Improved formulation provides faster kill time

Assure™ hand sanitiser from Synergy Health has a new, improved formulation which now provides a faster kill time and higher log reduction.  The new formulation combines a unique blend of quarternary ammonium compounds (QACs) and organic based polymers to create a powerful hand sanitiser that’s kind to skin.

Assure™ is a simple, safe and effective hand sanitiser, clinically proven to be effective against a broad range of microorganisms including; Pseudomonas aeruginosa, MRSA, H1N1 and Human Coronavirus.  The gentle formulation does not dry the skin and provides residual activity for up to 6 hours after application during which the growth of microorganisms is effectively suppressed.

Assure™ does not contain alcohol unlike many other hand sanitisers on the market but does meet or exceed hand hygiene standards EN1500, EN1040, EN1276, EN14476 and EN1650.  Alcohol based hand sanitisers are known to cause defatting, removing the dermal lipids from the skin, resulting in dry, cracked and damaged skin.  Skin irritation and occupational dermatitis are known contributors to poor hand hygiene compliance, studies on which have demonstrated an average rate of 40% among healthcare workers.   A clinical study within a national care home group reported that Assure™ was highly regarded.  A new hand hygiene strategy with Assure™ was implemented, and resulted in 48% fewer patient infections reported across seven care homes.

Jonathan Wogel, Managing Director, Synergy Health said: ‘Studies have shown that compliance to hand hygiene policies vary, and skin irritation from alcohol hand rubs are a contributing factor.  We believe our Assure™ hand sanitiser provides a clinically effective alternative for healthcare workers who have experienced occupational dermatitis from alcohol based hand rubs.  Assure™ also provides a safer alternative for healthcare settings where alcohol based hand sanitisers are not recommended such as mental health, elderly care and alcohol dependent settings where there is the potential for ingestion.’
