SC Johnson Professional Refreshes the Handwashing Experience with Innovative Foam Soap Line

May 7, 2019

SC Johnson Professional announced the relaunch of its Refresh™ foam soap line, with new formulations designed to elevate the handwashing experience. Available in a range of new signature fragrances and fragrance-free options, just one pump removes over 99 percent of dirt and germs, when used properly.

“Refresh products are designed to deliver a pleasant experience to encourage hand washing,” said Mike Flagg, head of SC Johnson Professional’s North American business. “Developed based on input from facility owners, cleaning professionals, fragrance experts, and users, our new foam soaps with signature fragrances have been reformulated with one of the mildest preservatives and added skin conditioners, making them pleasant on the hands and suitable for all ages.

“It’s the soap handwashers will love from a brand they can trust,” Flagg added. 

As part of a comprehensive hand care program, effective hand washing can help reduce illness, absenteeism and associated costs by up to 40 percent, according to a meta-analysis of 45 studies conducted in 15 countries between 1998 and 2008. Whether in corporate washrooms, office spaces, retail or healthcare settings, schools or hotels, the Refresh product line delivers the quality customers want and features that redefine foam soap expectations. The formulations leave skin silky-smooth with no sticky residue.

Compared to traditional lotion soap, Refresh foam soaps go beyond taking care of hands – they provide opportunity to save on costs. According to an industry study, changing to foam soap in a washroom can result in:

  • 36 percent less product required
  • 45 percent less water needed
  • 30 percent more washes per liter

Save even more on maintenance costs by pairing Refresh soaps with SC Johnson Professional’s new transparent dispensers. The Quick-View™ feature allows accurate product visibility from any distance or angle, maximizing maintenance efficiency. These dispensers are guaranteed for life, quick to refill and easy to service.

The Refresh™ line includes:

  • Refresh™ Azure FOAM – Fresh Apple 
    So fresh and clean, this fragrance reveals a sparkling ozone note infused with musk, lily of the valley and crisp apple.
  • Refresh™ Rose FOAM – Enchanted Rose 
    This fragrance casts its spell with a captivating blend of velvety rose and geranium drizzled with honey. 
  • Refresh™ AntiBac FOAM – Invigorating Citrus 
    With an antimicrobial formulation, the Refresh™ AntiBac FOAM soap’s fragrance opens with a bright burst of lemon zest and fresh herbs. The antimicrobial formulation kills up to 99.999 percent of bacteria.
  • Refresh™ Clear FOAM – Fragrance-Free and Dye-Free
