Purell products effective against Coronavirus

PURELL® products effective against Coronavirus

Our mission is to save lives and enhance the well-being of our customers. That’s why we continuously and rigorously test  the effectiveness of our products – including testing against Coronavirus. With the PURELL range, you know you are using safe and effective products.

Sanitisers with an alcohol content of at least 60 percent are officially recommended, particularly when dealing with Coronavirus. As coronaviruses are enveloped viruses, sanitisers should be tested against this kind of virus for proof of efficiacy. If possible, you should select products that have been specifically tested on a Coronavirus surrogate. For example, all the products listed below have been tested against Coronavirus BCoV (surrogate virus), according to standard EN 14476, and shown to be active in 30 seconds.

Beware of non-tested products

When choosing the hygiene products, you should bear in mind that not every hand sanitising product that is currently on the market has been tested to meet the necessary quality standards.

“The FDA has issued warnings, alerts, and bans on more than 100 hand sanitisers for being unsafe or ineffective, including products contaminated with methanol and 1-propanol, both toxic ingredients”, states Carey Jaros, President and CEO at GOJO.  “For us at GOJO, nothing is as important as making sure that everywhere from classrooms and restaurants, to hospitals and homes have access to the highest quality formulations of hand sanitiser. In line with our GOJO Purpose of Saving Lives and Making Life Better, never have we felt more responsibility to deliver on this promise.”

Stay healthy!
