Key Features of Solopol GrittyFOAM

A New Science of Suspension

Solopol® GrittyFOAM® is the most significant innovation in our 70 year involvement in industrial hand cleansing and fuses our market leading foam science with truly cutting edge dispensing technology. It is the perfect combination of effective heavy duty cleaning ingredients with non-abrasive bio-scrubbers™, dispensed in a powerful foam format to remove many types of industrial contaminants.

It is simply better, faster and more preferred than all conventional hand cleansers.

Utilising the ‘Science of Suspension’, heavy duty hand cleansing liquid is transformed into a rich-cream foam containing uniquely suspended deep-cleaning bio-scrubbers™, which are less abrasive than traditional scrubbing agents. As the product passes through the patented dispensing pump, it is infused with air to deliver five times more volume than the liquid form.

The easy spreadability of Solopol® GrittyFOAM® allows for fast cleaning and rinsing, are the direct result of the ingredient system and foam format.

Better For Safety

Background

It is estimated that 10-15 percent of all occupational illness is caused by skin disease, ranging from chapped, sore skin to serious instances of occupational dermatitis. Skin disease can result in serious problems for employers, including absence from work and reduced productivity, compensation and compliance issues, low staff morale and even possible health and safety violations. The ultimate cost of these problems can be significant and is often under-reported.

The choice of hand hygiene and skin care products can make a significant difference in reducing the occurrence of these problems.

Why Solopol® GrittyFOAM®?

Solopol® GrittyFOAM® has been specifically formulated to combine the cleaning power of a traditional heavy duty hand cleanser with the gentleness of foam. It is a significant development to help address the desire of occupational dermatologists and safety professionals to provide milder, safer products that still do the job effectively and efficiently.

Better for Cost Efficiency

Solopol® GrittyFOAM® has been designed and formulated to handle tough hand cleansing jobs in the most cost-effective manner. Simply put, with Solopol® GrittyFOAM®, less is more.

More Hand Washes Per Litre

3ml of liquid cleanser is transformed into five times the volume in foam – the optimal amount to clean ingrained soiled hands and providing up to 45% more hand washes per litre compared to conventional hand cleansers.

Less Water and Energy

Using foam reduces the amount of water needed to lather and rinse hands, reducing water consumption and energy used.

Less Dispenser Investment

Patented Solopol® GrittyFOAM® dispensers are GUARANTEED FOR LIFE, requiring no future investment.

Less Skin Care Products Required

Solopol® GrittyFOAM® is designed to remove many industrial contaminants, from light through to medium/heavy soiling, helping to reduce the need for multiple cleansers.

Less Irritation

The gentle Solopol® GrittyFOAM® formulation removes tough dirt and grime without the potential irritation that can be caused by more aggressive conventional heavy duty hand cleaners. This helps to reduce the risk of the business and personal costs associated with the incidence of work-related skin disease, such as absence from work and lost/reduced productivity.

Those responsible for the safety and well-being of employees in the workplace understand that the choice of skin care products can have a significant impact on any organisations’ overall sustainability goals. Whilst changing skin care products in use is an investment in time, we believe that choosing Solopol® GrittyFOAM® will introduce safety and environmental impact improvements that can help drive cost efficiencies well beyond the cost of product and dispensers themselves.
