Marietta, GA (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
fiteBac SkinCare joined in the back-to-school spirit when it attended the Cobb County School District School Health Services event last Wednesday, August 8. The fiteBac team had the opportunity to meet and speak with many Cobb County school nurses, who were gearing up for the school year by attending the event. fiteBac gave out samples of its Germicidal Hand Softening Gel, an antibacterial gel much to the delight of the school nurses, many of whom purchased the hand gel for use in their clinics and homes.
The purpose of the School Health Services event was to update school nurses and ensure hearing/vision check-offs before the start of the school year. Cobb County School Health Services looks to improve and protect the health status of all students and ensure the well being of each student. The Former US Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders, MD is quoted on the School Health Services’ website as saying, “You cannot educate a child who is not healthy and you cannot keep a child healthy who is not educated.” The Cobb County School District therefore invited vendors that can improve student health, such as fiteBac, to attend the School Health Services event. fiteBac met with many of the school nurses in attendance and introduced its revolutionary, non-alcohol-based hand sanitizer as a method of helping reduce the spread of germs in the germ-laden school environment.. fiteBac’s introduction of an effective non-alcohol-based sanitizer is a solution to the numerous incidents of illicit use of alcohol-based sanitizers by teenagers that has been widely reported.
fiteBac’s Germicidal Hand Softening Gel uniquely combines a silicone base with a non-alcohol-based antimicrobial agent to sanitize hands. The silicone base applies smoothly and binds to the skin, improving the skin’s natural moisture barrier for hours at a time even with hand washing and without drying out hands like alcohol-based sanitizers do. The school nurses who visited the fiteBac booth were overjoyed at the smooth, soft feel of fiteBac. “This will be perfect for me,” many of them said eagerly, “because I’m always having to wash my hands, which dries them out, but now that won’t happen anymore!” The news about the fiteBac product spread quickly across the event, so that several nurses approached the fiteBac booth and asked to try out the hand sanitizer everyone was raving about. Many nurses purchased 1 oz, 3 oz, or 8 oz versions of the fiteBac hand gel for school or personal use.
“fiteBac is the perfect solution for school health personnel and students,” said Dr. Kirk Kimmerling, co-founder and CEO of Kimmerling Holdings Group, LLC, the Georgia-based biotechnology company that owns fiteBac. "Our hand sanitizer can significantly reduce the spread of bacteria, helping to improve the health of students, faculty, and staff, and also does the dual work of providing a hydrophobic layer on the skin that improves the skin’s moisture barrier and ability to resist the damaging effects of frequent exposure to harsh elements, such as water and alcohol, that can often dry out and damage hands. fiteBac is the hand sanitizer of the future, and we are excited to have shared it with these wonderful school nurses, who will take it back to their schools and students.”
fiteBac's Germicidal Hand Softening Gel has earned high praise from healthcare professionals and industry-leading evaluators and publications. Highly reputed infection control expert, Dr. John Molinari of THE DENTAL ADVISOR, recently conducted a product analysis of the fiteBac hand gel in which fiteBac was shown to exhibit high levels of germicidal activity. While fiteBac is endorsed for its unprecedented sanitizing capabilities, its real cause for celebration is the way it applies smoothly, leaves hands feeling soft, and can improve the condition of the skin in a cost-effective manner, unlike so many alcohol-based sanitizers on the market.
