For many decades, hand sanitizers were considered effective disinfectant products because they contained alcohol in concentrations exceeding the FDA required minimum dosage of 60%. The principle alcohol used in hand sanitizers is ethanol denatured with isopropyl alcohol and is under the jurisdiction of the ATF.

However, as new antibiotic resistant bacteria have evolved and complicated our lives, the various federal agencies responsible for testing and regulating hand sanitizer formulations are struggling to advise the public which ones are most effective. The initial regulations on skin disinfecting ingredients, their safety and use were first published in the 1994 FDA tentative monograph, wherein ethyl and isopropyl alcohol topped the list as possessing the broadest disinfection capability.

HandiGuard was developed and tested and certified by a third party FDA-approved laboratory and is hereby being made available to the discriminating consumer who truly cares about disease protection. Handiguard is a product that will leave your hands feeling moisturized without any sticky build-up.  It is a product that you will truly like once you try it.  

The following is a listing of the most commonly asked questions with both technical and layman answers.

Q - Why is HandiGuard different from other alcohol based sanitizers?

Tech Answer - HandiGuard has the unique ability to destroy more germs and disable more viruses before they can cause an infection. HandiGuard provides much longer alcoholic denaturing contact time on germs and viruses, thus making it more effective than current products on the market.  It also continues acting as a skin moisturizer.  Most importantly, it does not build up after many applications and will therefore not require the frequency of additional hand washing as compared to the competition.

Layman Answer - HandiGuard extends the sanitizing time by reducing the evaporation time of the alcohol and further turns into a protective moisturizer on the skin that dissipates naturally and will not build up after many uses.


Q - Does HandiGuard dry the skin like other sanitizers and how does it retain the skin moisture?

Tech Answer - No! Current alcoholic sanitizers all claim to reduce drying the skin with their built-in moisturizing ingredients.  These moisturizing ingredients are actually the source of drying the skin after the alcohol has evaporated because they will absorb and pull out the natural skin moisture until the body restores its natural dermal lipids.  HandiGuard delivers a temporary shield that keeps the alcohol in contact with the germs and viruses longer for maximum disinfection and further remains as a temporary topical protective shield, keeping the natural moisture in the skin from escaping.

Layman Answer – HandiGuard does not absorb or pull out the natural skin moisture; it helps the skin to retain it.

Q - What make HandiGuard longer lasting than competitive sanitizers?

Tech Answer - HandiGuard also contains other active ingredients approved by the FDA that remain within the temporary protective shield after the alcohol completely evaporates.  The protective shield provides hours of additional skin protection from new invading germs that may come in contact with the skin after application.  The temporary shield will not allow germs to pass through it unlike the current competitive sanitizers whose moisturizing residue does not contain long-term sanitizing protection.

Layman Answer – HandiGuard provides an ongoing protective shield on the skin and continues to fight against germs for hours.

Q - What make HandiGuard more effective in killing germs that hide in the small cracks and pores of the skin?

Tech Answer - HandiGuard also contains several surface active agents that reduces the surface tension of the product which allows it to more effectively flow into the skin surface structure consisting of many small cracks that current sanitizers are incapable of reaching.  Most microorganisms and viruses usually are found in these small cracks in the skin and are not usually nor easily removed even through vigorous hand washing.  Hand washing only removes some and not all germs and does not kill them.  Therefore, even hand washing with a detergent is not as effective as originally thought.  Conventional hand sanitizers are even less effective because of the surface tension phenomenon that they cannot overcome and therefore have poor penetration into the topical skin structure (epidermis).

Layman Answer – HandiGuard has a superior ability to flow into small skin cracks thereby killing more germs than foams and gels.


Q - What makes HandiGuard’s unique ingredients create a longer lasting germ protective shield?

Tech Answer - HandiGuard also contains other active ingredients approved by the FDA and CDC that remain within the temporary protective shield matrix that not only slows the evaporation rate of the primary alcohol carrier (solvent), but also provides residual sanitizing protection.  A unique comparison can be made to demonstrate how lacquer works when it is coated onto a wood surface.  After a short time, the surface of the lacquer application onto the wood becomes dry to the touch because only the solvent from the surface has evaporated; however, the remaining solvent in the lacquer resin underneath will take longer to evaporate through the surface which is termed curing.  Similarly, this is exactly what happens with the temporary protective shield created by the Drysil (resin) ingredient in Handiguard…slowing down the alcoholic evaporation and producing a longer antimicrobial contact time with the skin structure underneath until the alcohol completely evaporates.  Wherein the active antimicrobial ingredients, which are integral in the protective shield matrix, provides continued skin protection for a longer time. The comparison to lacquer was only made to describe its similarity to the temporary protective shield that is created with HandiGuard. However, lacquer once cured is a permanent shield over a surface, whereas HandiGuard is a temporary protective shield that dissipates over time from the epidermis.

Layman Answer – The HandiGuard protective shield is temporary and contains longer-term germ-fighting ingredients after the alcohol evaporates.
