Surgicept® offers a clinically tested, fast-acting hand sanitizer with long-lasting protection up to 6 hours. Our patented, non-sticky formula with moisturizers helps prevent drying and leaves hands soft and smooth, so you can use Surgicept® Hand Sanitizer as often as you'd like.
Developed by scientists and used by surgeons. Surgicept® was launched in 2006, providing surgeons a fast and effective surgical scrub with persistence.
Supported by laboratory testing, our engineered formula is clinically proven to provide up to 6 hours of protection against bacteria and viruses when used as directed.
Surgicept's smart patented, non-sticky formula was designed to recondition the hands and help prevent drying.
A third-party laboratory evaluated the effectiveness of two traditional hand sanitizers compared to Surgicept® at four time intervals: immediate, 30 minutes, 3 hours and 6 hours.
Study methodology: (1) Apply hand sanitizer per products direction; (2) wait for the test time interval (30 mins, 3 hrs, 6 hrs); (3) touch fingertips to contaminated surface; (4) wait 10 minutes; (5) sample sanitized fingertip. The bacteria colony forming unit growth was evaluated at each time interval.
Conclusion: All samples were effective after 15 minutes. Only Surgicept hand sanitizer continued to demonstrate efficacy up to 6 hours with no bacteria growth. Data suggests traditional sanitizers will not continue to kill germs for an extended period and frequent reapplications should be considered.
Without sanitizing protection, bacteria start reproducing on hands almost immediately. In our study, a bacteria colony began to form after just 30 minutes, demonstrating the benefit of carrying sanitizer with you wherever you go.
While the traditional sanitizers are sufficient for the first 15 minutes of the study, you can watch the bacteria beginning to multiply after just 30 minutes.
Surgicept®'s patented formula with 70% ethyl alcohol offers long-lasting germ protection and should be considered when in public for extended periods of time.

Surgicept® hand sanitizer is the same formula as Surgicept® Waterless Surgical Surgical Scrub, which has been used by surgeons and other clinicians in hospitals since it was first introduced in 2006. Surgeons, nurses and other clinicians repeatedly apply alcohol-based sanitizer solutions, whether scrubbing-in multiple times a day or between patient contact. These extreme use cases lead to dry, cracked, irritated hands. Surgicept® was formulated specifically for repeated use to counteract the drying effects of alcohol, leaving the hands soft, smooth and protected, after multiple applications per shift.
When used as directed, side effects may include local skin allergic reactions to one or more of the ingredients. It should not be used on open cuts or scrapes. Avoid rubbing in the eyes.
For best results, apply Surgicept® to clean, dry hands. Apply a sufficient amount of Surgicept® to wet all surfaces of your hands and fingers. Briskly rub your hands together until they are dry.
