Excellent tolerability safety – the benefits of research
The formulation has been thoroughly tested in pre-clinical biocompatibility studies as well as clinical trials documenting its excellent safety and tolerability profile. Even in situations of breached or compromised skin, e.g. often experienced by healthcare workers, SafeDes+ does not sting, burn, or dry out the skin, making it an ideal alternative to alcohol-based handrubs. Importantly, the SafeDes+ formula does not induce antimicrobial resistance. The use of SafeDes+ can help prevent and reduce hand eczema and irritated skin among healthcare workers, increase hand hygiene compliance, and reduce hospital acquired infections and antimicrobial resistance.
The product is not classified as dangerous according to the CLP regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, apart from potentially being corrosive on metals. Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.
Yüksel et al (2021): Skin barrier response to active chlorine hand disinfectant—An experimental study comparing skin barrier response to active chlorine hand disinfectant and alcohol-based hand rub on healthy skin and eczematous skin
The aim of the present study was to examine the skin barrier response to ACHD compared with ABHR on intact skin and on skin with experimentally induced irritant contact dermatitis in healthy individuals, respectively.
In both studies, the skin barrier function was unaffected after repetitive exposure to ACHD and ABHR, and with no significant differences between the products. Subjective discomfort was reported as sporadic or very mild in relation to both products.
