Hand sanitizer is a cleaning product that many people use in their lives and often wash their hands with hand sanitizer, I have a question, does hand sanitizer have an antiseptic effect?
1.Does hand sanitizer have an antiseptic effect?
Depending on the situation, ordinary hand sanitizer has no sterilizing effect, while professional antiseptic hand sanitizer has sterilizing effect.
①General hand sanitizer: cleans and removes stains.
②Antiseptic hand sanitizer: antibacterial, antimicrobial or bactericidal active ingredients.
③Heavy oil hand sanitizer: industrial oil (such as oil, gasoline, butter, diesel, etc.) and stubborn stains. Tips: Different hand sanitizers have different packaging, ordinary hand sanitizer is generally “quasi-brand”, disinfectant hand sanitizer is mostly “dissipative”.
2.How to wash hands correctly with disinfecting hand sanitizer?
Moisten your hands with water first, take the right amount of hand soap and rub your hands for at least 30 seconds, in this process, make sure to rub the fingertips, and let the foam cover the whole hand. Caution: Finally, be sure to dry with a clean, dry towel or paper towel, preferably not tumble dry, because the rapid evaporation of surface water can lead to partial loss of water, causing the skin to dry out and become rough.
3.The benefits of frequent hand washing
Washing hands can reduce the incidence of diarrhea by 31% (for the elderly and children, who have weaker immune systems and are more prone to diarrhea, frequent hand washing can even reduce this risk by more than half (58%); in addition to diarrhea, hand washing is also effective in preventing respiratory illnesses, including colds, by 16%-21%. In other words, frequent hand washing is not only a good habit to maintain personal health, but also an important intervention to prevent the spread of diseases.
4.How to choose hand sanitizer?
① go to the regular shopping malls, supermarkets or national chain stores to buy, because the purchase channel there is more stable, and there are more strict purchase gatekeeper system.
Observe whether the packaging is intact, the bottle is clear on the printing of the word, the pump head is strong. General hand sanitizer is made by squeezing the pump out of the liquid, if the quality is poor, in use there may be no liquid outflow or leakage.
③ see whether the identification on the packaging is complete, such as with or without the factory name, address, etc., pay particular attention to whether there is a standard number. Although there is no unified national standard for hand sanitizer, but the state does not allow the production of no standard. Each manufacturer should set enterprise standards and indicate the enterprise standard number on the package to ensure product quality.
④Pay attention to the quality of hand sanitizer. The public can first smell if there is any odor, pungent smell, etc. If there is any, it may be that the product has passed its expiration date or banned raw materials have been used, so it is best not to buy or use it.
⑤If so, it means that the emulsification process is not well controlled in the production process, which will affect the hand-washing effect.
