We recently launched Sani Gel Calm, a hand sanitising gel that is fragranced with chamomile, eucalyptus, lavender and patchouli oils.
It was created by our very own in-house chemist, Sarah Deverell, who formulated it during lockdown from her own kitchen table!
Sani Gel Calm not only gives you a feeling of ‘zen’ when you use it, it also does good. For every bottle of Sani Gel Calm purchased, a fabric face mask is donated to those in need.
How do you go about creating a calming fragrance?
When Sarah knew that she wanted to create a calming fragrance she thought about some of the scents associated with a feeling of wellbeing. She selected a range of essential oils and set about creating a formulation that used Sani Gel original as a base.
Once lockdown eased there was a chance to test out some of the different formulations on family and friends. A winner emerged and this was a combination of…
Chamomile: A herb derived from the chamomile plant that has been used for centuries in many natural remedies but that has also been found to be effective in aiding relaxation and reducing anxiety.
Lavender: A classic scent used for relaxation and stress-relief.
Eucalyptus: Eucalyptus tress have many benefits and one of these is the promotion of relaxation. It is thought that the eucalyptol has anti-anxiety properties and it can help facilitate easy breathing.
Patchouli: This aromatic herb has a wonderful rich, earthy fragrance that promotes a feeling of wellbeing and aids relaxation.
And so, Sani Gel Calm was created. A medical-grade hand sanitiser (70% alcohol) but with the addition of fragrance derived from high-quality essential oils that promote a feeling of relaxation and wellbeing.
Helping those in need
For every purchase of Sani Gel Calm, IMG Defenceworks are partnering with our friends in South Africa to donate a fabric mask to communities in the most need.
In South Africa, there are severe shortages of resources to combat the spread of coronavirus. Whilst the COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us, it has left the most vulnerable and poorest communities in the world in a helpless and desperate situation. We thank all our customers for helping us provide some relief to some of those communities.
Sani Gel Calm is available as a 500ml bottle or as 100ml pocket-sized, spray bottles – See more information
