We run a parrot rescue and sanctuary where we take in birds of unknown health status. We use Gentle Care exclusively now, finding it an excellent value versus our previous brand, and the customer service is stellar.
This product is far superior to alcohol-based products in so many ways. Where I work (at my paid job as an RN) I am forced to use the alcohol-based rubs. My hands suffer, becoming cracked and peeling. This creates a much greater risk for harboring pathogens. The alcohol rubs are only effective UNTIL THEY DRY (which is almost immediately) yet this product has a residual effect where the hands remain protected for two hours.
At our sanctuary, we have dispensers in all bird care areas and the public restroom. We will continue to use and to recommend the use of this product.
