I’m a Cleveland guy, born and raised with Purell in my blood. I have used Purell for years. But finally my last winter in Cleveland did me in. My hands were cracked, dry and chapped and I put some of this hand sanitizer on my hands and almost went thru the roof. It was the most painful experience I have had since I broke my leg.
I looked for an alternative to Purell online and found a product called Safe Hands. Safe Hands is alcohol free hand sanitizer that is made out of approved benzalkonium chloride. I bought a couple of bottles online and tried it out. I was happy that this hand sanitizer did not burn my hands like alcohol. It actually felt good, soothed my skin and didn’t dry out my hands.

If you have ever used alcohol hand sanitizers you know that they also have a very strong odor. They make your hands feel really cool or burn for a minute and then wear off. With the alternative I used, Safe Hands, it did not smell at all. Now I know they have different scents online but the one that I bought online was fragrance free.
I’m happy to say that they can be found in Walgreens across the country… that is almost 6000 locations in the US where we can now purchase SafeHands hand sanitizer.
Because it is non-toxic and non-flammable, I give it to my son to take to school when his teacher asks for sanitizer on the back-to-school list. With all the news about fires, poisonings and pranks with alcohol based hand sanitizer, I’m surprised more schools and teachers don’t ask for it on their supply lists.
