Absolutely! Washing your hands is crucial for maintaining good health. Cleansing with soap and water for 20 seconds is the best way to remove germs and chemicals from your hands. Apply Germ Ready afterward to kill remaining germs and provide long-lasting protection, especially after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.

When possible, wash your hands when visibly dirty and in the following circumstances:

  • Eating
  • Preparing food
  • Caring for someone who is sick
  • Picking up pet waste
  • Taking out the garbage
  • Going to the bathroom
  • Changing diapers

The active ingredient in Germ Ready hand sanitizer is benzalkonium chloride. This quaternary ammonium compound is in many disinfecting wipes and soaps. We also include a plant-derived moisturizer called saccharide isomerate to ensure your skin stays soft when using our product. This ingredient binds to your skin, providing long-lasting hydration in addition to the extended germ-killing properties of BZK's antimicrobial salts. We use 4-hydroxyphenylglycine and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose as safe stabilizing ingredients. Many food products use these elements, too.

BZK is an organic salt compound that has been used since the early 20th century in products such as disinfecting surface wipes, soaps and skin disinfectants, and mouthwashes.

BZK is the only compound other than ethanol and isopropanol alcohol eligible to be an active ingredient in hand sanitizer. With the highest concentration of BZK on the market, Germ Ready is effective against germs and is safe to be used on skin. We added a moisturizing ingredient that keeps skin soft and damage-free while disinfecting.  With Germ Ready, you know you are using an effective nontoxic disinfectant that is alcohol-free, fragrance-free, dye-free, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.

Germ Ready Offers a Safe Alternative

Benzalkonium chloride is the active ingredient in Germ Ready foaming hand sanitizer. This organic salt compound is an effective and safe disinfecting alternative to isopropyl alcohol and ethanol for soaps, skin disinfectants, mouthwashes, and sanitizing surface wipes. Our hand sanitizer contains the highest concentration of BZK on the market, making it effective in the fight against germs.
