Now, you might be asking yourself ‘what’s all the fuss about skincare in workplace’? After all, it’s a fair question!
There are a number of important reasons to implement an effective skin care regime, complimented by a range of skin products.
Skin is the most exposed organ of the human body, which means it can be difficult to contain their outbreak. Poor skin care practices can lead to the outbreak of, or exacerbate pre-existing, communicable skin conditions. Therefore, regardless of your professional industry, it is critical to implement easy and effective skin care and hygiene products and practices.
For example, in the absence of effective skincare practices and products, the wear and tear of physically demanding jobs may exacerbate pre-existing skin issues in the workplace. Cross-contamination of skin conditions, through physical contact between colleagues, becomes a serious risk, and may lead to the spread of communicable skin conditions in the workplace. This is especially true of sectors in which employees, clients, patients or children are in close proximity, such kindergartens, schools and hospitals.
Irritable contagious skin conditions can impact employees’ health, morale and overall performance. This may also lead to increased absenteeism due to ill health associated with communicable skin diseases. Decreased productivity and absenteeism will inevitable negatively impact a business’ bottom line.
So what steps can you take to alleviate the risk of outbreak or transmission of communicable skin conditions, keeping staff, clients, patients and children and safe avoiding the financial burden on the business?

Deb’s Sanitise range works to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria.
Hands are the primary vehicle for the spread of bacteria, which can lead to foodborne illnesses. It is paramount to implement a sanitisation regime in the workplace to prevent the outbreak of bacteria. For example, the four most common types of food poisoning bacteria (Staphylococcus, Salmonella, Clostridium and Campylobacter), which manifest in food poisoning, are commonly transmitted through poor food handling.
The Deb InstantFoam® Alchohol Hand Sanitiser is a fragrance free and dye free alcohol based foaming hand sanitiiser and is scientifically tested to kill 99.999% of common germs. Proven to be more effective, and preferred by users over traditional gels or liquids, Deb InstantFOAM® is a unique, hypo-allergenic, fragrance & dye free, alcohol-based hand sanitiser dispensed into the hands as a foam. The OxyBac Foam® Wash is an antibacterial rich-cream foam hand wash that reduces the potential of allergic reactions and skin irritation. The OxyBac Foam® Wash is dye and colorant free, making it ideal for food production and preparation areas. This Sanitise range will help to protect staff, friends and family from the risks associated with foodborne illness and poisoning. The Sanitise products protect the skin from germs and bacteria, ensuring the highest hygiene standards are met. This product is crucial for staff working in food and beverage, hospital, kindergartens, schools and aged care industries.
The Deb Cleanse Industrial product range is perfect for industrial environments which require heavy duty cleaning to remove heavy soiling. The Solopol, Kresto, Estesol, Super Heavy Citrus Hand Cleanser and DEB Natural Power Wash contain powerful natural, biodegradable and non-abrasive scrubbing agents to give a deep clean without damaging your skin, or the environment. The oils contained helps to condition the skin, reducing skin irritation and leaving the skin feeling smooth and firm.
