  • Can this protect me against coronavirus?

    According to the World Health Organization, “touching your face after touching contaminated surfaces or sick people is one of the ways the coronavirus can be transmitted.” That’s because the eyes, nose, and mouth are portals for infection. Theraworx Protect provides advanced hygiene and supports the antimicrobial barrier of the skin not only for the hands but also the face—and it’s safe to use around the eyes, nose, and mouth.
