Coronavirus and CBD–Hand Washing
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offer only two simple but powerful recommendations under the heading: “How to Protect Yourself from COVID-19-Take Steps to Protect yourself” (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html). If we all follow them closely we protect not only ourselves but our community by slowing or even stopping the transmission of the coronavirus. If we do not follow them closely we risk not only our own health and safety but also the lives of so many of those we love.
The CDC recommendations are: 1) “Avoid close contact. Avoid close contact with people who are sick (obvious, but these are their words). And put distance between yourself and others (social distancing) if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.” We feel compelled to add on this point that social distancing should be observed in all communities until we, as a nation, feel safe.
And 2) “Clean Your Hands Often. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, especially after you have been out in a public place. If soap and water are not readily available use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.” With increased hand cleaning, especially among our front-line health care workers, dry and damaged hands becomes a bigger problem. The combination of soap and alcohol in a clinical setting of hand cleaning day after day will leave the hands dry and cracked, potentially vulnerable to infection, without effective treatment.
DaCrema Botanicals offers a clinical-strength solution that treats dry, cracked and damaged hands, resulting in moisturized and protected hands. We offer our strongest topical, our Liposomal CBD Cream to prevent and reverse damage from hand-cleaning. Our liposomal cream, with full-spectrum ND CBD oil and arnica as active ingredients, leaves your hands soft and moisturized, while stimulating healing and discouraging microbial activity (CBD is a natural anti-microbial agent [https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19969046]).
