The human hand is and will remain our most important work tool – and is in constant use in everyday clinical practice. However, since around 80% of all hospital-acquired infections are transmitted by hands, they represent the greatest risk of microbial transmission. Consistent hand disinfection for doctors, nurses, carers and patients helps to break the chain of transmission via direct and indirect contact.
The health of the skin also affects the risk of the hand as a carrier of disease. Brittle skin, cracks and even the smallest wound are an invitation to all kinds of pathogens to settle on or in the body. Care and protection of the hands with lotions and creams are therefore an essential component of hand hygiene, because only healthy skin can be disinfected well.
schülke offers a complete and compatible range of products: from effective and gentle hand disinfection and cleaning to skin protection and care. Efficacy of the individual products – also in combined use – has been confirmed in numerous studies and meets national and international requirements. To make you feel safe every day.
schülke hand disinfectants of the brands desdermanⓇ and desmanolⓇ are equally popular among professional users. The reasons for this are obvious in the truest sense of the word: Their broad efficacy and excellent skin tolerance ensure this – demonstrated both in various studies and by millions of uses in the health care sector. Our products are particularly suitable for high-frequency daily use – for the duration of the entire work life.
Our skin protection for the hands includes a whole range of specific measures to keep the skin healthy. schülke sensivaⓇ skin protection lotion and cream are therefore designed to protect the skin from irritation. They are used on the hands before starting work, before activities that are stressful to the skin and after washing hands. Compatibility of skin protection products with other hand hygiene products is therefore particularly important. This is exactly what you can rely on when using schülke products, which have been thought through in the finest detail.
Skin care is a component of skin protection. sensivaⓇ skin care products are used when needed, after activities stressful to the skin and after work – they help regenerating the skin. Here, too, we guarantee compatibility with schülke hand disinfectants. At the same time, the disinfectant action is not limited, but – on the contrary – remains highly effective.
Cleaning the hands before starting work and when visibly dirty removes dirt and micro-organisms. Our sensivaⓇ wash lotion with skin-friendly surfactant cleans hands gently and thoroughly.
A danger foreseen is a danger avoided. schülke training products and UV light reveals wetting gaps in disinfection. These facilitate training of the correct rubbing technique for hand disinfectants and can also be used to demonstrate permeability of gloves.
schülke hand hygiene products provide you with a perfectly compatible system for your skin, completely free of dyes or perfumes and guaranteeing a pleasant skin feel. All of our products are enriched with valuable skin care and skin protection ingredients which provide your skin with long-lasting protection and care.
