Zep Products Follow Rigorous Safety and Compliance Measures Set by FDA, Making Them Safe For Use

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Zep Inc, a leading innovator, producer and distributor of maintenance, cleaning and sanitation solutions for food & beverage, industrial & institutional, retail, and vehicle care customers, is committed to the safety and quality of their domestically produced hand sanitizers and hand soaps. Due to the FDA’s recent voluntary recall of approximately 70 brands of hand sanitizers that are using methanol, a toxic active ingredient, Zep is urging the public to be aware of the importance of using safe sanitizers and hand soaps during this public health emergency.

Zep, a leading brand in personal sanitizing and hand soap products, follows the guidance and criteria from the FDA for over-the-counter drug use. Zep’s products are developed through a controlled and regulated supply chain that manages the production of the sanitizers through FDA registered facilities, monitored by Zep’s chemical experts.

This year, Zep has seen an exponential lift in demand for the company’s disinfectant and hand sanitizing products and will be increasing supply through plant expansions in Emerson, GA and Desoto, TX. Zep has also introduced new disinfectants, hand sanitizers and hand soaps in response to COVID-19 and will release more product solutions in the coming months.

“Zep has a long-standing track record of delivering safe and effective products through heavily regulated sourcing, manufacturing and development of personal sanitizing agents,” said Bob Reynolds, Zep Senior Director of Technical Services. “Our commitment to providing those products is evident in our investments in manufacturing and our ability to partner with other organizations to find novel solutions to meet the needs of our customers during this global health emergency.”

Zep is a one-stop-shop option for efficacious cleaning and sanitizing solutions that prioritize the safety of the end user. The Zep Technical Services team is also available at to help customers answer any questions about their specific needs for keeping safe during the pandemic and for reopening.
