They are effective against bacteria (E.coli, MRSA) and a wide range of viruses including Norovirus, HIV, HBV and HCV. desderman is virucidal against enveloped viruses, including coronaviruses in 30 seconds.
desderman pure contains emollients and is both colour and perfume free, so even frequent use is gentle on the skin.
A study of hand rubs concluded that desderman was significantly more effective than non-medical hand rubs in terms of reducing bacteria on the hands.
