AKRON, Ohio — As part of its latest innovations for consumers, the Purell brand is launching Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer Naturals Foam and Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer 2in1 Moisturizing Foam, the brand said Tuesday.
Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer Naturals Foam is formulated with plant-based ethanol with 91% biobased content. This product has a USDA Certified biobased formulation made with naturally renewable ethanol and is available in recyclable 10-ounce pump bottles at Walmart, Target and CVS. Gel versions of the naturals formula is also available.
Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer 2in1 Moisturizing Foam is made with a blend of moisturizing ingredients, including antioxidants and vitamins B3 and E, which hydrate and moisturize skin. The brand said the product eliminates 99.99% of germs while nourishing the skin. It is available in recyclable 10-ounce pump bottles at Walmart, Target.com and CVS. Gel versions of the 2in1 Moisturizing formula are also available.
The rich foam of both products clings to hands for sanitizing and dries quickly. Both are naturally fragranced with a blend of essential oils, which are listed on the label. Neither product contains harsh preservatives, dyes, triclosan, parabens or phthalates.
“After 75 years of developing hand hygiene products, we know that formulation is vital when it comes to alcohol-based hand sanitizer – and I think consumers have realized, and experienced, that more than ever over the past two years,” says Dawn Yeomans, Ph.D., Purell hand hygiene expert. “While the percentage of alcohol is very important, the entire formulation is what impacts its performance and the user experience – and if both of these elements aren’t there, consumers won’t want to use the product. We formulated these foam hand sanitizers specifically for consumers, so they can have peace of mind that they kill the germs that can make them sick, while also enjoying the feel, smell, and ease of use.”
