What is Hello Go™ hand and cup sanitising spray?

Hello Go™ provides a barrier to bacteria for up to 24 hours.  Spray onto a dry Hello Cup™ or Hello Disc™ and allow to dry. A single application every 24 hours forms an invisible barrier shield on the skin or surface. Works by forming a layer of microscopic "pins" which attract, pierce and kill pathogens. The same principle as a pin popping a balloon. Also, this means that the pathogens cannot reform.  Traditional sanitizers kill bacteria by poison or high alcohol content. Hello Go™ is alcohol-free and safe for food and surfaces (not just cup/disc and hands). Non drying - doesn't cause chapped skin. Hello Go™ has a pH of 6.9. Water is classified as neutral at pH7. When it is dry on the cup it forms a layer which is bound to the surface of the cup and doesn't leach into the vagina.
