Foaming Hand Sanitizers

Foaming hand sanitizers do double duty of cleaning hands in the workplace or home and preventing the spread of germs by killing bacteria on contact. Many of the hand sanitizers also contain moisturizing agents that keep hands hydrated and soft without leaving oily or sticky residue on the skin. Foaming hand soaps are cost-effective, requiring much less soap and more efficient use of the soap than bars or gels under normal use. Browse Staples wide selection of cleaning supplies to find exactly what you need.

Foaming Hand Sanitizers Have Special Dispensers
The bottles of foaming soap come with different pump shapes and sizes for dispensing the soap. The soap in the bottle is a water-based liquid, not a lotion or gel, to work effectively with the pump. A straw-like tube attaches to the pump and reaches down into the bottle to siphon up the liquid soap. The pump chamber contains a non-aerating screen that compresses the liquid into foam. Pressing down on the pump releases the foaming hand soap, and the pump returns to its position as more soap displaces the air in the tube. The foam that comes out of the dispenser is less concentrated than the liquid but provides plenty of lather, so you use less soap for sanitizing and cleaning your hands.

Foaming Hand Sanitizers Contain Germ Killers
The active sanitizing ingredient varies from one brand of soap to another. Some contain ethyl alcohol, a fast-drying disinfectant for cleaning wounds and surgical sites. Other foaming hand soaps are alcohol-free, containing antiseptic, renewable, bio-certified ethanol. Select products contain benzalkonium chloride, a germ-killing ingredient with an ammonia base, also alcohol-free. Each is effective at on-contact elimination of a high percentage of common illness-causing germs. Many brands claim their active agents kill virulent bacterium strains that include MRSA, VRE, e coli, and salmonella.

What Type of Moisturizers Do Foaming Hand Sanitizers Contain?
Moisturizing ingredients not only leave hands hydrated and refreshed, but they also help hands remain healthy with frequent, repeated use. Foaming hand soaps with moisturizing agents are particularly beneficial for the staff of medical practices, who have to protect themselves from germs and from spreading them. Some of the moisturizing ingredients in foaming soaps include vitamin E, pro-vitamin B5, and glycerin. Natural ingredients like cucumber, aloe, and green-tea extract also help maintain skin hydration and suppleness.

Are Foaming Hand Sanitizers Scented?
Some of the foaming soaps contain either natural or man-made essences to give them fresh or clean scents. Most are unscented, however, to keep them free of additives. Many of the foaming hand soaps are also free of fluoridated chemicals, allergenic latex, and dyes.

What Sizes Are Available in Foaming Hand Sanitizers?
The dispenser bottles of foaming soap come in a variety of sizes, for personal use, home use, or commercial use. You can get small, 1.5-ounce bottles to carry around in your handbag or backpack, to have on hand for use in public facilities. Medium-size bottles are available in 15.2 to 23-ounce containers (450 to 700 milliliters), while larger sizes for commercial settings are available in 34 to 40-ounce bottles (1,000 to 1,200 milliliters). Depending on the size of the bottle, foaming hand soaps come in amounts of 2, 3, 4, 6, 12, and 24 bottles per pack.
