Chemical-free natural ultraviolet (UV) light to disinfect and control the spread of infection

For hair salons and personal grooming treatment specialists, good hand hygiene practices and regular disinfection of tools has never been more important. Not just for everyone’s safety but to help you to build your clients’ confidence in the environment you create for them.

As treatments take place in such close physical proximity, providing assurances for your clients and your staffs’ safety relies on thorough infection control procedures that include:

As viruses are known to build up resistance to antibiotics and chemical disinfectants, infection control procedures need to be durable. When ultraviolet (UV) light disinfection is an integral part of the cleaning protocol, greater defence against the spread of infection can be achieved.

While you’re following your cleaning procedures after each client, just pop your tools in a UV Steristrom unit and disinfection takes place within minutes. No need for physical cleaning or use of chemicals, keeping your tools in good condition for longer.

You can also disinfect your salon and treatment rooms overnight or when unoccupied please see the range of products below.

How UV Works

Exposure to UV photons prevents microorganism cell replication. Bacteria and viruses have known, but, limited repair mechanisms that are easily overwhelmed. Unlike antibiotics and chemical disinfectants, bacteria and viruses, crucially, have not been shown to systematically develop further resistance to UV.

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is capable of disinfecting surfaces, water and air. Effective disinfection of environmental surfaces is a key step in the prevention of spread of infectious agents. The traditional manual cleaning is essential in assuring adequate elimination of contamination. However, as cleaning practices vary the levels of disinfection unpredictable in many circumstances. UV radiation is an adjunctive disinfectant proven technology that disarms a wide array of microorganisms including both vegetative and spore forming pathogens.

The advantages of UV solutions are:

  • Cost effective
  • Reliable
  • Saves time – faster-acting than alternatives that can take hours
  • Chemical-free and chemical residual-free – no time to wait after a UV cycle
  • Disables vegetative and spore forming pathogens
