Non-Alcohol Sanitiser with Benzalkonium Chloride

1st Guard's Non-Alcohol was developed due to the long-term effect of using Alcohol based sanitiser and the want for a gentler treatment for the hands. Our search for a better option led us to developing our own formulation that contains no artificial fragrances, colours, thickeners, formaldehyde releasing ingredients, won't stain clothes and doesn't leave a greasy film. 

For those looking a sanitiser hard on germs and soft on hands.  

Benzalkonium chloride is a quaternary ammonium cationic detergent. It has been used for decades  as an antiseptic and preservative in personal care, health care, household, pharmaceutical, and industrial products.

It is used in hand santisers across the world and is deemed safe for human use. It is commonly found even in the most sensitive of consumer applications such as antiseptic eyewashes, hand and face washes, mouthwashes whilst also the most demanding such as in the food industry for sanitisation purposes.
