How Copper Enhances Sanitizing Power

Copper, a naturally occurring element, has been used for its antibacterial properties since ancient times. Its efficacy against a broad spectrum of harmful microbes is well-documented, making it a potent ally in the fight against germs. But what exactly makes copper such a powerful sanitizing agent?

Natural Antibacterial Properties of Copper

Copper ions possess a remarkable ability to break down and destroy harmful microbes. When bacteria and viruses come into contact with copper, the ions disrupt their vital processes and inhibit their ability to proliferate.

This action is fast and effective, offering a formidable barrier against a range of pathogens. Unlike chemical sanitizers that might breed resistance over time, microbes cannot develop resistance to copper’s antimicrobial action.


  • How Copper Ions Work in Hand Sanitizers

    • When you use a copper-based hand sanitizer, the friction created by rubbing your hands on the copper surface releases ions. These ions are then transferred to your skin.
    • The copper ions penetrate the microbes on your skin, disrupting their cell membranes and affecting their vital functions, leading to their elimination.
    • This process does not rely on alcohol or other traditional sanitizer ingredients, making it a unique method of sanitation.
  • Benefits Over Traditional Ingredients

    • Unlike alcohol-based hand sanitizers that can be drying and irritating to the skin, copper provides a gentle yet effective alternative.
    • Copper hand sanitizers are sustainable; the same piece of copper can be used repeatedly, reducing waste and environmental impact.
    • The non-liquid form of copper sanitizers makes them travel-friendly and convenient for on-the-go use without the risk of spilling or leakage.
    • Copper’s continuous antibacterial action means it remains effective as long as the surface integrity is maintained, offering long-term sanitizing benefits.
  • Step-by-Step Guide to Using Your Copper Hand Sanitizer

    1. Prepare for Use

    • Begin by ensuring your hands are completely dry and free of any visible dirt or grease. This is crucial as moisture and dirt can hinder the effectiveness of the copper ions.
    • If your hands are visibly dirty, it’s important to clean them with soap and water first. This pre-cleaning step ensures that the copper sanitizer works on a clean surface, maximizing its effectiveness.

    2. Activating the Copper Ions

    • Hold the solid copper sanitizer firmly in one hand. The piece is designed to be easy to grip and use.
    • Shake it vigorously for about 15-30 seconds. This action is not just a physical preparation but also a crucial step in activating the copper ions. These ions are key to the sanitizing process.

    3. Creating Friction and Heat

    • After shaking, place your other hand over the copper sanitizer and rub your hands back and forth over its solid copper surface.
    • Continue this rubbing motion for at least 30 seconds. Make sure that you cover all areas of your hands, including palms, back of the hands, and between the fingers.
    • The goal is to generate heat through friction because heat enhances the effectiveness of copper ions in sanitizing your hands.

    4. Ensuring Complete Coverage

    • Focus on getting the copper surface to touch every part of your hand. This includes special attention to the spaces between your fingers, your fingertips, and the back of your hands.
    • It’s essential that each part of your hands experiences the warmth and touch of the copper surface to ensure thorough sanitization.

    5. Finishing the Process

    • Once you've thoroughly rubbed your hands on the copper sanitizer, stop and smell your hands. The distinct smell of copper is a sign that the copper ions have been effectively transferred to your skin.
    • Your hands are now sanitized and protected against germs.

    6. Post-Use Care

    • After use, store your Copper Hand Sanitizer in a clean, dry place. This ensures it’s ready for your next use.
    • Periodically, you should clean the copper surface with a soft, damp cloth. This maintains its effectiveness and longevity.
