on the go. While higher temperatures can render alcohol-based hand sanitizers less effective, that isn’t the case for Germ Ready.
  • It contains nontoxic ingredients, whereas a product with at least 60% alcohol can be poisonous or even deadly to young children and pets if consumed. You can send Germ Ready to school with your children without worry.
  • It doesn’t require water for washing or a cloth for hand drying. If you’re traveling or soap and water are not available, Germ Ready is still just as effective, which makes using hand sanitizer easier when you’re on the go.

The Germ Ready Alcohol-Free Foam Hand Sanitizer Difference

By Alcohol-free hand sanitizer, Personal HygieneNo Comments

Why understanding the difference between cheap versus cost effective is crucial if you want to save money, protect you and your family’s hands from germs and viruses, and avoid dangerous ingredients.

The major brands of alcohol-based hand sanitizer gel cost between $3 and $6 for a 12-fluid ounce bottle. There are plenty of other brands that have flooded the market at varying price points, depending on the percentage and type of alcohol used in their formulas, and additions of other added ingredients, such as moisturizers and CBD.

With an increase in demand for hand sanitizers in 2020 due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the news has been deluged with stories of alcohol and hand sanitizer shortages, lowered ingredient standards, price surges, and safety concerns as dangerous, highly flammable forms of alcohol have shown up in off brand hand sanitizers.

Fortunately, there is an alternative to alcohol-based hand sanitizers that is cost effective and use a safe ingredient, Benzalkonium Chloride, that has been proven to be as effective as alcohol-based hand sanitizers in killing germs and viruses. The active ingredient Benzalkonium Chloride, or BZK (also referred to as BKC), has been used as a disinfectant in such products as soaps and wipes by multiple industries, including hospitals, for over 70 years.  

germ ready bottles

Germ Ready hand sanitizing foam contains the highest percentage of BZK in a hand sanitizer on the market. Germ Ready in third party lab testing using EPA guidelines was shown to kill 99.99% of germs and viruses.

What makes Germ Ready hand sanitizing foam more cost effective than alcohol-based hand sanitizers?

Let’s look at how it works. Germ Ready hand sanitizing foam’s formula creates a bond with your skin and continues antimicrobial activity, simply put killing germs and viruses, lasting for 6 hours. Alcohol works on contact and the moment you touch a new surface, you must reapply. Germ Ready is long lasting, allowing you to use less while being confident that your hands stay protected.

Our 150ml (5oz) bottle contains over 225 pumps and one pump equals one application. For a real-world look at how that makes Germ Ready alcohol-free foam hand sanitizer cost effective, we asked our Germ Ready team members to share how they and their families use it daily.

One of our team members works in a setting where he is required to wash his hands regularly. He was using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer several times an hour in between handwashing. His skin was dry and cracking, which made him nervous about possibly being exposed to germs through his skin. While he still washes his hands regularly, he is now using Germ Ready about 8 times while he works, for protection between each handwashing. When he is not at work, he applies Germ Ready about 2 times a day. The 150ml bottle lasts him over a month. And his hands are not cracking anymore.

Our team member’s family of four each apply Germ Ready about 4 times a day. The 2 children use half a pump of foam, and the 2 adults use full pumps of foam. All together they use 12 pumps a day. Their family uses not quite two 150ml bottles a month. They used to buy at least 6 bottles of $6 alcohol-based hand sanitizer a month, spending $36, not to mention all the hand moisturizer they were using on their dry skin. For $20 a month their entire family is protected from 99.99% of germs and viruses and their hands stay soft and moisturized.

Our team member with smaller size hands says she prefers to use half a pump. She applies Germ Ready about 4 times a day, using approximately 2 full pumps. With over 225 pumps in a 150ml bottle, one bottle will last her over 3 months. Germ Ready costs her less than $3.50 a month.

Saving money is important but ensuring that what you are purchasing is safe to use is even more important. Germ Ready’s active ingredient BZK ensure safety by its very nature. BZK is a compound that is synthesized from components that exist in nature. Much like bread is synthesized by combining natural ingredients. These naturally components do not have dangerous alternatives available like alcohol does. Germ Ready ensures the quality of the formula’s BZK compounds by only purchasing hospital grade BZK from certified labs.

BZK is safe, cost effective, and kills germs and viruses, all without irritating skin like alcohol. The recent research from Brigham Young University published in the Journal of Hospital Infection shows that the CDC and FDA need to acknowledge the effectiveness of BZK in the same manner they acknowledge alcohol. It is imperative for the health and safety of everyone during the pandemic.

 “The implications from the research are that we can source a wider supply chain for PPE less expensively than we’re doing now, and that we don’t need to be burning or irritating our hands with alcohol when more soothing solutions exist.“ Mark Wilson stated in a recent Fast Company article “There’s a better hand sanitizer for Covid-19. Why aren’t we using it?”

The great news is that this soothing solution exists in a premium product that you can purchase now. Germ Ready moisturizing hand sanitizing foam is the 21st century solution to save money, avoid dangerous ingredients, and protect your hands from 99.99% of germs and viruses.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is the darling of skincare, it is used in serums and other skin care products to provide skin penetrating deep moisture and as a wrinkle reducer (3). 

Hyaluronic Acid is a sugar molecule that naturally occurs in the body, mostly found in our skin and joints. It has the unique ability to attract and hold water into the skin, hydrating the skin and leaving it looking supple and smooth. 

This molecule binds to water on one side and to collagen in the skin on the other. Tsippora Shainhouse, a dermatologist in Santa Monica, California in an article in Allure says HA simply “helps to bind water to collagen, trapping it in the skin, so that skin can appear plumper, dewier, and more hydrated." Who doesn’t want plump, hydrated skin? 

Safe for all skin!

Hyaluronic Acid molecules are present in skin, helping to keep your skin hydrated. It is a safe, non-toxic ingredient found in many skin and hair care products. It is already in your skin and it absorbs quickly when applied, helping to keep skin in tip top condition from the inside out. 

Not Just for Skin Care

It turns out that hyaluronic acid has more uses than moisturizing and making skin look great. Depending on what it is being used for, hyaluronic acid can be administered 3 ways: as a topical application, as a supplement, and as an injectable. Studies on hyaluronic acid’s other uses have all had promising results. It’s been shown to increase the rate wounds heal: relieve joint pain: relieve and heal damage from acid reflux: reduce dry eyes: improve bone strength: and even possibly relieve bladder pain. 

All in a Day’s Work

Hyaluronic Acid’s superpower is its super hydrating power. Keeping your hands smooth and moisturized is all in a day’s work for this super sugar molecule. 

Moisturizing is All in a Day’s Work for this Hand Sanitizing Foam

Germ Ready is an alcohol-free hand sanitizer with its own superpowers. It kills 99.99% of germs and viruses and continues its germ-killing activity for up to 6 hours. All while boosting hyaluronic acid and moisturizing your hands. 

Germ Ready Boosts Hyaluronic Acid

Germ Ready is an on-the-go hand sanitizing foam that lasts longer and does not dry out skin like hand washing and alcohol-based sanitizers. Germ Ready's plant-derived moisturizing ingredient, Saccharide Isomerate, boosts hyaluronic acid. Unlike topical hyaluronic acid, saccharide isomerate cannot easily be washed off because it bonds to your skin and keeps skin hydrated long after it is applied. 

Boosting Hyaluronic Acid is Super

Keeping our bodies moving, our skin glowing, and more is what makes hyaluronic acid super in our book. Boosting it in your skin keeps your skin supple and smooth.

Germ Ready moisturizes, keeps skin hydrated, and kills germs and viruses for up to 6 hours.
