Safe hygiene tips for your family

Written by Lisa

Learn how to wash your hands effectively, plus other advice to keep your home safe with our naturally enriched, NutriClean multi-purpose formula.

Our NutriClean formula has been in the Nutrimetics family since 1968. But did you know NutriClean Original Lotion Concentrate (OLC) makes the perfect hand wash, too? While alcohol based hand washes can strip your skin, our pH balanced, dermatologically tested formula keeps hands safe, soft and thoroughly clean.

Washing hands is more important than ever.

The World Health Organisation advises that washing your hands with just regular soap and water effectively remove viruses that may be on your hands.

Use our OLC formula to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. In addition to washing your hands after using the bathroom (at home or work), wash your hands before and after eating, after touching used tissues, after being in crowded areas and using public transport, after touching pets, before bedtime, before applying make-up, before and after handling contact lenses, or pretty much anytime you have to touch your face.
