Is this cruelty free and vegan?
Of course! At Beauty Kitchen we are proud to be Leaping Bunny Certified - the gold standard against animal testing, this means that we (and all of our suppliers) go through rigorous assessments to ensure that all our products are cruelty free. This product is also 100% vegan and made sustainable ingredients as well as packaging.
What are Microplastics and why are they bad?
They are tiny pieces of plastic which are found in many personal care products including gel hand sanitisers. These microplastics are so small that we cannot see them with the naked eye. Through our shower and sinks, they flow into sewage systems, slip through the filters in water treatment plants and reach our rivers and oceans. Marine animals mistake these microplastics for food. These particles also end up on our plates because we are part of the food chain. SOS Skin Shield+ contains NO MICROPLASTICS - we are proud to work with the Plastic Soup Foundation and donate 2% of our profits to charity all year, every year.
Are there any toxic chemicals in SOS Skin Shield+?
No, not in the concentration which is used in our products. Beauty Kitchen complies with the requirements of the European Biocide Regulation EU528/2012 Product Types 1-5, which means it is deemed approved for use with Humans and Animals and it has been tested to BS EN 901 and is fit for human consumption.
What about COVID -19?
The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is the latest strain in the coronavirus family include SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV. To date, no samples of COVID-19 have been made available for commercial testing.
Third party tests on the active ingredient in SOS Skin Shield+ Hypochlorous Acid, has demonstrated effectiveness (>99.9% inactivation) against coronavirus strains from the same family as COVID-19 such as Bovine Coronavirus, SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV.
The government’s advice to use a hand sanitiser with more than 60% alcohol does not take into consideration non-alcohol based sanitisers which use Hypochlorous Acid to effectively kill viruses.
Based on the above we would expect SOS Skin Shield+ to be effective against the COVID-19 virus. Conclusive confirmation of this can only be achieved following testing against COVID-19 once the strain has been released for testing by the relevant health authorities.
Do remember the best form of protection from Coronavirus is washing your hands thoroughly for 20 seconds. For the most up to date information on coronavirus please refer to the Government and NHS websites.
Use sanitisers safely and always read the label.
