SC Johnson Professional relaunches innovative foam soap line
SC Johnson Professional has relaunched its Refresh foam soap line, with new formulations designed to elevate the handwashing experience. Available in a range of new signature fragrances and fragrance-free options, just one pump of product removes over 99% of dirt and germs, when used properly.
"Refresh products are designed to deliver a pleasant experience to encourage hand washing," says Mike Flagg, head of SC Johnson Professional's North American business.
"Developed based on input from facility owners, cleaning professionals, fragrance experts and users, our new foam soaps with signature fragrances have been reformulated with one of the mildest preservatives and added skin conditioners, making them pleasant on the hands and suitable for all ages.
"It's the soap handwashers will love from a brand they can trust."
As part of a comprehensive hand care program, effective hand washing can help reduce illness, absenteeism and associated costs by up to 40%, according to a meta-analysis of 45 studies conducted in 15 countries between 1998 and 2008. Whether in corporate washrooms, office spaces, retail or healthcare settings, schools or hotels, the Refresh product line delivers the quality customers want and features that redefine foam soap expectations. The formulations leave skin silky-smooth with no sticky residue.
Compared to traditional lotion soap, Refresh foam soaps are said to go beyond taking care of hands - they provide opportunity to save on costs. According to an industry study, changing to foam soap in a washroom can result in:
* 36% less product required
* 45% less water needed
* 30% more washes per litre
The Refresh line includes:
* Refresh Azure Foam - Fresh Apple... So fresh and clean, this fragrance reveals a sparkling ozone note infused with musk, lily of the valley and crisp apple.
* Refresh Rose Foam - Enchanted Rose... This fragrance casts its spell with a captivating blend of velvety rose and geranium drizzled with honey.
* Refresh AntiBac Foam - Invigorating Citrus... With an antimicrobial formulation, the Refresh AntiBac Foam soap's fragrance opens with a bright burst of lemon zest and fresh herbs. The antimicrobial formulation kills up to 99.999 percent of bacteria.
* Refresh Clear Foam - Fragrance-free and dye-free
