Christeyns, the UK supplier of chemicals to the commercial laundry market, this month launched a range of three hand hygiene products, aimed initially at the laundry industry but suitable for all environments where high hygiene standards are crucial.
The products, Sanigel, Sanisafe M and Hand Soap, are supplied in 800ml pouches that sit in a wall-mounted dispenser. Sanigel is a hand sanitizing antibacterial gel with emollients that kills bacteria including MRSA and requires no water or towel drying. Sanisafe M is an alcohol-free version of Sanigel and is dispensed as an easy to use foamy mousse.
The third product is a soothing hand wash with emollients that is mild enough for frequent use but strong enough to remove grime and harmful bacteria and prevent cross-contamination by hand.
In the laundry workplace this can also help prevent bacteria being transferred to washed linen or work wear garments such as those in the food and pharmaceutical sectors. Hand cleanliness also keeps linen unmarked prior to dispatch.
“This is a natural extension to our product range and we have undergone significant research to ensure that the liquids not only do their job but are easy to use and competitively priced, “said Christeyns operations director Dave Aveyard. “Initial feedback has been very positive and we are now introducing the range across all our market sectors.”
Synergy LMS offers a range of linen services tailored to the needs of healthcare providers in the UK, operating laundries in Derby, Dunstable and Sheffield. Kayleigh Dixon, quality manager at Synergy said: “We are already familiar with the high quality of laundry detergents from Christeyns and were happy to trial Sanisafe M. Keeping hands clean and germ free is essential in maintaining the high standards of cleanliness required in our industry. We were very pleased with the results of the trial and have subsequently installed the Sanisafe units throughout our facility.”
