Sanitizing hand cream by Farmaceutici Dott. Ciccarelli: the 2 in 1 solution which sanitizes without drying the skin

To sanitize one‘s hands is the first gesture of protection and responsibility towards oneself and towards others. In fact, during the day our hands can come into contact with microbes of various kinds such as viruses, bacteria, molds and yeasts, so it becomes essential to often wash and sanitize one’s hands properly to prevent and limit possible pathogen spread.

However frequent washings or the use of products with a high percentage of alcohol can cause unwanted effects. Surfactants and alcohol tend to alter skin hydrolipidic film giving rise to annoying dryness sensations, redness and cracking opening a direct way to microorganisms.

These are the reasons why Farmaceutici Dott. Ciccarelli has designed and conceived the new Sanitizing Hand Cream that sanitizes without drying skin, helping reduce the microbial load on the hand surface and and promote an unfavorable environment for microorganism proliferation. Its particular formulation replaces alcohol with a synergical mix of antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral ingredients combined with emollient active with a nourishing action.  It nourishes and protects skin barrier by preserving the hydrolipidic film and preventing it from, dryness, redness and cracking often due to the use of products with a high alcohol percentage. It respects skin pH and is quickly absorbed. A 100% natural fragrance.

It contains:

  • OCTENIDINE HYDROCHLORIDE: active ingredient known for its antimicrobial effects.
  • TEA TREE OIL: natural essential oil, known for its mild purifying, antibacterial and antifungal action.
  • BETAINE: moisturizing prebiotic and natural emollient.
  • VITAMIN E: protective, nourishing and antioxidant.

The product is completely designed and manufactured in Italy within Dr. Ciccarelli premises, where the company headquarters of the whole supply chain are located. The sanitizing action and the technical-scientific value of the new Hand Cream are further guaranteed by the accurate laboratory tests, carried out in cooperation with renowned research authorities involved in various multidisciplinary sectors.

Antimicrobial activity tests were carried out according to proven protocols, through in vitro analyses. These tests made it possible to assess the effectiveness of the product in contact with bacterial and viral strains considered to be the most representative ones among common pathogens in the environment. Fulfilled at specific time-distanced intervals, the procedure involves a quantitative assessment of microorganisms left alive after a contact with the product: the results have shown a reduction in the microbial load, highlighting and confirming the Hand cream sanitizing action.
