SC Johnson Professional Re-Introduces AgroBac™ PURE FOAM Wash for Food Handlers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — May 24, 2021 – SC Johnson Professional re-launched its AgroBac™ PURE FOAM Wash, an antimicrobial foam hand soap with a FDA-compliant formulation specific for use in food handling and processing environments. The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) E2 rated, perfume-free and dye-free formula is effective against the most common organisms rated by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) with a reduction of at least 99.99% within 30 seconds, when used as directed.

Quick and easy to use, AgroBac™ is a dermatologist tested, skin hypoallergenic formula that can avoid causing skin irritation after use. It’s delivered in a hygienic cartridge, ultrasonically sealed during the manufacturing process to reduce the risk of external contamination.

“It’s important to use a reliable and effective hand hygiene product in settings that require high standards of hand hygiene, like food service and food manufacturing,” said Mike Flagg head of SC Johnson Professional’s North American business, “Instilling the importance of handwashing can help cut down foodborne illness outbreaks, helping to save time and money for your business.”

The use of AgroBac™ PURE FOAM Wash reduces transient bacteria on the hands from touching contaminated surfaces. An ASTM E2784 study found that one wash can remove over 99% of E. Coli bacteria transferred to the hands after touching contaminated surfaces. It contains Benzalkonium Chloride to clean hands while killing many common foodborne bacteria when used as directed.
