What is Kleenex Proactive Care Antibacterial Hand Gel?
Kleenex Proactive Care Antibacterial Hand Gel is a pocket-size hand sanitiser that you can take with you on the go, killing up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses so you can keep yourself and your loved ones safe. With 70% alcohol and a fresh lemon scent, this hand gel has been dermatologically tested to be gentle on skin, and is safe to be used by children under adult supervision.
How to use this product
Kleenex Proactive Care Antibacterial Hand Gel is quick and easy to apply. Squeeze out a coin-sized amount of gel onto dry hands. Then, rub the hands together so all areas are covered in the solution, including between your fingers and your wrists. Allow your hands to dry naturally and do not rinse or wipe off. Reapply as and when required.
When should you use hand gel?
You should only use hand gel if you’re in an area where hand-washing isn’t available. If this is the case, apply it before and after eating food, after you sneeze or cough, or if you’re frequently touching surfaces that may harbour bacteria. You should also apply hand gel before and after visiting a hospital or nursing home.
How much alcohol does a hand gel need to be effective?
The alcohol in hand sanitiser is usually a mixture of ethanol and isopropanol, which destroys bacteria and viruses that may be on your skin. The percentage of alcohol in hand gel must be at least 60% to have a sanitising effect - if it contains less, it won’t be able to kill the germs on your hands effectively.
When should this product not be used?
Do not swallow. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse immediately with water. Do not use this product if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
Store in a cool, dry place out of sight and reach of children. Do not use after the expiry date, referring to the last day of the month stated on the packaging.
