Protect, Cleanse & Restore -all three are necessary

Why are cosmetic products important in the workplace?

In many professions and industries, the skin is exposed to extra stress, such as heavy dirt in mines and industrial settings, or constant washing with soap and hand sanitizers in healthcare, food, and restaurants. There are also many people who have extra sensitive skin, eczema, or allergies, which are becoming increasingly common, making high-quality skincare products more important. Changes in temperature, dry or humid environments also affect the skin's ability to function as our external "barrier" against bacteria, viruses, and other potential infections. To keep the skin, especially the hands, in good condition every day at work, hygiene and skincare products that take care of it in the best possible way are required, both before and after work.

Scin care at work

1. Protect

The skin can withstand daily stress better if it is given good preventive protection, strengthening of the barrier and preventing infections and eczema, which can otherwise make the skin more susceptible to skin problems. Sterisol offers gentle, nourishing creams that provide good protection and are suitable even for people with sensitive skin or allergies.

2. Cleanse

When it comes to cleaning, the needs vary greatly depending on the industry and activity. In healthcare, gentle soap is needed that quickly removes microorganisms, as well as hand sanitizer that kills bacteria and viruses. In a factory or mine, employees are exposed to tough dirt that is difficult to remove. This requires heavy-duty soap and shower gel that can clean effectively while being gentle and environmentally friendly. In swimming halls, soap is needed that cleans and provides a fresh bathing environment. With in-depth knowledge of skin and skincare, Sterisol is the expert that can offer specially tailored products and solutions for all different needs.

3. Restore

After a work shift, the skin, like us, needs recovery. A common problem regardless of industry is that the skin becomes dry, either from frequent washing and hand sanitizing with alcohol or from being exposed to a lot of dirt and possibly chemicals. The skin needs to be moisturized with products that care for and restore it after the day's stress. Sterisol has a wide range of creams specifically developed for different industries that also work well for sensitive, dry, or allergic skin.

Skincare that is sustainable in multiple dimensions

Our products and solutions are based on a unique Swedish packaging innovation, Sterisol System, which allows us to offer skincare products without preservatives and other additives. This reduces the risk of allergic reactions and other skin problems since additives and preservatives are among the most common causes of contact allergies. For us at Sterisol, it is natural to produce products that everyone can use - even people with sensitive skin.

Sustainability throughout the chain

Although we offer skincare products such as soap and hand sanitizer for the workplace, our main focus is on a long chain of values. A healthier workplace where employees stay longer, products that have minimal environmental impact in terms of both content and packaging, and almost no waste because our dispenser bags are emptied to 99%.
