There are more than 10 million germs on the average hand, which is why washing them is not only a question of hygiene but a proven lifesaver.
Germs on hands can promote colds, influenza, skin infections, and even food poisoning – particularly if you don’t wash them after going to the toilet. And the real nasties here are MRSA, E.Coli, Bird Flu, Norovirus and SARS.
A typical high street hand sanitiser kills just 99.9% of germs, which can leave at least 10,000 bacteria still breeding and being passed along from person to person.
EcoHydra Instant Hand Sanitiser has say the makers been proven to be 100 times more effective at killing bugs and bacteria. It zaps 99.9999% of germs, and can leave no more than just 10 germs on hands; making it an extremely effective hand sanitiser with proven efficacy against E. Coli, SARS, Bird Flu, MRSA and Norovirus
With its completely alcohol-free, antimicrobial formula, EcoHydra is free from the harshness of alcohol-based sanitisers which can dry out the skin, and with frequent use leave hands even more exposed to germs. Enriched with natural moisturiser Aloe Vera, EcoHydra can be used repeatedly throughout the day making it pleasant to use as well as highly effective.
The benefits of using an alcohol-free hand sanitiser:
Alcohol is dangerous and can be a fire hazard! EcoHydra’s Instant Hand Sanitiser does not contain alcohol and therefore poses no risk to patients.
EcoHydra Instant Hand Sanitiser quickly (air) dries naturally leaving no sticky residue on the skin and remains actively germ killing, unlike alcohol based products.
During a Clostridium difficile outbreak (a type of bacterial infection that can affect the digestive system), hand hygiene protocol requires hospital staff to cease using alcohol based products as alcohol does not kill the Clostridium infection, and in certain tests even causes a rise in the number of viable spores.
Alcohol dries skin and creates an environment for bacterial growth. EcoHydra’s Instant Hand Sanitiser is kind to the skin and maintains the natural pH to keep skin supple and hygienic.
Alcohol is not effective against Norovirus orAcenitobacter(which causes a variety of diseases, ranging from pneumonia to serious blood or wound infections). EcoHydra’s active ingredient is effective against both micro-organisms.
EcoHydra is also the preferred cleanser at NASA where it was chosen for use in the astronauts’ foodpreparation areas.
