Why it is necessary to know how to properly sanitize and how to subdivide the forms.

Sanitizing our hands is a basic need in our daily lives as of present. In addition to removing dirt, sweat, oil and possible bacteria from human skin, it also acts to prevent contamination and disease transmission.

The effectiveness in guaranteeing hands free of contaminants varies according to the time and the technique used and it is important to pay attention to some small details before starting the process, such as: removing any items that may accumulate residues, such as rings, bracelets and watches.

Sanitation can be classified into three types:

Simple Sanitation:

Removes the microorganisms that colonize the superficial layers of the skin, as well as sweat, oil and dead cells, removing the dirt conducive to the permanence and proliferation of microorganisms.

Antiseptic Friction (Alcohol Preparations)

Reduces the microbial load of the hands (dirt is not removed). The use of hand sanitizer – preferably 70%, or 70% liquid alcohol solution with 1%-3% glycerin, can replace cleaning with water and soap when the hands are not visibly dirty.

Antiseptic Sanitation:

It promotes the removal of dirt and microorganisms, reducing the microbial load of the hands, with the aid of an antiseptic.

Remember that we at Santher Professional have several products in our portfolio to meet each of the needs listed above. Just access the CHEMICALS section here on our website.
