Is hand soap and water enough? A healthy Hand care hygiene may start with simple hand soap and water, yet these are not enough to provide adequate protection against viruses, germs and bacteria in the complex environment. Key hotspots besides those found in a washroom, appear in our everyday work and living spaces and they include your workstation desk, the phone, photocopier, pantry fridge door and even a chair handle.

To combat the conventional idea of ‘hand soap and water is enough’, a no-touch hand sanitizer is able to encourage users to adopt this into their hand care hygiene regime with its convenience optimized with technology, making this 3-step routine possible. Engage a user optimally when a no-touch hand sanitizer is strategically placed in locations for example, in an office, a factory or even high dependent industries.  

Why we love a no-touch hand sanitizer (And you should, too!)- Besides catering for better hygiene needs by placing a hand sanitizer outside the washroom for users, a no-touch hand sanitizer is able to provide that extra protection and reassurance. Because no-touch means no surface contact, and without surface contact, there is no opportunity for bacteria on hands to result in cross contamination risks.

Furthermore, with an effective hand sanitizer which kills 99.9% of germs on hands, washroom users are reassured with top hygiene standards that eliminate any possible potential risks!
