Consumer centric and environmental health service company in Nigeria, Environmental Science Hygiene (ESH) LTD has introduced an all-natural foaming sanitizer even as it commissioned a new state-of-the-art factory in Ikeja, Lagos to support local small businesses.

According to the company, the factory was built with the intent to support small and medium businesses in the country by giving them access to the factory to manufacture their products and package their goods for sale.
First of its kind, the premium hand sanitizer which is naturally sourced and distilled from the sap of the Palm tree through a sustainable process, is produced, manufactured, and distributed in Nigeria.

Commenting on the launch during the commissioning of the factory which held on 15th February 2022, Sola Adebowale, Managing Director, ESH LTD Nigeria who disclosed that the launch of the PalmTree Hygiene foaming hand sanitizer was a three-year research journey, also shared that the sole purpose of the premium product is to cater to individuals as well as institutions that crave sanitizing products that cater to the healthcare needs of families, employees, or patients.

She said: “For three years we embarked on thorough research to bring to the public a highly dependable hand sanitizer, and the result is PalmTree® Hygiene foaming hand sanitizer. At the onset of covid-19, we saw the need for an all-natural sanitizer that is effective in protecting humans while also being environmentally sustainable; a product that will be instrumental in assisting health care institutions in preventing the spread of infectious viruses. It is also exciting to do this whilst also creating opportunities for SMEs to scale their business. We have built a world-class factory that small and medium scale businesses can leverage to produce and package their products.”

In addition, Adebowale revealed that the launch of PalmTree® Hygiene foaming hand sanitizer will soon be followed by the development and manufacturing of hygiene products such as hand and soft face sanitizers, foaming hand soaps, sprays, surface and floor wipes, and disinfectants amongst others.

The uniqueness of the Palm Tree Hygiene hand sanitizer comes from the alcohol extraction process which is sourced naturally and distilled from the sap of the Palm tree, without any damage to the tree and no harmful impact on the environment. The product also moisturizes and gives off a coconut scent, helping to decongest the nasal pathways. The premium sanitizer which has been proven to be effective in combating zoonotic germs, like viruses, parasites, and fungi is firstly certified in the UK under European standards EN1276 and by NAFDAC in Nigeria.

Validating the years of research put into the creation of the sanitizer, Sam Awolesi, Chief Executive Officer, ESH LTD Nigeria, shared: “When we started this experiment, we were equipped with industry knowledge and insights and we found that 80% of customers, whether individuals or organizations prefer foaming as opposed to gel or liquid sanitizers. It is with this learning from the health industry coupled with years of internal expertise that we’re pleased to introduce this innovative product sourced from local palm trees, fresh from nature’s palm to yours.”

The Environmental Science Hygiene (ESH) Ltd, Nigeria is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Environmental Science group (ESG) in the United Kingdom with over 24 years of experience in environmental hygiene. The company is involved in safety, workplace activity safety protection (WASP) sheets, identifying chemical hazards, and providing on-site COSHH monitoring, LEV testing, and chemical risk assessment services.
