Cleanliness and good hand hygiene are essential to minimising the spread of infection. By now, we are all well aware of the 20-second handwashing guidance and how to wash our hands thoroughly.
But what about those times when you do not have access to soap and water? When you are out and about or on the job, your best line of defence — alongside our reusable medical silicone face mask and replacement filters — is an effective hand sanitiser.
There are plenty of hand sanitisers on the market, but do they work for viruses like COVID-19? Hand sanitiser needs to contain an alcohol percentage of at least 60% to kill germs, such as bacteria and viruses, effectively.
Our Steriline hand sanitiser gel with 75% alcohol can be used to effectively sanitise hands when there is no soap or water available. Unlike many hand gels, the practical, non-sticky formula also contains glycerin, meaning it will not dry out the skin or cause irritation (even with frequent use).
