Are all hand gels created equal?

The ‘New Normal’ has brought with it a phenomenal demand for hand sanitiser as we are urged to keep washing and cleaning our hands as much as possible, and rightly so in my opinion. If you are out in public, you will not travel very far without seeing a hand sanitising station or bottle of hand gel for general use. The more you use these hand sanitisers at retail outlets, travel zones, schools and workplaces the more differences that you will spot in the types of hand gel on offer.  

Here at AF International, we obviously have a vested interested and genuinely believe that our Anti-bac+ Hand Rub is up there with the best. We therefore decided to dig a little deeper on this topic and find out just how much hand gels really vary.   

With this in mind, we randomly selected five hand gels on the market (four including our own) and subjected them to a round of rigorous testing including differences in texture, smell, packaging, antibacterial claims and alcohol content.

Watch the video below to find out the results.

Have you noticed a difference in hand gels available at communal areas? Do you prefer to trust your own choice of hand sanitiser and carry your own? We want to hear from you!
