According to CleanWell, Simplehuman chose it based on its sanitizer's alcohol-free formula that helps produce a consistent foam when mixed with air in the custom-designed simplehuman pump. The absence of harmful chemicals such as triclosan, benzalkonium chloride and parabens also played a role in the decision, according to the Denver-based provider of botanical-based personal care and household cleaning products
CleanWell uses a proprietary antibacterial formulation based on thymol. The sanitizer is readily biodegradable, has a non-medicinal smell, is kid-friendly and non-drying, and has never been tested on animals.
The CleanWell hand sanitizer joins a list of premium soap brands and fragrances that are delivered in a mess-free, click-in cartridge system designed exclusively for use with the simplehuman pump. The pump itself features unique air-injection technology that turns liquid soap products into a pre-lathered foam as well as a motion sensor for touch-free dispensing, variable volume dispensing depending on the distance of the user's hand from the sensor, and no-battery rechargeability with one charge lasting up to three months.
"We wanted to bring the convenience of a touch-free pump, combined with the luxurious lather of foam, into the home to provide the best hand-washing experience," said Frank Yang, founder and CEO of simplehuman. "The addition of Clean Well's hand sanitizer to our assortment provides consumers with a non-soap option that is also eco-friendly."
