- Issue Time
With the increased demand on control measures for the rise in infection risks in healthcare, are you offering the best solution to reduce the risks.
Currently Alcohol based hand cleaners and sanitisers are commonly used, although there is a growing awareness that alcohol is not as effective as many would like to think especially against some of the more prevalent pathogens. It is also a known fact that alcohol is ineffective against C. diff, which is a high risk to elderly in care.
Water based products are growing in popularity, they are more effective, easier and safer to transport, can be used in a wider number of environments, suitable for all ethnic groups, don’t cause drying out of the skin in the same way as alcohol products, don’t have any fragrance and all round are generally a nicer product to use.
