Global Future Solutions launches Nanotechnology based Alcohol-Free Hand Sanitizer

Brisbane, Australia | Posted on December 20th, 2010

In today's world, we are surrounded by a multitude of bacteria, germs, and viruses, as well as stories of new strains of those viruses, leading to serious illnesses and, in some cases, even death. In response, we seek convenient and more effective ways to protect ourselves and our patients. At the same time, research has discovered that the products we know so well and trusted in for so long are not nearly as effective as once believed to be.

For the past few years, use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers as Purell, Dettol and Aquim to name a few have misled the consumer to the effectiveness of their products. However, not only are alcohol-based hand sanitizers a less effective alternative for sanitizing germs, but they cause various other problems. Because alcohol removes the skin's natural oils, which is one of our bodies' natural defenses against bacteria, repeated use of alcohol can actually increases skin bacteria hours later.

Further, alcohol-based hand sanitizers only kill germs for up to 10 seconds until it has evaporated, leaving the user susceptible to the inadvertent spreading of germs not long after application. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are also extremely flammable and have harmful side effects after repeated usage which include dry, cracked hands and painful irritation.

Global Future Solutions has recently introduced a new Alcohol Free based Hand Sanitizer product line for Institutional and Community Health and Hospital grade environments. The GFS BioProtect alcohol-free gel hand sanitizer, has proven to be more effective against a broad range of bacteria and viruses, with less harmful side-effects than alcohol-based brands. It is being used in Disaster Recovery areas as Haiti, PNG and Pakistan to help inhibit further germ and virus pandemics. Additionaly, it has been approved to receive the Good Environmental Choice Australia Ltd mark to be used on its product line.

Other AntiMicrobial and Biocide products in the GFS BioProtect "Green" Chemistry product line include solutions for Wastewater Treatment, Oil Spill Remediation and TGA Approved Hospital Grade Sanitizer, and Biodegradable, non-corrosive Industrial Cleaners.
