New Hand Sanitizer Provides Extended Protection Against Contagions
Long-lasting SkinWear kills 99.9% of germs for up to 8-hours.
TORRANCE, Calif., September 12, 2011 – As worry over global contagions increases
and is dramatized in a new block-buster movie, “Contagion,” researchers
say the best long-term defense against the spread of germs is to stop them first
with better hand hygiene.
Graphically depicted in the upcoming film, “Contagion,” the average
person touches their face three to five times a minute, unknowingly spreading germs.
According to the CDC, “germs are often spread when people touch something
that is contaminated and then touch their eyes, nose or mouth. Germs can live a
long time (some can live for two hours or more) on surfaces like doorknobs, desks
Contagion experts, including Dr. Judy Daly of the American Society of Microbiology,
agree the best defense against dangerous germs is frequent and thorough hand washing,
yet even they say this not enough.
Unfortunately, most people don’t wash their hands often enough to kill the
everyday germs they come in contact with and when they do wash their hands, they
don’t do it long enough. The CDC recommends using a hand sanitizer in addition
to hand washing, however, most instant hand sanitizers are alcohol-based and have
no residual germ-killing effect. Once the alcohol evaporates, (in about 15 seconds),
hands can become infected again with any touch. Until recently, nothing existed
on the market that offered long-lasting germ protection. Now, a product by SKWPartners,
called SkinWear, can make a difference in contagion control. This alcohol-free,
FDA compliant hand sanitizer kills germs up to 8-hours with one application. Using
proprietary technology, SkinWear protects between hand washings, as well and keeps
hands clean and moisturized; the best defense against dangerous germs.
