George Steuarts’ Sterill unveils advanced hand sanitizer gel with new formula for the retail market

George Steuarts’ Sterill, a renowned and trusted brand in industrial and commercial sanitization and cleaning, recently introduced an Advanced Hand Sanitizer Gel to the retail
market in response to public demand for a high-quality hand sanitizer in the fight against COVID-19.


The advanced gel form sanitizer is gentle on the hands, with the addition of olive extracts to keep hands moisturized as well. It is also proven to kill 99.99% of harmful germs.

According to the WHO Guidelines on Hand Hygiene in Healthcare, COVID-19 is an acute respiratory disease that is transmitted through direct contact with contaminated surfaces. However, the virus is easily inactivated by chemical
disinfectants.

Therefore, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the use of an
alcohol-based hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol, while the WHO mandates 70% alcohol to wipe down surfaces where the use of bleach is not suitable.

In line with all stringent international guidelines, Sterill sanitizer products contain 70% alcohol, and the manufacturing facility has been registered with
the National Medicines Regulatory Authority to ensure safety and compliance.

Sterill Advanced Hand Sanitizer Gel will be made available at pharmacies, A-grade grocery shops and supermarkets island-wide and comes in sizes of 50/100 and 300ml. The sanitizer range also includes 5- liter bulk industrial cans of Alcoholic Hand Rub, Sanitizing Spray and Surface Sanitizer, which have been in the market for over 8 years.

Sterill covers a range of applications including personal sanitization, disinfectant booths, and sanitizing chambers and surfaces such as counter tops, tabletops and chairs.

This unprecedented COVID-19 global pandemic has brought many challenges, including meeting much- needed demand for products to assist with cleaning and sanitizing.

Sterill stands proud to be a part of the effort in meeting these needs with the launch of sanitizing products to complement its existing line of cleaning products that cater to retail consumers.

Sterill currently covers an extensive range of automotive, professional, home and personal cleaning products and the development of these products has always supported the company in building trustworthiness in the market.

Sterill is manufactured in a state-of-the-art factory, with a focus on quality and safety from the factory floor to final user. Combined with personnel with extensive laboratory and production experience, the company provides its clients with world-class cleaning solutions through Sterill.
