Frequently Asked Questions about Recommendations and Health

When should I disinfect my hands?

In an hour we touch each other, on average, 23 times the face, which favors contagions:

  • Before you eat.
  • Before, during and after preparing food.
  • Before and after caring for someone sick.
  • Before and after treating a cut or wound.
  • After the risk of exposure to bodily fluids.
  • After using the bathroom.
  • After changing diapers or cleaning a child who has used the bathroom.
  • After the nose ingders, cough or sneeze.
  • After touching an animal, animal feed or animal waste.
  • After touching trash or debris.
  • After touching stair handrails, pushbuttons and elevator buttons, ATM keyboards, vending machines or door handles (with special care in public toilets).
  • After touching bars and armrests of public transport.
  • Before and after a simple greeting to squeeze your hand.

Is it better to wash your hands with ordinary soap and water?

WHO (World Health Organization) recommends cleaning your hands by rubbing them with an alcohol-based formulation, such as SafetyBand’s exclusive formula® as the ideal method for hand antiseptics in the day-to-day routine. It’s faster, more effective and better tolerated by your hands than washing with soap and water, as long as your hands aren’t visibly dirty.

Is SAFETYBAND ® Hydroalcoholic Gel suitable for CHILDREN?

Yes, for your position. All the ingredients that make up SafetyBand’s hygiene formula have been carefully selected:

  • All its ingredients are registered with COSING, evaluated by the SCCS scientific committee.
  • The glycerin used is of non-synthetic plant origin, which is extracted by hydrolysis and fermentation of sugars, mainly from soy and coconut. We use Aloe Vera high concentration of polysacacharides, originating in Mexico and certified with the AloeCorp and IASC seal.
  • Also for the safety of the little ones the Safetyband formula has a completely innocuous component called BITREX. It aims to ensure whether a child or animal tried to ingest it, they would spit it out immediately before they can get intoxicated. A lifeguard literally. Children are especially sensitive to bitter tastes. This ingredient is helping accidental poisonings be a thing of the past.
  • DOES NOT CONTAIN PETROLEUM, TRICLOSAN, METHANOL OR PARABENES DERIVATIVES.

We use premium 70% v/v ethyl alcohol.

All this does not replace common sense, so we recommend its best use from 5-6 years old, since in the earliest ages, children suck their hands a lot. In children its use should always be supervised by an adult.

Why is our formula gluten free?

Although experts believe gluten cannot be absorbed directly through the skin, it can happen that a person after using a hand sanitist touches their mouth, lips or face. If a product contains gluten, accidental ingestions may occur. In addition, some people develop skin reactions to skin care products because they are also allergic to wheat or other grains.
