ABOUT THE PURELL® BRANDPURELL® Hand Sanitiser was invented in 1988 by GOJO in the USA to meet the needs of healthcare providers and restaurant operators looking for ways to reduce the spread of germs. Healthcare workers needed to kill germs on their hands when they couldn’t get to soap and water. And restaurant operators needed extra germ-
fighting protection to reduce the risk of food contamination.

PURELL® Hand Sanitiser was a great success, not just because it was eff
ective at killing 99.99% of most common germs, but because it was convenient, gentle and a pleasure to use. The dispensers and bottles could be placed
anywhere, so hand hygiene was no longer restricted to the confines of a sink.
And people enjoyed using PURELL® Hand Sanitiser because it was refreshing and gentle.

Its popularity soon grew. People who used it at work also thought it would be
great to use when they were at home or on the go.
In 1997, PURELL® Hand Sanitiser was made available to consumers, forever changing the way the world stays well. It soon became America’s
number one hand sanitizer and a significant part of popular culture.

Today, PURELL® Hand Sanitiser remains one of the most recognised
brands in the world. It defines the hand sanitiser category and is the brand most preferred by doctors, professionals and consumers everywhere.
