Industrial hand cleaning
Industrial hand cleaning innovation developed by workers, for workers
Industrial workers are faced with many challenging environments, often exposed to dirt and contamination on a daily basis. These conditions have led to frequent hand washing, with many workers said to be using soaps that are too mild or too harsh for their skin.
Developed through significant testing and focus groups with workers, Deb has created a range of industrial hand cleaners which, the company says, provides ‘XTRA Power and XTRA Care’.

Deb says that test with workers in real conditions has shown that 77% of workers prefer FX compared to their existing washroom soap and that 73% agreed that it left their hands feeling conditioned after use.
