A New Kind of Hand Sanitizer Kills Germs Between Hand Washings

Dentistry Today


Ho Dental Company of Las Vegas, NV, is launching a new kind of hand sanitizer to the dental industry this week. One For All Foaming Hand Sanitizer is an alcohol-free formulation that does what 70% alcohol-based sanitizers can’t: It protects users for hours, in-between hand washings.

One For All Outperforms 70% Alcohol Sanitizers

“Many people, including medical professionals, don’t realize that the minute alcohol sanitizer is dry, it stops providing protection,” stated Phillip Ho, DMD, co-inventor of One for All hand sanitizer. “If you touch an infected surface, you need to reapply alcohol sanitizers. That’s impractical for daily use.”

One for All kills more than 99.9% bacteria, fungi, and viruses (including human coronavirus) in less than 15 seconds. Its active ingredient, benzalkonium chloride, is one of three FDA-compliant ingredients for hand sanitizers and kills germs on contact. One For All is fortified with patented Nanodex™ technology, which has been shown in laboratory testing to kill germs for up to 24 hours. Nanodex forms a long-lasting barrier on the skin that continues killing germs until it is washed off.

“One For All is a superior solution for dental and medical offices,” Dr. Ho said. “First, it can protect their staff, who are interacting with the public all day. Secondly, it can help protect their patients by limiting the spread of germs and bacteria in the dental office.”

Minimizes Skin Drying and Cracking

In addition to providing superior protection, One For All boasts moisturizing properties to help healthcare professionals avoid the drying and cracking of skin that’s common with repeated use of alcohol-based sanitizers. The formula features Jojoba Oil, a natural moisturizer. Tea Tree and Rosemary Oils are natural biocides with skin-healing properties, and Vitamins C and E offer skin-rejuvenating benefits.

“One of the top complaints we hear about alcohol sanitizer is that it irritates the skin with repeated use. Painful, chapped and cracked skin is an opportunity for infection,” Dr. Ho said. “We formulated One For All to be soothing and supportive to the skin.”

Developed by Scientists, Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) 

One for All was developed by ACatechol, Inc., (https://www.acatechol.com/), where Ho Dental’s CEO Dr. Phillip Ho serves as Executive Vice President of Product Development. The ACatechol team includes internationally recognized scientists and clinicians. The company has been awarded with grants from both the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institute of Health (NIH) to develop the next generation of sanitizers in the fight against infectious diseases such as COVID-19.

FDA-Registered and Made in the USA

One For All Sanitizer is registered with the FDA and is manufactured in the USA at an FDA-registered facility.
