									          HIBI PROVEN TO BE EFFECTIVE AGAINST H1N1 SWINE FLU

         Recent testing conducted in the USA has shown that 2 products within the HiBi Antiseptics
         range are effective against H1N1 Swine Flu. HiBiScrub and HiBi Gel Hand Rub+ were tested
         at different time points and the results showed:

         HiBi Gel Hand Rub+ effective in 15 seconds

         HiBiScrub effective in 30 seconds

         These results are significant as the potential for further more serious outbreaks of the
         H1N1 virus becomes more likely. The virus, now at pandemic proportions has spread
         rapidly since an outbreak in Mexico earlier this year. Recommendations from leading
         healthcare agencies including the CDC (Centre for Disease Control) on good hand hygiene
         practice suggest one of the best ways to avoid cross contamination and reduce the risk of
         contracting the virus is to adapt a good hand hygiene routine.

         HiBiScrub antimicrobial skin cleanser with added emollients reduced the infectivity of
         Swine Influenza A H1N1 virus strain 4.25log10 (>99.99%) reduction following 30 second, 60
         second and 3 minute exposures1. HiBiScrub is aqueous wash containing 4%w/v
         Chlorhexidine Gluconate and has been proven to remain active against bacteria for up to 6
         hours after application.

         HiBi Gel Hand Rub+ reduced the infectivity of Swine Influenza A H1N1 virus strain 4.25log10
         (>99.99%) reduction following 15 second, 30 second and 60 second exposures 2. HiBi Gel
         Hand Rub+ is an alcohol hand rub containing 2%w/v Chlorhexidine Gluconate. The sinkless
         application of HiBi Gel Hand Rub+ means that not only is the product effective against
         bacteria for up to 6 hours after application but it means healthcare workers and the
         general public can use the product without the need for water offering an efficient
         effective solution in the fight against H1N1.
