I wanted to find a way to help and show gratitude to our amazing NHS staff.
Thinking what I could do from my business, I made a batch of antimicrobial glycerin soap with added tea tree oil, cut into 100 small single use bars which I have donated to our local hospital.
I would like to extend this further and am looking for supporters to join me. You can help with this initiative by donating £1 (or more!) of soap through my online shop. We will aim to deliver soaps to our local hospitals and surgeries.
Some information on the soap and it’s properties:
Soap is naturally antimicrobial by its nature of action – it is cleansing, mechanically, by the physical action of washing and rinsing, thereby removing surface contamination, and it has surfactant properties that are chemically damaging to microbes.
ALL soaps exhibit these properties and are vital in terms of the increased hygiene requirements during the current outbreak.
The instant sanitising effect of soap can be augmented by the further addition of certain essential oils that stay on the skin, in part, even after rinsing to provide additional protection between washing.
The antimicrobial properties of Tea tree and Eucalyptus essential oil makes this soap a fantastic choice for key workers. When we wash our hands, it’s estimated that approximately 1% of the product stays on the skin.
This soap is ideal for the current demands of additional cleanliness.
Suitable for vegetarians.
