As National Handwashing Awareness week comes to an end, Rehabmart, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, continues to emphasize the importance of clean hands by being the first to offer Hands First™, a revolutionary new non-toxic FDA-approved hand sanitizer. Hands First™ is the only alcohol-free sanitizer to be clinically tested on humans with the ability to protect hands for up to three hours according to a study conducted by John's Mercy Research Institute.
Unlike alcohol-based sanitizers which do not protect against recontamination and can sting and dry hands with repeated use, Hands-First is foam based (active ingredients of Benzalkonium 0.13% and Allantoin) and exceeds the stringent CDC Efficacy Protocol for Hand Hygiene Products for Healthcare Workers. Hands First Hand Sanitizer has a stabilized, active skin protectant which not only doesn't sting, but actually nourishes and hydrates the skin while providing protection for those minor cuts, scrapes, burns, and open skin. Hands First also has special surfactants that clean dirt and grime off skin, which is particularly helpful when soap and water are not available in remote or rural locations. In addition to cleaning, sanitizing, hydrating and protecting skin, Hands-First Hand Sanitizer is less expensive than gel-based sanitizers, which helps save costs in institutions such as hospitals, nursing homes or clinics.
“Leading-edge, scientifically proven products like Hands-First Hand Sanitizer are typical of the high-quality products offered by Rehabmart,” said Hulet Smith, CEO and founder of Rehabmart. “We are excited about this product and feel it will be a force of change in the way health care workers and the rest of us sanitize our hands.”
According to Dr. Roger Huckfeldt, Medical Director for St. John’s Research Institute and Inventor of Hands First, alcohol based sanitizers are not the best solution for health care workers. “As a Director of a Level 1 Trauma Center, my staff and I were constantly faced with the need to sanitize our skin and minimize the potential for recontamination. With repeated use, I found that most of the products on the market—like alcohol based cleansers—would dry out and crack the skin. This is not only painful, but also leaves skin vulnerable to viruses and bacteria. With Hands First, skin benefits from the 4 in 1 action: sanitize, hydrate, clean and protect all in one simple step.”
