Hands and nails are the main targets for microbial contamination because of their obvious exposure to external agents.
Our hands, therefore, collect a significant number (104 - 108 par cm²) of potentially hazardous microorganisms from the outside or other body areas, either through direct or cross-contact or by airborne contamination. Nonetheless, the real danger lies in the ease of contaminating anything they touch afterwards.
It is known that 8 out of 10 diseases could be avoided with proper hand hygiene.
Thus, our hands’ hygiene is one of the most important and easiest things to take care of to prevent infections and germ propagation.
