This is the fifth part of a five-part article on industrial soaps.

Although cost is always a piece of the decision-making puzzle, having to pay a higher price is typically is not an issue when it comes to industrial soap.

“In a manufacturing plant, industrial soap is one item that they are the most passionate about. They will actually spend more money on that, because it’s a hot-button (product),” says Sinn. “If guys can’t get their hands clean, they’re not happy.”

In addition to cleanliness, correct use of industrial soap will create a safer work environment in heavy-manufacturing plants. 
“If they are working with heavy equipment, they don’t want their hands to be slippery, because, if they are slippery, they can drop something or a piece of equipment could fall,” says Benson.

As BSCs look to grow or solidify their presence in the industrial sector, they will need to be able to provide the right soap for the market. An industrial soap that’s tough on dirt, but gentle on hands is just what customers need.
