Germs are not a thing of the past, but the more you touch common areas, rather than running to the bathroom sink, look no further than on the go, Purell hand sanitizer. Germs spread fast, but you can be proactive with hand sanitizer. Purell makes it easier to freshen up and clean your heals before shaking hands, before a meal, and after coughing. Purell is brought to you by the private manufacturer, parent company, Gojo Industries, which was introduced Purell in 1996. Originally made for health care professionals, Purell was the first of its kind to be user-friendly, as other competitors’ product left hands greasy or white. After 15 seconds of application, Purell kills 99.9% of common germs in public areas.
