A New Jersey based company, Matguard USA (http://MatguardUSA.com) is used to hearing about skin bacteria and virus issues. However, it is usually coming from Coaches, Parents and Educators who are concerned about skin disease in wrestling, Karate, mixed martial arts and other contact sports. Lately, due to mounting concerns over Ebola and the Enterovirus, they are gaining a huge sales increase from a wide range of individuals and Companies who are very concerned about prevention and disinfection.

The concerns regarding Ebola have many people asking what they can do for prevention purposes. Erinn Madsen, A San Francisco based retail associate concurs, "Everyone at our store is concerned whenever someone coughs or sneezes. I'd rather be safe than sorry, so I use the body wipes throughout the day just to be safe."

Matguard manufacturers Body Wipes (http://matguardusa.com/matguard-body-wipes.html), which are already used by tens of thousands of Athletes to aid in the prevention of skin infections. Now, Matguard has seen a tremendous spike in sales over the past couple of weeks to the medical, nursing, and first responder community.

"Everyone is concerned, and many people feel that they need to be better prepared,” said Tom Bunge, President of Matguard USA. "There are a lot of nervous people concerned about the spread of Ebola.”

"I understand the people on the front lines (Nurses, Medical staff, Policemen, Firemen and EMS staff) who are ordering our Body Wipes," added Heather Neff, Vice President of Research at Matguard USA. "But we are getting just as many orders from school teachers, travelers, retail workers and others that have jobs that require person to person contact. All of them are expressing concerns about bacteria and viruses.”

Matguard USA has been manufacturing a patented high level alcohol antiseptic body wipe for the past eight years that has been sold into thousands of high schools, health clubs, medical facilities and other organizations. The product has a proprietary formula that prevents drying on the skin but delivers the benefits of 70-75% Isopropyl Alcohol. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a high concentration of alcohol (62% or greater) has proven to be very effective at killing harmful germs and bacteria. However, the Company cautions that no chemical has been approved to use a kill claim on the strain of Ebola that is ravaging West Africa and causing fear around the world.

Added Bunge, “Based on what I have seen the past week since news of Ebola has been everywhere, people are not taking any chances."

The patented skin and body protection product line by Matguard USA includes Body Wipes, Antiseptic Go-Packs, as well as Body Cleansing Sprays and Foams that assist in the protection of attaining potentially dangerous skin infections.
