At high concentrations, alcohol-based sanitisers are effective against germs. Because they are widely available, they are perhaps perceived as most effective. However, there are numerous sanitisers that have active ingredients that are equally as effective, if used as instructed, to disable pathogens such as viruses, and kill bacteria.
A consequence of frequent use of alcohol-based sanitiser on hands may be dry or irritated skin. Generally, this irritation is not serious and can be cleared up or avoided with the associated use of moisturisers.
The #BYOBclean hand sanitiser is not alcohol-based, which means it is non-toxic and less likely to dry or irritate skin since it is more gentle on the skin. It is also non-flammable, making it safer to store, especially in larger concentrations, which makes it more ideal for places like kitchens, multipurpose households or workplaces.
BKC at a minimum concentration of 0.05% in cleaning products is recognised by the National Environment Agency of Singapore and the European Centre of Disease Prevention and Control to be effective against coronaviruses.
