Hand Sanitizer for Sale From Quill
While hand sanitizers may have their genesis with healthcare professionals and restaurant workers who needed to prevent the spread of contaminants when they didn’t have immediate access to soap and water, sanitizers are now available in both business establishments and public areas. Scientific evidence shows not only that they kill bacterial germs on contact, but also that they’re a preventive measure against influenza germs. They’re also a good way to maintain safe hygiene practices, whether before every meal or snack, or when you’ve been around objects that many other people have touched, like stair handrails, retail surfaces and shopping carts.
Hand Sanitizer Types
Wholesale hand sanitizer comes in three different types:
- Gel: This hand sanitizer is a thick liquid that users spread over hands like lotion until it is absorbed.
- Foam: This option starts out liquid and becomes frothy when dispensed. It can also be used like a lotion. Gel and foam options air-dry and don’t require towels.
- Sanitizing wipes: Offers germ-killing ingredients on a towelette. Users rub the wipe over their hands to spread the ingredients, which then air-dry. Employees can clean up without the use of soap, water or paper towels.
Benefits of Hand Sanitizer
While hand soap and water are an excellent way to practice good hand hygiene, washing your hands many times a day may deplete your skin of the natural oils it needs to remain healthy. The hand sanitizer formulas available come with a variety of skin emollients, conditioners or moisturizers that not only maintain but also boost hand health, so they’re safe to use throughout the day. Two common sanitizer ingredients for nourishing the hands include aloe vera, a natural emollient that retains natural skin oils, and vitamin E, a moisturizer that absorbs into the skin.
Beyond the hand-conditioning elements of sanitizer formulas, users may find the many fragrances of sanitizers appealing, or prefer unscented versions. Among the most popular scents is lemon, which also serves as a conditioner. Other citrus aromatics are popular as well. Many gels, foams and wipes are scent-free for those who prefer minimal ingredients in the products they use.
What Sizes of Hand Sanitizer Are Available?
Bulk Hand Sanitizer
Bulk hand sanitizer comes in containers similar to soap dispensers and are designed for easy use. Bulk amounts of sanitizer refills allow employers to provide germ-killing power to a large group of employees. Gel and foam often come in liter bottles, while wipes come in large canisters containing 100 or more. It is also possible to purchase mini hand sanitizers in bulk, each unit containing enough for individual use. These are easy to toss into bags or pockets so that employees can sanitize their hands between washes.
Single Pump Bottle of Hand Sanitizer
Quill offers hand sanitizer pump bottles in 8-ounce, 12-ounce. and 16-ounce options. These are good for personal use at home, in the car or at work. Keep a bottle available for use around the house on a table or desk.
Single-Use Hand Sanitizer
You can purchase a box, container or case of hand sanitizing wipes, available for single-use. These hand wipes are a great way to clean your hands and disinfect germs.
Hand Sanitizer Dispenser
Dispensers are great for providing just the right amount of gel, foam or spray for sanitizing hands. There are touch-free and push- or pump-style activated dispensers, including slim-profile models to fit into tight spaces. Use free-standing gel hand-sanitizer stations for the high-traffic public, retail and commercial areas, with a built-in shield to prevent spills. There are dispensers for elementary schools as well, which dispense a lower volume of gel or foam for smaller hands.
Why is Hand Sanitizer Important?
Like bathroom cleaning chemicals and other germ-killing products, hand sanitizers all contain similar ingredients, which differ only slightly by brand. Common ingredients include alcohol (ethyl or isopropyl) to kill germs and benzalkonium chloride or triclosan for non-alcohol germ-fighting.
Hand sanitizers and their germ-killing properties are essential to reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses in an area, especially high-traffic areas.
