The new Deb Stoko range: combatting occupational skin issues in commercial premises
Deb has launched its new Deb Stoko range - the broadest range of products designed specifically for occupational skincare across a variety of industries including the commercial sector.
The portfolio of Deb Stoko hand cleansers, sanitisers and after-work restore creams have been formulated to address and reduce the spread of infection as well as the risk of occupational skin disease.
In 2013 alone, employee absence from work as a result of sickness, cost UK businesses over £28bn. In addition to this significant economic loss, for the employee, the ramifications of such skin conditions can be damaging on an individual level - both in terms of lost income resulting from a prolonged absence from work, as well as the impact on their personal life and general wellbeing.
Through the use of Deb Stoko products and by implementing a three-step skin programme in the workplace - cleanse, sanitise, restore - businesses will be better placed to maintain a happy, healthy workforce. Products from the range that are particularly well-suited for the commercial sector include:
* Refresh - foam soap solutions for washrooms that contain skin conditioners to improve skin hydration and prevent dryness. Available in a range of fragrances.
* InstantFoam Complete - unique, hypo-allergenic, hand sanitising foam with highly effective formula that kills 99.999% of common germs.
* Stokolan Hand & Body - moisturising lotion for hand and body, featuring a specialised formulation to hydrate the skin and encourage natural skin regeneration.
In addition to the most expansive range of occupational skincare products available, Deb provides employers and employees with training and supporting educational materials to help encourage stakeholder buy-in on an issue that is largely overlooked within the commercial sector.
"Occupational skin disease is a serious health issue that goes largely unreported in the workplace: an invisible threat that affects both an organisation's efficiency and the health and wellbeing of its employees," says Paul Jakeway, marketing director at Deb UK.
"This is where the new Deb Stoko range comes in. The products and usage programme address the skincare requirements of all end users. They are essential for effective skin health and in reducing the risk of occupational skin disease."
For over 80 years, Deb Group has been establishing skincare regimes for all types of workplace and public environments, spanning industrial, automotive, healthcare, commercial, hotels, restaurants, catering and leisure, food manufacturing and retail sectors.
Deb comprises 21 companies operating in 16 countries, with Deb products sold in over 100 countries. It is estimated that 40 million people use Deb products every day.
