With salon hygiene practices outdated, impractical and often misunderstood we have worked closely with a leading infection, prevention and control expert - Dr Patricia Fenton, MB BS, NHS Trust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 you with the most up-to date, and recommended hygiene practices.
The most common and traditional method of tool hygiene in the industry is based around 'steeping' instruments in the famous blue style disinfectants. With this style of disinfection often a misunderstood and time consuming, we took on the challenge to provide a more up to date solution.
Working with Dr Patrica Fenton we have been able to create a simple ‘back to basic' 3 step process which will ensure an effective cleaning and disinfection of your tooling.
With the hygiene conscious consumer needing reassurance about effective salon hygiene practices now more than ever, what a better way to demonstrate your responsibility by investing in professional tooling and reviewing your current hygiene techniques to suit the expectations of a modern client?

Step 2 Disinfect - Using a 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 vertically in a clean and dry pouch until the next use
