What is BiOGLOVE?
BiOGLOVE is a revolutionary next generation hand sanitizer and skin protectant! Traditional hand sanitizers are alcohol-based and only kill germs for the moment when applied. BiOGLOVE forms an invisible glove-like antimicrobial barrier on your hands that not only kills germs on contact, but also provides all day protection against frequent contamination by germs with one application.
How does BiOGLOVE work?
BiOGLOVE uses a revolutionary electrostatic and mechanical nanotechnology ingredient to attract, penetrate, destabilize and destroy a germ’s* membrane surface causing leakage, lysis and destruction (*germs => bacteria, viruses, fungi and other pathogens). You may think of it as a protective layer of nanoparticle spikes that attract germs and pierce their membrane causing them to destabilize and die.
Does BiOGLOVE contain alcohol?
No. BiOGLOVE is alcohol-free. The active ingredient in BiOGLOVE’s proprietary formula is benzalkonium chloride (0.13%), one of very few ingredients eligible for review and permitted under the U.S. FDA’s OTC (Over-The-Counter) Drug Review for use in consumer antiseptic rub products..
Is BiOGLOVE more effective than traditional alcohol-based hand sanitizers?
Yes. Traditional alcohol-based gel hand sanitizers do not work well in the presence of dirt, grease or natural and other oils which can trap germs on the skin allowing them to survive and grow. Even after hand washing, alcohol-based hand sanitizers quickly absorb into the skin and evaporate in seconds after application offering no residual germ-killing protection. BiOGLOVE is a next generation hand sanitizer and skin protectant that forms an invisible, glove-like antimicrobial barrier on your hands that provides long-lasting protection against frequent contact and contamination by germs throughout the day.
What types of germs does BiOGLOVE kill?
BiOGLOVE kills 99.99% of common germs that may cause illness or disease. The FDA does not permit hand sanitizer companies from stating false or misleading claims their product kills specific types of germs. The active ingredient in BiOGLOVE (benzalkonium chloride 0.13%) has been shown to be highly effective against a broad spectrum of germs that may cause illness or disease including bacteria, viruses, fungi and other pathogens. For more detailed information, we recommend researching the specific antimicrobial efficacy of the active ingredient in BiOGLOVE to make an informed decision if BiOGLOVE is the right product for your use.
Do germs develop a resistance to BiOGLOVE?
No. BiOGLOVE uses a “mechanical-kill” process to kill germs vs. a chemical kill process which can encourage germ mutation and resistance formation. Since nothing is transferred in BiOGLOVE’s kill process the germ is not susceptible to mutation or resistance formation and BiOGLOVE maintains its ability to persistently kill germs.
Is BiOGLOVE safe?
Yes. The ingredients in BiOGLOVE are the same used in many cosmetic and personal care products, including as a preservative in nasal sprays and eye drops in low doses. The active ingredient has also been used safely for many years in hospital, restaurant, food safety and multiple other industry sector products. BiOGLOVE is directed for external, topical use only. If safety is a concern, we recommend researching the ingredients in BiOGLOVE to make an informed decision whether it is the right product for your use.
Does BiOGLOVE really provide all-day protection against germs?
Yes. BiOGLOVE’s formulation contains a positively charged polymer that forms a bond with the surface of your skin similar in function to sunscreen. This nanotechnology protective barrier persistently kills germs for up to 12 hours and 10 hand washings and is only diminished through skin sloughing (shedding).
Will BiOGLOVE dry my hands like alcohol-based hand sanitizers?
