SM Cares and Safeguard promote proper handwashing for #SafeHandsAtSM

“As part of our safe malling commitment, handwashing is our first line of defense against illnesses and is also crucial during a global health crisis. We very excited to partner with Procter & Gamble’s Safeguard, the leading brand in health and personal care, to raise awareness on the importance of this matter.” ~Mr. Steven Tan, SM Supermalls President

The benefits of correct hand washing are major. SM Cares and Safeguard, the number one brand in germ protection, collaborated for the SAFE HANDS CAMPAIGN. This was conceptualized as early as March of this year. This campaign promotes correct hand washing as the first line of defense against the spread of illness. Safeguard will provide liquid hand soap to SM Supermalls Nationwide. So, shoppers, have access to germ protection hand wash during their visits to SM Supermalls.

Medical experts all agree on the best way we can protect ourselves at all times:
  1. Always wear a mask. These simple steps are the key:
  2. Observe social distancing.
  3. Keep your immune system healthy by eating right, taking supplements, and getting enough sleep.
  4. Wash our hands as often as possible.

And at SM, they ensure that these protocols are followed rigorously with all their SAFE MALLING endeavors. SM Cares and Safeguard team up for the #SafeHandsAtSM campaign to educate and encourage people to practice the five steps of proper handwashing – especially in this time of the pandemic. 

We usually wash our hands fast – but did you know that there are proper steps of handwashing? At the core of this campaign are the 5 steps proper handwashing. Here are the 5 STEPS TO GOOD HAND WASHING:
  1. Wash your palms.
  2. Wash the back of your hands.
  3. Scrub in between fingers.
  4. Gently scrub those nails.
  5. Don't forget those thumbs, and keep scrubbing for at least 20 seconds.
Afterward, rinse and dry your hands thoroughly, since good handwashing is our most effective shield and protection from all kinds of viruses.
“Safeguard, being 54 years in the country, has become much of a household name. From our beige bar soap from long ago to our hand sanitizers and liquid hand soap now, we have always committed ourselves to serve the needs of the Filipino people, just like SM has. And in the same way, I believe that both have been ingrained so much in Filipino culture that it is only natural to do this partnership.” ~Ms. Shweta Sharma, Procter & Gamble Vice President for Skin & Personal Care
