The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has taken the following position on hand sanitizers: The best way to keep hands free from bacteria and virus is to wash them regularly. The next best way is to protect your hands with a high quality hand sanitizer.
The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has stated that consumers must beware of hand sanitizers that claim to rid all bacteria and viruses.
According to the CDC, alcohol-based hand sanitizers can inactivate many types of microbes very effectively when used correctly*, people may not use a large enough volume of the sanitizers or may wipe it off before it has dried**.

Many studies have found that sanitizers with an alcohol concentration between 60–95% are more effective at killing germs than those with a lower alcohol concentration or non-alcohol-based hand sanitizers***.
Hand sanitizers without 60-95% alcohol 1) may not work equally well for many types of germs; and 2) merely reduce the growth of germs rather than kill them outright.

Tori Atkin, NY –
Love this hand gel. I use it every day.
Cindy Levitt, CA –
I look for a 99.99% kill rate in a hand sanitizer, and you’ve got it. That extra 9/10th % kills thousands more germs. And I understand AND appreciate that!
Mary McNally, WA –
I like the way my hands feel after using your hand gel. And I know that I’m protected.
John Weston, FL –
I’ve used other hand sanitizers, but yours just feels AND smells better, like it’s hospital grade. And it kills 99.99% of the bacteria and viruses that we encounter every day. It’s good stuff.
Denise Johnson, AZ –
I like the scent, it smells CLEAN. I know it’s not really scented, but I like the way it smells, and I know it’s effective.
Gina Stavos, NM –
I’m a nurse, and very familiar with hand sanitizers. Nature’s Own Doctor Mega 3X has the right content to be Hospital Grade. I use it as my personal hand gel.
Jeffrey Petrelli, MA –
I’m not taking any chances. I wash my hands with soap and water. But then I put a dab of your hand gel on. I wait until it dries and get the maximum protection.
Susan Kaplan, CA –
All I can say is thank you. This is the best hand sanitizer I’ve ever used. They’re not all the same. This is so pure & doesn’t leave my hands dry…they really feel moist AND I smell the hospital grade formula.
Lauri Goodworth, IL –
I’ve done some research 99.99% is a lot better than just 99.9%. Your hand sanitizer kills thousands more germs. That’s important to me. I have young kids. We don’t transfer our colds to each other anymore.
Mike Mink, AZ –
I know that hand sanitizer needs to have at least 60% alcohol to kill germs. That’s why I use Nature’s Own Doctor, Mega 3X. It works.
Tamara Patten – Louisville, KY –
One smell and I can tell the difference. It smells hospital grade when I first squirt it, but as I rub it on my hands, it just feels soft. When my hands are dry, they just smell clean. I love it…well worth the money!
Donna Desetty – Little Rock, AR –
I was skeptical about the price. But this is the BEST value I’ve found. It is hospital grade and only takes one pump. It isn’t like the typical hand sanitizers that feel like water. This is a thicker gel that feels great as you rub it into your hands. I’m a raving fan…have told all my friends!
Ashley Brown – Minneapolis, MN –
At first, I wondered why the price seemed high. But, when I got the product, it’s truly hospital grade! You can smell and feel the difference. Only one pump and my hands are covered and I feel covered! It’s a value product for sure.
Shelly Blake – Mesa, AZ –
I like that this is hospital grade and reviewed by a medical doctor. There’s a lot of hand sanitizers advertising now, and it’s hard to know what’s quality…this product IS QUALITY and is definitely hospital grade. You can smell it at first, but then it just leaves a clean smell when rubbed in. I’ll be re-ordering for sure.
Jennifer Stewart – Santa Fe, NM –
I ordered this for my mother who is considered “high risk” during this pandemic. She uses it every day throughout the day and loves that her hands aren’t dried out. She also told me she likes the hospital grade smell when you first squirt it out. She knows it is working. Thank you for putting out a quality product! I’ll be re-ordering for her and have ordered for my household as well.
Michael Taylor – Geneva, WI –
I’m giving this 4 stars, just because I never give any product 5 stars. Shipment was quick…I got the product within 3 days. And I was curious as to how Hospital Grade would smell. It’s definitely a stronger smell when you first squirt it on your hands, but it is soft gel that just leaves your hands feeling clean. I review a lot of products and this is a quality hand sanitizer. The best I’ve ever used! Well worth the price.
Cindy Solovitch – Little Rock, AR –
I’m giving this product a 3 star rating because I prefer a squeeze hand sanitizer instead of a pump. But, I must say, I can smell the difference instantly and then it’s gone leaving a clean scent. I’ll leave 5 stars when they have a squeeze bottle.
Kathy Kingsley – Portland, OR –
I’ve seen several reviews for other company’s who sell hand sanitizer products and people had issues receiving the product and with customer service. This is a quality product and a first rate company. Before I ordered, I asked a question on the live chat and got an immediate answer! And…just as they say, I received the tracking number and got the product at my door within 3-days. The product is GREAT but I really appreciate good customer service and communication. Thank you!!!
David Flougherty – Pittsburgh, PA –
It’s simple. Great product. Fast delivery. Quality and value for the price. I’ll re-order.
Amanda Bennett – Rochester, NY –
I was concerned about the price because we have 4 kids and are on a fixed budget. But, I must say, only one pump per child and I know they are protected. I think I’ll use a lot less and probably end up saving money…sounds crazy, when buying a more expensive product, but that’s what I’m seeing so far. I’m a very happy customer and would recommend this product to every mother!
Alexandra Bates – Denver, CO –
I saw this product advertised on Facebook and wondered about it. After looking at the reviews and the company information, I decided to order. Boy am I glad I did. This is a great product! I could instantly tell it was hospital grade. I received an immediate order confirmation. Followed by shipping tracking information and I got the product within 3 days. Highly recommend this product!
