AKRON, OH--(Marketwire - August 24, 2010) -  With inspiration from directors of nursing, GOJO Industries has launched its refreshed line of PROVON® products for residents of long-term care facilities. The PROVON line includes perineal care products for the elderly and now offers convenient color-coded packaging that answers directors of nursing desire for products that can be more quickly understood and identified.

Other enhancements include improved package functionality that allows for easy one-hand use and shows remaining product volume.

Directors of nursing also inspired development of the PROVON Skin Care Toolkit with a DVD for easy and effective staff training and education, available at
