How does BioGlove work?
BioGlove uses a revolutionary “mechanical” kill technology. The BioGlove formulation contains a positively charged polymer which forms a bond with the surface of your skin.
You could think of this bond as a layer of “spikes” that attracts harmful microbes and draws them in. The spikes puncture the microbe’s outer cell membrane, causing it to destabilize and die.
Since nothing is transferred to the (now dead) microbe in the killing process, the anti-microbial properties of BioGlove have not lost their strength and the spikes are ready for the next microbe they encounter.
Does BioGlove Hand Sanitizer really provide all-day germ protection?
Yes. One application of BioGlove has a kill rate of over 99% within 60 seconds of application and keeps you protected from the morning until night.
BioGlove Hand Sanitizer does not lose its efficacy when hands are washed, (up to 10 hand washings, in fact) but should always be used in conjunction with an appropriate hand washing regimen.
In contrast, once an alcohol-based sanitizer has evaporated, it’s killing power is gone.

Do germs develop a resistance to BioGlove Hand Sanitizer?
No. Alcohol-based sanitizers utilize a chemical kill by essentially poisoning microbes – which can actually encourage mutation and resistance formation.
Because nothing is transferred to the microbe in BioGlove Hand Sanitizer’s kill process, it is not susceptible to resistance or mutation.
Is BioGlove more effective than traditional hand sanitizers?
BioGlove has demonstrated a higher instant kill rate on bacteria than alcohol-based sanitizers.
The recommendation of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) is that recurrent use of alcohol-based gel hand sanitizers is not effective without adequate hand washing between uses due to the fact that gels can trap dirt and potentially pathogenic organisms on the skin. Effectiveness decreases with added use and alcohol-based products are ineffective after the third use without hand washing. Alcohol gels do not work well in the presence of dirt or grease.
How often should I apply BioGlove Hand Sanitizer?
BioGlove Hand Sanitizer can safely be used as often as you like. Each additional application adds to the coverage areas that may have been missed in previous applications. Keep in mind that one thorough application does provide the same daily protection as an alcohol-based hand sanitizer applied every 60 seconds.
