What's so special? 


Vytis Shield Hand Sanitizer has been shown to have antiviral activity against Norovirus (Murine Norovirus Type 1 ), Rhinovirus (cause of the common cold) (ATCCVR-482), Influenza virus (ATCCVR-1741) and Enterovirus 71 (Hand, Foot & Mouth disease virus)


In using the ex-vivo test method utilizing the pigskin model, persistent activity was shown against all three antibiotic resistant strains: MRSA, VRE & CRE for up to 4 hours.  Mean reduction between all 3 strains was over 99.9% at 2 minutes, 98.9% at 1 hour, 96.1% at 2 hours and 91.3% at 4 hours.


The FDA requires hand sanitizers to be tested on actual hands to prove real world performance.
