Alcohol vs non-alcohol

Alcohol is what is called a flash sanitising product and works against germs when wet (which is within 15 seconds) as soon as it dries out it stops working. It has no residual germ-killing effect and once the alcohol has evaporated, the germ-killing action stops. It is extremely effective for flash/immediate disinfection. Repeated and regular disinfection is required.

Extended use of alcohol sanitisers and extensive washing of the hands has been shown to lead to Irritable Contact Dermatitis (ICD). 85 per cent of health care workers suffer from some form of ICD. As a result, up to 80 per cent of health care workers in some settings do not apply a sanitiser as often as required by Infection Control. The British Medical Journal (BMJ) recommends the use of skin cleansers that do not de-fat skin or contain harsh abrasives. Most alcohol gels have at least 60 per cent alcohol content and will de-fat skin with every use. ICD is now recognised as an occupational hazard for healthcare workers.

"Hand sanitisation is so important but can dry skin out. It's really helpful to have options that are effective but alcohol-free," said Dr Sarah Jarvis.
