Handwashing for Life

Overcoming Underwashing


Healthy Hands are Easier to CleanSmooth, healthy hands are important to foodservice workers and important to the people they serve. Healthy smooth skin is easier to clean and keep clean. Rough, cracked skin is a reservoir where foodborne pathogens can hide increasing the risk of cross contamination.Those who need to wash their hands frequently must avoid dry cracked skin...It's like a crease in nature's glove. With rough, sore hands the food worker is less likely to comply with handwashing requirements. Skin conditioners designed specifically for food service environments are tailored to the needs of the foodservice worker. They help retain skin health in environments where twenty-four washes per shift is common and forty-eight washes per shift is possible. Like all successful kitchen products these restorer/protectors must be quick to use - greaseless and quick to dry. Skin is an important component of one's immune system. Restorers/protectors help maintain the pH, moisture levels, resident bacteria levels and natural healthy skin restorative systems.These moisturizers can be used throughout the day, but are especially effective when applied at the start and finish of a shift.Moisturizer/Restorer Checklist:

  1. Scientifically supported effectiveness
  2. Greaseless
  3. Fast drying
  4. No residual fragrance.
  5. Easily, reliably, hygienically dispensed.
