Hand sanitizers have been in the spotlight during the Covid-19 crisis as consumers embrace a protect and prevent approach. With a focus on hygiene and cleanliness, this industry segment may undergo premiumization as demand increases for products that offer additional benefits such as moisturizing. Washing and the use of harsh sanitizing products effectively disrupt not only pathogens but also the commensal microflora on our skin. As consumers turn to immune-boosting supplements and natural remedies, this first line of microbiota immune defense may continue to play a key role in cosmetic product development. A brief review of clinical research pertaining to hand sanitizers and the potential effects on the skin will be presented. A detailed review of a novel study on the use of plant components will be discussed in relation to the prevention of microbial transfer from one surface to another.

This webinar will feature a presentation by Sanam Fazilova of Active Concepts LLC, along with an open forum Q&A moderated by Peter Toth, Chair of the SCC Florida Chapter.
