Sani-Foam is a unique, skin-conditioning, non-alcohol hand sanitizer based on the active ingredient Benzalkonium Chloride. Sani-Foam kills germs, bacteria and reduces S.aureus MRSA in as little as 15 seconds. Sani-Foam has distinct advantages over gelled alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Unlike the alcohol hand sanitizers, Sani-Foam is not flammable, will not stain clothing and is less drying to the skin. Published studies report that gelled, alcohol-based hand sanitizers actually make the skin dirtier, not cleaner, due to the removal of the protective layer of natural skin oils and the subsequent entrapment of dead skin cells by the thickeners used in alcohol-based sanitizers. Sani-Foam has exceptional skin feel, moisturizing and conditioning properties and does not leave the hands feeling sticky, nor does it contain polymer thickeners or silicones to alter the feel. Hand sanitizers should never be used as a substitute for proper hand washing and hygiene practices.
