The EcoHydra product range consists of hand sanitisers, hand wash, hand lotion and barrier cream.
All products in the EcoHydra range are 100% alcohol and Triclosan free and are highly effective with a demonstrable ability to kill up to 99.9999% of all common bacteria within 30 seconds of application.
Due to their unique formulations all the EcoHydra products maintain the skin’s natural moisture and suppleness and help to avoid the discomfort associated with repeated use of harsh antiseptics and alcohol used in some other formulations. The EcoHydra products are safe for multiple daily use, and are skin soothing and non-drying as well as being non-toxic and non-flammable.
BASE Technology™ is the specific proprietary formulation that differentiates EcoHydra products:
- Benzalkonium Chloride
- Aloe Vera
It is BASE Technology™ that makes the EcoHydra product range kind to the skin and highly effective against germs of all kinds, creating an exciting new hand hygiene solution for the 21st century.
The Hand Hygiene Triangle
Our range of BASE Technology™ products has a wide application within consumer, commercial and institutional markets. They present a holistic approach to the hand hygiene market and address the needs of the Hand Hygiene Triangle:
The three corners of the Hand Hygiene Triangle represent the fundamental requirements of any hand hygiene system:
Wash: Running water and a washing agent (e.g. soap) are used together to remove dirt and germs from the hands; EcoHydra Antibacterial Handwash
Sanitise: An antiseptic hand rub is used without running water to kill germs on the hands; EcoHydra Instant Hand Sanitiser
Protect: A lotion is applied to the hands to condition and moisturise them; EcoHydra Hand Lotion and EcoHydra Barrier Cream with Antibacterial Properties
EcoHydra’s greatest advantage in the repetition of this triangle is in its kindness to the skin; giving users a positive attitude to using it. U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) research suggests the number one reason for the failure of compliance with hand hygiene protocols as “healthcare workers resisting the repeated use of products that irritate and damage the skin”.
Besides many practical advantages, BASE Technology™ also offers a substantial increase in product quality and efficiency; the Instant Hand Sanitiser kills up to 99.9999% of bacteria within 15-30 seconds, using half the amount of product that typical alcohol based products require.
