Keeping your hands clean is the easiest way to prevent disease and stop the spread of germs. It's not just a beloved statement by mothers, but a fact that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shares.
Multiple studies have found that using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer in a water-limited environment can be just as effective, if not more, than washing hands with soap. Additionally, with 97% of people washing their hands improperly, it is not surprising that incorporating hand sanitizer into your hygiene routine can actually reduce sick days, as researchers found in a 2018 study published in the Journal of Pediatrics.
The global regulatory requirements for the production and sale of hand sanitizers and cleaning wipes are complex. Scientifically backed testing and verification services can help speed up the production of hand sanitizers and cleaning wipes and avoid delays in the supply chain.
To further assess the safety of your product, we also offer extended tests to include microbiological evaluation of contaminants commonly found in hand sanitizers with less than 60% alcohol content such as Escherichia coli, salmonella, yeast and mold.
