If you’re reading this, you might be a parent of two or three young children. Sometimes it can feel really stressful taking care of little ones, especially during the pandemic. 😓
As parents ourselves, we feel your pain and worry too. It’s okay to be anxious, it just shows you care a lot for your children. After all, they’re still young and need guidance. 👼🏻
So, to help protect your family from bacteria (and Covid-19), we made a surface sanitizer to keep your home a safe haven for your family. Here’s what you need to know about BerryC’s sanitizer spray and why it is different from alcohol-based sanitizers.
Like its name suggests, a surface sanitizer is useful for cleaning surfaces. Our sanitizer is a 3 in 1 action surface sanitizer that instantly cleans, coats and protects any surface it is sprayed on. 💪
Why is it important to protect the sprayed surface? It’s because germs and microbes can return to sanitized surfaces that do not have protection. Our sanitizer spray solves this problem. To top it off, we’ve also created a floral scent that gets rid of foul odour in your room. 🦨
So, what happens when you spray?
The unique formulation with anti-pathogen coating starts bonding to the surface creating a protective shield with micro needles to protect against bacteria. This shield can last up to 28 days protection and repels most contaminants.
This means you don’t have to keep spraying everyday to minimize bacteria in your home – it lightens your workload and daily chores.
Throughout the 28 days, our surface disinfectant remains extremely effective at disinfecting surfaces, as it is highly capable of killing 99.99% of Coronavirus and microbes. 🎯
Compared to water-based sanitizers, most alcohol-based sanitizers commonly only last up to 1 hour of protection. This means you’ll need to put in MORE work to clean your house. So, why not choose something more maintenance-friendly instead? 🙂
Here’s something you might not know. If you have sensitive skin, alcohol-based surface sanitizers could work against your favour. Its chemical substance can cause skin irritations or damage to your skin cells. So, save yourself the worry, and get a water-based surface disinfectant. 👍
Higher alcohol content makes it easier for you to contract an allergic reaction on your skin. Although it can be hard to pinpoint which exact ingredient causes skin irritations, it can be easily narrowed down to three ingredients: alcohol, methanol, fragrances and dyes.
Here’s how skin irritation is caused. When the alcohol comes into contact with your skin, it breaks down your skin’s protective barrier of natural oils, and allows allergens into the bloodstream.
For this reason, if you have sensitive skin, you might experience an immediate or later reaction in the form of eczema that is itchy, cracked, burning and inflamed skin. 🔥
Here’s another plus point about BerryC’s sanitizer, it’s a multi-surface sanitizer. It is versatile enough to be sprayed onto a wide variety of objects and spaces to keep your environment clean (this includes using it as a kitchen sanitizer). 🧹
Yes, it’s true alcohol-based sanitizers can also be used for multiple objects and areas. But if you use it regularly on certain items such as your phone’s touch-screen, you might risk discoloration or damage to your phone over time.
Alcohol-based disinfectants can also corrode other items in your house made from stainless steel and may cause plastic-material items to swell or harden.
A water-based surface sanitizer, like BerryC, doesn’t come with these set of problems.
In fact, we’ve tried our sanitizer sprays on the following areas and objects in the list below, and guess what? It works effectively well! 👍
You can use BerryC’s spray for:
Bonus: Did you know you can also use BerryC as a hand sanitizer?
Most germs can stay alive on your hands for 3 hours. Given that our sanitizer is a multi-surface sanitizer, it counters this problem spot-on. You can use it to sanitize for your hands, offering you up to 4 hours of protection! 🕑
Aside from the above, BerryC’s surface sanitizer can protect your baby or kindergarteners who have a habit of putting things in their mouth. It’s specially made for families, after all.
So, after testing our sanitizer at 5000Mg/Kg, the oral intake is safe if your child consumes it by accident. As such, it is a baby-friendly disinfectant. When compared to most alcohol-based surface sanitizers, the alcohol chemical elements aren’t child-safe at all. 🙅♀️
If your child swallows the chemical contents in an alcohol-based sanitizer, it can potentially cause poisoning. Noticeable symptoms of alcohol poisoning include: sleepiness, low blood sugar, seizures and coma. Let’s dive deeper into this.
The cause of the poisoning stems from alcohol contents containing ethyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol or benzalkonium alcohol (Purell and Germ-X). Approximately 60–65% of ethyl alcohol are commonly found in sanitizers, which is a very high amount, especially for your baby or young children. 👶
Did you know that alcohol-based chemicals have a toxic and hazardous impact on the environment when released by evaporation?
Harmful antibacterial additives are often used in alcohol-based sanitizers including chemicals like triclocarban (TCC) and triclosan (TCS). 🧪
TCC and TCS are dangerous to our environment because of their inability to degrade easily, and are often found in the form of a sludge which can clog our sewage or wastewater treatment plants.
Lastly, alcohol-based surface sanitizers are mainly made up of ethanol, isopropyl alcohols and hydrogen peroxides. These substances can become toxic to our environment when misused.
In comparison, water-based surface sanitizers do not use such chemicals. For example, BerryC’s sanitizer uses quaternary ammonium compound (QAC), polymeric compound, natural plant extract and water. As such, it is a toxic-free and green product to use for your home. 🏠
All our sanitizers are laboratory-tested and strictly certified. Below are the following tests that we have conducted:

For these reasons above, we believe that water-based sanitizers win this round – it’s a total knockout! 🥊
