Much like sanitizing wipes and toilet paper, hand sanitizer has been flying off of shelves so quickly that it’s tough for retailers to fulfill demand. And while Purell hand sanitizer is a hot ticket item, other premium companies are popping up.

Case in point: You can score a 12-pack of 4-ounce Medex Hand Sanitizer, which has the same formulation as Purell, for $40. This breaks down to about $3 per four-ounce bottle with free shipping at Amazon.

Manufactured in the U.S.A., Medex follows the CDC guidelines for killing 99.99 percent of germs and bacteria, including coronavirus. And when you just can’t get to soap and water, the potent hand sanitizer is an excellent way to keep your hands clean.

Medex is one of the largest manufacturers of hand sanitizer in the U.S. Each bottle contains pharmaceutical grade goo that’s made from 70 percent alcohol for effectiveness. The hand sanitizer contains plant oils and skin conditioners for a gentle glide across your hands, too.

“Germs begone! The sanitizer has a very light scent, so luckily no obnoxious I-smell-like-a-walking-candy-shop smell,” writes a delighted five-star reviewer. “The small bottles are perfect to split up. We got one in the car, in our bags and we might even include one in an upcoming gift package for a friend. People nowadays truly appreciate hand sanitizer! Overall very happy with this product.”
