How does it work?

When a germ comes in contact with copper, the copper causes the outer membrane of the germ to rupture. Once ruptured, the germ’s cell contents interact with the copper and their function is destroyed, thus killing the germ.

What is CopperTouch™ made of?

CopperTouch is made of 99.9% Antimicrobial copper.

So do I still need to wash my hands with soap and water?

CopperTouch™ is NOT meant as a total replacement for hand washing, however,  when it is not readily accessible, your chemical-free CopperTouch can be.

Will I really be germ-free in 60 second if I use this product?

The friction created by rubbing the CopperTouch on the skin escalates the germ killing process as opposed to “Petri dish” type results. Lab testing results indicate that the effect starts in seconds and the microbes die within about a minute. Copper will also leave ions (or atoms) on the skin, which may continue killing microbes for minutes.

Well, why can't i just use a bunch of pennies?

Pennies are now (and have been for a while) only 2.5% copper and the balance is 97.5% zinc. Also, there is the aesthetic appeal and convenience of our Sani-Disc and Sani-Bar products.

Is it necessary to sterilize it after use?

Because of its inherent microbe killing properites, (including bacteria and viruses) the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that copper is self-sanitizing, meaning; copper sterilizes itself. Test results by the EPA and independent labs show that dangerous germs just don’t survive on 99.9% copper.

How do I use the Sani-Bar or Sani-Disc?

Instructions for Use:

Rub hands for at least one full minute. As you would when washing with soap and water, get in between and tips of fingers, palms and the backsides of your hands. Do not use if you have Wilsons Disease or allergies to metal. Lotion or other coatings of skin can stand in the way of copper’s antimicrobial effect on germs.

What types of germs does it kill?

CopperTouch™ will kill or destroy most common germs such as E.coli, MRSA (pronounced mersah) and VRSA (pronounced versah), Norovirus, Salmonella and Listeria as some examples.

What comes with the Sani-Bar/Sani-Disc?

Your CopperTouch product comes in a velvet carrying pouch with a soft cleaning cloth; included cleaning case, and various recipes for chemical free cleaning options. A brochure with the research science is also included that explains how and why it works.

What can I clean CopperTouch™ with?

Copper naturally tarnishes which will not alter its capabilities. It can be cleaned quickly and easily with simple solutions of water and vinegar; water, lemon juice and salt; ketchup, or a store bought cleaner. We have provided you with a case to clean it in.

Will CopperTouch™ stay shiny?

Copper naturally tarnishes. Its natural discoloration will not inhibit its antimicrobial properties. If you would like the copper to shine like the day you receive it, we have included a cleaning case and recipes for natural cleaners that are chemical free.
