Hand sanitiser

 

Germ-Block is more than just a hand sanitiser. It is a revolutionary protection technology, that remains active on your skin for 24 hours and lasts through 10 handwashes – from just one application.

Suitable for all the family, (and all skin types, including sensitive) whether at school, play, at work or travelling on public transport, at home and abroad.

The protective barrier that Germ-Block creates prevents your hands from harbouring and transferring germs that can make you sick.

Traditional alcohol hand sanitisers only work while wet on the skin. Once dried they stop working and the germs return. In fact they are no different to washing your hands with hot water and soap. They have no lasting efficacy.

One application of Germ-Block has a germ kill rate of over 99.99% within 60 seconds of application, and lasts for 24 hours, and so delivers the same protection as a traditional alcohol based sanitiser applied every 30 seconds throughout the day.

Germ-Block is effective against MRSA, C.Difficile, Salmonella species, E.Coli, Listeria, Influenza, Norovirus, Coronavirus and many more.

Germ-Block is non-flammable, non-toxic and alcohol-free. It moisturises the skin and prevents drying, redness, and chapping, and it is not harmful to human or animal cells or the environment.

Simple and comfortable to use

Just apply to the hands, massage well between fingers and underneath nails, and leave for a few seconds, until air dried. It forms a microscopic coating on the skin, and becomes substantive to it. You cannot see it or feel it, but you can rest assured it is there.

Once dried on the skin, Germ-Block is non toxic and chemically inert. Safe for handling food, and babies! It will also make the skin feel smoother and softer as it locks in the natural moisturising oils in the skin.

Traditional hand sanitisers are based on old technology, and 99% of them contain highly toxic chemicals, such as benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and alcohol.

The mode of action for these sanitisers is to leach from the skin surface, soak the surrounding area and chemically poison any germs on the skin surface. However, in doing this it also soaks the surrounding environment in toxins, raising concerns for the environment in general and your skin in particular. 

Once the toxic chemicals dry off, the killing action stops and the germs return.  Traditional sanitisers need to be re-applied often for continued treatment, resulting in redness, chapping, soreness and drying of the skin.

 Germ-Block is a safer, smarter, more effective alternative that:

  •  Does not use poisons or toxins.
  •  Does not leach or transfer or absorb.
  •  Does not harm your skin.
  •  Has a physical rather than a chemical mode of action.
  •  Does not harm the environment.
Unique new technology

Germ-Block is a unique new technology that uses a new generation of silicone polymers to enable it to work on the skin, at a molecular level, to prevent and inhibit microbial infestation.

It is very simple and comfortable to use, just apply to the hands, massaging in between fingers and under nails, and leave for a few seconds, until air dried. It forms a microscopic coating on the skin, and becomes substantive to it.

You cannot see it or feel it, but can rest assured it is there. It will remain active, killing pathogens for 24 hours from one application and will not wash off.

Keeps working even after hand-washing

Lab tests prove no reduction in efficacy over 10 hand washes, as Germ-Block attaches to the skin using covalent bonds which are practically unbreakable.

Once dried on the skin, Germ-Block is non toxic and chemically inert. Safe for handling food, and babies, and during pregnancy! It will also make skin feel smoother and softer, as it locks in the skin's natural moisturising oils.

Microbes are killed physically by the polymer’s sharp edged molecular surface composition, which acts like swords that effectively skewer and rupture the microbes' outer cellular wall, killing them on contact. This medical name for this process is lysis.

The active ingredient in Germ-Block is an organosilane quaternary ammonium  compound, which has no side effects, even on the most sensitive of skins.
