pjur Offers Sanitation Tips On World Hand Hygiene Day

WASSERBILLIG, Luxembourg—The World Health Organization (WHO) has proclaimed May 5—today!—as World Hand Hygiene Day, and for many people, the topic of hand hygiene has become more important due to the current pandemic. The awareness that proper hand washing and disinfecting can prevent or contain the spread of a disease such as COVID-19 has increased significantly.

Clean hands are an effective way to fight viruses

The importance of cleaning and disinfection have more and more become a part of everyday life for many people. Hands and skin are particularly important at the moment, since an estimated 80% of infections are transmitted via hands. This transmission path can be interrupted by washing hands with soap and water or a hand disinfectant for about 30 seconds. Whether in the car, at the office or while shopping, a quick and hygienic cleaning of the hands is especially relevant when soap and water are not accessible.

Proper hand disinfection with pjur DESINFECT takes only 30 seconds

At the beginning of May, pjur launched a highly effective disinfectant for skin and hands. pjur DESINFECT offers quick and safe, hygienic cleaning without alcohol. For hygienic disinfection, put at least 3 ml in the dry palm of the hand, rub it evenly into the hands for at least 30 seconds, and do not rinse off. It is important that, in addition to the palms of the hands, the back of the hand and the finger(tip)s are also disinfected.

pjur DESINFECT does not use alcohol, as alcohol-based products dry out the hands, making them cracked and brittle, thus making them more susceptible to bacteria and viruses. It is also pH-neutral, skin-friendly and free of perfume and microplastics. The product is registered in line with Germany’s Biocide Notification Ordinance. Thanks to its handy design, the 100ml bottle is practical for on the go and absolutely leak-proof.

pjur DESINFECT PoS kit supports customers' compliance with hygiene standards

To promote the importance of hand disinfection in stores, pjur specifically developed a point-of-sale (PoS) kit. It can help customers to comply with hygiene standards. The pjur DESINFECT PoS kit consists of four parts. It contains a notice "Please disinfect here", a notice showing the individual steps for ideal hand disinfection, a prism display that can be placed on a table next to a disinfection pump dispenser, and a sticker that summarizes the most important hygiene measures: "Keep your distance, wear a face mask and disinfect your hands." A PoS kit will automatically be added to every order of pjur DESINFECT free of charge.
