Innovation in a time of crisis
Melbourne-based skincare company, Synergie Skin, has launched its own hospital grade Sanitiser Spray to meet the high demands of hand and surface sprays, and we couldn't be more excited!
The antimicrobial disinfecting spray is geared to protect skin and provide a barrier against microbes, including Coronavirus, which can be potentially harmful.
Encompassing Synergie’s unique ‘Clean Science’ philosophy, the formulation contains botanically derived alcohol and is free from any questionable ingredients including isopropyl alcohol. At 70% grain derived alcohol, Sanitiser Spray provides maximum hospital grade antimicrobial protection for hands and surfaces.
The skin-friendly formula also includes two of our favourite hydrating, humectant key ingredients: glycerine to prevent moisture loss to the hands and aloe vera leaf juice to address skin irritation, while conveniently doubles as an effective surface sanitising spray.
“As a chemist and immunology graduate, I am fortunate to have the knowledge and tools to take immediate action in this new climate. I am so proud to say that with Synergie’s vertically integrated structure and nimble manufacturing ability, I have been able to formulate a clean science Sanitiser Spray,” says Terri Vinson, Founder of Synergie Skin.
“Alcohol-based sanitisers must be at least 60% alcohol to be effective. Disinfectants and sanitisers on the market use isopropyl alcohol, which is twice as toxic and more absorbable in the bloodstream than ethanol. I have developed a safer, low irritant yet highly effective alternative using botanical ethanol instead. Synergie Skin's Sanitiser Spray is 70% grain derived alcohol and will be effective within one minute of contact. Sanitisers at 70% alcohol or more are considered hospital grade”
The best part? With the health of the community in mind, Synergie Skin is donating 5% of Sanitiser Spray proceeds to the RBWH Foundation Coronavirus Action Fund, an Australian organisation which is leading clinical trials in an effort to prevent, detect, and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Synergie Sanitiser Spray is available now at www.synergieskin.com with an RRP: $15 for 120ml.
