PureBioGuard uses a revolutionary “mechanical” kill technology. The PureBioGuard formulation contains a positively charged polymer that 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 PureBioGuard have not lost their strength and the spikes are ready for the next microbe they encounter.

Yes. One application of PureBioGuard has a kill rate of over 99% within 60 seconds of application and keeps you protected from the morning until night.
PureBioGuard 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.
No. In fact, the long-lasting protective barrier formed by PureBioGuard Hand Sanitizer also serves to gently moisturize and soothe the skin.
PureBioGuard is effective against a broad spectrum of illness causing organisms, including bacteria, fungi, and viruses such as; MRSA, H1N1, VRE, C.dIFF, and many more!
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 PureBioGuard Hand Sanitizer’s kill process, it is not susceptible to resistance or mutation.
PureBioGuard 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.
PureBioGuard 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.
PureBioGuard Hand Sanitizer does not require constant re-application, which means that significantly less product is used on a daily basis. Yes, PureBioGuard is more effective and will ultimately be much more cost-effective.
PureBioGuard Hand Sanitizer begins working instantly to kill harmful germs as soon as it is applied. A protective and moisturizing barrier is formed on the skin that is only diminished through skin sloughing. PureBioGuard is effective through 24 hours or ten regular hand washings.
No, PureBioGuard Hand Sanitizer is alcohol free. Unlike other alcohol-based hand sanitizers, PureBioGuard Hand Sanitizer is not a skin irritant and will not lead to dry skin.
No, PureBioGuard Hand Sanitizer is not flammable because it contains no alcohol.
PureBioGuard Hand Sanitizer leaves no sticky residue or any unpleasant fragrance on your hands. The only noticeable difference will be moisturized hands.
Hand hygiene is recognized as the single most important means of preventing the spread of germs. PureBioGuard Hand Sanitizer kills 99.9% of the most common germs that may cause illness. By using PureBioGuard Hand Sanitizer as part of a regular hand hygiene regimen, you can prevent illness.
Yes. Unlike alcohol-based hand sanitizers which are a poison risk for children, PureBioGuard is non-toxic and operates via mechanical kill. Dermatologist tested and approved. PureBioGuard is completely safe and non-irritating on the skin.
Spray on and work product thoroughly into hands. Allow to dry without wiping. No water or rinsing is necessary.
