THE EFFECTS OF DRY SKIN FROM USING HAND SANITISER

Regular hand sanitising products may contain 70% alcohol or higher. Although alcohol can kill bacteria and virus, by disrupting the cellular and viral structure, it will also dry up your skin. The second wave of the COVID-19 outbreak is taking place throughout Europe, including the UK.

OCCUPATIONAL DERMATITIS IN THE CATERING INDUSTRY

Occupational hand dermatitis in food handlers and kitchen staff is one of the main causes of ill health in the catering industry. Fifty-five percent of all skin problems in the industry are caused by contact with water, soaps and detergents, with a further 40% of cases arising from contact with food.

CAN HAND GELS HAVE A NEGATIVE EFFECT ON YOUR SKIN?

See further press coverage on how using alcohol gels can damage our skin. Gloves In A Bottle will protect hands against the drying effect of alcohol gels and our laboratory report has shown that using it does not interfere with the effectiveness of hand sanitizers.

TESTS CONFIRM GIAB DOES NOT INTERFERE WITH ALCOHOL GELS

The test product: “Gloves in A Bottle Shielding Lotion”, when applied as: 2.5ml on both clean, dry hands for 60sec total rubbing time and allowed to soak in for about 1 minute, does not inhibit the activity of the hygienic handrub product “Purell Advanced Hygienic Hand Rub”

A traditional moisturiser can potentially clog your pores, especially if it’s too rich, leading to blemishes and breakouts. Vegetable and mineral oils often clog pores by sitting on the surface of the skin, and water-soluble, vitamin-packed moisturisers can oxidize or become rancid, which may prompt breakouts.
