Hand Sanitizer Dangers

Alcohol vs. Non-Alcohol Instant Hand Sanitizers

Although instant hand sanitizers help protect you from germs and bacteria that may result in illness, it is important to understand the potential hand sanitizer dangers. Considering the many potential dangers and risks associated with alcohol hand sanitizers, making the switch to an alcohol-free hand sanitizer like 4 Hour Protection™ can help promote the health and safety of both you and your family. Here, you will discover the dangers of alcohol vs. non-alcohol hand sanitizers.

Alcohol Hand Sanitizers and Accidental Poisoning

One of the greatest hand sanitizer dangers is accidental poisoning, which is especially dangerous for young children. Even in small doses, the ingestion of an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, which may contain up to 70% ethyl or isopropyl alcohol, can cause dizziness, slurred speech, headaches and even brain damage or fatalities in extreme cases. Call a poison control center immediately if your child ingests any amount of alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizers and Fire

High alcoholic content poses a number of additional potential hand sanitizer dangers, including the risk of fire, which can result in personal injury or property damage. Always keep alcohol-based hand sanitizers away from open flames and other fire hazard environments including light bulbs, heaters and bright, direct sunlight. In addition, if you use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, make sure your hands are completely dry before approaching any heat source when cooking or grilling.

Additional Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizer Dangers

An often-overlooked hand sanitizer danger is skin dryness, which can cause broken skin and exposure to contagions. An alcohol-free hand sanitizer like 4 Hour Protection™, however, formulated with moisturizing agents designed to soften and soothe the skin, will not create dryness.
