WHY YOU NEED IT
The Problem: Harmful germs are everywhere, but alcohol-based hand sanitizers and gels aren’t the answer!
- Alcohol-based hand sanitizer products are toxic
- Only last 2 minutes per use
- Changes your skin’s natural PH
- Dries out skin
- Can be absorbed into skin / “licked off” and ingested
- Gel residues actually attract more germs
- Must use over & over to combat germs
The Everest™ Solution: 24Hour Defense™
- Kills 99.99% of germs & keeps them away up to 24 hrs
- Germ barrier kills germs physically (punctures bacteria cell wall)
- Safe for children & adults
- Remains effective thru hand washings
- Leaves hands soft and smooth
- Does not dry out the skin
- No gel residues / no alcohol / no fragrance
- More economical than traditional alcohol-based products
HOW TO USE
HOW TO USE – 24Hour Defense™ only needs to be applied once per day. Simply follow these basic instructions to keep germs away all day:
- Start with clean hands. Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
- Apply 1 or 2 pumps to hands
- Rub into hands thoroughly – getting product on all hand surfaces
- Let dry
- Live confidently *
* This product is not intended to replace hand washing. Per CDC guidelines, continue to wash your hands frequently (handwashing will not negate nor reduce the power of 24 Hour Defense™ Hand Purifier).
PROBLEM: Alcohol-based hand sanitizer products use flammable alcohol in a gel that is only effective if it is allowed to stay wet on your hands for 15 seconds or more. Once it has dried, experts say you only get 2 minutes of effective protection on your hands and they can be re-contaminated almost immediately. The alcohol also changes the natural pH of your skin, which makes it more susceptible to infection. And the gel residue left behind from alcohol-based hand sanitizers can actually attract and hold more germs from touching contaminated surfaces.
SOLUTION: Everest’s own luxurious foaming hand purifier. Alcohol-Free. Fragrance-Free. Now you can keep your hands safe from germs no matter where you go. One application of the foaming 24Hour Defense™ Hand Purifier effectively and safely kills 99.99% of germs on the hand and prevents re-contamination for up to 24hrs via a physical kill. This amazing product also conditions, moisturizes and keeps germs off of your skin.
MORE ECONOMICAL TO USE:
You get a lot more bang for your buck in each bottle! This shows how much of the leading alcohol-based hand sanitizer you would need to use to equal the lasting microbial defense found in each bottle of 24Hour Defense™ by Everest Microbial Defense:
1 – 24Hour Defense™ Travel Size bottle = 34 GALLONS of the leading alcohol-based hand sanitizer
1 – 24Hour Defense™ Family Size bottle = 125 GALLONS of the leading alcohol-based hand sanitizer
1 – 24Hour Defense™ Economy Size bottle = 416 GALLONS of the leading alcohol-based hand sanitizer
HOW IT WORKS
The Science: The physical kill (of germs and microbes) is accomplished by the active ingredient EV360™ forming a nano-scale biostatic layer on the surface of the hands. This layer is invisible and can’t be felt. It consists of millions of carbon-based nano-spikes that self-assemble in layers (see Fig 1) and bond covalently with the skin. Each nano-spike is made up of a carbon shaft with a nitrogen molecule at its base. The positively charged nitrogen interacts with the negatively charged germs like a magnet that draws it down onto the carbon spike. The result is a physically ruptured or “stabbed” germ that can’t survive – or adapt to become resistant. That is how 24Hour Defense™ Hand Purifier effectively keeps your hands safe from FUTURE contamination! The nano-spikes are very durable and stay bonded to the skin surface through touching and hand washing. They stay attached to the skin until your body naturally sheds the outermost skin cells – which is about every 24 hours.
Fig 1. Self-assembled layers of the active ingredient attach to all available bonding sites, leaving a ‘forest’ of molecules that extend from the skin surface, preventing adhesion of microbes at the interface, and causing a physical disruption of membrane function which causes bacterial cell death.
