Sanitizing is no longer a foreign concept to us. Personal hygiene is of upmost importance nowadays. Whenever possible, hand washing using soap and water is the most effective way to get rid of germs, especially when the hands are greasy or contaminated by harmful chemicals.
Hand washing reduces respiratory illnesses, like colds, in the general population by 16-21%.
At work, healthcare workers like me practise 5 moments of hand hygiene. But it's not always feasible to reach for a tap at each moment. That's when, sanitizers become very useful.
This is how we should wash our hands.
At work, we use alcohol based hand sanitizers as they are proven to work. However, frequent use can really wreak havoc on our skin. Alcohol dehydrates the skin. They strip away the skin’s natural acid layer. This makes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles more obvious. Besides that, alcohol also irritates the skin which can cause contact irritant dermatitis especially for those with sensitive skin. The natural lipid barrier of the skin is also removed which may make acne worse. Not surprisingly, skin cells also die when exposed to alcohol.
Cellnique Sanitising Nano Mist could be a promising solution other than alcohol based sanitizer.
Cellnique Sanitising Nano Mist features
-No skin irritants
The main active ingredient is Nano-Colloidal Silver. This is basically silver in ionized form or nanoparticles. Nano-Colloidal Silver exhibits excellent antimicrobial, antifungal properties and is used for coating medical devices for preventing biofilm formation. It is also good in wound dressing in ionised form. Nano-Colloidal Silver use is definitely not foreign to my work as a doctor.
Infused with essential oils, this nano-colloidal silver sanitising mist is specially formulated to protect our skin including the face against germs and fungal infections. It is long lasting and suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
Nigella Sativa Seed Oil is rich in antioxidants. This retards premature skin ageing and is also great to calm irritated skin due to eczema, psoriasis and other forms of dermatitis. Besides that, Nigella Sativa Seed Oil also has potent antibacterial properties even for bugs resistant to antibiotics such as the MRSA superbug.
Bitter Orange Seed Oil, on the other hand, helps to maintain the oil water balance of the skin to optimise the skin's function as a natural barrier against germs. This oil also contains citric acid (Vitamin C), which maintains fairer complexion and strengthens the barrier even more.
A little bit about the background of Cellnique Paramedical. Cellnique Paramedical strives to combine the latest pharmaceutical grade skin care with advanced medical formulation including ingredients such as collagen and CoQ10. Backed by science, Cellnique has even established Cellnique Institute of Advanced Derma Aesthetics. This is how serious the company views the importance of research in product development. Recently, Cellnique Paramedical has turned its focus to solve skin problems in Asians. This is a great news for us because Asian skin is definitely not the same as others!
What does Dr Yingzangel think?
I really love these comparison charts to show how effective yet protective Cellnique Sanitising Nano Mist is. They even compare with chlorox which immediately remind me of Mr Trump :p
Traditionally highly concentrated alcohol is known to kill germs including Covid19, but many people especially healthcare workers like me, having to hand rub up to 100 times/day, will end up with irritant contact dermatitis. And we definitely cannot use those on our face. Cellnique Sanitising Nano Mist is suitable and safe for whole body use including the face. Kill virus but please spare our skin!
