Moogoo Anti-Bacterial Hand Moisturiser
Alcohol based hand washes are effective at killing bacteria, the same goes for soap and water if you have time. But after discovering that a large number of nurses and practitioners were reporting skin problems due to repeated use of alcohol on their hands, we set out to make a natural anti-bacterial cleanser that protected the skin, whilst being as effective as alcohol in a time kill study.
We spent 2 years experimenting and trialling a variety of natural blends and carriers before we achieved the results shown below on a time kill test of bacteria.
We started with a moisturising base of Aloe Vera and Natural Vitamin E. We then added a blend of 5 different essential oils, each targeting different types of bacteria. (If we were a little more Big Pharma perhaps we would call this blend “MooDermaplex 2” and put a patent down.)
When it comes to fragrance, we know everyone has their own preferences. Some find it crisp and fresh, while others prefer odourless. We’re aware that this blend may not be to everyone’s liking, but thought it most important to cater for those who have troubles with other hand washes. In order to receive some feedback, MooGoo sent approximately 20 bottles to nurses and practitioners who volunteered to give their honest opinion. We have attached their responses here so you can see the range of opinions.
Make sure all “organic” matter is removed (dirt) and massage the cream onto the hands. Ensure you get both the tips and in between the fingers. Rub until absorbed, it’s as easy as that! Germs be gone!
