Let’s talk about hand hygiene. 

Aside from the fact that this is a current hot topic, proper hand hygiene is crucial at all times. If you read our last blog on this topic, we discussed the steps for proper hand washing with soap and water. Since these sources aren’t always readily available, hand sanitizer is the next best option. 

But what’s the difference? 

According to the CDC, soap and water are more effective when it comes to killing certain types of germs, like norovirus (stomach bug) and C. Diff (a very violent stomach bug). Aside from the difference in effectiveness, hand sanitizer isn’t always used properly. 

If your hands are especially greasy or dirty, alcohol based sanitizers may not get the job done because they can’t penetrate, break apart, and remove the grime like soap and water. The process is also fairly specific if you want maximum effectiveness. It’s essential to cover all surfaces of the hands and rub them together until they are completely dry. If done correctly, hand sanitizers provide a similar enough effectiveness to using soap and water. 

So, if the essential soap and water aren’t readily available, be sure to have some alcohol based hand sanitizer on hand… preferably both. See what we did there? 

Now, let’s talk about Mountaineer Brand Hand Sanitizer… 

We are all about all-natural products and fully encourage using them, but we also felt the need to step up and assist the community during a time of need. COVID-19 has caused a shortage of hand sanitizer across the globe, so we decided to make one that meets FDA requirements. Check out the details: 

  • INGREDIENTS: 80% Ethanol Alcohol, Glycerin, Hydrogen Peroxide, Water
  • Antiseptic formula 
  • 80% Ethanol Alcohol
  • FDA recommended formula for effective use

We have chosen to meet these requirements for maximum effectiveness in order to keep you and your family safe during these difficult times. While it may not be our typical product formulated with the all-natural ingredients you’ve come to love, it’s a necessary addition to our product line. You’ll find that it’s very reasonably priced, so go ahead and grab one for your office, job site, bag, or vehicle. Just remember, if you have soap and water as an option, we suggest using that first!
