Deb USA Launches Deb InstantFOAM® Complete – The Complete Solution for Hand Sanitizing

Monday, February 29, 2016

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Deb Group has launched Deb InstantFOAM® Complete – the world’s first broad spectrum foam hand sanitizer that kills up to 99.9999 percent of many types of germs.

Deb InstantFOAM® Complete is part of the new Deb Stoko® Range and has been created for critical hand hygiene situations where closed or semi-closed quarters may increase the likelihood of outbreaks, such as cruise ships, healthcare and the food industry. Using patented Deb Foam Technology™, the unique perfume-free & dye-free alcohol-based liquid is dispensed as soft-structured foam and designed to be used without water to provide a complete solution for hand sanitizing, combining safety and preference with highly effective broad spectrum efficacy.

Deb InstantFOAM® Complete works by directly dissolving the bacteria cell membrane and denaturizing the constitutive proteins and enzymes, killing germs extremely quickly without any risk of damaging the skin’s natural antibacterial resistance. In doing so, the sanitizer is highly effective against a broad spectrum of potential threats; while its moisturizing agents leave the skin feeling smooth after use, helping to avoid skin dryness, often associated with the use of some sanitizers in high frequency usage settings.

Unlike with liquids, foam does not run off the hands and provides the user with complete control of the product without dripping or splashing, ensuring the full dose is applied effectively with every application. Compared with gels, foam does not contain gelling agents that leave the hands feeling sticky, particularly after multiple applications. Because Deb InstantFOAM® Complete has been formulated to be used without water; the product can be used in any work environment, on-the-go or public area.

The significance of its fast-acting, scientifically-proven formula is that it is 1,000 times more effective than one that kills 99.9 percent. In the context of hand hygiene, where as many as 10 million transient bacteria cells can be found on the end of just one finger, the extra “9s” could prove critical in the prevention of transmitting potentially deadly infections – of which it only requires a count of between 10 and 100 cells to cause illness.

“We are delighted to announce the launch of Deb InstantFOAM® Complete, quite simply because it can make the difference in ensuring the highest levels of hand hygiene in the circumstances that require it most,” said Isabelle Faivre, Vice President Marketing, Deb North America. “Our hands are the main route for the transmission of potentially deadly bacteria, and it is an issue that is often overlooked. By incorporating hand hygiene best practices into any given facilities, supported by the sanitization effectiveness that Deb InstantFOAM® Complete brings, organizations can provide an unprecedented level of protection from harmful pathogens for their staff, patients or customers.”

Deb InstantFOAM® Complete is available in a range of pump bottles (47ml, and 400ml), 1L cartridges and manual or touch-free dispensers (1L) for easy access in hand hygiene sensitive environments. The products are certified USDA BioPreferred, UL Ecologo and NSF E3.
