about the carefully selected ingredients...
The ingredients in CleanShot have been specifically chosen and utilized with your ultimate care and safety in mind. Besides 70% alcohol, which is 99.9% effective in killing germs, Cleanshot is made with pure, clean water, glycerin, hydroxyethylcellulose, aminomethyl propanol, and a touch of fragrance.
What is the value of glycerin in a hand sanitizer?
Because alcohol can be drying, a quality moisturizer is paramount for hand sanitizer to work its best. Alcohol disinfectants do not work as well on chapped, dry, cracked skin, and a break in the skin barrier may give germs an opportunity to get in. In addition, people are less likely to clean and disinfect their hands if their skin is irritated. We chose glycerin for CleanShot because it is the ultimate moisturizing ingredient. Not only does it attract water to the outer layer of the skin, it also creates a seal to keep moisture from evaporating from it. This powerhouse moisturizer has a soothing effect on the skin and can be used to prevent dryness, scaliness, and irritation.
What is hydroxyethylcelllulose, and is it safe?
Hydroxyethylcellulose is a completely safe, non-toxic, natural thickening agent derived from pine and spruce trees. It gives CleanShot the perfect consistency for spreading easily to ensure complete coverage of the hands.
Why is aminomethyl propanol added to CleanShot?
The acid mantle of our skin is a very fine, slightly acidic film that acts as a barrier to germs and other environmental elements. If the acid mantle is disrupted and the pH is altered, the skin becomes more vulnerable to damage and infection. If a product that is too acidic is applied to the skin, it can cause pain and irritation. If a product is too alkaline, it can deplete the skin of vital, natural lipids and encourage bacterial growth. Aminomethyl propanol plays a critical role in the pH balance of CleanShot to help maintain the skin’s pH balance.
We always want our products to be easy and pleasant to use. CleanShot Gel™ has a high alcohol content so it can effectively destroy germs, and most people don’t relish the smell of alcohol. That’s why we also have available CleanShot Gel™ with an added light, fresh scent of oranges. You can enjoy the protection of CleanShot every day, all day long.
more clean hands tips from the cdc
If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Why? Many studies have found that sanitizers with an alcohol concentration between 60–95% are more effective at killing germs than those with a lower alcohol concentration or non-alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Hand sanitizers without 60-95% alcohol 1) may not work equally well for many types of germs; and 2) merely reduce the growth of germs rather than kill them outright.
When using hand sanitizer, apply the product to the palm of one hand (read the label to learn the correct amount) and rub the product all over the surfaces of your hands until your hands are dry.
Why? The steps for hand sanitizer use are based on a simplified procedure recommended by CDC. Instructing people to cover all surfaces of both hands with hand sanitizer has been found to provide similar disinfection effectiveness as providing detailed steps for rubbing-in hand sanitizer.
Swallowing alcohol-based hand sanitizers can cause alcohol poisoning.
Why? Ethyl alcohol (ethanol)-based hand sanitizers are safe when used as directed, but they can cause alcohol poisoning if a person swallows more than a couple of mouthfuls.
From 2011 – 2015, U.S. poison control centers received nearly 85,000 calls about hand sanitizer exposures among children. Children may be particularly likely to swallow hand sanitizers that are scented, brightly colored, or attractively packaged. Hand sanitizers should be stored out of the reach of young children and should be used with adult supervision. Child-resistant caps could also help reduce hand sanitizer-related poisonings among young children. Older children and adults might purposefully swallow hand sanitizers to become drunk.
