Dettol has resumed the educational campaign "Mission for Health", started last year, to prepare for the holidays the students from grades I-IV from the Bucharest general schools. During this educational event, about 10,000 students from dozens of general schools in all sectors of the capital learned from Dettol experts what the rules of proper hand hygiene are and the advantages offered by the use of disinfectant antibacterial soaps.
The children were encouraged to discuss how they can avoid illness and infection during the holidays and to list the hygiene rules they know. The meetings proved to be a success, the little ones being very interested in the subject and actively participating. Dettol experts have taught them that by properly washing their hands with a disinfectant soap, they can avoid transmitting infections caused by viruses and bacteria.
Because it is better to prevent than to treat, Dettol offered each student an automatic Dettol No Touch dispenser for liquid disinfectant soap. With Dettol, hand washing is easy and efficient: the dispenser automatically activates when the hands are detected, thus releasing the optimum amount of soap. Dettol liquid soap destroys 99.9% of bacteria, including gram positive and gram negative bacteria such as Enterococcus hirae, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphilococcus aureus, over which the usual antibacterial soap has no action. In addition, the disinfectant formula is enriched with moisturizing ingredients that take care of the skin of the hands, such as: aloe vera, cotton milk, levantica extract and others.
Dettol, the only range of biocidal (disinfectant) antibacterial products recommended by the Romanian Society of Pediatrics, offers effective solutions for better protection against bacteria.
The Dettol campaign was initiated in order to educate the children to practice proper hand hygiene.
