Hand Sanitizers

While hand washing is the best way to clean your hands of bacteria, it may not always be an option. Hand sanitizer can provide an alternative to hand washing, especially while on the go. The question is, how do you know which hand sanitizer is best? When shopping for hand sanitizers, find the Natural Product Number (NPN) or Drug Identification Number (DIN) on the label, which can help to identify the product and the active ingredients. Once you’ve found the NPN or DIN, look for it on the list of hand sanitizers that are authorized by Health Canada.
