Crosstex International Donates Hand Sanitizer for Guinness World Record Attempt


HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. -- Crosstex International helped Canadian dental hygienist Veronica Hermiston break the Guinness World Record for the most people simultaneously flossing with one continuous string of floss. Participants were required to brush their teeth, rinse with mouthwash, and sanitize their hands prior to flossing. Crosstex provided each of the 1,146 Regina High School students with SaniTyze, a waterless moisturizing antimicrobial gel. The students went on to floss for 45 seconds on Oct. 20, 2003, breaking the record held by an Illinois group of 327. The event took place as part of Dental Hygienist's Week in Canada as a way to encourage patients to floss regularly.

SaniTyze is a mild bactericidal, antimicrobial waterless gel formulated with ethyl alcohol that is applied to hands and rubbed in. It provides fast-acting results and kills 99.99 percent of bacteria in as little as 15 seconds. SaniTyze contains aloe vera and vitamin E, which moisturize, condition, and soften the skin while also combating dryness. SaniTyze is ideal when water is not available or as a supplement to regular hand washing and is latex compatible. SaniTyze also meets the new CDC guidelines for hand hygiene.
