DUBLIN, Ga., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- With the rise of germs such as MRSA and viruses, cleansing the hands among healthcare workers and the general public at large is crucial. Cleansing of the hands is very important because clean hands can control the spread of germ-borne illnesses that can be transported, therefore avoiding sickness and saving lives.

Just in Time for Back-to-School and Flu Season

 

Dr. Jacqueline Owusu, the founder and owner of Dr. Owusu Skincare, LLC, advocates the washing of hands with soap and water; however, in some instances that choice is not as convenient and using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer is an excellent option. The problem people have today with the leading alcohol-based hand sanitizers is the drying effect of the alcohol on the hands, leaving them cracked and rough.

Using her background and knowledge as a physician and a biochemist, Dr. Owusu has formulated an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, SaniTyze, that contains a conditioning ingredient. SaniTyze not only cleanses but moisturizes, keeps the hands soft and has a pleasant fragrance as well.


 

"I knew firsthand by my work in healthcare that there was a need for an alternative to sanitizers that dried the hands, so I spent eight months researching and came up with SaniTyze," commented Dr. Owusu.

Among the applications for this product are school environments and anywhere there is risk for flu. According to the experts at http://www.cdc.gov, "It is best to wash your hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. However, when water is not available, you can use alcohol-based hand products made for washing hands (sanitizers).

"Examples of when to wash or sanitize your hands include:

  • Before preparing or eating food
  • After going to the bathroom
  • After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has gone to the bathroom
  • Before and after caring for someone who is sick
  • After handling uncooked foods, particularly raw meat, poultry, or fish
  • After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • After handling an animal or animal waste
  • After handling garbage
  • Before and after treating a cut or wound
  • After handling items contaminated by flood water or sewage"

 

In conclusion, instead of avoiding alcohol-based hand sanitizers because of the drying problem, one should try Dr. Owusu's SaniTyze, which not only kills the germ-borne illnesses but conditions, softens and protect the hands, ultimately decreasing diseases and saving lives.
