Developed for those who work in oil, grease and other medium to heavy soils, GOJO ECOPREFERRED Pumice Hand Cleaner delivers GOJO cleaning performance and environmental credibility by achieving UL's ECOLOGO Certification.

ECOLOGO Certification is awarded to products that demonstrate both effective performance compared to traditional products on the market and environmental leadership based on the product's proven ability to meet or exceed strict third party standards for a range of human health and environmental impacts.

GOJO ECOPREFERRED Pumice Hand Cleaner is also a USDA Certified Biobased product with an 85% biobased formulation. To qualify for USDA BioPreferred Program's certification, hand cleaners must have a minimum of 64% biobased content. Certified biobased, as recognized by the Department of Agriculture, is a measurement of a product's 'new' carbon content relative to its overall carbon content. New carbon is derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials. Fossil carbon is derived from petroleum (oil). The presence of new carbon can be one important attribute in a product's overall environmental sustainability.

"We congratulate GOJO on achieving USDA biobased certification for this new hand cleaner," said Kate Lewis, Deputy Program Manager of the USDA BioPreferred Program. "Their investment into biobased as a product attribute decreases our Nation's reliance on petroleum, increases the value of agriculture commodities, and moves us all toward the new bioeconomy."

The readily biodegradable formulation is powered by naturally renewable ingredients, natural scrubbers, and contains no petroleum solvents. GOJO ECOPREFERRED Pumice Hand Cleaner is available in gallon and half gallon recyclable HDPE bottles with pump dispensers for convenient use.

"GOJO ECOPREFERRED Pumice Hand Cleaner demonstrates our company's commitment to addressing customer needs through product innovation that advances social, environmental and economic sustainability," said Harold Tyreman, Sales and Marketing Vice President for automotive and industrial markets. "This new addition to our portfolio delivers sustainable value by combining the superior cleaning performance expected from GOJO with skin health benefits for hardworking hands, while supporting customers' sustainability objectives."

UL Environment Vice President and General Manager Lisa Meier said, "Highlighting its achievement of UL's ECOLOGO Certification for its ECOPREFERRED Pumice Hand Cleaner allows GOJO to demonstrate its commitment to the health and safety of customers and to our environment."

The new hand cleaner is part of a portfolio of hand cleaners and conditioners that comprise a complete hand hygiene regimen for healthy skin in tough environments by GOJO.
