Importance of clean hands throughout the day
Last October 15, the 5th Global Handwashing day was celebrated all around the world. There were lots of people who are unfortunately still doesn’t have any idea on the importance of washing hands every now and then.
I am afraid that some schools specially public schools don’t provide enough washing areas at the canteens and even the bathrooms. Experts have discovered that there are more germs in the school’s water fountain, cafeteria and school computers than in restrooms. These harmful bacteria in schools can lead to diarrhea, abdominal pains and serious kidney difficulties.
Mommies, I know we don’t want our children to get sick as much as possible and we want to protect them from any form of harm. So, if the schools can’t provide the necessary areas for them to clean their hands often, then we should give them hand sanitizers to supplement regular hand-washing and they can use it anywhere and anytime they need
But wait, before you go buy a hand sanitizer, you must know that it should not be just any ordinary hand sanitizers since I have also learned that hand sanitizers lose the ability to kill bacteria and other foreign materials once dry. Also, studies have been done proving that hand sanitizers are not effective unless it contains at least 60% alcohol.
Is there any hand sanitizer out there that can protect us from germs 24 hours a day? Good news is that, a better innovation has finally been invented and that is Hygiene 24. It doesn’t only kills but also protects you against bacteria, 24 hours a day, with a single application. Isn’t that great!
About Hygiene 24
Hygiene 24 is a state-of-the-art technology and is unlike any product for topical skin application on the market today. On application to the hands, an antimicrobial, polymeric film is formed which is substantive and will remain through a minimum of ten hand washings. The unique HD5™ film formed on application of Hygiene 24 retains its broad spectrum antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal activity for up to 24 hours or more. It derives its antimicrobial activity through contact with the pathogen and causing disruption of the pathogens cellular wall, a process termed lysis. The HD5™ film is not incorporated into the pathogen cell and therefore no increased drug type resistance by the pathogen is acquired. The HD5™ ingredient contains a harmless silicon material that orients to the skin surface during application to produce a protective, moisturizing film.
HD5™, the active ingredient, is totally unique in structure, effectiveness, persistence and application. It is a material which chemically combines proven antimicrobial chemistry with the protective, moisturizing capabilities of silicones in a single molecular compound. The water soluble HD5™ transforms to an invisible macropolymeric, polyionic layer on application to the skin which is not removed by repeated hand washing or rinsing. Not being removed by water, Hygiene 24 offers continuing antimicrobial protection coupled with long term moisturizing qualities. Hygiene 24 kills not only bacteria, but also viruses and fungi which can cause ringworm, and fungal nail infections. Application to the skin not only kills and inactivates bacteria, viruses and fungi, but also prevents reinfection. Hygiene 24 does not build or increase antibacterial or antimicrobial resistance in pathogens on repeated or prolonged use.
