How to Choose a Safe Hand Sanitizer

How to Choose a Safe Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer manufacturing has exploded to meet demand in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, but did you know that some products in the market could actually be potentially toxic, according to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA)? Yes, you read right.

The FDA recently issued an advisory warning against using hand sanitizer products from a Mexico-based manufacturer known as Eskbiochem because it discovered methanol in some of its products. Methanol is extremely toxic if it’s absorbed by the skin or ingested.

So, with the flood of new products on the market, how can you be sure the hand sanitizer you’re buying is safe to use? Ahead, we’re breaking down do’s and don’ts when buying a hand sanitizer. Plus, see why CHI Natural Gardens Moisturizing Hand Sanitizers and Biosilk Moisturizing Hand Sanitizers are among the safest to use when cleaning your hands in a pinch.

Q

Don’t use a hand sanitizer that contains methanol—also known as wood  alcohol—due to its toxic effects, according to the FDA. Substantial exposure can cause nausea, vomiting, headaches, and more.

R

Do use CHI Natural Gardens Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer, Biosilk Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer and Biosilk Aloe Vera Hand Sanitizer instead because it contains Ethyl Alcohol to kill 99.9% of germs.

Q

Avoid hand sanitizers that contain less than 60% alcohol as it’s not effective to reduce germs, per the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

R

Look for hand sanitizers that exceed the CDC requirements like the CHI Natural Gardens Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer, Biosilk Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer and Biosilk Aloe Vera Hand Sanitizer, which contains 77% v/v Ethyl Alcohol.

Q

Skip out on hand sanitizers with harsh bacteria-killing ingredients that can cause dryness or skin irritation.

R

Opt for hand sanitizers with natural, moisturizing ingredients instead. CHI Natural Gardens Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer, Biosilk Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer and Biosilk Aloe Vera Hand Sanitizer are 92% natural with organically grown aloe vera to keep hands soft and hydrated.

Farouk Systems’ Innovation Drives Health + Care Manufacturing

Farouk Systems’ Innovation Drives Health + Care Manufacturing

Creativity and innovation have been a long-standing signature of Farouk Systems, Inc. It developed the world’s first ammonia-free hair color in 1985 and pioneered the use of NASA-inspired CHI Nano Silver and Blue Light Technology in its hairstyling products in 2005. So when the coronavirus pandemic hit, the haircare giant jump-started its innovation engine once again to step up, and make a difference.

Since sanitization is critical to saving lives and sparing health impacts—now and for the foreseeable future—the Houston-based business worked diligently to release a slew of new products under its new Health + Care category.

“We immediately rallied to innovate and create new sanitization products with such a passion and purpose to help support America in the fight against the spread of COVID-19,” said Dr. Farouk Shami, Founder and Chairman of Farouk Systems, Inc.

The haircare company immediately shifted production efforts to produce a variety of hand sanitizers that were powerful enough to kill 99.9% of germs, but also gentle enough on hands thanks to its formula with organically grown aloe vera.

The new hand sanitizers include CHI Natural Gardens Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer, Biosilk Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer, Biosilk Aloe Vera Hand Sanitizer, CHI Biosilk Automatic Dispenser, and Biosilk Moisturizing Hand 2 Sanitizer Spray.

“In addition to producing millions of high-quality sanitizers to help with the market shortage, we donated countless bottles to frontline healthcare workers and first responders to help save lives,” said Dr. Shami.

Farouk Systems, Inc. then doubled-down on the production on its blow dryers featuring its NASA-inspired CHI Nano Silver and Blue Light Technology. Its state-of-art blow dyers like the CHI Nano Hair Dryer or CHI 1875 Series Hair Dryer use blue LED lights to send out wavelengths to kill bacteria in the dryer as well as microorganisms in the air.

That’s not all. Now Farouk Systems, Inc. is taking action to disinfect entire rooms and high touch surfaces by releasing its all-new CHI Life Germicidal UV Light Sanitizer and CHI Life Handheld UV Light Sanitizer. These bacteria-busters clean items or surfaces without any damage, chemicals or odors.

Just place the CHI Life Germicidal UV Light Sanitizer in a room or wave the CHI Life Handheld UV Light Sanitizer over any desired surface, and clean homes, offices, cellphones, laptops and more with the disinfecting powers of ultraviolet light.

A Stylishly Sleek Look with the CHI x Barbie Hairstyling Iron

A Stylishly Sleek Look with the CHI x Barbie Hairstyling Iron

Natural or curly hair is indisputably beautiful, but every now and then it can be fun to switch it up. If you’re looking to straighten your hair to sleek, shiny perfection, we’ve got you covered with this CHI x Barbie Dream Pink 1″ Digital Titanium Hairstyling Iron how-to.

First and foremost, a heat protectant is an absolute must before you begin heat styling your hair. To prep your hair, spray a generous amount of CHI x Barbie 44 Iron Guard moving from roots to ends to shield your hair from damage. For maximum shine and softness, also add a dime-sized amount of CHI x Barbie Silk Infusion from mid-lengths to ends.

Now that you’ve prepped your tresses, be sure use a paddle brush to get rid of any knots and tangles before you straighten. Using hair clips to section your hair will make for an easier and efficient styling process. To guarantee you do not miss a spot while straightening, divide the top and bottom of the hair, and then divide those sections into smaller ones to ensure every strand is accounted for.

Make sure your CHI x Barbie Dream Pink 1″ Digital Titanium Hairstyling Iron is turned on and heated before you start. For the best results, the ideal temperature is 365 degrees. The titanium plates will heat up evenly, produce incredible shine, and lock out humidity.

To create a flawlessly straight look, begin by straightening the hair at the roots and slowly work your way down to the ends. Continue this technique throughout your hair until you’ve straightened each section of hair.

Complete the style by adding a dime-sized amount of CHI x Barbie Silk Infusion onto your hair from mid-lengths to ends for extra shine. Your hair will be silky-smooth, and ready for a day out.

Loose curls, beach waves – whatever you want to call it, it’s hairstyle with iconic status. Ahead, we’re breaking down exactly how you can achieve this dreamy look using the CHI x Barbie Dream Pink 1 ¼ Titanium Curling Iron.

Be sure to prepare and protect hair for styling by using the CHI x Barbie Silk Infusion. Simply apply a dime-sized amount from mid-lengths to ends, and then you’re ready to style.

To begin curling, just release the clamp of the CHI x Barbie Dream Pink 1 ¼ Titanium Curling Iron, and wrap a one-inch strand around the barrel. Then close the clamp, and hold it there for 5 to 10 seconds. Afterwards, release the hair from the barrel to reveal a perfectly bouncy curl. Repeat this curling technique until your entire head is curled.

Finish off the look by adding a small amount of CHI x Barbie Silk Infusion to your tresses for a shiny and polished style. For looser curls, just run your fingers through your hair. You can also brush out the curls with a paddle brush for a more voluminous look, and voilà.

Combat Bacteria & Buildup with the CHI Nano Hair Dryer

Ask yourself: When was the last time you cleaned your blow dryer? Never? We thought so. Lucky for you, the CHI Nano Hair Dryer’s Nano Silver and Blue LED lights help kill bacteria and buildup providing cleaner air for healthier hair.

Why is this so important? A dirty blow dryer can get clogged by hair, dust, dirt, and hairspray. The buildup can cause the blow dryer to overheat, which leads to split ends and breakage. The Rapid Clean Technology of the CHI Nano Hair Dryer, however, keeps the inside of the dryer free from bacterial buildup, germs, dandruff and more for an overall healthier drying experience.

Think that is impressive? Get this: the NASA-inspired Nano Silver & Blue Light Technology sends out wavelengths to kill bacteria and microorganisms in the surrounding air.

Hairstylists Protest Exclusion from Phase One of Reopening Texas

Hairstylists Protest Exclusion from Phase One of Reopening Texas



Hairstylists protest exclusion from phase one of reopening Texas 
FOX 26 Reporter Ivory Hecker speaks with hairdressers upset they are not being allowed to open until mid-May at the earliest.

Hairstylists and barbers rallied in north Houston Thursday protesting the governor’s economic shutdown that is preventing them from opening their salons and barbershops.

Thursday just so happens to be National Hairstylist Appreciation Day. Thursday is also the day before malls, movie theaters, and retailers will be allowed to reopen, but salons and barbershops are still mandated to stay closed.

“We are professional, and we deserve to make a living,” said Farouk Shami, founder of Farouk Systems CHI Haircare.

Shami was among the hairdressers and barbers staging a protest against Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order that prevents salons and barbershops from joining other retailers in reopening May 1.

“The governor is not allowing us to open,” said Shami. “Is he going to leave us to starvation? Absolutely not.”

The rally took place outside of Shami’s company headquarters in north Houston.

Hairdressers and barbers carried signs that read, “Let us work and choose,” “love my state, love my governor, love freedom more,” and “beauty salons have been safe even before COVID-19.”

“Every comb, every brush, every instrument, every scissor, every clipper has to be sanitized, okay?” said Shami. “We wear gloves all the time. Masks when we’re applying color—all of that. The law requirement of safety is what we practice every day. Restaurants don’t have that.”

The governor says salons and barbershops won’t be allowed to reopen until May 18 at the earliest, but hairdressers are hoping their protest will convince him to change that order to an earlier date. In the meantime, some barbershops have had to shutter their business permanently due to an inability to pay rent at their shops.

Farouk Systems, Inc. Rallies to Reopen the Salon Industry

Farouk Systems, Inc. Rallies to Reopen the Salon Industry

Hairstylists, barbers and salon owners gathered at the Farouk Systems, Inc. headquarters in Houston, on April 30th, to call on Texas Governor Greg Abbott to reopen the salon industry amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Please give us the opportunity to earn our living and practice our profession,” said Dr. Farouk Shami, Founder and Chairman of Farouk Systems, Inc at the Hairstylist Appreciation Rally.

Attendees flocked to the haircare company grounds on Hairstylist Appreciation Day while wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) and maintaining a social distance to hear Shami speak. The haircare mogul explained that the salon industry is prepared and well trained to keep both staff and clients safe and healthy.

“We are licensed for safety,” said Shami. “The first class that we [take] is on safety. […] Sanitation is our specialty before we start any service, and we are capable of instructing others on how to be safe.”

Under phase one of the government’s federal guidelines, only restaurants, retailers and movie theaters were given the greenlight to reopen business on Friday, May 1st.

The haircare entrepreneur urged the governor to consider salons and barbershops as essential businesses for phase one reopening, and he is hopeful his message will be heard.

“We are needed […] to help people feel good about themselves,” said Shami. “We are an important part of the economy of the state of Texas, and we are ready to serve our community.”

Farouk Systems, Inc. Donates Personal Protective Equipment and Hand Sanitizer to City of Houston

After an initial donation of $1 million worth of CHI Natural Gardens Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer to the City of Houston, Farouk Systems, Inc. is continuing to make an impact on the global health threat of COVID-19.

The Texas-based haircare company recently made another donation to the City of Houston that included 7,500 CHI KN95 Protective Masks, 7,500 CHI Surgical Masks, four 50 gallon drums of CHI Natural Gardens Hand Sanitizer and 1,600 shampoos and conditioners.

“We are ready to serve our community,” said Farouk Shami, Founder and Chairman of Farouk Systems, Inc. “[…] We are ready to provide what the market needs so we can save lives.”

The donation announcement of the FDA-approved hand sanitizer and specialized masks was given at a news conference held by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner at City Hall. The Houston Mayor announced that the items will be distributed to frontline workers, first responders, and people in adverse communities in an effort to fight the spread of coronavirus.

“Farouk Shami has a history of generously assisting communities,” Turner said. “I thank him on behalf of the City of Houston.”

Farouk Systems, Inc. continues to work diligently to meet the demand and provide millions of hand sanitizer bottles locally and nationally.

“We are working around-the-clock to save our industry, to save the United States of America,” Shami said. “We are united in [the fight against] coronavirus.”
