GOJO delivers unmatched PURELL PEACE OF MIND™  with new products, partnership, and technology


GOJO, the inventors of PURELL® Hand Sanitizer and a global leader in skin health and hygiene solutions, continually innovates to help solve real human problems through new products, partnerships, and technology. The company launched its latest innovations at the ISSA Show North America trade show, held October 29 to November 1, in Dallas, Texas.

New Products – PURELL® brand CXR REDIFOAM™ system
Casino, airport and office building facility managers have a tough job keeping counter-mount soap dispensers full and operational.  By understanding facility managers’ pain points in high-traffic buildings, GOJO invented the PURELL® brand CXR REDIFOAM™ system. The high-performance, top-fill fixture eliminates the hassles and hazards of removing heavy panels and crawling under counters to refill counter-mount soap systems. New REDIFOAM soap, designed to work hand in hand with the CXR REDIFOAM™ dispenser, keeps the dispensing fixture clean and clog-free, without the use of harsh chemicals or preservatives.  The CXR REDIFOAM™ system is part of the comprehensive PURELL® counter-mount dispensing portfolio, which includes a full range of options from simple push-style systems to elegant, top-fill, touch-free systems.

“We know the condition of the restroom affects how people perceive a business. Through our new PURELL® brand CXR REDIFOAM™ system, facilities can exceed their guests’ expectation for high-quality cleanliness standards while simplifying the facility manager’s daily tasks,” said Annie Weitz, who led the system’s development and launch team at GOJO.

New Partnership – Kimberly-Clark Professional™ and GOJO offer Smart Restroom Management System
ISSA attendees were able to learn more about an industry-first partnership that offers facility managers two best-in-class brands – SCOTT towel and bath tissue and PURELL® hand soap and hand sanitizer – as part of the ONVATION* Smart Restroom management system. The ONVATION* Smart Restroom management system leverages smart-sensing technology in both SCOTT and PURELL® systems to monitor and analyze restroom conditions in real-time to deliver powerful, actionable insights so maintenance teams can increase tenant satisfaction, reduce work orders, and have more control over building management. The ONVATION* platform is designed to integrate an entire ecosystem of technology to help facility managers work more efficiently.

New Technology – PURELL® Brand HEALTHY SOAP® with CLEAN RELEASE® Technology
PURELL® Brand CRT HEALTHY SOAP® is 90 percent naturally derived ingredients,1 free of harsh preservatives, antibacterial soap ingredients, parabens, and phthalates. The new soap formulation removes more than 99 percent of dirt and germs on skin2 and reaches into skin’s cracks and crevices two times better than regular soap.2,3 In addition to cleaner hands, PURELL® brand CRT HEALTHY SOAP® saves six gallons of water per refill compared to regular soap.4

PURELL® Brand CRT HEALTHY SOAP® was recently recognized as an Innovation of the Year finalist by the Ethical Corporation’s 9th Annual Responsible Business Awards.

“As a Family Enterprise, our GOJO Purpose of Saving Lives and Making Life Better Through Well-Being Solutions drives us to constantly innovate, and inspires our commitment to proactively managing the social, environmental, and economic impacts our business has in the world,” said Carey Jaros, Chief Operating Officer, GOJO. “Paired with our new ES8 dispensing system, which reduces battery waste by 68% versus typical touch-free dispensers, CRT HEALTHY SOAP® allows facilities to offer hand hygiene solutions to their patrons and employees – setting a new standard in being safe, effective, and good for the planet.”
