Since the growing Omicron outbreak that has seen cases around the country skyrocket, we all now appreciate the importance of using hand sanitisers. They kill germs effectively and instantly and lower the possibility of the virus from entering our bodies. However, there’s one thing we all tend to forget after applying hand sanitiser – a moisturising layer of hand cream. Ironically, over-sanitising our hands without following up with hand cream can lead to dry cracks on the skin, giving germs an easy entry point into our bodies.
How can we take good care of our delicate skin at this time, without forgetting to apply an additional layer of hand cream? If you’re struggling with dry and cracked hands, you need to consider a levelled-up hand care product. DU’IT’s Tough Shield Sanitising Hand Cream is a hand cream as well as a sanitiser. This new formulation contains effective moisturising and antibacterial ingredients. It is particularly suitable for those who frequently use sanitiser without drying out the hands. But before we dig further into this innovative product, let’s try to understand why sanitising hand cream is better than traditional hand sanitisers.
How Traditional Hand Sanitisers Damage Your Skin
Although traditional hand sanitiser removes germs and dirt, it also strips the natural, protective oils in your skin, causing it to dry out. The outermost layer of your skin, called the epidermis is composed of keratinocytes and natural oils. It acts as a shield that protects the skin from environmental aggressors and a guard that maintains natural moisture in the skin. This natural barrier can be broken down by one of key ingredients, alcohol, which is found in most hand sanitisers, which can lead to and exacerbate dry skin issues, leaving your hands dry, rough, cracked or irritated. Moreover, cracks that form on skin can increase your risk of contracting infections through the fissures and also lead to skin problems such as eczema.
Why is Tough Shield Sanitising Hand Cream Helpful?
Responding to the increasing concerns of dry, rough and irritated hands during pandemic, A revolutionary 2-in-1 daily hand moisturiser – Tough Shield Sanitising Hand Cream has been launched. Enriched with a mixture of nourishing, hydrating and antibacterial formula, it is clinically proven to soften and repair dry and rough hands, kills 99.9% of harmful germs while providing up to 6 hours continuous antibacterial protection, leaving your hands moisturised, sanitised and protected.
Tough Shield Sanitising Hand Cream is also particularly suitable for winter use. It’s ideal for all skin types, including sensitive skin. As mentioned above, traditional alcohol-based hand sanitisers often get a bad rap for their drying qualities. In the winter months, frequent use of alcohol-based hand sanitisers will also exacerbate dry skin problems. Unlike traditional hand sanitisers, Tough Shield is 100% alcohol free and doesn’t dry out your skin. It is formulated with an antibacterial agent Colloidal Silver instead of alcohol. This ingredient can attach itself to proteins on the cellular wall of bacteria, thereby penetrating the cell, disrupting its metabolic process, and killing the bacteria. Furthermore, Our sanitising hand cream is also formulated with Urea and Dimethicone to be intensely nourishing and hydrating to eliminate skin dryness. Urea is a humectant, which keeps your skin moist by drawing water from the deeper layers of your skin and the air. Dimethicone is a silicone with occlusive properties, and creates a barrier on the skin, locking in moisture. All ingredients work together as a perfect combination to protect your hands: colloidal silver kills germs, urea gives a hydration boost while dimethicone creates the “glove-like” barrier, preventing moisture from escaping, protecting deeper layers of skin from irritants.
“Only started regularly using hand sanitiser since the outbreak of Covid-19. I noticed that my hands started to get very rough and cracked. No matter how many different hand sanitisers I tried, they still dry out my skin. Until I used this magical product – Tough Shield Sanitising Hand Cream! I cannot get over how soft and smooth my hands feel now! It leaves no oily residue and provides my cracked hands with the TLC they need. I have three now, one for handbag, one for home and one for work. Thanks, DU’IT. I will recommend it to everyone!” – Maggie, NSW
