NCH Industrial Hand Care Solutions
With occupational dermatitis being one of the most widespread causes of ill health, it’s vital that you take hand care seriously. Do your employees suffer from repeated skin exposure to hazardous substances? Are poor quality soaps and cleansers leading to complaints of dry, cracked hands? Our solutions safe guard against irritation and drying and shield hands in tough working environments.
Our premium industrial hand soap, HDHC Natural, uses a natural olive stone scrub instead of harmful microbeads to remove heavy soils. Combine this with our protective skin cream to form a barrier around your skin to shield against irritation and drying, and finally condition skin with our range of skin conditioners to leave hands feeling soft and smooth.
Industrial hand cleaners and the environment
Most microbeads are smaller than 5mm, with those used in many cosmetic products being just 1mm in diameter, so it’s hardly surprising that wastewater filters can’t catch them before water is returned to the ocean and why over 100,000 beads can be washed away in a single application of exfoliating hand wash.
Microbeads are commonly made of polyethylene but can also be polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate, poly methyl methacrylate or even nylon. None of these sound particularly appetising, but as marine wildlife cannot differentiate between what is a microbead and what is a food source, microbeads end up in the stomachs of fish, seabirds and whales.
