New PROVON Hand & Body Butter Enhances Nursing Home Resident Skin Care

AKRON, OH--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  New PROVON® Hand & Body Butter is part of the refreshed line of PROVON products with relaxing fragrances for a more spa-like experience in nursing home resident care and formulations to help improve the quality of residents' skin. 

Launched by GOJO Industries, PROVON products were developed based on feedback from long-term care directors of nursing. They include hand, body and perineal washes; lotions and shampoos for elderly skin and hair care.

As aging skin becomes less moisturized and more brittle, it can be more susceptible to cracking, scaling and tears. Effective moisturization is vital for skin's outermost layers to function optimally.

PROVON Hand & Body Butter is formulated with a rich new moisturizer clinically proven to improve skin condition. Tests show improvements in skin hydration and elasticity in as little as 21 days. Specifically designed for nursing home resident care, the tropical-scented and texturally pleasing balm is formulated with a blend of beeswax, aloe and glycerin. Its silicone-free formula is also effective for caregivers who frequently wash their hands.

"Our Hand & Body Butter is specifically formulated to soothe and moisturize elderly skin. We put our product through objective tests on elderly skin in multiple nursing homes on a large enough sample to achieve statistically valid results. That is the only approach to truly understand a product's performance and potential impact. We are thrilled that we can provide a product that can help improve the skin condition and quality of life for our elders," said Tina Magazine, GOJO healthcare marketing director. "The whole PROVON line provides a healthy bathing and moisturizing regimen for nursing home resident care that refreshes the senses."

In addition to the homelike sensory experience for residents, caregivers benefit from color-coded and ergonomic PROVON product packaging. With its more functional design, the line is easier to understand, identify and use. The packaging is also more retail-like, which increases appeal when caring for nursing home residents.
