3 Things You Should Know About Hand Sanitiser

The importance of personal hygiene is heightened with more mindset acceptance towards co-existence with the virus pandemic. HYSSES, a 100% botanical and child-friendly formulation combines the sanitising and disinfecting properties to protect and safeguard you and your loved ones from the evolving virus variants. Hand sanitiser has become a daily staple during COVID-19. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the humble hand sanitiser became essential to help prevent the spread of the virus when hand washing wasn't an option and continues to be the go-to sanitising option.

1. Is hand sanitiser effective against COVID-19?

One of the best ways to prevent the spread of infections and decrease the risk of getting sick is by washing your hands with plain soap and water, advises the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is essential, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing one’s nose. If soap and water are not available, CDC recommends consumers use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol. It can help you avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. The guidance for effective hand washing and use of hand sanitiser in community settings was developed based on data from a number of studies. It is also found that sanitisers with an alcohol concentration between 60–95% are more effective at killing germs than those with a lower alcohol concentration or non-alcohol-based hand sanitisers. Anything less than that may not work as well “for many types of germs,” and could “merely reduce the growth of germs rather than kill them outright,” the CDC says.

How to use hand sanitiser correctly?

Rub the hand sanitiser all over your hands, making sure to get between your fingers and on the back of your hands. Continue rubbing the hand sanitiser into your hands until your skin is completely dry — it should take about 20 seconds. Do not use hand sanitiser if your hands are visibly dirty or greasy; wash your hands with soap and water instead.
