New BSI kitemark is global first

BSI kitemark for hand sanitiser is a global first for Christeyns Food Hygiene

Warrington-based Christeyns Food Hygiene has become the first manufacturer to receive the globally-recognised British Standards Institution (BSI) kitemark for hand sanitiser.

Phago’rub Gel SPS and Phago’rub Solution SPS are hypoallergic, alcohol-based sanitiser products that disinfect hands in only a 30 second contact time. Already extensively tested and proven in the food and beverage industries, Phago’rub has virucidal efficacy under BS EN 14476 and kills 99.99% of germs.

Both Phago’rub products contain over 70% alcohol plus the addition of an effective emollient, which helps protect the skin from dermatitis, a common side effect of frequent hand sanitisation. The products are fast drying and non-sticky, so quick and easy to use in all types of facility, such as retail, manufacturing or leisure.

Peter Littleton, Technical Director at Christeyns FH, said: “Although Christeyns Food Hygiene has gained a reputation for innovative, quality products over the past 30 years, this kitemark certification is global recognition of the high standards we aim for and we are delighted that our Phago’rub products are the first of their kind to obtain this.”

Hand hygiene is, and will be, a constant battle in the war against COVID-19 and virus contamination. Effective and highly developed alcohol-based hand-sanitisers have a significant role to play, particularly as they can be used at all public interaction points, including retail, transport as well as in the workplace.

Established in 1903, the BSI kitemark is a highly recognised mark of quality, safety and trust across the globe and, according to BSI research, 67% of consumers have an awareness of it.
