Go-Vi Managed Sanitising Service FAQs

It has been widely reported that to effectively limit the spread of COVID-19, hand sanitiser should be, at least, 70% alcohol based. 

At Go-Vi, we offer the best solutions available and believe safety is extremely important. So, all our sanitiser is 80% alcohol based. 

By using a stronger sanitiser, your team and your customers will able to sanitise their hands much faster and more effectively. 

Go-Vi Sanitiser is a unique, hypo-allergenic, alcohol-based hand sanitiser which is dispensed into the hands as a foam. The fast acting and highly effective formula kills 99.999% of most common germs, helping to reduce the risk of the spread of germs.

Go-Vi Sanitiser is scientifically tested to be 99.999% effective and, therefore, is:

  • 10 times better than a product that is only 99.99% effective
  • 100 times better than a product that is only 99.9% effective
  • 1,000 times better than a product that is only 99% effective
  • 10,000 times better than a product that is only 90% effective

No, Go-Vi only provide 80% alcohol, NHS-backed hand sanitising foam. 

"Why foam?" You may be asking.

Here is why:

Up to 10 times more effective — Independent laboratory tests prove that Go-Vi Sanitiser is efficacious to 99.999% against most germs and bacteria. Many alcohol gels claim efficacy at 99.99%. This means that Go-Vi Sanitiser is 10X more efficacious than many alcohol gels.

People like it — In studies, 84% of users preferred Go-Vi Sanitiser to traditional gel. Providing products that people like will result in higher frequency usage and thus the many benefits associated with proper hand hygiene.

No sticky after feel — Traditional gel style alcohol hand sanitisers feature polymer thickening agents and other ingredients that can result in a “sticky” feeling after application. Go-Vi Sanitiser does not require polymer thickeners and therefore leaves no sticky feel.

Quicker application — Complete coverage and rub-in is achieved using Go-Vi Sanitiser alcohol in less time than that required to spread and rub-in a traditional gel.

No mess — Go-Vi Sanitiser is dispensed as a foam and remains this way on the hands during the application. Alcohol gel products liquefy almost on contact with the hands, making it very difficult to manage the application without spilling or splashing.

Spreads easily — Each application of Go-Vi Sanitiser contains 1000’s of marble shaped bubbles that roll over the skin for an easy application. Gel style products simply smear over the hand, requiring a more concerted effort to complete total coverage.

Non-clogging — The various ingredients used to thicken gel hand sanitisers tend to accumulate on the tip of the dispenser and pump resulting in clogging and unpredictable dispensing, sometimes “shooting” product on to walls and floors. Since Go-Vi contains no thickening agents the risk of clogging is eliminated.

Reduced risk of “slips, trips and falls” — Go-Vi is dispensed in an appropriate portion and the foam appearance provides a visual cue to prevent excessive dispensing. Alcohol gel products are typically dispensed in much larger doses and the gel appearance makes it more difficult to determine the proper amount required, often leading to over application with the excess landing on floors, creating a potentially dangerous slip hazard for passers-by.

No residual build-up on skin — Like the problem of accumulated ingredients on the tip of the dispenser mentioned earlier, the same accumulation can occur on skin as a result of multiple applications. Each application of alcohol gel potentially adds another layer of thickening agents to skin, trapping dirt and germs. Go-Vi has no thickening ingredients and therefore multiple applications will not lead to a build up on the skin.

Effervescence — The refreshing bursting action of the 1000’s of Go-Vi bubbles help loosen dirt and dead skin cells that can harbour germs and bacteria. The static state of alcohol gel merely covers over the skin, trapping dirt and dead skin cells.
