The SC Johnson Professional Foam Soap Story

A pioneer in the hand care space, SC Johnson Professional created the industry’s first foam soap for the professional sector over 20 years ago. Identifying a need to improve the way people wash their hands in public spaces, we invested in research and development (R&D) and created a new and innovative way for people to wash their hands.

The company produced a soap formulation and dispensing technology that delivers foam soap, thus changing the way people wash their hands in public settings. Foam soap is less likely to drip from hands when being dispensed than lotion soap, reducing drippage onto the countertops, keeping the restroom looking tidy. Only one dose is required to provide effective hand cleansing, providing over 30% more washes per liter and using 36% less product compared to lotion soap. Additionally, it can save up to 45% on water consumption during handwashing compared to lotion soaps.

SC Johnson Professional has applied this groundbreaking technology to other hand hygiene products, including its hand sanitizer. Foam sanitizer rapidly and easily rubs across hands, providing the user with complete control of the product. This helps prevent the dripping and splashing associated with using liquid alcohol sanitizers.

From invention to perfection, SC Johnson Professional has been leading the way in foam soap for decades and is constantly investing in R&D to continue to drive the industry forward.
