Hero Wipes decon wiper product wins EWG Verified status for avoiding ‘ingredients of concern’

CHINO, CA, March 6, 2018-

Hero Wipes®, the most effective on-site decontamination wipe for firefighters, has announced today that it is now EWG VERIFIED™ by the Environmental Working Group.  EWG VERIFIED™ means that Hero Wipes avoids EWG's ingredients of concern, is committed to full transparency and operates under good manufacturing practices (cGMP).

Effectiveness and safety are the hallmarks of a product that is designed to remove toxic, cancer-causing carcinogens from the skin of firefighters before they leave the scene of a fire as part of their safety regimen. Hero Wipes was tested and found to effectively remove 83 percent of Benzopyrene, commonly found in soot, from a simulated skin in just one swipe across the surface. Now, the additional step to become EWG VERIFIED™ underscores Hero Wipes' continued commitment to the rigorous criteria required to join this exceptional safety program.
