fiteBac SkinCare’s booth at the APIC meeting was continuously swarmed by infection preventionists interested in finding a hand sanitizer that was gentler on the skin. The three-day APIC conference helped introduce fiteBac SkinCare Germicidal Hand Softening Gel to infection preventionists and health care professional end users. fiteBac’s Hand Softening Gel is a popular alcohol-free, water-free, petroleum-free and fragrance-free sanitizer developed to help maintain soft hands while following good hand hygiene practices.
fiteBac SkinCare demonstrated the hand sanitizer’s cutting-edge technology to very curious infection preventionists, many of whom expressed their surprise and pleasure with how soft and silky the product made their hands feel. It’s a revolutionary, silicone-based co-cross polymer formulation that leaves hands feeling silky smooth even after frequent glove changing, application of other alcohol-based hand sanitizers, or hand washing. fiteBac’s unique formulation helps overcome compliance issues faced by medical and hospital communities from traditional alcohol-based hand sanitizers that can dry and damage skin. Silky hands while sanitizing rendered fiteBac’s booth popular at the annual scientific meeting. The overwhelmingly positive response has lead to fiteBac’s early announcement of plans to attend APIC’s Annual Educational Conference & International Meeting at the Ft. Lauderdale Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale, FL in 2013.
