Puray / UVC Hand Sanitizer


There can be found up to 150 different germs on our hands, 80% of all conventional diseases are transmitted through them. Especially in times of Covid-19 it becomes apparent which important role hand hygiene plays in the containment of diseases.
The Puray hand sanitizer illuminates the hands only with UV-C light and thus provides a safe, contactless and easy disinfection within seconds.
The light rays don’t harm human cells and yet eliminate all known viruses and bacteria. By providing foremost technology and omitting chemicals, flammable liquids and waste through disposables, Puray contributes to the safety and wellbeing of our communities.
