Skin Guard Hand Sanitizer is a specially formulated product containing the antimicrobial active ingredient, Organosilane-Q. This active ingredient is unlike any product for topical skin application on the market today. On application to the hands, an antimicrobial, polymeric film is formed which is substantive and will remain through a minimum of ten hand washings. The Organosilane-Q film formed on application retains its broad spectrum antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal activity for up to 24 hours or more. It derives its antimicrobial activity through contact with the pathogen and causing disruption of the pathogens cellular wall, a process termed lysis.
