"FrictionLabs chalk better than hand sanitizer"


Tuesday, 3 November

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, hand sanitizing chalk sounds almost too good to be true. Maybe it's not. As the pandemic drags on, we have to find ways to climb again safely. FrictionLabs’ new germ-killing liquid chalk - Secret Stuff Hygienic. It includes 80% ethanol, an even higher concentration than the 60% recommended by the CDC, WHO, and FDA for alcohol-based hand sanitizers during the pandemic.

In a study at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, participants’ hands were swabbed, then they used Secret Stuff Hygienic, then their hands were swabbed again. Each sample was placed on a Petri dish and tested for germ count. In every instance, Secret Stuff Hygienic reduced the germs on participants’ hands by a large margin, outperforming standard hand sanitizer. More info.
