Weaker Immune System: Researchers at University of Michigan School of Public Health found that sanitizer may negatively affect human immune function.  In the study, children and teens were more likely to be diagnosed with hay fever and other allergies from sanitizer overuse.

Environmental Impact: Sanitizer containing 60% or greater concentration of alcohol is considered Hazardous Waste, cannot be recycled and must be disposed of through proper hazardous waste removal channels. 

Alcohol Poisoning: Annually, in the USA alone, more than 20,000 children are hospitalized for alcohol poisoning caused by accidentally ingesting hand sanitizer. 

Hand sanitizer is not an effective short or long term method of dealing with hand and surface bacteria.


Antibiotic Resistance: Epidemic Intelligence Service at the U.S. CDC and Prevention found that health care employees who use hand sanitizers over soap & water for routine hand washing were nearly six times more at risk for outbreaks.

Hormone Disruption: The FDA says overuse of sanitizer leads to hormonal disruptions and cause bacteria to adapt to its antimicrobial properties.
