What are the active ingredients of Oy Hand Hygiene as a hand cream?
Oy Hand Hygiene is a hand cream and contains a blend of active substances that have antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. Thus, the hands become pure when using the hand cream and this for a longer period.
In addition, we have paid a lot of attention to the nourishing and restorative effect of dry oils, among other things. The cream does not stick after massaging it in and is therefore ideal for use on public transport, in shops, when visiting restaurants, in short, everywhere where hygiene is important.
Keep the compact dispenser in your pocket, bag or in the car and use this care several times a day.
Are you supposed to still use an alcohol gel?
Alcohol gel with a minimum alcohol content of 70% has a strong "instant" disinfecting effect. 80% is recommended for the healthcare department. It is necessary to rub 3 ml on all parts of the hands for 20 to 30 seconds. Alcohol works for a short time because it evaporates and then only a gel layer remains.
So alcohol has a very good disinfecting effect, but due to the evaporation of alcohol all moisture is removed from the skin and the skin barrier is also seriously disrupted.
It has been known for years that alcohol is and remains the ideal disinfectant for surfaces, but it is really not skin-friendly. That is why we aimed at Oy for an innovative solution which can also be used when soap and water are not available.
Washing your hands regularly and thoroughly is the best rule of thumb. The Covid-19 virus and most other viruses or bacteria have a fat membrane around the core. Soap, in combination with friction, will dissolve this fat membrane, causing the virus or bacteria to disintegrate and be eliminated. So washing hands when soap and water is available is definitely recommended, such as before eating, after touching door handles, after going to the bathroom ...
How long will this dispenser last?
We have ensured that 1x pumping is sufficient for both hands so that you can use the pump 100x with 30ml. If your hands feel dry and rough or painful cracks and chaps appear, we suggest to massage your hands well several times a day. The effect of squalane will give you a baby skin. Because squalane is a skin's own substance that is very much present in the baby's skin and ensures softness and suppleness. In short, with Oy you can really pamper your hands.
When you are at home, the best solution is to wash your hands and afterwards you can massage the Oy hand cream for a perfect nourishing effect.
Why doesn't the cream smell like alcohol?
Simply because we work with other active substances that do not dry out the skin at all and protect the skin barrier instead of breaking it down.
Nevertheless, we have a very good effect proven by our clinical tests.
It is true that you may have the impression that your hands are not clean but this is just the feeling or the missing smell of alcohol. Alcohol is not the only "disinfectant" that provides disinfection, there are also several safe disinfectants that receive too little attention due to the widely distributed alcohol gels.
