Since the Covid-19 era begun, washing our hands has become a regular task that we carry out multiple times a day. However, we tend to forget that the skin on our hands need protection too. So, in conjunction with annual World Hand Hygiene Day (5th May), Shokubutsu has been reminding Malaysians of the importance to maintain both hygiene and skin health with their ‘Natural Protection Hand Wash.’
Formulated to remove 99.9% of germs with natural antibacterial elements, the ‘Shokubutsu Natural Protection Hand Wash’ contains 100% organic shiso oil and plant-prebiotics. This provides natural protection against germs whilst keeping the skin’s microbiome in balance. It is also dermatologically-tested to be suitable for all skin types.
What is ‘microbiome’?
The skin’s microbiome is an automatic system that guards the useful organisms from harmful bacteria or germs. Thus, keeping our skin healthy even after multiple washes. “Choosing the correct type of hand and body wash helps to provide maximum protection,” says Consultant Dermatologist Dr. Goh Siew Wen.
Kazuo Mabuchi, Southern Lion Sdn Bhd Managing Director stresses that, “Even as Malaysia enters the endemic phase, the importance of frequent hand-washing cannot be overlooked as it is one of the most effective actions you can take to help reduce the spread of pathogens and prevent infections, including the Covid-19 virus.”
Shokubutsu also partners with health institutions and practitioners to educate the public on hand hygiene and skin health. This is done through virtual live sessions on the Facebook platform. Participants can receive professional advice on how to maintain the balance of skin microbiomes, and the importance of doing so.
As of now, Shokubutsu Malaysia, alongside Dr. Goh is collborating with Columbia Asia Hospital for a Facebook live session about Hand Hygiene & Skin Health. Be sure to check out the Shokubutsu Malaysia’s Facebook for details and updates.
