Germs, viruses, bacteria and other diseases are everywhere. It can be found all around the house, no matter how much we clean. It’s because family members coming in the house from outside are not that much aware that they are also carriers of germs. It can be passed through person-to-person contact or touching dirty objects. But, are you also aware that germs live in the air, too? Yes! And Safeguard calls it #HANGINfection!

Good thing, Safeguard, Philippine’s Number 1 Family Skin Germ Protection Soap, partners with Pambansang Bae Alden Richards to spread the word about #HANGINfection and how to fight it. The fun part? They didn’t just make it informative. They also made it fun and nostalgic!

Watch this short video:

#HANGINfection, technically known as Bioaerosols, refers to airborne germs such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses that may cause skin reactions and respiratory sickness. Bioaerosols can come from a variety of sources, including soil, organic debris, humidifiers, air conditioners, and even farming and industrial pollution. The human body is also a source of bioaerosols: Shed human skin, coughing and sneezing can all contribute to airborne germs. These can make you sick in unexpected ways. For example, when you sneeze, most of the germs are transmitted at close range, but you need not be close to falling sick, as the smallest particles stay airborne and can travel as far as 20 meters.” says Dr. Pierangeli Vital, Ph.D. Biology (Microbiology), University of the Philippines Diliman.

The “I Wash It That Way” music video gives a Backstreet Boys hit song a fresh spin to uncover the truth behind #HANGINfection. As told in the music video, #HANGINfection can reach us, including our children, even if we’re not touching anything or anyone. In short, we don’t just touch germs. They touch us, too!

Alden Richards teaches kids and families about the germs present in the air, may it be from smoke, dust, or from another person’s sneeze.

“We know airborne germs are present in outdoor and indoor locations, and only Safeguard provides long lasting protection versus other soaps in the market,” says Ronaldo Puno, President of The Philippine Association of Medical Technologists, Inc. (PAMET).

For more than 50 years now, Safeguard has been providing Filipinos their first line of defense against germs, inhibiting the growth of disease-causing germs up to 24 hours after washing.
