Washroom Hygiene


Facilities management teams will be working hard to plan how to keep customers safe when they are allowed to re-open and washroom hygiene will play a crucial part in that.

A key element will be the provision of hand sanitiser within washrooms, alongside the traditional products. Hand sanitisers are seeing unprecedented demand and Delphis Eco is an expert in this area.

Delphis Eco’s Hand Sanitiser Foam contains the maximum amount of QUAT allowed in ‘leave on’ products in accordance with the EU Cosmetic Safety Regulations. The product itself has not been tested against enveloped viruses, as there is already published information supporting the ability of QUAT to kill enveloped viruses, similar to Covid-19.

The important thing to note is that with alcohol-based sanitisers in the form of gel a product, have to contain a minimum of 60% alcohol, for a QUAT to work, it needs to be a 0.003%. This is why QUAT’s are used to clean hospitals, they are effective, yet much kinder to the environment.

Delphis Eco is receiving an increasing number of enquiries regarding the ingredients within its products including hand sanitiser, as people are becoming more conscious of ensuring customer safety.

Current global shortage of pump action dispenser tops

A global shortage of the pump action dispenser tops and trigger pumps has meant that anti-bacterial hand soaps and gels are being held up in getting out to consumers and on shelves to people who desperately need these products. With China and Italy the main producers of world supply and with no sign of factories re-opening, the situation will soon become critical.

In a bid to alleviate the situation, Delphis Eco has got together with First Mile Recycling to offer a FREE recycling service to try and get stocks back in of the bottle closures, to enable supply. First Mile will then sort the items before returning them to Delphis to be refilled and reused. It’s a small action with a big impact. Every bottle closure that is returned means another bottle of anti-bacterial hand soap or gel that will be out on the shelf, waging war against C-19.

As some businesses prepare for re-opening and begin to plan a deep clean of their business, Delphis Eco has experienced a significant increase in enquires from potential new clients who are looking to use sustainable cleaning products going forward rather than their previously less sustainable supplier.

Buying cleaning and hygiene products from more sustainable brands is becoming more of a priority for many businesses.

Delphis Eco has made its name as the British-made brand that uses all natural ingredients, yet is highly effective in tackling the jobs in hand. The extensive range offered to cleaners is phosphate free and contain no or very little VOC’s (volatile organic compounds), which are some of the most damaging contents historically found in cleaning chemicals. All the company’s products are plant based, ecological and readily biodegradable, yet proved in tests remain 98% more effective than their competitors. Every product has been developed for its eco-friendly properties, but with no loss in effectiveness in tackling the job in hand.

Delphis Eco has worked with specialist recyclers to launch, what at the time, was believed to be the world’s 1st 100% recycled PCR packaging for all its products. The packaging is food grade quality, as not only can 100% recycled plastic be used in general supply, but it also has a future in how food is packaged and marketed to consumers. Additionally, the labels for all its bottles are printed with vegetable ink and boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard, even the liner is recycled.
