For over 70 years, the Deb Group has been establishing skin care regimes for all types of workplace and public environments, spanning industrial, commercial, healthcare and food sectors. Its products are sold in over 100 countries, with an estimated 40 million people using the products every day.

Deb is also licenced under GECA's Personal Care Products standard, making its soaps and handwashes environmentally-preferable and healthy choices. The company is committed to investing in good environmental management and striving to improve its environmental performance. This commitment can be found throughout all levels of Deb's product manufacture and management, from the chemistry of its products to its management systems within the company.

Notably, Deb pioneered the use of foaming soaps as an alternative to lotion soaps. Foam soaps have many environmental benefits, including a lower chemical usage per hand wash, and reduced water consumption because there is no need to lather the soap.
