About us

A Quick introduction
The company behind Swash® is Arion. Arion was founded in 1994 by Dutchman Erik Joosten. As a young entrepreneur, Erik had one mission: remedy existing irritations in health care. In 1999 when Erik stumbled across disposable bathing cloths, developed to wash patients without water, he immediately sensed it: this is the solution for irritations of cross contamination, as well as inconveniences from traditional washing. Which is why, the same year, Arion introduced its washing concept – washing without water – in Europe.

Two decades later, Swash® bathing gloves and wipes are being used and integrated widely in care institutions throughout Europe. These moist bathing products have brought a positive and indispensable change for health care providers and have reinforced our goal, as a company, to do as much as possible to improve the lives of our customers by producing high-quality products. Our innovation and the technology that goes into Swash® is simple, but intended to make life easier, more efficient and more comfortable for the end user. To accomplish this, we call upon our years of knowledge and experience, but we also listen carefully to our customers’ needs, consulting frequently with professionals in the field.

“We strive to make the lives of current and future generations
easier, more efficient and comfortable.”
