Avoid cross-contamination with ElephantSkin gloves

Cross-contamination is the unwanted transfer of bacteria and viruses from a contaminated site (e.g. smartphone) to a non-contaminated site (e.g. face). The term is particularly important in the healthcare, food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries because contamination must be avoided. For many consumers, the term was initially new, but it is now clear that hand hygiene will continue to play an important role in everyday life long after the Covid 19 pandemic.
