GOJO Industries, a producer and marketer of skin health and hygiene solutions, has announced the introduction of its latest formulation, PROVON Antimicrobial Foam Handwash with 2% Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG).
This new formulation, which exceeds the FDA Healthcare Personnel Handwash requirements, is gentle on hands making it mild enough for everyday use. This non-irritating, hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested formulation maintains the skin’s natural moisture barrier. It also is fragrance and dye free, leaves hands feeling clean and soft, rinses quickly with no sticky residue and is compatible with latex gloves.
“This CHG formulation delivers strong germ kill as well as an unexpected mildness not usually associated with CHG handwashes and surgical scrubs,” said Jeff Hall, healthcare business vice president and general manager, GOJO. “We know hand hygiene plays a critical role in protecting patient safety and reducing germ transmission, but practicing good hand hygiene can be difficult on your hands when you are not using the right products.” •
