Hand Sanitiser from Temasek Foundation
This new version of the hand sanitiser is manufactured by local supplier Klenco. It is coloured purple to make it look different from regular drinking water. This #BYOBclean hand sanitiser contains 0.2% benzalkonium chloride. It is the same active ingredient that was used in the first cycle of #BYOBclean, but at a slightly higher concentration.
According to Temasek Foundation, the hand sanitiser is alcohol-free, non-toxic, non-flammable, non-corrosive, biodegradable and does not cause dry hands.
