Along with the hand sanitizers “it’s time for hydration,” says Nanovertores

With the excessive (and necessary!) hand washes and the constant use of alcoholic hand sanitizers in the prevention of the COVID-19, skin hydration is also required, explains Brazilian supplier of personal care ingredients Nanovetores.

We know that the prevention is the best way to contain the dissemination of diseases caused by viruses and bacteria and alcohol gel is a great ally in this combat. Its habitual use requires some extra care with the skin,” highlights the company in a statement.

Alcohol gel is known as a skin permeation enhancer and its high concentrations leads to the removal of part of the skin lipid content, leaving the barrier with greater loss of transepidermal water, that is, leaves our skin without the defense against external aggressors.

According to the company, in order to help in the prevention of the disease, while avoiding skin dryness, a good solution is to always use moisturizers containing antiseptic actives and antibacterial properties, after sanitizing the hands with alcohol gel or water and soap.

It is noteworthy that the use of moisturizers does not inactivate the action of alcohol gel,” adds the company.

Some examples of actives from Nanovetores are:

- High hydration: the active ingredient NV Hydratech promotes high hydration and acts in the lipid reposition. It provides skin hydration increase above 105% after 4 hours of application, followed by a maintenance around 114% from 48 hours.
- Antimicrobial action: the active ingredient Nano Bioprotect is an antimicrobial blend of essential oils, natural preservative with antiseptic and sanitizing properties. Nanovetores’ encapsulation technology developed capsules made of strategic materials that work as nutritional sources for microorganisms, which results in a “trap” system: the microorganisms by degrading the capsules come into contact with the antimicrobial blend.
