A few weeks ago, Five Dot Botanics embarked on a mission to produce a free hand sanitiser that we could give away to those needing it most in our community.
As a small founder led business we have limited funds, however we wanted to show that it is possible to help and that small actions can make a big difference.
We initially didn’t think we could launch this project due to ingredients being in short supply. However, we are delighted to share that we secured the alcohol needed from Greensand Ridge Distillery, an artisan distillery in Ken (that have been using the alcohol-based by-products from their distillation process to make sanitiser). The hand sanitiser followers the WHO formulation.
Five Dot Botanics has donated hand sanitiser to St Christopher's Hospice in South East London, who provide 24/7 palliative care to patients and to the Voluntary Services in Lewisham, South London.
We have no plans to sell the hand sanitiser, however for a limited period we will be giving the Five Dot Botanics Hand Sanitiser to our customers for free with every order (one per order, while stocks last). Details on how to redeem this offer will be in our May newsletter, sign up to hear updates.
