fiteBac™ SkinCare Gel is easy to incorporate into the daily routine of hand hygiene. Following thorough hand washing, a small amount of FiteBac™ SkinCare Gelc is rubbed into the hands. The silicone-based gel spreads smoothly and leaves a silky coating on the skin. A small number of consultants described the feeling as oily or greasy (which may have been due to over-application), but no residue of the gel was detected on the skin surface. FiteBac™ SkinCare Gel is fragrance-free and only a small number of consultants noted a faint odor of the ingredients. The duration of hand softness varied among consultants, but most used it twice a day: first thing in the morning and after lunch.

Eighty three percent of consultants found FiteBac™ SkinCare Gel to be better or equivalent to other skin care products. Seventy-seven percent would switch to FiteBac™ SkinCare Gel, and 82% would recommend it.
