Hexistat Germicidal Hand Products have been specially formulated to destroy the vast majority of bacteria, microbes and viruses – without the use of alcohol, which can cause skin irritation and other toxicity problems.
Hexistat was developed in direct response to the needs of law enforcement and emergency-service personnel, who have been looking for a germicidal hand product that can be easily carried in the field and offers a high degree of protection from infection without the negative side effects of alcohol.
“Hexistat Germicidal Hand Products provide the desired combination of protection and convenience that police, fire and emergency personnel need to ensure their health and safety,” said Susan Mack, president and CEO of OMS Enterprises. “Although Hexistat was developed for these high-risk occupations, it can be used by anyone just as easily. It is both powerful and portable, with product options that can fit easily into a purse or pocket.”
The active ingredient in Hexistat is Benzethonium Chloride (BZC), a proven antiseptic used safely and effectively in numerous health and hygiene products. In combination with Chlorhexidine Gluconate, a non-toxic ingredient that provides fast-acting protection, Hexistat also offers the unique ability to safely bond to the skin, creating an added layer of long-lasting protection. A typical application of Hexistat Germicidal Hand Wipes protects the skin from infection for several hours
Although Hexistat was custom-formulated for rigorous use by law enforcement and emergency service personnel, this product can be used in any industry or environment where protection against infection is a concern. Hexistat is equally effective in hospitals, schools, hotels, restaurants, airports, retail stores, offices, theme parks — just about any place where contact is made with the public, and makes a smart addition to first-aid and emergency-supply kits.
