New Companion Foaming Antibacterial Hand Soap kills 99.9 percent of harmful bacteria, the company says, yet has a light, fresh scent, and will not dry out skin with frequent use. The new hand soap, which is intended for use with water, joins Neogen’s Companion product line, which also features a waterless hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and a hard/nonporous surface disinfectant. Its active ingredient is benzalkonium chloride (0.13 percent), with a formulation that is free of phthalate and silicone. The product is available in 16.9-ounce containers featuring hand pumps, suitable for use at the sink, and 1-gallon refill-sized containers. The hand soap is also compatible for use with Neogen’s Foam Dispenser Unit, a touchless automatic dispenser that is available for use with a floor stand.
