PROVIDERS OF HAND SANITIZERS ARE IN GREAT NEED DUE TO THE COVID-19 VIRUS!

We commend those companies who are stepping in to manufacture these badly needed products to the public during this shortage!

It is important to know FDA – Federal Food and Drug Administration - manufacturing requirements for compliance. This is due to the fact that hand sanitizers are Over-the-Counter (OTC) Drugs in the US.

  • You must have a Drug Manufacturing License with US FDA
  • Product registration is also required, and there are other manufacturing and handling requirements.
  • You will need to follow Drug GMPs.

We can help quickly and efficiently fulfill these FDA regulatory requirements, often in less than a week!

  • We will provide you with the support needed to get your products to market!  
  • We have 27 years of experience in working with FDA and their mandates and can help you rapidly fulfill these requirements.

This is a timely issue and using the FDA temporary guidance will be a challenge, so please let us help you!

THE NEW RULES FOR SURVIVING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Thank you to James Robb, MD FCAP for allowing us to share this valuable information

This COVID-19 virus is spread in large droplets by coughing and sneezing. This means that all surfaces where these droplets land are potentially infectious for about a week on average - everything that is associated with infected people will be contaminated and potentially infectious.

The COVID-19 virus is on surfaces and you will not be infected unless your unprotected face is directly coughed or sneezed upon. This virus only has cell receptors for lung cells (it only infects your lungs).

The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose or mouth via your hands or an infected cough or sneeze onto or into your nose or mouth.

  • No handshaking!  Use fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.
  • Do not touch your face, rub your eyes or mouth!  We touch our nose/mouth on average 90 times a day without knowing it!
  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap for at least 20 seconds,                          
  • Use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you return home from ANY activity that involves locations where other people have been.
  • Keep a bottle of sanitizer available at each of your home's entrances and in your car for use after getting gas or touching other contaminated objects when you can't immediately wash your hands.
  • Use disinfectant wipes at the stores when they are available, including wiping the handle and child seat in grocery carts.
  • Use only your knuckle to touch light switches, elevator buttons, etc. Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.
  • Open doors with your closed fist or hip - do not grasp the handle with your hand, unless there is no other way to open the door, especially important on bathroom and post office/commercial doors.
  • If possible, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to. The clothing on your elbow will contain infectious virus that can be passed on for up to a week or more!
  • Zinc lozenges have been proven to be effective in blocking most viruses from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynx. Use as directed several times a day when you begin to feel ANY "cold-like" symptoms beginning. It is best to lie down and let the lozenge dissolve in the back of your throat and nasopharynx

Humans have never seen this snake-associated COVID-19 virus before and have no internal defense against it. Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the molecular and clinical virology of this virus. Unbelievable molecular knowledge about the genomics, structure, and virulence of this virus has already been achieved. BUT, there will be NO drugs or vaccines available this year to protect us or limit the infection within us. Only symptomatic support is available.

I hope these personal thoughts will be helpful during this potentially catastrophic pandemic. You are welcome to share this email.

Good luck to all of us!
