Keeping Hands Soft for Dishes

19 February 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

A mild antimicrobial handwash that is effective against a wide range of potentially harmful micro-organisms as well as not harming the skin from frequent washing has been launched by GoJo.

The sanitary sealed handwash is claimed to be particularly useful against bacteria, yeast and virus particles, while being mild to the skin.

Available in both a foam and lotion, the handwash is reportedly ‘highly successful’ at removing fats, oils and soils commonly associated with food processing. It also helps reduce cross-contamination risks in food handling sectors and is suitable for a range of other industries including healthcare.


Features include:

  • Hypoallergenic and non-irritating: pH neutral; free of dyes and fragrances.

  • Dermatologically tested and shown to have moisturising effects.

  • Biocidal product PT1 compliant.

  • Triclosan and PHMB free.

  • Made with biodegradable plant based surfactants.

  • Food Taint Test Compliant: BS EN ISO 4120:2007

Each refill comes with a fresh valve, so the soap formulation inside is not exposed to the environment; cross contamination from the air or other sources is prevented.

Time and money is also saved as the refills snap into place quickly, allowing operatives to work more quickly and effectively.

Picture: This handwash is now on the market aimed particularly at the food processing and healthcare markets
