Using the correct hand sanitiser

Using the correct hand sanitiser

With the current run on hand sanitisers, and the fear over transmission of the corona virus, it is important to know you can get a product and get a product that works.

There are 2 questions you need to ask. Is the antimicrobial agent designed to kill corona virus is it strong enough to do so? You will often read labels saying things like "kills 99.9% of germs". There are many different types of 'germs' including moulds, bacteria and viruses and all have different susceptibility to different germicidal agents. An anti-bacterial agent may not be any good for viruses such as corona virus.

To effectively remove corona virus, the CDC is recommending hand sanitiser containing at lease 60% ethanol. The World Health Organisation recommends an 80% ethanol hand sanitiser to eradicate a wider range of organisms.

At BCP we have formulated an 80% ethanol hand sanitiser which will be effective against a wide range of viruses including corona virus as well as bacteria.

To ensure the skin doesn't dry out, our pharmacists have formulated our hand sanitiser using high levels of natural moisturising and emollient agents.

BCP hand sanitiser is medical strength and pharmacist formulated.

It definitely is a historic time. With all the fear and uncertainty in the world at the moment, we are experiencing things not seen since the mid 20th Century. Shortages on basic manufactured necessities such as toilet paper, foodstuffs and even medicines.

Pharmacists have the skills and expertise to prepare medicines themselves and have done so for hundreds of years. A modern compounding pharmacist has the equipment, resources and access to a wide range of raw materials to make replacement products in many situations. Should you be unable to find a medicine for yourself or your family, speak to your Border Compounding pharmacist immediately.
