Because of certain Occ. Health issues with a component in our antibacterial hand soap our supplier has changed to an alternative. The supplier is well regarded in the food industry and the paperwork, HACCP certification and taint test reports all show the product to be ideal for us. However when we have changed over there is a mild disinfectant / phenol type smell which remains on the hands after rinsing and drying. The soap is sold as using Hydrogen Peroxide but the smell is definitely the TCP / Germoline type smell. As our product is quite sensitive to taint I am slightly worried about potential tainting when handled by staff.
I don't want to name the company / product (unless I am allowed to?) but would like to know if anyone else has experienced a similar issue recently and what your gut feeling is.
