Infection Risks in the Salon

Infection Risks in the Salon



Since the Covid 19 pandemic, professional disinfection and hygiene are essential in every salon or barbershop to protect customers and employees from dangerous infections. In addition to salon tools, all surfaces  must also be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after every service.

Here are the hard facts that everyone should be aware of:

Fact #1
Viruses and bacteria can survive on various surfaces for a long time and continue to be transmitted!

In addition to droplet infection, the Covid-19 virus can also be transmitted via smear infection, i.e., by shaking hands or touching contaminated surfaces. Scientific studies have repeatedly shown that the Covid virus has a different survival time on various surfaces – from a few hours to several days and still be contagious! For example, on metal for 3 days, on glass for 4 days, and on ceramics, even up to 5 days! The Covid-19 virus remains infectious on the skin for about 9 hours; therefore posing a high risk of infection. Salon professionals need to develop a heightened awareness of infection control and integrate professional disinfection measures into everyday salon life. This includes proper cleaning and disinfection practices, correct mixing ratio and adhering to the mandatory contact times.


Fact #2

Not Every Disinfectant is Effective and Certified Against Covid-19.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus (Coronavirus) belongs to the group of enveloped viruses. To ensure the safety of your customers and staff, always choose a disinfectant that has been proven to be effective against Covid-19. Barbicide Disinfection Concentrate has been officially proven to be effective against bacteria, fungi, and viruses, including Covid-19. New forms of pathogens are constantly emerging and it is essential to keep the effectiveness of disinfectants always up to date. All Barbicide ingredients are certified according to legally regulated standards and approved by EU directives.

Barbicide’s disinfection products have been specially developed for the salon and beauty industry and their special needs. In addition, a high level of professionalism, product reliability and quality, has made Barbicide, the “ Hairdressers Favorite “ for over seven decades.

Fact #3
Consistency and “Know How” Regarding Salon Hygiene & Disinfection are MUSTS in Every Salon!

For many years, King Research International has been committed to professional disinfection in salon, barbershops, nail and cosmetic studios with its professional products. Long before the Covid-19 pandemic, the company emphasized the importance of professional disinfection measures in the salon and beauty industry with tireless development and public relations work.

This includes the thorough cleaning and professional disinfection of your tools and workplaces AFTER EVERY CUSTOMER! There are many ways to integrate professional disinfection measures into everyday salon routine, such as the Barbicide disinfection jar: it is the easiest and fastest way to disinfect tools and beauty instruments. Barbicide Disinfection Spray can be used to quickly and reliably disinfect areas such as work stations, salon chairs and professional tools.
Clipper blades are often overlooked and is nevertheless essential, since the blades can become a source of infection through skin contact. Clippercide Spray is all you need to effectively clean, disinfect, lubricate, cool and protect against rust in one easy step! Wearing masks, social distancing and disinfecting your hands between customers are also extremely important in effective infection control.
