Virucidal foam hand sanitiser
22 April 2016
Deb Group has launched Deb InstantFOAM Complete, which it says is the world’s first alcohol-based foam hand sanitiser that is proven to be fully virucidal, bactericidal and yeasticidal.
The perfume free and dye free formula is dispensed as soft-structured foam and is designed for use without water to provide a complete solution for hand sanitising by combining its highly effective broad spectrum biocidal efficacy with safety and user preference.
Deb InstantFOAM Complete kills 99.999% of many common germs in just 15 seconds and its non-specific biocidal action ensures there is no risk of antimicrobial resistance. The product meets the highest levels of European microbiological standards for bactericidal (EN1500), virucidal (EN14476), yeasticidal (EN1650) and mycobactericidal (EN14348) activity.
Part of the new Deb Stoko Range, Deb InstantFOAM Complete has been created to provide the highest level of hand hygiene in sensitive environments, such as the food industry, but also germ transfer ‘hot-spots’ in general workplaces and public facilities.
In the food industry, from restaurant kitchens through to food handling and manufacturing facilities, Deb InstantFOAM Complete can be used to prevent the spread of pathogens found on raw meats and other food products, protecting both staff and consumers from food-transmitted infections. The formula has been independently tested and assessed by experts to demonstrate that it is non-tainting and does not influence the quality and safety of food products.
Extensive dermatological testing has proven the product to have good skin compatibility and is declared to be ‘hypoallergenic’; clinical testing, based on a High Frequency Usage Study using 48 applications per day for 5 days, proves the product to prevent skin dryness and have no adverse effect on skin condition.
Furthermore, independent research has shown that 84% of users prefer the foam format of Deb InstantFOAM Complete compared to alcohol-based gels because it is non-sticky and fast drying, plus it incorporates moisturisers which leave the skin feeling soft and refreshed after use.
