Is PlaneAire® Hands hand sanitizer effective against COVID-19?2021-01-19T15:17:42-08:00

The best way to prevent the spread of infections and decrease the risk of getting sick is by washing your hands with plain soap and water, advises the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is essential, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing one’s nose. If soap and water are not available, CDC recommends consumers use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. PlaneAire Hands contains 70% alcohol.

Do alcohol-based hand sanitizers kill the good microbiome (germs that live naturally in skin) on my hands as well as the bad germs which cause diseases?2020-10-29T19:47:28-07:00

No. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers kill the “bad germs” that you stick to your skin from surfaces that you touch every day. These germs are the superficial skin layer and are easily killed by the alcohol in PlaneAire® Hands . Rest assured, there are minimal changes in the good microbiome which keeps your skin heathy because the good germs live within the deeper layers of the skin and in pores, skin creases, sweat glands, and hair follicles, where an alcohol-based hand sanitizer usually does not penetrate.

Does using PlaneAire® Hands frequently encourage resistant germs?2020-11-03T06:43:36-08:00

No. There is no evidence that germs adapt or become resistant to PlaneAire® Hands. Alcohol has traditionally been used by healthcare professionals to eliminate germs (microbes). The antimicrobial activity of alcohols is a result of tearing open microbial cell walls and denaturing and coagulating cellular proteins. Since almost all germs are killed immediately and alcohol evaporates immediately, PlaneAire® Hands is highly effective and does not allow germs to develop resistance.
