Theraworx Protect is not intended for oral ingestion, and it should not be put directly in the eyes, as it may cause irritation. If eye contact does occur, rinse thoroughly with water. Theraworx Protect is, however, safe to use on the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose and mouth—mucous membranes are the tissues that line the body’s cavities and organs. So, you can safely apply Theraworx Protect around the eyes, on the eyelids, around the nose, inside the nostrils, and around the mouth.
That's the average number of times we touch our face every hour.
Why does it matter? The eyes, nose and mouth are portals for infection.
What's more, beyond touch, COVID-19 and other respiratory viruses may spread via droplet transmission and potentially airborne transmission when the T-zone is unprotected.
“Theoretically you should protect all the mucosal surfaces (eyes, nose and mouth).”

Hand and Facial Hygiene is Critical During Cold and Flu Seasons
Protect Your Hands
Washing your hands is important for protecting your own health, but also your family’s. Keeping your hands clean helps protect you from viruses when you touch your face.
Protect Your Face
Your eyes, nose and mouth are a “transmission zone” where viruses can enter your body. That’s why the CDC also recommends cleansing your face often to help protect against disease.
* Not intended for ingestion. Can be applied around the eyes and on the eyelids, but do not put directly in the eyes, as it may cause eye irritation. If eye contact occurs, rinse throughly with water.

Is Theraworx Protect safe to put inside the eyes, nose and mouth?
How is Theraworx Protect different from soap?
Soap is a hygiene solution that needs to be used with water and rinsed off. Theraworx Protect is a fast-absorbing, no-rinse, advanced hygiene solution. While soap has a higher pH level, which can cause dryness and affect the skin’s barrier,8,9 Theraworx Protect has a low-pH formulation, does not strip the skin of moisture, and supports the skin’s natural antimicrobial barrier and defensive functions.
How is Theraworx Protect different from hand sanitizer?
Hand sanitizers are intended for use on just that—the hands. Theraworx Protect is safe to use on the face, and even on the T-zone (around the eyes, nose and mouth). Another big difference is how they affect the skin. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers, which have higher pH levels, can cause dryness and break down the skin’s barrier—damaging the skin’s defensive functions and increasing the risk of infection.7,10-12 Theraworx Protect, on the other hand, has a low-pH formulation, does not strip the skin of moisture, and supports the skin’s natural antimicrobial barrier and defensive functions.
Does Theraworx Protect prevent or treat COVID-19?
We cannot make any claims about preventing or treating COVID-19 specifically.
