  •   NEW Milton Antibacterial Hand Sanitiser Launches in Ireland


20 Nov 2020

  NEW Milton Antibacterial Hand Sanitiser Launches in Ireland

First product of its kind suitable from three months old

100% plant based – effective on 99% of germs, including Coronavirus – biodegradable

Milton, the leading expert in sterilising and hygiene further strengthens its commitment to families everywhere, with the launch of NEW Milton Antibacterial Hand Sanitiser in Ireland.

It’s the easiest way to keep hands clean and fresh when soap and water isn’t easily within reach. With 100% plant based active ingredients, lactic acid which is derived from beetroot or corn, the sanitiser was found to be moisturising, non-drying and soothing in rigorous dermatological testing on sensitive skin. The green credentials of its biodegradable formula are enhanced by recyclable packaging, no parabens, no alcohol and no colourants.

This alcohol-free product kills 99.9% of germs including bacteria and enveloped viruses, and is suitable for use on babies from three months old. It combats the possible risks associated with alcohol-based hand gels, which under-3s are warned against using, due to their skin’s immaturity.

Many similar foam products contain synthetic ingredients such as quaternary ammonium ( benzalkonium chloride, didecyldimethyl ammonium) and phenoxythenol, which can be responsible for allergies, harmful to the environment and human health. Milton Antibacterial Hand Sanitiser doesn’t contain any of these and is also suitable for use by children and adults.

Never has it been more important to encourage good hand hygiene in babies and children. Around 80% of germs are transmitted via hands so thorough hand washing is the first line of defense in the transmission of germs.  While out of the home, when access to running water may be more difficult, Milton Antibacterial Hand Sanitiser helps protect the whole family against germs. RRP €3.99 and available from Dunnes Stores from 30th November 2020.

Christine Chevalier, Marketing and Sales Manager at Milton, comments: “We are committed to developing products that protect the family and the environment. Our new foaming hand sanitiser is the only way to keep little ones hands germ free when out and about. ”
