With the acquisition of Stoko Professional Skin Care by Deb Group in 2015, two innovative companies were able to utilize unique formulations, dispenser and packaging expertise to develop KrestoGT.  The goal was to create a product that was highly effective at cleaning heavy duty substances from hands, yet price conscious, for the automotive and automotive aftermarket industries.

Problem it solves: Kerosene, gasoline and acetates all serve a purpose, but they shouldn’t be used to clean your hands. Yet these substances were being used to clean grease, oil, paint and ground-in dirt from their hands. KrestoGT was formulated to made to cut through grease and grime, yet its soft scrubbers protect hands from micro-abrasions, unlike competitor products that use pumice.
