Q. Where and how are Goldshield products manufactured?

A. Goldshield products are manufactured in the USA at an FDA-certified pharmaceutical facility in a "clean room" environment to assure no product contamination. All protocols followed in our operations are those set by the demandingly strict International Organization for Standardization.

Q. Why is Goldshield 24 better than alcohol-based products?
A. Alcohol-based products like the leading brand evaporate quickly after application (8-10 seconds). When your hands are dry, alcohol loses 100% of its killing action. There is no residual killing protection with alcohol-based products, so multiple re-applications are necessary (nurses in hospitals often apply 50 times a day) causing skin dryness and cracking. Alcohol is toxic and flammable as well. By comparison Goldshield 24 is water-based and offers 24 hours residual antiseptic and antimicrobial protection that actually leaves the skin feeling soft, not red and cracked. Goldshield is safe for kids and non-flammable.

Q. Why do so many other hand sanitizers use alcohol?
A. It's very inexpensive that's why. In fact it's the cheapest antibacterial agent on the market. One can buy rubbing alcohol for 50 cents a bottle retail so imagine what the cost is at wholesale in large quantities.

Q. Is there any problem associated with repeated use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers?
A. Yes, in fact there is. Repeated use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers actually increases the risk of exposure to germs because alcohol causes the skin to become dry/irritated/cracked which is akin to a cracked windshield; the pesky germs slip through the cracks as easily as tiny bugs squeeze through a cracked windshield. This is true because alcohol strips away the body's natural surface oils thus leaving the skin dry and unprotected. Simply adding a moisturizer into an alcohol-based sanitizer does NOT replenish these natural body oils as many claim. Goldshield's water-based hand sanitizer does not cause these hand irritations and natural body oil loss problems.

Q. What is the difference between Goldshield 5 and 75?
A. Goldshield 75 is a ready-to-use product. Goldshield 5 is a liquid "concentrate" of 5% active ingredient, which the user dilutes in water ... mix 1 part/gallon of concentrate with 5 parts/gallons of concentrate to make 6 parts/gallons of ready-to-use product. Goldshield 5 is used in concentrate form in laundry applications, Click Here

Q. Is Goldshield24 better than soap?
A. Independent lab tests have demonstrated that Goldshield 24’s active ingredient is more effective against a broad spectrum of viruses and bacteria than antimicrobial active ingredients found in soap. That said we believe that washing hands with soap and water is the first line of defense against bacteria. But, when we find ourselves in situations where washing with soap and water isn't convenient, Goldshield 24 is the answer.

Q. What happens if Goldshield 24 is accidentally swallowed?
A. In such circumstances we recommend contacting a healthcare professional for guidance.

Q. What is Goldshield’s “active ingredient”?
A. The Goldshield 24 formula uses Benzalkonium Chloride  introduced as the "active" antiseptic agent plus proprietary Goldshield® chemistry that, when applied to skin, attaches to the carbohydrates of the skin that poly-hydroxilate thus providing instant killing action and  hours of residual protection.

Q. How often should Goldshield 24 be used?
A. Once is all that’s needed because Goldshield has hours of residual protection. However, we recommend a "wash-dry-and-apply" regimen. So, during the day when you wash and dry your hand,s applying Goldshield 24 is added protection, plus your hands will stay soft, not red and cracked.

Q. Will Goldshield 24 stain floors, carpets, fabrics, jewelry or other surfaces?
A. Not at all. Goldshield will NOT stain floors, carpets, fabrics or jewelry. It won’t even cause nail polish to be removed. By comparison, it’s well known in the healthcare industry, that alcohol-based hand sanitizers, when dripped on the floor, actually cause floor wax to disintegrate creating a nutrient field that allows bacteria to grow.
