Cleantec Innovation develops new alcohol-free hand sanitiser certified to kill enveloped viruses
A newly developed alcohol-free foaming hand sanitiser which is certified to be effective against harmful bacteria and viruses with a 99.99% kill rate has been launched by Cleantec Innovation.
ViroGuard Alcohol-Free Anti-Bacterial Foaming Hand Sanitiser passes the requirements of BS EN 1276 and BS EN 13727 for bactericidal activity, BS EN 14476 for viricidal activity, BS EN 1500 for hygienic handrub and BS EN 13624 for yeasticidal activity offering vital protection to the public.
The innovative foaming formulation is proven to kill both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and enveloped viruses (of which Coronavirus is) to a level of 99.99%.
Free from strong alcohols, quats, fragrances or dyes, ViroGuard anti-bacterial foaming hand sanitiser does not dry out the hands or sting on application making this hand sanitiser ideal for frequent, daily use.
Based in Sandwich, Kent, Cleantec Innovation is known primarily as the manufacturer and supplier of the Envirodri dry carpet cleaning system as well as biological cleaning chemicals. However, taking into account the current situation with Covid-19 and increasing requests from customers the company has taken the pragmatic approach to offer hand sanitisers and surface disinfection products as an add on to its services.
With demand for hand sanitisers currently exceeding the capacity of available alcohol-based production, Cleantec wanted to offer an alternative that is not limited by current supply chain restrictions and, above all, is fully tested and certified to exceed the performance of standard hand sanitiser products.
The product is available in a range of sizes including 50ml, 150ml and 600ml plus five-litre eco-refill packs, wall brackets and automatic touch-free dispensers, as well as the option for private label.
Cleantec Innovation knows that excessive use of alcohol-based products can have an extremely detrimental effect on a person's skin so wanted to bring to market a product that not only kills harmful bacteria and viruses, but one that will also not dry, damage or crack the skin with frequent use.
The company has ensured that its offering to businesses - both large and small, meets the demands of the current marketplace and most importantly, will help play a part in reducing the spread of infection.
