Shield yourself and your loved ones from
99.99% of harmful germs2
Germs are everywhere, and now, more than ever, we need more effective, more convenient protection for ourselves, our families and our environments.
Crystawash® 24 is a new generation foaming hand sanitiser that covers the hands with an invisible, water-proof, biostatic layer that kills germs on contact. Combining an active antimicrobial agent with a synergistic coating agent allows Crystawash® 24 to effectively bond to skin, creating a protective shield that kills 99.99% of germs2 on contact – and can keep on killing for up to 24 hours1.
The long-lasting, gentle protection of Crystawash® 24 offers real advantages over many other sanitisers. Alcohol-based hand sanitisers provide short-term germ protection and, to be effective, require reapplication every time a new surface is touched. They also contain up to 70% alcohol, which tends to strip your skin of natural oils, leaving your hands dry and chapped and prone to further contamination.
Crystawash® 24 is particularly suited to busy, health-conscious people and families. It is designed to support regular handwashing and provide you with the peace-of-mind that you are protected from germs in between washes. Crystawash® 24 provides convenient, gentle and sustained protection from harmful germs on multiple surfaces.

Crystawash 24 is a water-based formulation that is colourless, odourless and alcohol-free. It contains an antimicrobial agent, a Quaternary Ammonium Compound (QAC) named Benzalkonium Chloride, which is combined with a long-lasting coating agent. There is a synergistic action between the QAC and the coating agent resulting in prolonged germ protection.
Crystawash 24 is a long-lasting sanitiser that has 24-hour residual efficacy against germs through the synergistic pairing of the antimicrobial agent with the coating agent. The antimicrobial agent kills pathogens by puncturing their cell membranes, while the coating agent holds it onto the skin to provide prolonged protection.
Yes, all claims are supported by the successful results of our key studies:
- Kills 99.99% of germs – proven by an evaluation of the bacteria-killing activity of Crystawash 24.
- Up to 24-hour residual efficacy against germs – evidenced by testing on synthetic skin, measuring the bacteria killing effect of Crystawash 24 over 24 hours.
We tested different concentrations of the Benzalkonium Chloride and the coating agent to identify the best synergistic combination.
Use the air pump to apply foam generously onto DRY hands and gently rub until dry.
Crystawash 24 is water based and contains no alcohol or harsh chemicals. It can be used around children, pets and plants alike.
No. The sanitiser forms an invisible, germ-killing layer on the skin and will not damage clothing if it makes contact.
The formula is designed to stay on hands and keeps on working long after initial application (as opposed to alcohol-based sanitisers which are only effective at the point-of-application for a short period of time).
Crystawash 24 is not intended to replace hand washing. Its purpose is to support routine hand washing and provide peace of mind that you are protected in between washes due to the residual efficacy of the formula over an extended period of time. e.g., if you forget or are unable to wash your hands.
Crystawash 24 will gradually rub off over an extended duration of time through abrasion, natural sloughing of skin cells and through continuous hand washing.
Crystawash 24 will continue to kill germs on the skin. If you are accustomed to hand cream or alcohol-based hand sanitiser, we recommend applying these PRIOR to using Crystawash 24. If alcohol-based hand sanitisers are also used or frequent hand washing is undertaken, Crystawash 24 can be reapplied.
Immediately following application to dry hands, the skin will feel wet – but once the formula dries the skin will feel smooth and silky, with an invisible antimicrobial coating. This coating will protect the skin for up to 24-hours.
Crystawash 24 should not cause irritation as it is water-based and alcohol-free, and leaves the skin feeling smooth and moisturised. In addition, the skin will be free to function normally with no restrictions on its ability to sweat and produce oil.
Crystawash 24 has proven residual efficacy for up to 24-hours but you can continue to reapply throughout the day if you so wish.
Crystawash 24 is designed to support routine hand washing and provide you with peace-of-mind that you are protected from germs in between washes. However, particularly within high-risk environments (e.g., Health Care), more frequent application can take place if preferred.
We always recommend that people thoroughly wash their hands as part of a proper hygiene routine. Reapplication of Crystawash 24, after following proper hand-washing techniques, will ensure you will continue to be protected until you are able to wash your hands again. This is in contrast to alcohol-based hand sanitisers which are only effective at point-of-application for a short period of time.
