Will Kleenhanz® dry out my hands?

No! There is absolutely no alcohol in Kleenhanz®. Alcohol is a drying agent. Instead, Kleenhanz® uses antimicrobial and hypoallergenic agents Benzethonium Chloride and Benzalkonium Chloride with a touch of lanolin and aloe to moisturize your skin. This newer science utilizes quaternary compounds (detergents) rather than the older methods of ethyl alcohol to kill germs and bacteria, eliminating the harsh side effects of alcohol based hand sanitizers. When you wipe your hands with a Kleenhanz® towelette you are cleaning, disinfecting and moisturizing while providing germ killing protection for over two hours. Many alcohol based products claim to include moisturizers as well, but the overwhelming drying aspects of alcohol tend to cause continued irritation. In addition, products often claim to be alcohol free, but they may still have alcohol in their inactive ingredients…so be sure to check!
