Dettol Liquid Hand Wash – Original Anti Bacterial Formula
What is the Dettol Original Liquid Hand Wash?
Hand washing is a simple way to stay healthy and there are a variety of options at your disposal to ensure that your hands stay clean. The most common cleansing product used is the bar of soap, however, liquid soap, powder soap, liquid hand sanitizer and hand wipes are all alternatives that are equally as effective or more so.
Most research shows that alcohol based hand sanitizers are far more effective at killing bacteria and making your hands germ free as compared to soap bars, liquid soap or powder soap. However, the obvious potential for misuse and the fact that alcohol based sanitizers cause dryness of the skin has resulted in their use being less than common.
Dettol is a brand trusted with providing antibacterial protection due to their ubiquitously used antiseptic liquid for scrapes, bruises, cuts and even wounds, especially in the subcontinent. The Dettol Original Hand Wash Antibacterial Liquid Soap is a liquid based soap that the manufacturer claims helps to kill 99.9% of germs and provides ten times more protection than ordinary hand soaps.
A full list of ingredients used in the Dettol Liquid Hand Wash is given further below. The contents are a variety of chemicals that are meant to help create suds, keep your skin hydrated, inhibit and kill bacteria as well as perfume and colorants.
Methylisothiazolinone and Methylchloroisothiazolinone are preservatives that are approved for use in cosmetics in limited concentrations by various regulatory agencies worldwide. The main antibacterial ingredients in the Dettol Original Hand Wash Antibacterial Liquid Soap are Chloroxylenol, Polyquaternium 7 and Tetrasodium EDTA along with salicylic acid and citric acid.
Sodium Laureth Sulfate and Cocamidopropyl betaine act as surfactants and foaming agents. Other ingredients such as table salt, lye, water and glycerine are also present.
While all of the ingredients are approved for use in toiletries or beauty products, a number of them have been found to be irritants or allergenics. Anyone that has had prior reactions to products such as shampoos and other toiletries should use this product with caution or give it a miss. However, the Dettol Original Hand Wash Antibacterial Liquid Soap should be safe for most people, as are most common soaps, shampoos, moisturizers and other personal care products.
Why use the Dettol Original Liquid Hand Wash?
The Dettol Original Liquid Hand Wash is an effective and convenient way of ensuring your hands stay clean. Unlike soap bars, the product is not contaminated as there is no direct contact with the liquid soap. It is also convenient to use as you can simply pump out a suitable quantity of the product instead of rubbing a bar of soap between your hands to get the desired amount.
The Dettol Original Hand Wash Antibacterial Liquid Soap forms suds and helps clean your hands like regular soaps. It is much more effective at killing and inhibiting germs, providing a measure of antibacterial protection and thus likely reducing the incidence of diseases preventable through effective hygiene.
It has a basic but pleasant fragrance and does not dry out your skin like alcohol based hand sanitizers. The unused liquid soap is not contaminated as there is no direct contact, ensuring that it remains clean and safe to use. The pump based mechanism of the bottle allows you to gain the desired amount of the Dettol Original Hand Wash Antibacterial Liquid Soap with ease.
The Dettol Original Hand Wash Antibacterial Liquid Soap contains several ingredients that are known to be irritants or allergenic for certain people. While antibacterial soap may help clean your hands today, it may also result in new strains of bacteria evolving that are more resistant to the product's antibacterial chemicals.
The Dettol Original Hand Wash Antibacterial Liquid Soap helps keep your hands clean, ensuring your hygiene and reducing the likelihood of contracting preventable diseases. Although unlikely to be as effective as alcohol based hand sanitizers, this liquid soap is unlikely to cause dryness of your skin but is much more effective at killing germs than average soap bars.
