Washing our hands without replenishing the good micro flora on our body can result in our skin being vulnerable to pathogenic infections. It’s just basic microbiology.

Did you know, the handles of shopping carts are laden with harmful microbes such as E.coli, staphylococcus, salmonella and influenza? That’s just a few of the gross biological contaminants they carry.
