ARRAN diversifies with new range of anti-bacterial hand cleansing gels available to buy online


A Scottish homecare brand famed for its luxurious shower gels, body lotions and home fragrances has launched a new range of anti-bacterial hand cleansing gels to fill the gap in the supply chain during the COVID-19 outbreak. 

To assist in the crisis, ARRAN Sense of Scotland has produced 20,000 units of 50ml Hand Cleansing Gel at its Home Farm factory near Brodick Castle – providing another example of how companies are diversifying in the current climate to meet the needs of the population and temporary changes in lifestyle.

The new Hand Cleansing Gel has a light fragrance and contains naturally derived sugar beet alcohol and aloe vera leaf juice to soothe, hydrate and protect, making it perfect for anybody whose hands are bearing the brunt of extra washing to prevent illness.   

Hand Cleansing Gel from ARRAN Sense of Scotland is available to buy online now from priced at £4 each or £10 for three. Limited to three per customer.

Kevin Meechan, CEO of ARRAN Sense of Scotland, said: “As consumers look to protect themselves against the COVID-19 outbreak, shops all over the country are reporting a shortage of hand cleansers amid unprecedented demand. We took the decision to diversify our product range to help meet the needs of the public and immediately began creating this new product that is now available from our online store. 

“Our new cleansing gels are made to the high quality that our customers expect and is formulated with 60% naturally derived sugar beet alcohol and extracts of aloe vera to effectively cleanse and help protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier. To ensure we can help as many people as possible and avoid stockpiling, we’ve set a limit to three bottles per customer.”
