IS THIS HAND SANITIZER ALL-NATURAL?

We are not currently a USDA certified organic product. That is something we will look into for the future. That being said, we use the highest quality, all natural ingredients whenever possible. All of our inactive ingredients, are sourced with the utmost care for you, our beloved SantOtizerTM users.

WILL OVER-USE OF ALCOHOL-BASED HAND SANITIZER RESULT IN RESISTENCE?

Unlike other antiseptics, antibiotics, and anti-bacterials, there is no reported or likely resistance to alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Indeed, the more it is appropriately used, the less antibiotic-resistant bacteria are able to spread. Visit link of World Health Organization.

GENERAL PRODUCT QUESTIONS

WHAT SHOULD I KEEP IN MIND WHILE USING SANTOTIZER?

It’s for external use only and is Flammable. Keep away from fire or flame. If swallowed, get medical help or contact Poison Control Central immediately. Stop use and consult a doctor if irritation or redness develop. Keep out of eyes, if liquid comes in contact with eyes, rinse thoroughly with water immediately. Do not ingest or inhale. Avoid use on broken skin.

HOW IS YOUR PRODUCT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER HAND SANITIZER CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET?

SantOtizerTM is cost efficient & sustainable solution made 100% in the USA with a much more effective formula. Most hand sanitizers in gel or foam leave hands either too wet, too sticky, or both! Our aqueous formula, made of a blend of high quality ingredients, leaves a fresh yet hydrating feeling in your hands. Our formula evaporates quicker than gel and lasts longer. It’s easy to apply on the hands and it dries fast. No more sticky feeling!

CAN YOUR PRODUCT BE RECYCLED?

Yes! Our bottles are made of plastic which can be recycled under the plastic category #7 and #1 of most curbside recycling programs.

SANTOTIZER FACTS

HOW LONG DOES LIQUID SANITIZER LAST VS GEL SANITIZERS?

Liquid sanitizers have roughly 20 times more applications with the same exact volume as gel sanitizers. Additionally, gel sanitizers take 20-30 seconds to fully dry and leave behind a sticky residue. While liquid base sanitizers only take 10-15 second to fully flash off you hands, leaving behind no sticky residue and softer hands.

HOW MANY FRAGRENCES CAN I CHOOSE BETWEEN

SantOtizerTM comes in 3 forms: SantOtizerTM Fresh (linen scented), SantOtizerTM Citrus (lemon scented) and SantOtizerTM Strong (unscented). All fragrances use our Strong formulation and have 80% Ethyl alcohol, but the difference in smell helps fit everyone’s personal taste.

CAN I RETURN A USED SANTOTIZER PRODUCT?

Due  to the high risk of cross-contamination, we are unable to accept returns of any hand sanitizer product due to FDA guidelines.

HAND HYGIENE

IS IT BETTER TO CLEAN YOUR HANDS USING PLAIN SOAP AND WATER?

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION recommends to clean your hands by rubbing them with an alcohol-based formulation, like SantOtizerTM formula, as the preferred mean for routine hygienic hand antiseptics if hands are not visibly soiled. It is faster, more effective, and better tolerated by your hands than washing with soap and water. Check link of World health organization report.
Although, hand sanitizers are not as effective when hands are visibly dirty or greasy, in that case hand washing with water & soap would be a better solution. Also check cdc recommendations.

CAN I USE SANTOTIZER MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY?

Sure, use as often as needed, especially at key moments, such as before eating, after using the restroom and after touching objects that are frequently touched by others (doors, knobs, desk, railings etc).

WHEN SHOULD I SANITIZE MY HANDS?

  • Before, during, and after preparing food
  • Before eating food
  • Before and after caring for someone who is sick
