Purell brand extends portfolio with launch of surface disinfecting and sanitising sprays

* Purell.jpgGojo is adding a range of surface disinfecting and sanitising products to its Purell brand; best known for its hand sanitisers. The new products are aimed at the foodservice, healthcare and professional markets.

"People and businesses want to effectively disinfect and clean their work environments, but with products that are good for them and the planet," says Steve Ashkin, a leader in the Green Cleaning Movement.

"With its science-based approach, Gojo changed the way we think about cleaning our hands, and now is revolutionising the surface spray category with products that offer powerful germ kill for MRSA, the cold and flu virus and norovirus within 30 seconds, and a no rinse food contact surface formula in addition to its Design for the Environment Certification."

Out of the 3,000 Environmental Protection Agency registered surface disinfectants and sanitisers, fewer than 100 have the EPA's Category IV lowest toxicity rating, and of those, fewer than 10 have the EPA's Design for the Environment (DfE) Certification. Purell surface disinfecting and sanitising products are claimed to have the fastest overall disinfection times for bacteria and viruses than any other DfE product, reports Gojo.

Before launching the new products, the privately held, family-owned company worked closely with scientific and sustainability thought leaders, like Steve Ashkin, as well as customers and key decision-makers in the food, healthcare and professional markets to understand the market needs and gain feedback to deliver the right solutions.

Jessica McCoy, Gojo vice president and general manager of business development, says of the launch: "Our customers want peace of mind that the hygiene products they use on their hands and surfaces are worry-free for them, the environment and do what they are intended to do - kill germs that can make us sick.

"Our new surface disinfecting and sanitising sprays work with other Purell products, and using these products throughout the day helps reduce the spread of germs that can cause illness. Our high standards for performance, people and planet are unmatched."
