Alcohol rub is formulated to protect against flu

JohnsonDiversey : 09 November, 2007  (New Product)
JohnsonDiversey’s SoftCare Med is an effective alcohol hand rub that is proven to protect against contagious bacteria, fungi and viruses including flu.
Like many viruses flu can strike before an infected person is aware they have the illness. Infected people can pass flu on to others up to 24 hours before their own symptoms emerge. This means that even healthy looking people can be carrying the virus. People that come into regular contact with lots of others, in the service industries for example, need to be aware of the risks and what they can do to minimise them.

SoftCare Med is a versatile and easy to use gel product that is widely used in the health sector. The gel’s formulation includes two different forms of alcohol that work together as an efficient disinfectant that is highly effective against resident and transient skin micro organisms such as bacteria, fungi and viruses.

SoftCare Med is compliant with EN1500 - the accepted standard for hand disinfection products - at 30 seconds. The gel has been formulated with a thickening agent that creates a higher viscosity to promote a longer skin contact time, giving the active ingredients maximum time to do their work. The addition of a moisturising agent ensures skin care.

The constituents have an unpleasant taste and distinctive odour that minimises the risk of abuse. The 24 degrees C flashpoint ensures the product is only classified as flammable unlike many other hand disinfection products.

SoftCare Med is available in a number of formats designed to promote the ease of use that supports high standards of hand hygiene. A personal issue pack includes an 80ml disposable bottle with integral pump that clips on to clothing or belts and will always be ready for instant use.

The Soft Care Line system includes hermetically sealed cartridges that prevent contamination by hand or airborne bacteria and a patented bellows pump to simplify dispensing. Each cartridge contains 800ml, enough for about 800 shots and can be changed in seconds to save valuable time. Cartridge and pump are disposed of when finished to minimise the risk of clogging and cross-contamination. All components can be recycled.

For ward use Soft Care Med is available in 500ml bottles with integral pumps. These can be used as stand alone items or placed in a specially designed bracket for mounting on patient beds.

SoftCare Med is ideal for hygienic hand disinfection and should be used in conjunction with a mild hand cleanser such as Soft Care Soft. It can also be used as a single stage product on clean hands.
