Welcome to the proof page. Let’s start with some basic ground rules.

  1. We believe the CDC and the WHO.
    1. We don’t believe your maw-maw, no matter how much we love her. She’s probably not a scientist. (Sorry maw-maw, if you are!)
    2. We don’t trust the large companies. There’s too much profit involved.
  2. Here’s what the CDC says
    1. Time is the most important - rub your hands thoroughly for 20-30 seconds. More is better.
    2. Soap is your first choice. Wait.
    3. What, you got no Soap? Go for the alcohol. So you see? Soap is better than alcohol. Except for drinking. Drink responsibly. And wash your hands responsibly. With soap.

If you are the kind of person who reads footnotes, then you can handle this logic. First off, sanitizing is not a formally defined scientific word. In general, it’s used to indicate that a whole lot of certain kinds of bugs are killed when the process is applied properly.

In the past, things that were sanitized were only checked for a few kinds of bacteria and fungi. And the relative reduction in their numbers was about 1 in 10,000. That’s where the 99.99% comes from.

Sanitizing also does not necessarily mean that bugs are dead, either. It could be that they were washed away. Or that something in the sanitizer has crippled them so they don’t feel like reproducing like they used to.

Here’s some real studies that have proved the effectiveness of soap in sanitizing. This is the stuff that the CDC and WHO use to set policy. And as far as I know, nothing has been done that contradicts these.

Soap is the gold standard

Our stuff is soap, just re-engineered so that it’s also a lotion and easy to apply.

But many people get confused, because the word soap has been abused in our century. Now you won’t be confused, because you are looking at the future.

And if you’ve gotten this far, you’ve earned a special coupon code that gives you 50% off. Good job.

These guys at the CDC are the experts: If you know of someone better than them, let us know.
