"A little introduction on how soap works and why it is so important for fighting Coronavirus."
During this Covid19 time, we all understood how important is sanitizing our hands in order to get rid of the virus.
Virus can be active on surfaces for hours, or even days, with human skin being its ideal target.
This is why alcohol based sanitizers have been flied off the shelf, being the only way to avoid spreading the virus when we are “far from the sink”.
However, no matter how much we try expensive gels and sanitizers, our greatest ally in this battle will always be our friend SOAP.
What is soap and how does it work?
Soap is a salt of fatty acid, made by reaction of water, fat and alkaline together.
Its molecular structure has two ends: one is attracted by water, while the other is attracted by fat.
As most of viruses and other microorganisms, Coronavirus has a weak lipid external membrane to protect itself.
When we wash our hands, soap breaks this membrane, making the virus harmless and flushing it down the drain.
Keep in mind our skin is not flat, so it is recommended to soap hands for at least 20 seconds to make sure every part of the skin has been covered.
The good think is that you need just a little amount of soap to do the job, while you would need a bigger quantity of alcohol based products to soak every corner of the skin.
Now that you know the super power of soap, we hope you will love it as much as we already do!
