Let us introduce you to the best hand sanitiser in Australia

, by AussiePharmaDirect, 2 min reading time

We all know that regular hand sanitising has been a very important part of our hand hygiene steps to fighting against anti-microbial transmission.

We’ve all become used to carrying around our mini hand sanitiser wherever we go - to regularly sanitise our hands at work, and when we go to our local café or entertainment venue. Regular use of hand sanitisers has become the new norm.

For people working in jobs like healthcare or dealing with the public, sanitising up to 20 or more times a day is not uncommon.

Of course, we happily do this in order to help prevent the spread of nasty microbes. It is essential to remember that hands are one of the primary vehicles for transmitting germs, bacteria, and viruses from person to person, and therefore, maintaining clean hands is critical to protecting ourselves and others. However, what is all this regular sanitising for the sake of hand hygiene doing to our skin?

The price of cleanliness

One of the most common effects of hand sanitisers on the hands is dryness and irritation. Most hand sanitisers contain alcohol, which can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness and cracking.

Frequent use of hand sanitisers can also disrupt the natural microbiome of the skin. The skin is home to a diverse community of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi, that help maintain its health and integrity. Prolonged use of alcohol-based hand sanitisers can kill not only harmful bacteria but also beneficial ones, leading to an imbalance in the skin's microbiome. This can make the skin more susceptible to infections and inflammation.

ViroCLEAR hand sanitiser is alcohol and ethanol-free, but deadly to 99.99% of germs and bacteria. Developed here in Australia by BioInnovate, it contains native Australian plant extracts along with an active ingredient and is alcohol-free, non-drying and non-irritating.

That’s great news for all of us who regularly sanitise our hands, but especially good news for people with sensitive or damaged skin.

An effective, non-alcohol hand sanitiser like ViroCLEAR may be a great alternative for elderly people and in nursing homes where sensitive or damaged skin is common. Also for children or pregnant women who may want to avoid micro-absorption of alcohol particles.

If you’re looking for hand sanitiser bottles to be placed at home or any premises you own, then the 500ml pump is your best choice. 

So when you’re considering purchasing a hand sanitiser, be sure to choose one that is alcohol and ethanol-free.
