Hand Sanitizer and Protectant
Most conventional hand sanitizers are gels comprised of ethyl alcohol in a thickened organic base. Their activity is primarily antibacterial, not antimicrobial and is limited to their presence on the skin which immediately ceases when evaporated from the skin. After application, they leave the skin surface very susceptible to reinfection. Their antibacterial properties are not persistent after application.
Germ Free 24 Hand Sanitizer is a specially formulated product containing the antimicrobial active ingredient, AMOSILQ. This active ingredient is unlike any product for topical skin application on the market today. On application to the hands, an antimicrobial, polymeric film is formed which is substantive and will remain through a minimum of ten hand washings. The AMOSILQ film formed on application of Germ Free 24 retains its broad spectrum antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal activity for up to 24 hours or more. It derives its antimicrobial activity through contact with the pathogen and causing disruption of the pathogens cellular wall, a process termed lysis. The AMOSILQ film is not incorporated into the pathogen cell and therefore no increased drug type resistance by the pathogen is acquired. The AMOSILQ ingredient contains a silicon material that orients to the skin surface during application to produce a protective, moisturizing film.
The Germ Free product line is state of the art technology and unlike any product available on the market today. AMOSILQ, the active ingredient, is totally unique in structure, effectiveness, persistence and application. It is a material which chemically combines proven antimicrobial chemistry with the protective, moisturizing capabilities of silicones in a single molecular compound. The water soluble AMOSILQ transforms to an invisible macropolymeric, polyionic layer on application to the skin which is not removed by repeated hand washing or rinsing. Not being removed by water, Germ Free 24 offers continuing antimicrobial protection coupled with long term moisturizing qualities. Germ Free 24 kills not only bacteria, but also viruses and fungi which can cause ringworm, and fungal nail infections. Application to the skin not only kills and inactivates bacteria, viruses and fungi, but also prevents reinfection. Germ Free 24 does not build or increase antibacterial or antimicrobial resistance in pathogens on repeated or prolonged use.
The big difference
The big difference between Germ Free 24 and other hand sanitizers on the market today is the other hand sanitizers are primarily ethyl or isopropyl alcohol formulations which are largely antibacterial in nature. While they will kill selected bacteria on application to the skin, they offer no residual germ killing properties. Application of these products to your hands will not only dry out your skin, they offer a fresh surface for germs to reinfect as soon as your hands are dry. Germ Free 24 is the only product that remains on your hands for all day protection. Germ Free 24 also moisturizes as it protects. The problem with using other hand sanitizer products is that without the antimicrobial barrier provided by Germ Free 24, they just become a new breeding ground for more germs. Germ Free 24 with AMOSILQ protects you from all types of germs all day long and actually makes your hands germ fighting machines. This technology is so unique and important that it is patent protected.
