Hand Sanitizer: Good or Bad?

While doing some research for a new product that kills 99.99% germs found out that the currently wide-spread hand-sanitizers that we have in the market are very dangerous for the health, please read carefully, do your research and follow the health measures & if you find something worth sharing please share it.

some locally available Hand-Sanitizers (in KSA) - Photograph taken by myself during the research (not targeting the respective makers but the product it self)

Alcohol based hand sanitizers: if you pick any of these sanitizer, you'll surly find good quantity of Alcohol in it, apart from highly flammable (that can put you in trouble) they are quite fatal if inhaled

Kids do stupid things. "Believe it or not, some kids have drunk it,'' which can cause liver damage, said Cynthia Hiltz, health service coordinator for Anoka-Hennepin Schools.

as well as it makes our religious matters quite questionable as per our Sharia even an alcoholic perfume is not very welcomed (you guys must be having far better knowledge then me), Another problem of using Alcoholic sanitizer is that it is actually fatal for your skin:

it is very damaging to the skin, particularly with frequent application. It serves to dry up the natural moisture of the skin, leaving it dry and cracked. Ironically, you are more prone to collecting and spreading germs as a result of the damage from alcohol. What’s more, alcohol evaporates within 5 seconds of application, giving you a false sense of security as you continue to collect and spread germs.

I dont want to sound like a marketing guy, but I thought it is important so I'm sharing this info, it is purely for the sake of health awareness other wise Alcohol free sanitizers are not giving me any commission... ( even thou they should ). Any how, theres a product in the market (dont want to name it) which is Alcohol free, Fragrance free, color free, non-flammable & is 2 in 1 meaning Foaming sanitizer + Lotion. The active ingredient is "Benzalkonium Chloride" which is used in pharmaceuticals, any how NOW you have a little knowledge about the pros and cons, but you should also know that little knowledge is dangerous, so do your research and find better alternatives and share the outcome of that research so we can benefit from it.

-------- (Viral Marketing gurus should skip the part beneath) --------

CONCLUSION: outcome of my research - If you have to select one over other I'll recommend using Alcohol free that comes with lotion, BUT.... the best alternative is to stay away from these products as non of them is 100% healthy. Keep your hands clean even with soap, keep your surrounding clean at least the near once where you touch in your daily routine. I personally use my key (or anything else that I'm holding) to press buttons for elevators, I dont touch the supportive reeling (I dont know what you call that) of escalator, I dont use my hand to open doors or touch knobs, usually I have tissue or else I open them with my elbow or just press it with shoulder... but be careful dont get that much sensitive which make you look like an alien within human beings... good luck and may god give you health. Thanks

Quite inspirational classic TVC

one of my all time favorite classical TVC with the script of commercial.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits.
The rebels.
The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones,
We see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world,
Are the ones who do
