Maumee, OH. – May 20, 2014 – Spartan Chemical Company, Inc., a recognized leader in the formulation and manufacture of sustainable cleaning and sanitation solutions for the industrial and institutional market, announced today the addition of four new products to the popular Lite ‘n Foamy® anti-bacterial hand care line.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, hand hygiene is the first line of defense for the prevention of illnesses and spread of infection to others. People frequently touch their eyes, nose and mouth without realizing it, and germs from unclean hands can get into food during preparation or be transferred to objects like handrails, tabletops and toys. Along with an effective cleaning program, schools and businesses can reduce the cost associated with common illness and improve the overall health of their employees and guests by practicing effective hand hygiene.
The new Lite ‘n Foamy® products include two foaming, anti-bacterial hand sanitizers, which can be used without water, making them perfect for hallways, classrooms, stairwells and other areas where no sinks are present. They also include two fragrance-free products – one soap and one sanitizer – which are NSF-certified and Kosher-certified for use in food processing and service areas.
“We are especially pleased to manufacture our first foaming hand sanitizers,” said John Swigart, President of Spartan Chemical Company. “Because of the success of the Lite ‘n Foamy® line, we know our customers will appreciate the convenience and economy of being able to use either soap or sanitizer products in the popular Lite ‘n Foamy® dispensers.”
All four of the new products are Triclosan-free and alcohol-free. Triclosan is currently being re-evaluated by the FDA as an effective and safe ingredient. And, unlike alcohol-based sanitizers, which are not permitted for use in many facitlities such as correctional faclitities and schools, the active ingredient in Lite ‘n Foamy® hand care products is safe to use anywhere.
• Lite ‘n Foamy® Eucaplytus Mint Sanitizing Hand Wash is a foaming, anti-bacterial handwash with a refreshing herbal fragrance.
• Lite ‘n Foamy® E2 Sanitizing Hand Wash is a fragrance-free, foaming, anti-bacterial hand wash for use in food processing and service areas.
• Lite ‘n Foamy® Lemon Blossom Hand Sanitizer is a foaming, anti-bacterial hand sanitizer with a light, floral fragrance.
• Lite ‘n Foamy® E3 Hand Sanitizer is a fragrance-free, foaming, anti-bacterial hand sanitizer for use in food processing and service areas.
These and other Lite ‘n Foamy® hand care products are available through Spartan’s select distributor network. For more information or to find a distributor near you, visit www.spartanchemical.com.
