As a result of the crisis, the hydro-alcoholic gel dispenser has become an object of our daily lives, and disinfecting hands is a well-established habit. Focus on the gels to be preferred to be sure to protect your employees when you are a business manager.
In "hydroalcoholic" there is "alcohol" and it is not for nothing... Because to be effective and deserve its name,the gel you provide to your employees and/or your customers must contain a sufficient quantity.
To give you an idea, it is estimated that the concentration of alcohol is not high enough below 60%,and it is rare that formulas contain more than 80%. For example, bear in mind that the vials must contain 70% alcohol in order to eliminate germs and bacteria.
If you are really picky about the composition of this hand hygiene product,you can stick to the WHO formulation,which is limited to 4 ingredients:
A short list, which minimizes the risk of allergic reaction since it is fragrance-free or dye-free... And ultimately does not contain any substance that is not absolutely essential to the formula.
There is a European standard (EN14476) that ensures that a hydroalcoholic gel really allows good hand disinfection and above all to eliminate viruses from the coronavirus family. But to make sure the product is legal, you can also make sure that the following are on the bottle:
Once purchased, you will also find that the product is compliant by using it: if it sticks and takes time to evaporate, it is not the best gel you can find!
Since the beginning of the crisis, the web has provided its share of recipes for "homemade" hydroalcoholic gel, based on vodka, vegetable glycerin, aloe vera gel, essential oils... And other ingredients that do not guarantee optimal elimination of coronavirus.
If we understand where the desire to find a more "clean" composition to products intended to be used every day was born, it is better to avoid spreading the epidemic, and to use gels recognized as really effective.
For hydroalcoholic gel to be effective, it is imperative to use it on dry hands, which - it is paradoxical but it is like this - seems to be unique to the naked eye.
In quantity, a small hazelnut in the palm of the hand is enough.
Once this hazelnut is deposited, go to the handwashing: rub your hands, keeping them at a distance from your nose so as not to breathe too closely for about 20 seconds.
The product must evaporate: if it sticks, it is because its quality is not optimal.
Warning: some hydroalcoholic gels have already been recalled!
According to UFC Que Choose, they include:
Note that for most of them, you can take them back to the store and get a refund if you've already purchased them.
To ensure that a gel is regulated and ensures effective action on viruses and bacteria,the best solution is to go to a pharmacist, who is in the best position to advise the appropriate product.
However, when you are a business manager, sometimes the containers found in pharmacies are not enough to provide all your employees... Obviously, we use so much that it can go fast!
