Pico has launched its Hand Sanitizer line with 80% ethanol (alcohol) composition, the most concentrated formulation recommended by the WHO and FDA. This formula has been proven by the scientific community to be most effective on viruses, including the current global pandemic.
The safety of customers has always been at the forefront of Pico’s product philosophy. That is why it was imperative for the company to launch with the FDA recommended 80% formula, to ensure the best outcome for destruction of viruses on customers’ hands. Pico’s formula contains no dyes or fragrances – it is strictly geared toward effective hand hygiene.
Pico Hand Sanitizing Gel is a high viscosity quality gel with an outstanding ethanol purity level of 99.55%. Every drop has maximized potency and the gel thickness level is apparent as it is dispensed from packaging with a squeeze, and not by gravity, when the bottle is turned upside down. With the addition of Hand Sanitizer, Pico is now your one-stop-shop for full foodservice safety, from temperature to hands!
New Standards of Effectiveness
Prior to the outbreak of Coronavirus, hand sanitizer products varied over a wide range in terms of their composition, alcohol content, and many contained additional ingredients purely for color, aesthetics and fragrance. Higher standards of hand sanitizer effectiveness have been prioritized and mandated in the wake of the global pandemic, to minimize the risk of infection. Extensive testing has been conducted by the medical community, based on findings by the World Health Organization (WHO), to determine the most effective formula for preventing the spread of COVID-19. According to Medical News Today: “Tests have confirmed that two hand sanitizer formulations recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) inactivate the virus that causes coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19).”
