Deb OxyBac Foam Hand Wash

Deb OxyBac Foam Hand Wash

OxyBAC™ is a new rich-cream FOAM antibacterial hand wash that combines Deb Foam Technology™ with Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® antimicrobial agent to provide unique benefits compared with all other antibacterial hand wash products used in the food industry.  Professional use liquid antibacterial hand washing soaps have been available for over 50 years. Their use has increased in response to public concerns over the spread of infectious diseases and the need for greater vigilance in hygienically sensitive environments, such as the food industry where raw and uncooked foods are being handled and processed.

This has led to greater emphasis on germ-kill performance and the introduction of stronger antimicrobial agents. With this change, more has been learned about the impact that these antimicrobial agents, when used in antibacterial soaps, have on hand hygiene, human health and the environment.

The concerns about all existing antibacterial agents used in hand wash products can be summarised as follows:

Environmental toxicity – all existing antimicrobial agents used in hand wash products are characterised by having residual environmental toxicity that can be harmful to the environment and aquatic life. Human toxicity – many antimicrobial agents are known irritants and sensitisers; their frequent use can lead to skin irritation, allergic reactions and sub-optimal hand hygiene compliance. Antimicrobial resistance – the mode of activity, residual toxicity and wide use of some antimicrobial agents has led to concerns of micro-organisms building-up resistance against them.

OxyBAC™ overcome these concerns.
