Unveiling the Secret to Everest's 24 Hour Defense™ Foaming Hand Purifier

Everest's 24 Hour Defense™ Foaming Hand Purifier has taken the world of hand hygiene by storm, and for good reason. This innovative product relies on benzalkonium chloride (BZK) instead of alcohol to eliminate germs, providing users with all-day protection after just one application. In this article, we delve into the science behind this breakthrough formula, and why it's rapidly becoming the go-to hand sanitizer for those in search of an effective and gentle solution.

A Powerful Alternative: BZK vs. Alcohol

Traditional alcohol-based hand sanitizers are known for their ability to kill germs rapidly, but they also have their drawbacks. Alcohol can be harsh on the skin, causing dryness and irritation, and its effects are short-lived, requiring frequent reapplication.

Enter BZK, a quaternary ammonium compound that works as an effective antimicrobial agent. BZK-based hand sanitizers, like Everest's 24 Hour Defense™, offer a powerful and long-lasting alternative to alcohol-based products. According to a study by The Lancet, benzalkonium chloride showed similar efficacy to alcohol-based sanitizers, with a reduction of 99.97% of bacterial counts within 30 seconds (source:

In addition to its germ-killing prowess, BZK has the advantage of being gentler on the skin, making it an ideal choice for those with sensitive skin or who need to sanitize their hands frequently.

Skin-Friendly Ingredients: Glycerin and Aloe Vera

To further enhance the skin-friendly nature of Everest's 24 Hour Defense™ Foaming Hand Purifier, the formula is infused with glycerin and aloe vera. Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it helps retain moisture in the skin, while aloe vera is known for its soothing and moisturizing properties.

These ingredients work together to counteract the drying effects often associated with hand sanitizers, keeping hands soft, smooth, and moisturized even with regular use.

If you're looking for additional skin-friendly products, consider trying a gentle hand soap like Dove Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar or an sanitizing hand lotion like DuraShield Hand Sanitizing Lotion.

All-Day Protection: The Long-Lasting Advantage

One of the standout features of Everest's 24 Hour Defense™ Foaming Hand Purifier is its ability to provide protection for up to 24 hours after a single use. This extended protection is possible thanks to the unique formula that creates a barrier on the skin, preventing germs from taking hold and multiplying.

In an era where hand hygiene is more crucial than ever, this long-lasting protection offers users peace of mind and convenience. For additional all-day protection, consider using antimicrobial products like GloveUp™ antimicrobial gloves sold on Everest's online store.

Redefining Hand Hygiene Standards

In conclusion, Everest's 24 Hour Defense™ Foaming Hand Purifier is revolutionizing the world of hand hygiene with its BZK-based, alcohol-free, and skin-friendly formula. Its ability to provide long-lasting protection makes it an essential addition to any hand hygiene routine, whether at home, work, or on-the-go.
