Raising the Bar on What Soap Can Do

Washing hands with soap is a proven way to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases, especially among children. In fact, with regular handwashing, the mortality of preventable diseases, such as diarrhea and pneumonia, can be reduced by fifty percent. Winner of a 2015 Edison Award, Dow’s POLYOX™ water-soluble polymers help form the first line of defense, creating germ protection soaps that last longer and provide better value, yet still feel great on skin. Used around the world, these soaps have the ability to positively impact health and hygiene in a significant way.
