​​Hand Defense® - Professional Hand Hygiene


Did you know 40 percent of industrial workers will suffer from occupational dermatitis? It's a serious problem that causes pain, illness, absenteeism, lost productivity and increased costs for employers, according to the CDC. 


Hillyard Hand Defense® is a simple, yet effective skin care regimen that can help keep skin healthy and occupational dermatitis at bay. Clean hands with one of our five professional hand wash formulas​, and help protect and restore the skin with Hillyard Hand Defense Skin Moisturizer.


Bio-based Solvents - Surfacts - Emollients - ​A Smart Choice!


Many heavy-duty hand soap formulators use petroleum-based solvents, like mineral spirits, to help cut the grease and grime on dirty hands. While effective, there are natural-based alternatives.


Hand Defense products are formulated with natural, bio-based solvents, surfactants, and ​​​emollients.† 


Hillyard formulations with lower concentrations of natural solvents are very efficient at breaking down grease and grime when compared to products with higher concentrations of mineral spirit-based solvents.


Natural solvents, surfactants and emollients - a smart choice for your hands and our environment!
