Did you know?
Hand hygiene interventions can reduce the risk of respiratory infections by 16%.
Each extra hand hygiene event per day reduces daily transmission probability by about 3%.
Alcohol-based hand sanitisers are known to be ineffective against harder to kill ‘non-enveloped’ viruses?
They also interrupt the natural moisture balance of human skin, leading to redness, dryness, and irritation?
Switching to Optizil, our alcohol-free hypochlorous (HOCl) hand sanitiser, eliminates these risks. It is ideal for dental staff who have to sanitise their hands frequently. Or for use around children and vulnerable patients Our stabilised HOCl formula reduces cytotoxic (cell) risk for your patients, including children, pregnant women, the elderly and the immunocompromised.

1. Why OptiZil?
OptiZil hand offers a powerful but kinder alternative to drying and irritating alcohol-based hand rubs: The virucidal action of our HOCl hand sanitiser is effective on even hard-to-kill, enveloped viruses – such as coronaviruses – in under one minute.
Our unique manufacturing process takes the very highest quality HOCl and stabilises it for over 12 months. This produces an effective hypochlorous hand sanitiser that is completely non-cytotoxic, non-sensitising, and non-irritating to human skin.
OptiZil hand sanitiser is part of our innovative range that is designed specifically for the needs of busy dental practices. Our HOCl hand formulation eliminates bacteria, viruses, prions, fungi, and spores in a way that is faster and safer than any competitor products.
