What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


The need for more stringent personal hygiene is definitely a reality now for many people, especially given the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. It’s advisable to stay home as much as possible to limit your risk of being exposed to the virus, but of course it’s not possible to be at home ALL the time. Keeping a portable container of Purell hand sanitizer with you is good choice for anyone who’s job takes them out of the home during these times, as well as for anyone who is making necessary trips.

Being one of the more well known brands of hand sanitizer, Purell is based on the same formula that all instant sanitizer gels or wipes are - a very high alcohol content of around 65% and usually isopropyl alcohol, ethanol (ethyl alcohol) or n-propanol.

Being exposed to the alcohol kills germs and viruses, and the appeal of Purell hand sanitizer is with one quick squirt and then a quick and vigorous wiping of your hands you’re good to continue on without worries about introducing the virus molecules to your mouth or nose inadvertently.

This is particularly important in a number of common everyday interactions you may be having these days. Handling door handles is a big one, and so is when you use the pump at the gas station when refuelling a vehicle. Items in stores will have been handled by others before you, and another one is using ATMs. These are just a few of the instances where you’ll be better off having some Purell hand sanitizer with you.

Clean Hands and Clean Surfaces

It’s estimated that the average person can touch their face a couple of thousand times a day. Most would never guess the number of times would be that high, but it’s a very good fact to consider when you weight the importance of using a product like Purell hand sanitizer at this time. The coronavirus can be inhaled, but it can also be self-introduced by someone who touches a surface with the virus on it when they touch their face after.

Add to this the way children are even more inclined to touch their faces or put their fingers in their mouth or nose. That’s another good reason to keep Purell hand sanitizer with if you’ve got no choice but to be out with the kids while the world is still trying to get a grip on the virus. The hand sanitizer gel can be used to disinfect hands and fingers, but it can also be used to sterilize surfaces.

A better choice for that would be Purell hand sanitizer wipes that can be wiped on hands or across surfaces like smartphones, steering wheels, purse handles, or even disposable eating utensils. Purell foam hand sanitizer may the best choice for use around home, and keeping some hand sanitizer near the front door for use as soon as you come in may be a good idea too.

You’ll be able to buy Purell hand sanitizer at any drug store, pharmacy, or supermarket and you may be able to find the convenient pocket-sized hand sanitizers at convenience stores too.
