With a nationwide focus on stopping the spread of germs, there's never been a better time than now to promote your brand using custom logo hand sanitizers. With so many types to choose from, where should you start? Here are a few pointers to help you choose! Once you've read all about the different hand sanitizer choices available, you'll be ready to browse our logo sanitizer store and purchase the perfect sanitizer to complement your logo and build your brand.
Alcohol vs. Non-Alcohol Branded Sanitizers
When it comes to the active ingredients, there are essentially two main types of branded hand sanitizers. Alcohol based hand sanitizer is what's used in the healthcare field. It's more effective at killing germs, especially viruses. Hand sanitizers containing at least 60% ethyl alcohol are recommended for best results when it comes to killing germs. Non-alcohol based sanitizer can be effective against some types of bacteria, but it typically isn't effective against most viruses. Some sanitizers contain benzalkonium chloride as a substitute for alcohol, which is not as effective at killing germs. Even worse, there have been reports of some manufacturers using toxic ingredients such as methanol in their sanitizers, so it's important to make sure you're not using one of these sanitizers (a list can be found on the FDA's website).
Bottom line: Purchase custom logo sanitizer that contains at least 60% ethyl alcohol.
Scented vs. Unscented Branded Sanitizers
Custom logo sanitizer comes in both scented and unscented formulas. If you'll be handing out your custom logo sanitizer as a giveaway at a trade show or other event, unscented sanitizer might be the best choice. Some people are sensitive to certain smells, so while scented hand sanitizer might be pleasant for some people, it may leave others unable to use it.
Bottom Line: When in doubt, the safe bet is to buy branded sanitizer that's unscented.
Pumps vs. Squeeze Bottles vs. Spray Sanitizers?
When it comes to packaging, there are a few types of branded sanitizers. The most popular style is a squeeze bottle of sanitizer with a custom logo label. It's versatile and works in most any setting. Sanitizer pump bottles can also be branded with your custom logo. They're perfect for home and office settings as they typically contain a larger volume of sanitizer and can be stored on a desk or countertop. Lastly, custom logo sanitizer can also come in the form of a spray bottle or spray pen. These are great for when you're on-the-go, as they're small and compact and can fit easliy in your pocket, purse or vehicle.
Bottom Line: Unless the sanitizer will be placed in a permanent location like a desk or counter top, branded sanitizer spray pens and squeeze bottles are both great choices. They're small enough to travel with and can be stored with ease. Some of our custom logo sanitizer squeeze bottles can be purchased with a carabiner clip or travel sleeve for even easier transport and storage. Which brings us to the next point...
Plain Custom Logo Sanitizer Bottle vs. Travel Sleeve
Branded hand sanitizer bottles can come with or without a travel sleeve. Travel sleeves come in a variety of materials such as silicone or neoprene, and they also come in a variety of colors to complement your logo and to add an element of color to your promotion. In addition to the increased brand appeal, travel sleeves are perfect for on-the-go hand sanitizing. They can clip onto just about anything, like your keys, purse or stroller.
Bottom Line: If your budget allows, buying custom logo sanitizer that comes with a silicone or neoprene travel case with clip is the way to go! Even when the sanitizer is gone, the travel sleeve can be reused over and over.
