We have two product formulations in our hand hygiene range:

Both products are manufactured in our purpose built infection prevention facility located in Redditch, England. In order to provide a range of products we felt it necessary to have both a rub with minimal contents, and a gel for prolonged usage and contact.


InSpec HR – a hand rub manufactured in accordance with the World Health Organisation guidelines.

The World Health Organisation have tested this formulation according to EN1500 and the formulation has been found to pass the test.

The formulation has the following components each with their own unique benefit to the formulation :

  • The hand rub contains 80% v/v Ethanol which provides the necessary efficacy.
  • Glycerol is added to retain moisture.
  • Hydrogen peroxide is added in a small concentration to protect the formulation from contaminating spores.

This simple hand rub is presented in an individual use spray format for convenient and easy use.

InSpec HG – is a hand gel of Redditch Medical’s own formulation.

The formulation is designed to provide enough active ingredient (Ethanol) at a concentration to provide fully viricidal efficacy, whilst also having hand care additives and presenting in a gel format.

  • Ethanol – at 85% w/w sufficient to provide fully viricidal efficacy.
  • Panthenol – also know as Vitamin B5, improves hydration and encourages skin repair.
  • Glycerol – is added to retain moisture.
  • Aloe Vera – adds numerous benefits including moisturizing and restorative properties.
  • Gel format – gels have been reported to encourage better user acceptability and therefore compliance1
