“ Brand: HiBi / Type: Hand Wash / Subcategory: Wash „
I am very impressed with this product. I have suffered from a skin condition on my forearms for at least a year now which developed following a wax treatment on the area. The condition affected my hair follicles causing pain, inflammation and development of thickened skin plaques over the affected areas and lead to unsightly scaring . I have spent hours trawling the internet in an attempt to find information and tried various creams and lotions with little success. I finally saw my Dr who was unable to diagnose the cause and prescribed antibiotics whilst I await a dermatology appointment. I came across HiBi Wash on one of my numerous visits to Boots and decided it was worth a try. Thankfully the skin has finally begun to heal. I can only guess that the cause has been some kind of fungal infection, given that antibiotics failed to treat it. In summary for anyone awaiting diagnosis of a skin condition it would appear that HiBi wash is well worth a try as it doesn't seem to be contra-indicated for any conditions and is actually used in hosptials and is recommended as a pre-surgery wash. It is also worth visiting the manufacturers website directly as their prices match high street pricing ,they offer fast, reliable and most importantly free P & P , happily, they are also currently doing a 2 for 1 offer on the wash and I am making sure to keep my cupboard stocked just in case !
As far as I'm aware HiBi Hand Wash is the ONLY antibacterial hand wash that is proven to actually kill MRSA. Not only that it kills 99.99% of other bacteria. I bought this product for this reason. I know that about 3 in 10 people carry MRSA but not everyone is infected by it as its only when you have an open wound or your immune system is low that MRSA can take hold.
This product is great for protecting all the family at home. I think its great if you have little kids who are constantly touching dirty things and putting things in their mouth. It also has a 6-hour residual effect which I find gives me peace of mind. It comes in a pump action bottle and the product itself is a red foam that you rub all over your hands before rinsing. The formula contains some sort of moisturizer so I found that even though it is a hospital strength antibacterial formula it doesn't dry my skin out.
It doesn't come with a strong perfumed scent, I find it quite light. It doesn't smell of chemicals which is what I expected it too smell like as the packaging is quite medical looking.
I think using this product in the workplace is a great idea because normally when one person catches a cold the whole office ends up catching it as we are all using the same towels and touching the same door handles. I think using a product like this will definitely decrease the spread of bacteria.
HiBi Wash is part of a range of products that Kill MRSA from Mölnlycke Healthcare, a swedish medical company. Their products have been used by healthcare professionals within the NHS for over 40 years.
I highly recommend this product. They are doing a buy one get one free offer at the moment on the website so nows the time to give it a try.
I have been sent a few messages by people asking where to buy this, go to:
