Hand sanitisers and hand washing is playing a significant role in protection during the pandemic; however, the frequency is causing havoc for our hands. According to the British Skin Foundation, since the pandemic started 56% of children are experiencing some type of skin problem associated with their hands, 24% suffering from eczema due to increased washing/sanitising. And according to the British Association of Dermatologists repeated exposure to the use of alcohol hand gels and soap/water can cause what is known as irritant contact dermatitis – a form of eczema.
Alcohol strips away sebum and lipids that guard against bacterial infections of the skin. Extensive use of alcohol-based hand sanitisers actually increases the skin’s susceptibility to infection. Alcohol-based sanitisers also stop working the instant they dry & studies show that alcohol-based hand sanitisers offer no residual protection?
Studies also show that alcohol-based hand sanitisers actually become less effective with repeated use and made the skin dirtier, due to removal of protective natural skin oils and entrapment of dead skin cells by the thickeners in the products ingredients.
SOS PROTECT HAND SANITISER, 300ML PUMP, £15
SOS PROTECT is a Benzalkonium Chloride-based hand sanitiser, which has several distinct advantages over alcohol-based hand sanitisers:
- SOS Protect dries slightly slower than alcohol-based hand sanitisers allowing more efficacious coverage.
- Benzalkonium Chloride-based hand sanitisers have a greater sustained antibacterial activity than alcohol-based ones, meaning they kill bacteria for longer (up to 3 hours!)
- They become more effective after repeated use without causing irritation to the skin, making them perfect for the winter months, and for those with skin irritations like eczema.
SOS Protect was developed to provide prolonged skin protection and has built in moisturising properties. Repeated use of SOS Protect allows the product to build up a protective microbial barrier which minimises the risk of cross infection. Plus it kills 99.9% of bacteria, is vegan, and cruelty-free.
