babyorganix scary effects on overusing alcohol hand sanitizer

As we continue combatting the COVID19 pandemic, we should also keep following the new normal practices for quite some time. To avoid further spread of the virus, we are all required to wear a mask, wash our hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use a hand sanitizer and maintain a social distance. 

The use of hand sanitizers has increased significantly during the COVID19 outbreak and to some degree, we are using it too much. Some became obsessed with using it. However, the overuse of alcohol hand sanitizer can put our health at risk. As conventional hand sanitizers are packed with toxic and harmful ingredients that not just can irritate our skin but worse can lead to serious conditions. 

That is why BabyOrganix is here to educate everyone about the scary effects of overusing hand sanitizers and what products to use that are healthy and safe for the skin and health of your baby.

Scary Effects of Excessively Using Hand Sanitizers

  1. It can create stronger bacteria

Hand sanitizer with antibacterial ingredients may lead to further development of antibiotic-resistance bacteria, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. In order to avoid producing those scary little bacteria, it is important to practice washing your hands as much as possible instead of using sanitizer.

  1. It can affect fertility

Some hand sanitizers are composed of alcohol, like ethyl alcohol, as an active ingredient that acts as an antiseptic. However, there are also some non-alcohol based hand sanitizers available in the market that contain an antibiotic compound called triclosan or triclocarban. Several clinical studies have shown that triclosan is a health threat because its overuse has adverse effects on fertility, fetal growth, and asthma occurrences.

  1. It can impact your body development

A hand sanitizer particularly with too much fragrance might be filled with harmful chemicals such as phthalates and parabens. Phthalates are endocrine disruptors that can influence the body’s development and reproduction. Parabens are toxins that can affect hormone functioning, fertility, birth results, and reproductive growth negatively.

  1. It can increase the risk of eczema

If you use hand sanitizer every day, you may have found that your hands have become extremely dry. The alcohol in hand sanitizer can dry out the skin and may increase the risk of hand dermatitis or eczema. This is generally manifested as redness, dryness, cracks, and even blisters on the skin that cause itching or discomfort.

It is important not to overuse hand sanitizer especially for children who have naturally delicate and very sensitive skin. You can use moisturizers or much better the BabyOrganix Eczema Care Set to prevent having eczema due to excessive use of hand sanitizers and handwashing.
