It’s currently used in operating rooms, nursing homes, schools, “clean” laboratory rooms, doctors’ offices, and other places where the amount of germs in an environment must be kept to a minimum. Now it’s available in a convenient form for LDS missionaries to use, worldwide.
“A number of LDS missions have called us up and have ordered PureBioguardTM in bulk,” says Dr. Tadmor Asaaf, Director of Innovation for PureBiologixTM. “Many missions, particularly those in regions that are prone to flu outbreaks or have limited sanitation, have tried it and wholeheartedly approve of it. One mission reported that their number of missionary sick days has dropped by almost 80% when they instituted the use of this product mission-wide.
PureBioguardTM is a small spray-bottle of hand sanitizer– or so I thought when I opened the package. But when I micro-sprayed it on, I noticed that it felt like more like lotion and smelled pleasant, not a thing like alcohol-based sanitizer.
The company has spent more than twenty years developing this product for ultra-clean surfaces. Their aim was to overcome the limitations of alcohol, which evaporates quickly. The bottle’s instructions say to rub it all over your hands until dry. The difference: this stuff isn’t evaporating, it’s actually bonding with the outermost layer of your skin.
It creates a long-lasting barrier to germs and it can last up to 20x as long as traditional sanitizer, because it’s not alcohol based.
The micro-spray is also exact. You use less, because you can spray it exactly where you want to.
“Based on feedback from the missions we have re-tooled the size,” says Assaf. “The individual spray bottle is small enough for missionaries to carry around in a pocket or bag, and durable enough to take a lot of varied situations in the field. Missionaries can also use it to clean surfaces and questionable items such as toilet flush-handles. That is, of course, what it was originally designed for.”
We haven’t been able to say enough good things about this spray bottle from PureBiologixTM. As we build our own e-store for missionaries, it will be one of the first items we stock. Until the store is built, you can get the spray for your missionaries by clicking here.
