Antimicrobial foam handwash introduced
GOJO Industries has announced PROVON® Antimicrobial Foam Handwash with 2% Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG).
The company said the new formulation exceeds the FDA Healthcare Personnel Handwash requirements and is mild enough for everyday use.
It is fragrance- and dye-free and rinses quickly. It is also compatible with latex gloves, the company said.
"This CHG formulation delivers strong germ kill as well as an unexpected mildness not usually associated with CHG handwashes and surgical scrubs. 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,” said Jeff Hall, healthcare business vice president and general manager for GOJO.
