Company: Global BioProtect LLC

Sanitation SnapshotGlobal BioProtect LLC, a manufacturer and supplier of environmentally-friendly cleaning products for commercial use, has announced the addition of a new, patented hand sanitizer that comes in a 100 percent recyclable, air-powered can, providing four times the applications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved hand sanitizer kills 99.99 percent of harmful germs and is available in non-alcohol and alcohol formulas. In July, Global BioProtect will introduce a customizable option for companies to brand the BioProtect hand sanitizer.

Manufactured in the United States, BioProtect hand sanitizer eliminates 45 bacteria, fungi and viruses, including germs that cause pneumonia, staph infections, colds and the flu, through the use of a patented antibacterial technology. It comes in a 100 percent recyclable, air-powered can that uses compressed air instead of chemicals to disperse the hand sanitizer. Utilizing bag-on-valve technology, the packaging is effective and precise, allowing for more than 1,000 sprays vs. 250 pump applications for an 8-ounce bottle. It lasts twice as long as traditional hand sanitizer packaging and has an extended shelf life, meaning customers won’t need to buy as much. When turned upside down, the can doesn’t spill, making it easy to transport.

“The pandemic has had a huge impact on businesses, ranging from restaurants to manufacturing facilities,” said Gary Willett, president, Global BioProtect LLC. “We’re happy to be able to adapt quickly and provide a much-needed, safe and effective product to protect our customers’ employees and consumers. Our new hand sanitizer line extends the sustainable products from BioProtect that are available to a wide range of industries. The bag-on-valve can offers more value for the money and a packaging option that can be 100 percent recycled, allowing for companies to reduce the amount of trash thrown away.”

Enriched with aloe vera and a fresh citrus scent, the non-alcohol, water-based formula hydrates the skin, preventing dryness and cracks. As alcohol hand sanitizers can be highly flammable and pose a risk of being ingested, BioProtect non-alcohol hand sanitizer can be a safer option in settings where children are present. Benzalkonium chloride is the active ingredient, which is FDA approved for use in hand sanitizers. For industries that require an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, BioProtect offers an alcohol formula that dries quickly, leaving no sticky residue and includes glycerin to moisturize skin. The alcohol formula contains isopropyl alcohol 75 percent, exceeding the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations. The availability of non-alcohol and alcohol formulas provide numerous industries, including, but not excluded to, food service, manufacturing, education and retail, with an environmentally-friendly option that also provides value.  

When the white label product is introduced in July, it will offer a seamless option for companies, as Global BioProtect will handle the design and FDA process. Companies will be able to brand the hand sanitizer with their logo for use in-house or to sell to customers.

BioProtect non-alcohol hand sanitizer is also available in a liquid formula in 32-ounce, 64-ounce and 128-ounce refill bottles.
