With constantly evolving safety measures in workplaces and public spaces, and heightened expectations from both customers and employees, businesses and facilities across all sectors have experienced unprecedented change as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
When it comes to what makes your facility users feel confident and comfortable, hand hygiene now has a permanent place in the spotlight.
Meeting conflicting demands
With increased expectations and more frequent use, come conflicting demands for businesses: reducing your costs, while improving your customer and employee experience. Hand hygiene solutions must be effective and cost-efficient, and for that, durability is essential.
By choosing durable dispensers that are designed and manufactured to withstand frequent use over a long period of time, you can help reduce and control costs across your facility. And because they’re designed to last longer, they don’t need to be replaced, reducing waste and supporting your business’ sustainability aims.
Bulk-fill can be a false economy
It’s not just your choice of dispensers and stands that will impact on your bottom line, but your choice of soap and hand sanitiser too. Buying in ‘bulk’ may seem like an economical idea, but in fact the amount of product dispensed per use from ‘bulk-fill’ solutions makes the opposite true.
Hygienically sealed refills have the advantage of keeping soap and sanitisers fresh and free from cross-contamination, unlike their bulk counterparts where one in four units have been shown to carry illness-causing bacteria*. Their concentrated dosing also means more applications per refill, offering better cost in use. And again, more uses per refill means less waste, helping businesses to make sustainable choices – important in a world where it’s no longer enough to just care about the environment, you need to show you care too.
At RCP, we help our partners to maximise the value of your budgets by lowering the lifetime cost of our hand hygiene, waste and cleaning products. As well as designing them to last longer, we ensure our products provide maximum efficiency to save you money every day.

Take sustainability seriously with battery-free hand hygiene
With sustainability remaining high on the agenda, RCP supports partners with innovative technology to help them achieve their business goals. Take the LumeCel™ AutoFoam dispenser, for example. Providing continuous hand hygiene, with a touch-free delivery design that reduces the spread of germs, it also offers a greener solution through being battery-free.
Powered by a rechargeable energy system that captures energy from any indoor or natural light source, the unique design eliminates the need to manufacture, use and dispose of alkaline batteries. The advanced system reduces your cost in use, while demonstrating you take sustainability seriously.
The no-touch dispensing design reduces the risk of contact with bacteria and its hygienically sealed refills avoid cross-contamination. The LumeCel™ dispenser is compatible with a wide choice of soap and hand sanitiser formulations, so its benefits can be enjoyed throughout a facility.
Choose visible hand hygiene that’s gentle and effective
Visible hand hygiene provision tells your facility users that you take their health and safety seriously.
With a range of soaps and sanitisers including alcohol-based solutions that kill 99.99% of germs, RCP is here to meet that demand and provide the reassurance people need while visiting or working in your facility.
While gentle yet efficacious solutions will give confidence in protection, your choice of dispenser also matters. A recent consumer survey* showed that 92% of people prefer touch-free hand hygiene dispensers, which reduce the risk of contact with bacteria.
RCP’s touch-free hand hygiene dispensers have been designed and manufactured to the highest standards, with smooth and quick delivery of a wide range of hand sanitiser refills, helping businesses to meet higher expectations.
