The Saturation Of Sanitizer Market
The abundance of hand sanitizers lining shelves in retail supermarkets, pharmacies, dollar stores, department, and convenience stores should come as no surprise; since the ‘invasion’ of the Coronavirus to U.S. shores. Businesswire, a market reporting firm, states that the U.S. hand sanitizer market was valued at over two million dollars in 2020 during the height of the Covid19 pandemic, which began in March of 2020. Suffice to say: hand sanitizer manufacturing has been flowing like water to meet the consumer demand to be ‘germ-free.’
An Array Of Differences
With apologies to Theodore Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, children’s book author of One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish… Old Fish, New Fish, this one has a little car, this one has a little star — say, what a lot of fish there are . . . we poetically describe the public’s penchant for choosing and purchasing from the abundance of hand sanitizers on the open market: One sanitizer as a gel, one a liquid, one a spray, that one there composed of foam — which is the more prudent choice to take home? Oh my, oh my . . . the ingredients: one is alcohol-based, one is not . . . some natural, some organic, or synthetic . . . containers small, medium or large economy size . . . oh the array of sanitizers before one’s eyes . . . the clock is ‘a tocking and a ticking’ as the CDC and others say choice is a MUST . . . but how to know what to trust?
