Odor Hand Strips

People touch their faces an astonishing 23 times an hour on average.

Unfortunately, we do so unconsciously and hence it is challenging to curb this habit which forms part of our basic bodily maintenance. Odor Hand Strips leverage on our factory response to ‘nasty’ smell to keep our hands away from our faces. Each hand strip contains a gauze which is lightly saturated with ammonium sulfide - as our hands unconsciously inch close towards our faces, we are greeted by the odor which instinctively nudges us to keep clear.
