Been using alcohol-based hand sanitizer for years, but was never quite clear about whether it was as effective against germs as hand sanitizers which do not kill some common germs such as salmonella, e. Coli, MRSA. As for ALLAPURE, it is very effective killing germs like e.coli, salmonella, MRSA. ALLAPURE leaves my hands soft and not greasy. Applying ALLAPURE as needed, I feel more confident knowing my hands being cleanse and germ free when soap and water is not available. I keep ALLAPURE with me at all times. I don’t leave home without it, as no one needs should.
