Have you ever thought about the positive impact that simply washing your hands can have on your health? We invite you to add another layer and level of protection by washing your hands everyday with HIBICLENS® antimicrobial soap. HIBICLENS is a medical grade antimicrobial soap, skin cleanser, and antiseptic globally trusted by hospitals, healthcare professionals, and moms. It’s effective in killing bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Today we’re presenting five key hygiene stats that will get you thinking seriously about establishing a healthy hand washing routine with HIBICLENS. Are you ready?
We’re Always in Contact with Germs
Stat 1: On average, you come into contact with 300 surfaces every 30 minutes, exposing you to 840,000 germs (according to the 2011 Tork® Report).
These germs are the cause for everything from the common cold to staph infections (which include MRSA, which I’ve had too many times to count. Click over for the picture. The infectious disease specialist insisted I wash my entire body with HIBICLENS for weeks!). A 15-second hand washing with HIBICLENS and warm water will help kill these germs instantly.
Here are the simple hand-washing directions: first, rinse your hands with warm water. Next, using 5mL (about 1 teaspoon) of HIBICLENS, wash your hands for 15 seconds under warm running water. Finally, rinse and dry thoroughly and you’re done!
There’s no reason to leave you and your family at harm when you can have a powerful solution like HIBICLENS at arm’s reach.
HIBICLENS vs. Regular Antibacterial Soaps
Stat 2: Washing your hands with regular antibacterial soaps offers no more protection against germs than average bar soap (according to the Minnesota Department of Health).
Compare this to when washing your hands with HIBICLENS, which has a germ-killing agent (Chlorhexidine Gluconate [CHG]) that kills germs on contact. Keep reading for more info on HIBICLENS’s long-lasting protection.
Stat 3: On average, there are 94,360 MRSA infections annually, resulting in 18,650 deaths each year (according to the Public Health Foundation).
MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a bacterium that typically causes skin infections. It has been shown to be more harmful in hospital settings. Its resistance to many antibiotics makes the bacteria quite dangerous. You can help prevent the contraction of MRSA by washing your hands daily with HIBICLENS antimicrobial soap.
Stat 4: According to the CDC, Salmonella is estimated to cause 1.2 million illnesses in the United States every year.
Salmonella causes food poisoning and is found in contaminated raw meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, and more. Washing your hands with HIBICLENS kills the Salmonella bacteria on your hands instantly (do this before and after handling food during preparation). We suggest that you keep a container of HIBICLENS in your kitchen and anywhere Salmonella is commonly present.
Stat 5: Every year, 200,000 people are hospitalized with the flu, 10 percent of those being children under the age of five years old (according to the CDC).
HIBICLENS’s long-lasting germ protection, up to 24 hours (according to MBT Study No. 582-106, Study Protocol # 5184.108.40.206.12), helps protect your children from the flu. Have your children wash their hands with HIBICLENS before leaving for school or other outdoor activities. This 15-second commitment to daily health will pay long-term dividends.
The fight against infection and disease begins at home, so you need a solution that’s convenient for home-use, gentle on sensitive skin, and lasts long enough to protect you after leaving for the day. HIBICLENS antimicrobial soap is that solution. Stats or no stats, our goal is to help curb the spread of infectious diseases worldwide through the use of HIBICLENS.
