Ecolab Introduces Equi-Soft Foam


Ecolab has launched Equi-Soft™ Foam – a new mild antimicrobial hand soap for the healthcare environment. Using benzalkonium chloride as the active ingredient, Equi-Soft™ Foam delivers the efficacy of a medicated soap with the mildness of the market-leading non-medicated soap.(1,2) This Triclosan-free formula empowers healthcare workers with an alternative for diverse antimicrobial hand soap needs. Unlike harsh soaps that can impede handwashing compliance, Equi-Soft™ Foam is formulated to be gentle to skin and is also paraben-free and dye-free to reduce risk of irritation. It kills standard healthcare micro-organisms as well as MDR Acinetobacter, VRE, CRE and multiple strains of MRSA. It is also compatible with chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) products and is available in multiple dispensing options including Ecolab’s Nexa platform.
