With current UK tool hygiene practices outdated and impractical we have worked closely with a leading infection, prevention and control expert - Dr Patricia Fenton, MB BS, NHS Trust Director of Infection Prevention and Control 2002-2013 to provide the most up-to date, and recommended tool hygiene practices.
The most common and traditional method of tool hygiene in the industry is based around steeping instruments in the famous blue disinfectants. With many reports showing this is an impractical and often a misunderstood method, we took on the challenge to provide a more up to date solution.
Working with Dr Fenton we have been able to create a simple ‘back to basic' 3 step process which will ensure a effective cleaning and disinfection of your tooling.
With the ever conscious consumer needing reassurance about effective salon hygiene practices, what a better way to demonstrate your responsibility by investing in professional tooling and adjusting your current hygiene techniques to suit the expectations of a modern client.
All of our Navy tools have a unique titanium coating will help protect your clients, and minimise any risk of cross contamination.
When you purchase any of the Navy Hygiene range you will be given a 'Navy Approved' window decal , PLUS you also have our NEW badges which you can wear, signifying your understanding and acceptance of the our NEW 3 step system* (subject to availability)
Navy 3 Step Hygiene System
Step 1 Clean - Using a detergent wipe simply clean each tool ensuring all surface dirt and residue is removed.
Step 2 Disinfect - Using our 70% alcohol based disinfecting wipe simply wipe over each tool ensuring your cover all surface areas, be cautious of sharp blades or mechanisms.
Step 3 Dry - Dry all surfaces with a Navy Cloth or a clean paper towel, then store tools in a clean and dry pouch until the next use
Finally we recommend using our Navy Lube Tube to lubricate the joints of the tools to ensure tool longevity.
