Ah yes, the act of washing our hands. We either do it or we don’t, depending on whether we’re in a hurry or have adequate soap and warm water, right? Washing hands is one of the best ways to defend against sickness and spread germs, so I hope you do take the time to scrub up.
In a 2018 survey conducted by the Bradley Corporation, only two-thirds of 1,035 adults across the U.S. said they “always” wash their hands after using a public restroom.1 Did you hear the joke about the toilet? Never mind, it’s too dirty!
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hand washing can prevent about 30 percent of diarrhea-related sicknesses and about 20 percent of respiratory infections.2 Let’s face it, germs are everywhere. In a typical day, your hands go from the gas nozzle to the steering wheel to your keyboard. You might scratch your nose, hold your coffee cup, answer your cell phone, and open doors. How often do you clean your steering wheel or keyboard? Probably not often enough. Oh, and there’s the credit card machines that ask if you want cash back. How many fingers touch those buttons? Gross!
Yes, washing hands is necessary, and really simple. But did you know that to effectively wash and kill the germs, you should use soap and rub hands for 15 to 20 seconds? That’s the same amount of time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice.
What should you do if you don’t have soap and clean water?
It happens to the best of us! Alcohol-based sanitizers reduce the number of germs on your skin, but they are very drying. We have a better solution! It’s called Skin Defense, and it’s a safe and natural solution.
A spray of Skin Defense on your hands provides immediate care and hydration for your skin. Hypochlorous acid (HOCI) helps the body manage minor wounds without harming delicate cells that aid in recovery.
Play defense at home, at work or in the gym.
Use Skin Defense spray daily to protect and defend the skin on contact. HOCI is a naturally occurring chemical that our white blood cells produce every day.

Skin Defense is non-alcoholic so it won’t dry your hands like hand sanitizers do. It’s also safe for the entire family!
