How Germ Ready Works

How It Works 

  • Germ Ready’s active ingredient, BZK or benzalkonium chloride, is a potent antimicrobial.

  • Simply, this compound kills germs and viruses. 

  • BZK creates disinfecting crystals on the skin that kill germs in 30 seconds.

  • These crystals with the help of a long lasting plant based moisturizer (saccharide isomerate) bond to your skin and continue their germ-killing activity for up to 6 hours.

The Benefits

  • Unlike alcohol-based hand sanitizers, Germ Ready’s formula avoids skin damage and provides moisturizers.

  • Germ Ready lasts longer than alcohol-based hand sanitizers.

  • Hands feel soft, not sticky or dry, even if you use more often than every 6 hours.

How Germ Ready Works

The science and technology behind Germ Ready have helped to create a safer, gentler, and more effective way of cleaning and protecting your hands when you need it most. Our innovative formula is made with benzalkonium chloride, also known as BZK, which is a powerful alternative to alcohol-based hand sanitizers.

What Is BZK?

Benzalkonium chloride is an organic salt compound that has been used for decades in the medical community as a skin disinfectant. It's also present in some household products, such as surface wipes and mouthwash. It's recently become a popular alternative to triclosan and alcohol, which were both popular antimicrobial ingredients for many years.

Recently, studies have shown that triclosan may be harmful and even toxic when used in high amounts or over long periods. Alcohol can be extremely harsh and drying and often leads to irritated skin. BZK has just as much disinfecting power as these other alternatives, killing 99.99% of all germs within just 30 seconds of application. However, BZK is a safer and gentler alternative that still provides maximum results.

How Does Germ Ready Last for Six Hours?

While Germ Ready's gentle and effective formula is certainly a plus, what truly sets our hand sanitizer apart from the competition is its long-lasting defense against future germ exposure. Germ Ready is still disinfecting up to six hours after application, while others fall short just moments after each use.

In addition to utilizing BZK for its potent antimicrobial properties, Germ Ready is also formulated with saccharide isomerate. This plant-based moisturizer plays a vital role in the six-hour protection process.

When you apply Germ Ready, the benzalkonium chloride forms tiny crystals on your skin. These crystals have the power to kill germs and viruses for hours at a time. Then, saccharide isomerate helps bond these crystals to your skin so they can continue their germ-killing activity while you go about your day.

How to Use Germ Ready

Unlike traditional hand sanitizers that require frequent reapplication, Germ Ready lasts for hours when used correctly. However, it's still best to use it as instructed to get the full benefits.

A Little Goes a Long Way

Germ Ready is perfect for using at home, at work, or when you're out running errands. You can apply it anytime, anywhere to enjoy the best long-lasting defense against germs and viruses. It's a great way to protect yourself and your family from illness so you can all live a happier, healthier life. It doesn't take much to enjoy the benefits of Germ Ready: just one to two pumps of our lightweight foaming hand sanitizer are all you need to experience hours of protection.

Once you've dispensed the foam into your hands, rub it into your skin for 30 seconds, being sure to apply it evenly over your palms, fingers, and backs of your hands. It takes about 30 seconds for the initial disinfection to occur and for the moisturizers to form a protective barrier with the BZK crystals.

Because Germ Ready uses such a small amount and doesn't require frequent reapplication, one bottle can last significantly longer than the equivalent amount of a traditional hand sanitizer. We can help you determine the right size and amount to purchase based on your individual preferences and needs.

Understanding Handwashing

It's important to remember that handwashing is still one of the best ways to remove germs and bacteria from your hands while preventing the unnecessary spread of illness. Germ Ready is not a replacement for handwashing, but it can certainly reduce the number of times you have to wash your hands each day. It's also the best alternative when you don't have access to soap and freshwater.

When you do wash your hands, be sure to reapply Germ Ready after every session. The process will remove the product from your skin, so you'll need another application to sanitize and protect.

The Benefits of Using Germ Ready Hand Sanitizer

When you use Germ Ready, you're choosing a safer, gentler alternative to traditional methods. Unlike frequent handwashing or alcohol-based sanitizers, this product will not dry out or strip your skin of its natural moisturizers. Just the opposite, Germ Ready is made with moisturizers to hydrate and soothe. It's also an excellent option for sensitive skin because it's free from:
