Rubbermaid Introduces Flex Skin Care System

Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP) introduces its comprehensive skin care solution in the away-from-home washroom category, the Rubbermaid FLex (Foam Liquid Excellence) TC Skin Care System.  

Research suggests 80 percent of germs are transmitted by hand(1) and 23 percent of adults, and an even larger percentage of children, dont wash their hands after using public washrooms,(2) explaining why the Center for Disease Control and Prevention insists hand washing is the number one way to reduce the spread of disease, says Victoria Ciupak, senior product manager of skin care for Rubbermaid Commercial Products. With those statistics in mind, we developed the new Rubbermaid FLex TC Skin Care System around three pillars of health -- personal, economic and environmental mealth. 

Ciupak adds, Designed for schools, universities, locker rooms, showers, restaurants, and office buildings, the Rubbermaid FLex Systems offer the flexibility of foam and liquid refills in one dispenser, with the highest number of hand washes (up to 3,250 per refill). Additionally, the adjustable portion control helps provide a superior hand washing experience, at lower cost-in-use, all within an environmentally responsible innovative hygiene solution.

The Rubbermaid FLex systems feature the RCP TC® EnrichedFoam and TC® EnrichedLotion skin care products that provide luxurious lather, delightful fragrances, and effective skin conditioners for a quality experience that encourages good personal hygiene. The hygienically-sealed disposable refills keep soap fresh and germ free, further encouraging handwashing.

With up to four times more hand washes than traditional bag-in-box soaps, the Rubbermaid FLex system soaps and dispensers with their concentrated formula and easy dose on-unit adjustable lever deliver up to 60 percent lower cost-in-use than competitive systems. Rubbermaid FLex Skin Care Dispensers are durable, reliable, low-maintenance systems that offer industry-leading battery life with transitional styling that compliments any décor.

The Rubbermaid FLex System offers biodegradable soaps and Green Seal products that meet higher environmental standards that help earn LEED credits. From green certified and anti-bacterial hand soaps to body washes, hand sanitizers, and skin lotion (in foam or liquid), the box-less refills evacuate fully to reduce waste and the dispensers are fully ADA compliant for operation and mounting depth.
