enMotion with Lotion towels have been designed with softness in mind to help protect hands from the signs of dryness, cracking and scaling that accompany frequent hand washing – a common issue among healthcare industry employees. Release of the lotion applied to the towels is enhanced when in contact with water, typically after hand washing.
With a keen understanding of the industries it serves, Georgia-Pacific Professional provides innovative products that improve the washroom experience. Within the healthcare market, when the enMotion with Lotion towels are paired with the enMotion touchless dispensing system it can help improve hygiene by reducing the spread of infection caused by cross-contamination.
According to recent studies, approximately 25 percent of nurses report signs or symptoms of dermatitis regarding their hands. In addition, 85 percent of them also report a history of experiencing skin problems. enMotion with Lotion was developed with these concerns in mind.
“Georgia-Pacific Professional recognized the skin problems healthcare employees endure from frequent hand washing, and it used this feedback to develop solutions to address this common issue,” said Craig Yardley, vice president and general manager - towel category. “We are hopeful that enMotion with Lotion towels will be a key pillar as we work to promote better hand hygiene compliance and improve the experience of healthcare professionals.”
The enMotion with Lotion towel is part of Georgia-Pacific Professional’s goal to create products that are cost effective and increase both hygiene and environmental awareness among consumers.
As part of this effort, together the enMotion with Lotion towels and enMotion automated touchless wall-mount dispensers comply with Georgia-Pacific Professional’s Green by Design™ program. This unique program provides source reduction benefits that distinguish the enMotion brand.
To ensure a better customer experience and convenient transition to this new product, the enMotion with Lotion roll towels were designed to fit in the enMotion automated touchless wall-mount dispensers and the enMotion Impulse 10 dispensers. The towel dispenser is available for sublease from authorized distributors. Please visit our corporate Web site for more information on this product and other enMotion products.
