As a mom of 2 young ones, I've always been concerned about the Alcohol-based handsanitizers mainly because I'm cautious of having "Alcohol" on the skin. Some of you may not be aware for the danger of these hand sanitizers.
As we all know, about everything goes from hand to mouth when it comes to kids. Note the amount (about 62%) percent ethyl alcohol in each bottle. That is also known as ethanol. It is also the same stuff in wine and beer.
The New England Journal of Medicine first warned of cases of people ingesting hand sanitizer a few months ago. Now according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, the country's 61 poison centers are getting more calls about it. There were nearly 12,000 cases last year, up from 2005. Already, this year, there have been about 6,600 cases.
I received my bottle of Prefense Alcohol-free Hand sanitizer and I'm really loving it. It's safe to use for both adults and children (non-toxic, non-flammable). It doesn't contain any animal ingredient. and also doen't dry out the skin. I'm very comfortable with this product. One of the things that stands out about Prefense compared to other Alcohol-free hand sanitizers is that one application lasts 24 hrs or 10 hand washings!
