My girlfriend gave me this alcohol after she learned that I was about to start my job in the hospital this week. She told me that she herself uses and prefer this brand because of it's cologne smelling scent and the price is really affordable compared to other leading brand of the same 70% isoprophyl alcohol. I actually use an alcohol based hand sanitizer before because it's small and easy to carry on the pocket wherever I go. But I realize lately that my hand sanitizer and this alcohol has the same effect in killing those microorganism that I might in contact, yet there is really a big difference in the price. Hand sanitizer cost around 50% more than this alcohol that she gave. I now carry my Biogenic alcohol most of the time, especially when I go to work. This time I prefer this brand of alcohol than buying expensive hand sanitizer. Nowadays, since disease causing microorganisms are everywhere and protecting self against these unseen enemies is a must for everyone but it should necessarily cost you much. So I guess be more wise in spending.
