Shokubutsu Natural Protection Shields Skin from Germs While Balancing Skin’s Microbiome

In conjunction with World Hand Hygiene Day which falls annually on 5 May, Shokubutsu is reminding Malaysians the importance of maintaining hand hygiene and skin health with Shokubutsu Natural Protection Hand Wash.

Formulated to remove 99.9% of germs with natural antibacterial ingredients, Shokubutsu Natural Protection Hand Wash with 100% organic shiso oil and plant-prebiotic, provides natural protection and shielding skin from germs and helps to balance skin’s microbiome – a self-regulating ecosystem that protects the good flora to prevent attacks from harmful bacteria or germs, thereby maintaining skin’s health even with frequent washing. It is also dermatologically-tested to be suitable for all skin types.

Besides offering Malaysian families an efficacious and safe hand wash product, Shokubutsu collaborates with healthcare institutions and practitioners to educate the public on know-how in balancing hand hygiene and skin health through a series of live sessions on social media, where participants can receive dermatological expert advice on the importance of handwashing while maintaining the balance of the skin microbiome.

Consultant Dermatologist Dr. Goh Siew Wen stressed that while maintaining hand and body hygiene is part of our daily routine, we should also pay attention in choosing products that protect the skin microbiome. “Our skin is home to millions of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Similar to those in our gut, these micro-organisms play essential roles in protecting against invading pathogens. As humans, a major part of our lives involves touching – this facilitates the exchange of micro-organisms (both good and bad) between the environment and the body, and also between people and the community,” she said.

Shokubutsu Malaysia is joining hands with Columbia Asia Hospital for a Facebook live session on the topic of Hand Hygiene & Skin Health. Hear from Dr. Goh on the topic and check out Shokubutsu Malaysia Facebook for the live details.

Available in two variants, Soothing Fresh (with Tea Tree) and Protect (with Eucalyptus) Shokubutsu Natural Protection Hand Wash comes in two convenient sizes – 450g bottle (RM10.90) and 300g refill pack (RM6.20).
