Scentractive hydrating hand sanitizer mists offer instant antiseptic and antimicrobial protection. Kills 99.99% of the most common germs. Works within 15 seconds with no water or towels.
Germs and bacteria are lurking everywhere. Whenever you twist a doorknob, lean on a railing, accept the change from a cashier, or push a button in an elevator, germs can transfer from the surface to your skin. Scentractive is efficient at killing germs in 15 seconds, whenever and wherever you encounter them, without the need for water or towels.
We have created a hand sanitizer that is based upon the FDA and WHO recommended formulas to kill 99.99% of germs and viruses at a sane price.
Many studies have found that sanitizers with an alcohol concentration between 60–95% are more effective at killing germs than those with a lower alcohol concentration or non-alcohol-based hand sanitizers 16,20. Hand sanitizers without 60-95% alcohol 1) may not work equally well for many types of germs, and 2) merely reduce the growth of germs rather than kill them outright.
Hand sanitizers may not be as effective when hands are visibly dirty or greasy. Many studies show that hand sanitizers work well in clinical settings like hospitals, where hands come into contact with germs but generally are not heavily soiled or greasy 16. Some data also show that hand sanitizers may work well against certain types of germs on slightly soiled hands 17,18. However, hands may become very greasy or soiled in community settings, such as after people handle food, play sports, work in the garden, or go camping or fishing. When hands are heavily soiled or greasy, hand sanitizers may not work well 3,7,16. Handwashing with soap and water is recommended in such circumstances.
The steps for hand sanitizer use are based on a simplified procedure recommended by CDC 21. Instructing people to cover all surfaces of both hands with hand sanitizer has been found to provide similar disinfection effectiveness as providing detailed steps for rubbing-in hand sanitizer 22.
