Testing provides additional reassurance that PURELL® products are safe, effective, and pleasant to use
Skin health and surface hygiene expert, GOJO Industries-Europe, is proud that the PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitising Gel and PURELL Surface Sanitising Spray and Wipes have been tested and proven to be effective against Coronavirus. In June 2020, all three products were tested against Coronavirus BcoV (bovine coronavirus, a substitute for human coronavirus) and passed European Norm EN 14476+ A2 in a contact time of 30 seconds.
That these solutions have been proven to kill Coronavirus within just 30 seconds will provide additional confidence for businesses welcoming employees back to their premises, helping to ensure their workplaces are COVID secure.
PURELL® Surface Sanitising Spray and Wipes are no-rinse products that are fast acting, highly effective and specifically designed to meet surface sanitising needs, whilst PURELL® Hygienic Hand Rub is an effective hand sanitiser, clinically proven to maintain skin health.
Even though PURELL® products had already passed the EN norm for enveloped viruses (which assumes efficacy), GOJO decided to test it against Coronavirus specifically. This is just one way that GOJO goes above and beyond to support its customers, making sure products are safe, effective, and pleasant to use.
The pandemic has driven demand for hand hygiene products from businesses that didn’t previously prioritise their use, and as such, have limited knowledge about how and where to implement systems. As a result, GOJO has developed a range of tools to help them understand what products they need and where they should be positioned, including posters, product placement guides, and what to look for in a hand sanitiser. Assets are available for food-based industries, education, manufacturing/warehouses, and offices and can be downloaded for free from http://ww2.gojo.com/ReturnToWork.html or direct from GOJO distributors.
Chris Wakefield, Vice President, European Marketing & Product Development, GOJO Industries-Europe Ltd comments, ‘We have always been a strong advocate of making hand hygiene second nature to everybody. Part of making this happen is to ensure that facilities are available in the optimal places. Our new assets not only help businesses achieve this, but also support our distributors, saving them time by answering the many questions they are now facing.
He continues, ‘Another essential factor in influencing hygienic behaviour is to provide solutions that are kind to skin but effective. PURELL ® products have been trusted for decades to care for skin and eliminate germs safely and effectively – we are pleased that we can now officially include Coronavirus as one of the many viruses they kill.’
