Why use foam hand sanitizer?
Whether you’re shaking hands with clients or completing projects at communal workstations, your hands are constantly exposed to bacteria. You can help keep them fresh and clean throughout the day with foaming hand sanitizer. The soft, rich lather clings to your hands, making it easier to spread around and ensure that your skin is fully covered, and moisturizing formulas made with ingredients like Vitamin E and aloe help keep skin smooth. Is skin irritation a concern? Look to an alcohol-free hand sanitizer that battles bacteria with other tough ingredients. You can place wall-mount dispensers of Purell® foam hand sanitizer in high-traffic areas for simple pump-and-go use, and choose small bottles of Dial hand sanitizing foam on desktops.
Is hand sanitizer bad for you?
In classrooms, healthcare facilities, gyms and airports - hand sanitizer is almost everywhere these days. How much is too much? While proven to be effective at helping prevent the spread of common illnesses like the flu, sanitizer isn't a substitute for a good scrubbing with soap and water. Plus, as with most things, moderation is key. Best practices indicate you can use sanitizer in addition to regular hand washing to help keep germs at bay, especially during times where you can't get to a sink. Keep a bottle in your emergency desk kit and regularly wipe down surfaces with a reliable cleaning solution, especially trash cans and kitchen counters, to help maintain a hygienic environment.
