Ecolab Inc.’s Endure Revitalizing Skin Lotion and Crème is a new skin care line formulated to help promote skin health and improve hand hygiene compliance in the healthcare industry. Endure products were specifically developed for the healthcare industry to provide customers with solutions that contain advanced moisturizers and conditioners as well as offer a higher level of skin protection to help prevent irritation and restore skin health, according to Ecolab. The product line responds to the unique needs of the healthcare industry, where the use of off-the-shelf consumer lotions can compromise on-site infection control. Many lotions contain petroleum-based lubricants that can negatively affect the barrier properties of gloves, or include additives that can compromise the antimicrobial activity of hand washing products, according to Ecolab.
Key ingredients, which are unique in the healthcare industry, include hyaluronic acid, a moisturizer that attracts water to the skin and helps rebuild skin structure, and SymRepair, a conditioner that improves skin’s barrier function. More info: www.ecolab.com.
