But most consumers don’t put much thought into the products they use and end up covering their hands, surfaces and cell phones with foul smelling products that can dry out their skin. The founders of Freshington, however, have thought a great deal about these products, and are offering an alternative.
“We wanted to show people that they do have a choice, and you need to know what’s going on your skin,” says Jenna Fisher, the company’s sales and marketing coordinator.
The Alberta-based business is offering high-quality, Canada-made sanitizers that are gentle on the skin, but tough on germs. The sprays and wipes can help people be confident in their safety as they start getting back to what they loved doing pre-pandemic.
Two chemicals — fresh in Canada’s market — are at the core of Freshington’s lines: Bacoban and Inzo-Fillwell. Inzo-Fillwell offers a hypoallergenic way for people to disinfect their hands, or the objects they use throughout their day. The company offers a line of Inzo-Fillwell hand sanitizing sprays, gels, and even single-use packets, which are perfect for people seeking added protection as they go shopping, traveling, to the gym and to work.
Competitors use technical-grade alcohol in their sprays and wipes. This lower quality alcohol can dry out and harm the sensitive skin on the hands. Freshington, however, makes use of medical-grade alcohol in a higher concentration than most other products, which tend to sit at the bare minimum of 60 per cent.
Originally developed in Germany, Bacoban is a disinfectant that kills 99% of harmful microbes including viruses, bacteria and fungi, while also creating a hygienic surface that prevents the growth of mold. Bacoban resolves the hygiene gap by offering protection against pathogens. For protection in the home, Bacoban offers a line of disinfecting sprays for your home, business and vehicle along with wipes for protection on the go. Bacoban is suitable for use not only on electronics, but is also approved for food preparation surfaces, has no VOCs and will not leave a harsh chemical scent.
The compound is so effective, it not only finds regular use among airline companies as they disinfect surfaces in their planes, but also in hospitals, laboratories and other medical facilities.
The company currently has two producers: Alberta-based Guardian Chemical Inc., and B.C.-based Voran Group Ventures Ltd. According to Fisher, these Canadian companies are reliable, and use only the highest quality ingredients in all their products.
“We wanted a product we could trust to clean and disinfect,” she says, “without effecting the health of our families with harmful vapours or toxic chemicals.”
