PGP Presents Holistic and Sustainable Solutions for Skin Care and Hand Hygiene at Interclean
The Corona pandemic has once again reinforced the importance of hand hygiene and occupational skin care. At Interclean, the world's largest cleaning and hygiene trade fair, the German skin care specialists from Peter Greven Physioderm (PGP) will be presenting their extensive range of services and advice, as well as their wide-ranging commitment to sustainability. The right dispensing systems for every workplace will also be shown at the PGP booth. The PGP team around the Dutch skin care consultant Paul van Delft will present its professional skin care solutions at booth 12.609 and is looking forward to interesting discussions and many visitors.
The need for information on the topics of occupational skin care and hand hygiene is enormous. This trend has been further reinforced by the Corona pandemic. Therefore, skin care manufacturers must offer much more than just products; service and individual advice are essential. The German market leader PGP has a close-knit service network and offers individual advice on site. Founded in 1923 and now in its third generation, the family-owned company is the innovation leader in the German industry. The skin care experts work closely with research institutes to constantly find new solutions for users. The globally active manufacturer offers solutions for skin protection, skin cleansing, skin care and hand disinfection. PGP serves customers in the service, industrial and craft sectors. In the Benelux countries, Dutch skin care consultant Paul van Delft is on the road for the globally active manufacturer, providing customers with holistic, systematic and ongoing advice on all aspects of occupational skin care. He visits the companies, conducts an analysis together with occupational physicians and safety officers, and presents PGP's effective and skin-friendly products and solutions to the customers. This is part of the extensive service portfolio that the skin care experts are presenting at the world's leading trade fair for the laundry, cleaning and rental textiles industry in Amsterdam.
The Right Dispensing System for Every Application
Even the most effective products for hand disinfection, skin protection, cleaning or care are ineffective if they are not used and dosed correctly. Thus, dispensing systems are an essential part of any hand hygiene and skin care concept. PGP will be presenting modern dispensing systems for every challenge at the Interclean show.
A classic dispensing system - especially in medium-sized and large companies in industry and trade - is the Variomat system. All Variomat models are very efficient and robust. Even in continuous use, they show hardly any signs of wear and are virtually maintenance-free. This makes them very economical to maintain. The Variomat dispensers are fitted with 1- or 2-liter Vario bottles. Even when heavily used, the dispensers do not have to be constantly refilled thanks to the large containers. Unlike many conventional devices, the pump is not located on the dispenser but directly on the bottle. Therefore, it is replaced every time the bottle is changed, which is a great advantage in terms of hygiene and product safety.
The ideal solution for use in administration, medium-sized industrial plants and public areas is the Neptune dispensing system. With their smooth, compact and unobtrusive shape, the dispensers offer an appealing design - even in prestigious areas. All Neptune models are highly functional and universally applicable. They have a capacity of one liter and dispense creams and lotions as well as gels, liquid and foam products. The integrated Clean Tip technology automatically cleans the pump spout after each use. This ensures maximum hygiene while minimizing dripping. All Neptune models are extremely low-maintenance and easy to use.
Easy handling, optimum dosing, very good residual emptying and the greatest possible hygiene: these are the features that distinguish the E-Touch dispenser. It works contact-free by means of an infrared sensor and is absolutely hygienic, as the product does not come into contact with the dispenser. The dispenser can be mounted on the wall, or alternatively it can be used flexibly anywhere with the optionally available mobile table stand.
Sustainability as Part of the Corporate Philosophy
Another topic at the booth is sustainability. As a family-owned company that looks back on almost 100 years of history, it has always been important at PGP to think beyond the day. Accordingly, the topic of sustainability is firmly anchored in the company's philosophy. For example, to ensure social and environmental quality standards of important suppliers, PGP has a long-term sustainable purchasing strategy. There are clear decision-making criteria for the selection of suppliers, according to which the suppliers must fulfill certain aspects and requirements with regard to their social and ecological responsibility. These include, for example, the observance of human rights and the prohibition of child and forced labor.
In the area of raw materials, over 90 percent of the ingredients used come from renewable sources: PGP does not use microplastics and replaces mineral oil with natural oils wherever possible. For example, palm kernel oil certified by the RSPO ("Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil") is used. Awards for cleaning products such as the Blue Angel and the EU Ecolabel show that the company is on the right track with its sustainability efforts.
PGP has also set qualitative sustainability targets for packaging. These include the use of plastic recyclates and recycled cardboard packaging as well as the switch to lighter and smaller packaging in order to reduce CO2 emissions during transport. CO2 reduction is also served by the very powerful photovoltaic system at the company headquarters in Euskirchen, which covers a large part of the electricity consumption with solar energy.
The PGP team is looking forward to having many interesting discussions and numerous guests at Interclean and invites all interested parties to visit booth 12.609.
