Our Hand Sanitizers
Keeping Hand Hygiene is a MUST
Hand hygiene is important because it is one of the simplest and most effective ways to prevent the spread of infection and diseases. Our hands come into contact with various surfaces and objects throughout the day, including harmful pathogens, such as bacteria and viruses. If we touch our eyes, nose, or mouth with contaminated hands, we can quickly transfer these pathogens into our bodies, leading to illness.
Common infections like the H1N1 flu virus or the current Covid-19 can be spread through contaminated hands. This is why proper hygiene is an important first-line of defense against the spread of these viruses. The traditional soap and water is a known way to keep your hands clean and hygienic, however, this may not be easily accessible when you are looking to clean your hands. This is where compact hand sanitizers have become widely available and popular in the market today.
Hand hygiene is the key to reduce the risk of infections
Hand hygiene is cleaning one’s hands that substantially reduces potential pathogens (harmful microorganisms) on the hands. It is considered a primary measure for reducing the risk of transmitting infection among people. Hygiene and cleanliness are the utmost importance during this time of COVID-19.
Proper hand hygiene , which includes washing hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using hand sanitizer when soap and water are not readily available, can help to remove harmful pathogens from our hands and to prevent the spread of infections. The practice of good hand hygiene critical in settings such as healthcare facilities, food handling areas, and schools where the risk of infection is high. Overall, the practicing practice of good hand hygiene is an important public health measure that can help protect ourselves and those around us from infectious diseases.
When hand washing is not accessible, when you have to interact with patients directly, when your hands are in contact with body fluids, broken skin, and mucous membranes, when your hands are not visibly soiled, and when you are about to wear gloves
Yes, it is. Nobody is discounting the benefits of washing your hands. The 20-second ritual can certainly strip your palms of germs while also giving you a refreshing feeling. However, most of us are nowhere near a sink more than half the time. This is why it is good that we have the option to use an alcohol hand sanitiser. You can get rid of about the same percentage of germs and viruses while on the go.
Hand sanitizers are convenient to use when soap and water are unavailable. However, soap and water is the most effective way to remove dirt and germs when hands are visibly soiled.
Alcohol in the hand rub remains the main ingredient to eliminate microorganisms. Besides its rapid killing action, the fast-drying time is also the main plus for hand sanitizing. Many non-alcohol hand rubs contain water and dry more slowly on the hands. Without alcohol as the primary antimicrobial agent, an alcohol-free hand rub will need other active(s) substitutes. Most substitutes (e.g. chlorhexidine, benzalkonium chloride etc.) are antimicrobial but with a much slower efficacy than alcohol.
The formulation of ABHR is considered critical as antimicrobial agents, and other critical components (e.g. moisturizer) must work in tandem without compromising the chemistry within. ABHR from schullke has undergone a series of stringent tests to ensure the final product is performing as it should be – to eliminate microbes on the hands. A significant advantage is that they are formulated with skin-caring ingredients (and dermatologically tested) to protect and care for the hands when used in high frequency, especially in this pandemic period.
ABHR from schulke have undergone stringent tests to obtain European standards – EN1500 or/and EN 12791. Our ABHRs are hospital-grade and widely used in hospitals.
