Are Sanitizers Are Really Good for Use?

In fact definitely not,

Use of hand sanitizers Hand sanitizers was actually invented by those who work in the Medical field. In the hospitals, it’s vital to keep hands free of bacteria and viruses to avoid spreading them from patient to patients. Soaps and water flush germs from the skin. Hand sanitizers, on the other hand, work by sitting on the skin and killing germs on contact. They only work, however, if they have enough alcohol.

What’s wrong with Hand Sanitizers?

Dry Skin: The alcohol used in sanitizer include Iso-Propylene, ethanol, and n-propylene. These r the drying alcohols. They irritate the skin, strip away its natural oils and acid mantle, dehydrate cells, and increase the risk of contact dermatitis.

Accelerate Cell aging: All those drying effects lead to increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as, cracks and flakiness. It also disturbs the natural barrier function, reducing skin ability to protect itself.

Antibiotic Resistance: Many sanitizers these days made up of Triclosan. This antibacterial has been found in animal studies to disrupt Hormone function. The CDC announced in 2013 use of these antibacterials was a serious threat to human health,& had caused at least 23000 death that year. Unknown chemicals: Hand sanitizers are made with chemical fragrances. Since manufacturers are not required to list fragrance ingredients on the label. Many fragrances are irritating and have been linked to allergies and hormones disruption.

Weakened Immune System: We think we r reducing our risk of getting sick when we use hand sanitizers. But they actually weaken the immune system. Studies show that ultra clean environment particularly early in life can contribute to reduced immune defenses later on.


Please, friends, avoid using sanitizers in the home and for newborn babies and kids. It will destroy their own immune system.
