Sursol™ is water based with natural moisturisers (aloe vera & camomile) included in the formulation this makes it safe, non-toxic, non-poisonous, alcohol-free and ideal for use with at risk patients such as alcohol dependent persons, children and the elderly. Alcohol gels are known to dry the skin regardless of additional moisturisers. Extended use of alcohol sanitizers and extensive washing of the hands has been shown to lead to Irritable Contact Dermatitis (ICD). 85% of health care workers suffer from some form of ICD. As result up to 80% of health care workers in some settings do not apply a sanitizer as often as required by Infection Control. The British Medical Journal (BMJ) recommends the use of skin cleansers that do not de-fat skin or contain harsh abrasives. Most alcohol gels have at least 60% alcohol content and will de-fat skin with every use. ICD is now recognised as an occupational hazard for healthcare workers.
