An early Christmas present.

My friend Mark was thoughtful enough to think of me when he came across X3. This hand sanitizer foams and kills germs and bacteria with benzalkonium chloride instead of alcohol. That makes this a non-drying formulation. It's also said to be fragrance free, non-toxic and non-irritating. I tried it and it didn't remove a layer of skin like some hand sanitizers do. It must be effective because it's used by police officers. I guess the next time I'm being frisked I can relax just a little knowing the officer's hands are germ free -- assuming he/she sanitized before and after.

  1. Ah good old alkyldimethylbenzylammonium chloride. The germs die just trying to say it.
