Purell Hand Sanitizer

In this day and age you cannot be too careful in protecting your health. With serious illnesses like the swine flu virus and MRSA, now more than ever, it is imperative that clean hands are a constant part of your personal hygiene. Hand sanitizers can assist in keeping your hands and the hands of those around you clean and sanitized. We know that washing our hands is the most effective way to avoid spreading germs and preventing illnesses but when soap and water are not available, instant hand sanitizers are the perfect alternative. In schools, food service areas and medical facilities, hand sanitizer is a necessary option for clean hands.

Purell sanitizer has been a well-trusted name brand in hand sanitizers since hand sanitizers came onto the public market in 1997. Before then Purell was invented in 1988 to meet the needs of healthcare workers and food service employees. It was a great success then and it still is. As one of the most recognized brands in the world, Purell is the most preferred hand sanitizer for not only healthcare and food service professionals, but also for consumers virtually everywhere.

What is Purell Hand Sanitizer made of?

Not all instant hand sanitizers are the same. Formulation of hand sanitizer products matter in effectiveness. Purell is an instant hand sanitizer made of 70% ethyl alcohol. Hand sanitizers under 60% of alcohol will not be effective enough. This active ingredient of ethyl alcohol is said to kill 99.99% of common germs that may cause illness in only 15 seconds. Purell also contains plant-derived glycerin and contains no animal products or animal by-products. Inactive ingredients found in Purell Hand Sanitizer are as follows: water, isopropyl alcohol, glycerin, carbomer, fragrance, aminomethyl propanol, propylene glycol, isopropyl myristate, tocopheryl acetate. Purell is not tested on animals.

Is Purell Hand Sanitizer safe? Is Purell safe during pregnancy? Can my child use Purell?

Yes, hand sanitizer is safe to use as directed. Hand hygiene is a very important healthy behavior that should be practiced regularly. There are many times throughout the day that is critical to have clean hands such as “before eating, after using the restroom and after touching objects that are frequently touched by others,” suggests Purell.

Wondering if hand sanitizer is safe for use during pregnancy? FitPregnancy.com says yes, it is safe.   “Ethyl alcohol-based hand sanitizers are a great option for those times when you can't get to a sink. ‘They protect users from most of the communicable infections,’ says Anjan Chaudhury, M.D., an OB-GYN at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Boston,” as reported on Fit Pregnancy’s website.

Purell is safe for use by children. It is recommended that children under the age of 6 be supervised by an adult when using any Purell product. Since it contains alcohol, make sure the product is fully dried before allowing child to place hands in the mouth or rub the eyes.

Do hand sanitizers create superbugs?

No, this is a myth. Hand sanitizers cannot breed superbugs. According to the CDC.gov, alcohol-based hand sanitizers, such as Purell, do not cause antibiotic resistance no matter what you heard. “The antimicrobial activity of alcohols can be attributed to their ability to denature proteins. They kill germs quickly and in a different way than antibiotics. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers containing at least 60%-95% alcohol are most effective at denaturing proteins. There is no chance for the germs to adapt or develop resistance,” reports CDC under their Hand Hygiene, Show Me the Science tab on their website.

Who invented Purell Hand Sanitizer?

Purell Hand Sanitizer was invented by Gojo in 1988. It was primarily created to assist healthcare providers and restaurant operators who were searching for ways to stop the spread of germs. It was a great success since it quickly killed 99.99% of common germs on hands without being restricted to a sink. The dispensers could be placed anywhere and it was not only convenient to use, but effective as well. Its popularity grew when those who used it on the job wanted to use it outside of work. In 1997, Purell made its hand sanitizer available to all consumers.

Does Purell Hand Sanitizer work? Is it effective?

Yes and yes, Purell Hand Sanitizer does work and it is effective at reducing infectious germs and killing microorganisms on hands when used as directed. Rub hand sanitizer product onto hands and pay special attention to areas on the hands that are easily missed where germs and bacteria tend to hide such as under fingernails and between fingers. Although, Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer is said to kill common germs in as little as 15 seconds, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends users vigorously rub hands together with the product for about 20 seconds just as you would when washing your hands with soap and water at a sink to ensure full effectiveness.

Does Purell hand sanitizer contain alcohol?

Yes. It contains 70% ethyl alcohol which is a safe and effective antiseptic. According to the FAQ on Purell.com, ethyl alcohol, the active ingredient in Purell, “has been used safely by the public for decades and is one of the safest and most effective antimicrobial ingredients known.” Additionally, “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that the general public use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.” The World Health Organization (WHO) also recommends an alcohol-based hand sanitizer for being safe and effective.

Does Purell hand sanitizer expire?

Yes. Purell’s website states, “GOJO's products are designed and formulated to have a typical shelf life of at least three years from date of manufacture when stored at room temperature. However, based on the available data, some products may be labeled with an expiry date that in some cases can be less than three years. If the product has an expiry date it can be found on the shipping cases and individual packages in the following format: EXP/VAL MM/YYYY. We always recommend using the product by the expiration date. The expiry on our product is based off laboratory testing data and is accurate regardless of when the package went into use. However, if storage conditions fall outside of the recommended storage conditions, shelf life may be diminished.
