An Innovation in Heavy Duty Hand Cleaning
Unlike traditional heavy duty soaps and hand cleaners, Solopol® GFX™ is effective in removing the toughest dirt, grease and grime without damaging your skin.
Solopol® GFX™ does not contain harsh solvents or pumice, safeguarding against dry, cracked skin. Its rich, patented foamy lather covers the skin better than traditional heavy duty cleaners so you get a more complete wash. And, it rinses away quickly without clogging your drains. Your hands deserve Solopol® GFX™!
Key Features of Solopol® GFX™
Solopol® GFX™ is the most significant innovation in our 80-year involvement in industrial hand cleaning and fuses our market leading foam science with truly cutting-edge dispensing technology. It is the perfect combination of effective heavy duty cleaning ingredients with non-abrasive scrubbers, dispensed in a powerful foam format to remove many types of industrial contaminants.
It is simply better, faster and more preferred than all other conventional hand cleaners.
Utilizing the ‘Science of Suspension’, heavy duty hand cleaning liquid is transformed into a rich-cream foam containing uniquely suspended deep-cleaning dual scrubbers, which are less abrasive than traditional scrubbing agents. As the product passes through the patented dispensing pump, it is infused with air to deliver five times more volume than the liquid form.
The easy spreadability of Solopol® GFX™ that allows for fast cleaning and rinsing, is the direct result of the ingredient system and foam format.
Solopol® GFX™ is a solvent-free heavy duty Power Foam hand cleaner with cornmeal and olive pit scrubbing agents for professional use to remove dirt, grime, oil and grease. Lightly fragranced.
Where to use: For use in industrial environments to effectively remove heavy soilings such as oil, grease, carbon black, lubricants and general dirt and grime.
Highly Effective Solvent-Free Formula

It is estimated that 10-15 percent of all occupational illness is caused by skin disease, ranging from chapped, sore skin to serious instances of occupational dermatitis. Skin disease can result in serious problems for employers, including absence from work and reduced productivity, compensation and compliance issues, low staff morale and even possible health and safety violations. The ultimate cost of these problems can be significant and is often under-reported.
The choice of hand hygiene and skin care products can make a significant difference in reducing the occurrence of these problems.
Why Solopol® GFX™?
Solopol® GFX™ has been specifically formulated to combine the cleaning power of a traditional heavy duty hand cleaner with the gentleness of foam. It is a significant development to help address the desire of occupational dermatologists and safety professionals to provide milder, safer products that still do the job effectively and efficiently.

Solopol® GFX™ quickly and efficiently cleans hands in medium to heavy duty industrial environments. Simply put, with Solopol® GFX™, less is more.
More Hand Washes Per Liter
2.8mL of liquid cleaner is transformed into five times the volume in foam – the optimal amount to clean ingrained soiled hands and providing up to 42% more hand washes per liter compared to conventional hand cleaners.
Less Water and Energy
Using foam reduces the amount of water needed to lather and rinse hands, reducing water consumption and energy used.
Less Dispenser Investment
Patented Solopol® GFX™ dispenser is LIFETIME WARRANTY, requiring no future investment.
Less Skin Care Products Required
Solopol® GFX™ is designed to remove many industrial contaminants, helping to reduce the need for multiple cleaners.
The gentle Solopol® GFX™ formulation removes tough dirt and grime without the potential irritation that can be caused by more aggressive conventional heavy duty hand cleaners. This helps to reduce the risk of the business and personal costs associated with the incidence of work-related skin disease, such as absence from work and lost/reduced productivity.
Those responsible for the safety and well-being of employees in the workplace understand that the choice of skin care products can have a significant impact on any organizations’ overall sustainability goals. While changing skin care products in use is an investment in time, we believe that choosing Solopol® GFX™ will introduce safety and environmental impact improvements that can help drive cost efficiencies well beyond the cost of product and dispensers themselves.
