Many businesses are beginning to prepare for re-opening. Because information is constantly evolving, one thing that seems certain is that as states begin to roll out re-opening plans, it won’t be business as usual. Which is why many salons, spas, and fitness centers are using this time to plan out how they’ll strengthen or improve their practices to keep staff and customers as safe as possible.
Follow Best Practices & Use EPA Approved Virucidal Disinfectants
During this time away from your business, take a moment to review your sanitation best practices and recommended virucidal disinfectants for use in salon and spa.
Upping your safety measures is one of the first steps you need to take to get back to business. In a recent statement, BARBICIDE® president Alan Murphy confirmed, “We have received documentation from the EPA that BARBICIDE® is approved for efficacy against Human Coronavirus, including COVID-19.” BARBICIDE® certification helps you protect staff and customers, and seeing your business certification displayed will put client anxieties at ease.

As one of the most recognizable icons of hygiene in the beauty and personal services industry, BARBICIDE® has always been committed to helping stylists and spa professionals maintain the highest level of cleanliness and safety. And in a post-COVID-19 world, sanitation is sure to be scrutinized and held to an even higher standard.
