Dirteeze anti bacterial wipes go a step further by testing the efficacy of the wetted wipes, not just the lotions in isolation.

Occupational Dermatitis can be defined as an inflammation of the skin caused by the working environment or by skin contact with a damaging substance. The symptoms and seriousness of the condition vary widely. Symptoms usually begin with redness and irritation, and occasionally, swelling.

Dirteeze hand wipes are dermatoligically tested & approved to the Cosmetic Directive with zero recorded irritation on all three skin types (normal, sensitive, atopic). In addition the wipes use an intelligent lotion incorporating aloe vera to keep hands soft, but cleverly do not leave hands feeling sticky.

Weil’s disease is a form of a bacterial infection also known as Leptospirosis that is carried by animals, most commonly in rats and cattle. It can be caught by humans through contact with rat or cattle urine, most commonly occurring through contaminated fresh water.

Dirteeze hand wipes are proven to kill the bacteria associated with Weil’s disease.
