Why Corbin Rd. is now making hand sanitiser
In short, friends and family, I have a sister and two nieces who are nurses and on the front line right now. I have nephews and cousins in the agricultural industry, and I have friends in the retail industry, all of which are essential services.
Two weeks before the official lockdown, I was asked too many times “where I can buy hand sanitiser?” After a little investigating, I discovered that the raw materials supply of alcohol was becoming scarce and tripling in price. This is why I took action.
The Corbin Rd, Hand Sanitiser formula includes the necessary 70% Alcohol to protect from microbes, and a bundle of other natural ingredients to help support the skin's hydration and smell a little less offensive, as this is our new perfume at the moment right? Please see full ingredients list below.
When I receive feedback like this, I know diverting to this new direction was the right decision.
"I have children who are immune-compromised and my husband is an essential worker so finding your hand sanitiser has really been a blessing how we both have one in our cars and 3 extras at home."
"Hi I would like to say thank you, I ordered 4 bottles of hand sanitiser last night and they arrived first thing this morning which is amazing service.. I ordered 4 as I have been unable to access hand sanitiser and I work in the hospital so wanted to purchase 4 to share with others I thought there might have been a purchase limit."
This scarcity situation is still in play even though tonnes of sanitiser is being manufactured daily. I can only guess it’s going directly to the most essential services like hospitals before it trickles down. In the last two weeks, we’ve filled this scarcity gap in our small way for front line workers' personal use, the agriculture sector, the retail sector and the rest of us going to the supermarket.
Will we continue to sell sanitiser?
Yes, the new addition to the family is here to stay, and soon it will be accompanied by a Hand & Nail Repair Barrier Lotion. Finally, the aluminium bottles have arrived. The final packaging we are waiting to arrive is the 500ml refillable options, but no one knows when that might be. I'll keep you posted!
