Facts About Coronavirus
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), coronaviruses are a classification of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases like Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). This particular strain, called COVID-19, is novel—meaning, it has never before been identified in humans.1
It is spread through tiny respiratory droplets derived from coughing, sneezing, or exhaling. In addition to the respiratory droplets spreading by close contact, COVID-19 can also be spread by touching surfaces contaminated with the virus and then touching the eyes, nose, and mouth.1
For most people, COVID-19 causes only mild illness, it can make some people very ill. More rarely, the disease can be fatal. Older people and those with pre-existing medical conditions (such as high blood pressure, heart problems, or diabetes) appear to be more vulnerable.1
That’s the average number of times we touch our faces every hour.2
Why does it matter? Because the mucous membranes around the T-zone—which includes the eyes, nose, and mouth—are portals for infection.3 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.”4 That goes for more common viruses such as the cold and flu, too.2,3
You may have noticed that it’s getting harder to buy hand sanitizers, with pharmacies and stores short on inventory. Not only that, but there may be a better option for your hand and T-zone hygiene!
Beyond Hand Hygiene
While some hand hygiene products can be effective, overusing them may cause damage to the skin and may even compromise the skin’s natural barrier and defensive functions.5 Plus, those hand hygiene products are intended for use on just that—the hands.

Advanced Hygiene for Hand & T-Zone Defense With Theraworx Protect
Hand Protocol With Foam
Apply 1-2 full pumps of foam onto one hand.
Rub hands together until fully absorbed, being sure to cover all surfaces of the palms, and backs of both hands, in between all fingers, and underneath the finger nails.
Do not rinse. Repeat every 4-6 hours or as often as needed.
T-Zone Protocol With Wipes
After you’ve completed hand protocol, remove 1 wipe from package (reseal package).
Gently wipe your face, paying particular attention to the “T-zone” (around your eyes, nose, and mouth).*
Fold the wipe, and gently wipe just inside each nostril, using a circular motion.
Discard wipe (do not flush). Repeat every 4-6 hours or as often as needed.
*Can be applied around the eyes and on the eye lids, but do not put directly in the eyes, as it may cause eye irritation. If eye contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water.
