Why Theraworx Protect?

We touch our faces an average of 23 times an hour.1 Why does it matter? Because the eyes, nose and mouth—or the “T-zone”—are entryways for illnesses like the cold, flu and even COVID-19.1-4 In fact, the World Health Organization cautions that “touching your face after touching contaminated surfaces or sick people is one of the ways the coronavirus can be transmitted.”5

Hand hygiene is a very important factor in protecting yourself, but according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, frequent facial cleansing is also important in helping prevent the transmission of viruses and other illnesses.6

Theraworx Protect goes beyond hand hygiene, offering dual defense for both the hands AND the face. And this clinically proven, gentle, no-rinse solution is safe to use on the T-zone, the area that leaves us most vulnerable to infection.

Plus, unlike other hygiene products that can cause dryness and break down the skin’s barrier— increasing the risk of infection7—Theraworx Protect is actually good for the skin, supporting the skin’s natural antimicrobial barrier and defensive functions.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Theraworx Protect safe to put inside the eyes, nose and mouth?

    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.

  • 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. But Theraworx Protect is a clinically proven hygiene solution that can be used on the hands and around the eyes, nose and mouth—the areas that leave us most vulnerable to infections, viruses and other illnesses.
