by Brianna Crandall — August 11, 2021 — Akron, Ohio-based Gojo Industries, the makers of Purell products, recently announced the launch of its latest surface hygiene innovations — Purell Professional Surface Disinfecting Wipes and Purell Foodservice Surface Sanitizing Wipes. The new products are designed to deliver a combination of powerful efficacy and peace of mind.
According to the company, Purell Surface Wipes quickly eliminate 99.9% of bacteria and viruses of concern, including cold and flu, norovirus, strep, Salmonella, Listeria, E. coli, whooping cough, MRSA, and VRE, and kill the coronavirus that causes Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2) in only 30 seconds. Additionally, they have earned the EPA’s lowest allowable toxicity rating (Category IV), meaning they don’t require gloves, handwashing, or rinsing after use — even on food-contact surfaces.
Jessica McCoy, chief solutions officer, Gojo Industries, stated:
Our new Purell Surface Wipes deliver on what millions have come to expect from our brand, products without trade-offs that are both worry-free and effective. Our breakthrough formulation was developed by our team backed by decades of hygiene expertise and scientific leadership. Using Purell products sends a clear signal to customers and employers that the business cares about their cleanliness, health, and well-being.
Purell Surface Wipes are designed to be used in a variety of professional and foodservice settings where frequent and fast disinfection of hard surfaces are needed, including schools, offices, restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, and health and fitness facilities.
The new offering builds upon the Purell brand’s successful entry into surface products that originated with its Purell Sanitizing and Disinfecting Sprays, which are used for daily disinfection of hard or soft surfaces where broader coverage is needed.
