WHO HAND SANITIZER BLEND PREMIX
We manufacture two NPN approved hand sanitizers. SANITIZER GEL and SANITIZER BLEND #1. This product is the same intermediate premix that we use to make our NPN approved SANITIZER BLEND #1. You mix this Blend with ethanol 20/80 v/v to create a version of the WHO Formulation #1. We are sharing this premix with distillers or other small ethanol manufacturers to help them respond quickly. It is important if you are blending hand sanitizer that you contact Health Canada and conform to all the regulations (as we do).
General information: Dimachem pivoted quickly to produce SANITIZER GEL in response to the COVID-19 crisis. We have committed two shifts and allocated all raw materials to existing customers/demand for our Sanitizer Gel product. Our goals are to sell directly to local industrial or commercial end-users who need the SANITIZER GEL to keep open their essential services businesses. We respectfully request that companies that are looking to repackage and/or resell look to source your materials elsewhere until such time as our capacity increases to meet the direct end-user demand.
We received a licence on March 25th, 2020 from Health Canada, Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate to produce this product. Site licence number: COV0023.
We are working hard to increase our capacity and serve the unprecedented need.
Washing your hands correctly (or using an alcohol-based hand rub) is the most effective thing you can do to protect yourself against a number of infectious diseases, such as influenza (the “flu”) and the common cold. Not only will it help keep you healthy, it will help prevent the spread of infectious diseases to others.
Even if your hands appear to be clean, they may carry germs. Hands pick up micro-organisms (germs) in a number of ways.
When people who are sick sneeze or cough, the germs that are making them sick are expelled into the air in tiny droplets. If these droplets get onto your hands, and then you touch your mouth, eyes or nose without washing away the germs, you carry the infection. You can also get sick if you don’t wash your hands before and after preparing food, after handling raw meat, and after using the toilet.
Washing your hands not only prevents you from getting sick, but it also reduces the risk of infecting others. If you don’t wash your hands properly before coming into contact with others, you can infect them with the germs on your hands. Other people can also get sick from the germs unwashed hands leave on shared objects like doorknobs, keyboards, and other equipment in the home or workplace.
Hand-to-hand contact can spread mild conditions, such as the common cold, but also more severe or life-threatening diseases. Infectious diseases are a particular risk to the very young, the elderly, those with a pre-existing disease, and people with a compromised immune system, such as those with HIV or AIDS.
If you have sensitive skin or are in a position where you must wash your hands constantly (as a healthcare worker must), you might want to use an alcohol-based hand rub instead.
Using Alcohol-based Hand Rubs
The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) publishes infection control guidelines for use by the provinces, territories, and healthcare organizations.
Working with the provinces and territorial governments, non-governmental organizations and health care providers, PHAC develops evidence-based national standards and policies, promotes the exchange of information, and engages in disease prevention and promotion activities.
