Our hands represent the most common point of contact between ourselves and others, making hand hygiene a first line of flu defense and protection
Nixa, MO (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
According to the Centers for Disease Control influenza activity is high across most of the United States. Vaccination is the number one way to prevent influenza, however proper hand hygiene can help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illness like the flu. Washing with warm water and soap remains a key component of hand hygiene, but sometimes it is impractical to wash between contaminations. Selecting an alcohol-free sanitizer, like Hands First will ensure hands are cleaned and protected.
Viral illnesses like the flu are spread from person to person, most commonly through direct contact. “It is important to remember that many times co-workers come to work when they are first experiencing symptoms but are already contagious,” said Roger Huckfeldt, MD and inventor of Hands First. “Our hands represent the most common point of contact between ourselves and others, making hand hygiene a first line of flu defense and protection,” he says.
Hands First is an advanced, alcohol-free, hand sanitizer which was originally developed for healthcare workers because of its ability to effectively kill 99.99% of bacteria on contact while providing lasting protection for up to three hours without the need to reapply all without drying out or irritating skin after multiple uses a day.
“Hands First is more than just alcohol-free, the antimicrobial protection will kill bacteria and viruses that are on the hands, while the skin protectant places an invisible layer of protection on skin and wounds, helping skin treat and heal itself,” says Huckfeldt.
Now, this advanced hand sanitizer is available to the public. Hands First is available 1.7 oz. bottles, 12 oz. bottles, 20 oz. bottles and wall mounts, ensuring the hand sanitation needs of any type can be met.
