An Alternative to the Dangers of Alcohol Hand Santitizers with Teens

Share Article

The Los Angeles Times reports that many teenagers have found a new way to get drunk: by ingesting alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers typically contain at least 62% ethyl alcohol, which is strong enough to get teens far more intoxicated than taking a shot of vodka would. An alternative hand sanitizer, fiteBac SkinCare Germicidal Hand Softening Gel, is an alcohol-free alternative safe to have around teens.

Alcohol Free Hand Sanitizers

fiteBac (hand sanitizer) is not only alcohol free, but petroleum free, fragrance free and cost effective, and we now realize it is teen cocktail free

The potential drinking trend of alcohol sanitizers is insidious because of the easy availability to purchase: teenagers can waltz into any neighborhood pharmacy and buy a liquid hand sanitizer without raising any eyebrows. Instructions to distill the cocktail are easily available online, making it all too convenient for teens. This practice is very dangerous and it has been widely reported that numerous hospitalizations, some resulting in death, have occurred. Proactive parents need supply teens with an alternative to lessen the exposure.

For those parents and communities who do not want to lose the benefits of hand sanitizers but who also want to decrease the accessibility of alcohol, fiteBac SkinCare offers is an alternative for reasons beyond teen safety: its hand sanitizer cleans hands without the harshness of drying alcohol. “fiteBac's unique formula does the job of killing germs, while helping to soothe and keep skin soft,” says Kirk Kimmerling CEO. “Our product is not only alcohol free, but petroleum free, fragrance free and cost effective, and we now realize it is teen cocktail free.”

fiteBac Germicidal has other highly beneficial reasons to use it as an alternative. There is no dried-out skin, no itchy hands, and no harshness from strong ethyl alcohol. In fact, because fiteBac is alcohol free, it actually moisturizes hands even while it cleans. It is highly rated by hand hygiene experts and evaluators giving the product a favorable future. And now, given the recent surge in teenagers misusing alcohol-based products, fiteBac's alcohol-free solutions will be even more helpful to families, schools, and communities. It is the hand sanitizer expected to dominate the future of the clean hands industry.
