There is a clear difference between washing hands and disinfection. Hand washing contains soap and water and is required when there is physical dirt on hands. However, regular soaps do not contain antimicrobial ingredients, which protect against infection and remove micro-organisms. Furthermore, disease pathogens are distributed during washing of the hands, but not completely removed. When using antibacterial soaps, the time of usage has to be far more longer to remove the microbes.
Also, attention needs to be paid to publicly used towels and wash basins – being in contact with them after washing your hands, you can easily re-cover your hands with bacteria.
Hand sanitizers were developed to use them after washing your hands or in cases when soap and water are not available. Only disinfection is capable of reducing microbes rapidly enough so that they are no longer transmitted.
Alcohol containing products are based on ethanol. However, many sanitizers are based on isopropyl alcohol.
Comparing the two active ingredient to each other, we see that the efficiency of isopropanol is lower. In particular, it does not affect the spread of enteroviruses. Isopropanol is hundreds of times more toxic than ethanol. When 200 to 250 ml of isopropyl alcohol gets into the gastrointestinal tract, as a result, it can cause a suppression in the central nervous system, and myocardial function.

Sanitelle products can be used anytime and anywhere.
Compared to other antiseptics, ethyl alcohol as an active ingredient is the safest, fastest and most efficient.
Sanitelle saves time. Studies have shown that the use of Sanitelle takes 15-20 seconds and it is much more effective than 1-2 minutes of thorough hand washing with soap and water.
In addition, it eliminates the risk of contamination of hands that may be caused by publicly used towels and wash basins – being in contact with them after washing your hands, you can easily re-cover your hands with bacteria.
