NDC’s Farah hand sanitizer gets approval

Farah hand sanitizer, manufactured by National Detergent Company (NDC), the maker of the detergent brand Bahar, has been approved by Oman’s Ministry of Health. 
 
Farah hand sanitizer was re-formulated and upgraded in March 2020 as part of NDC’s strategy to strengthen its hygiene products portfolio to combat the Covid-19 pandemic in Oman, the company said in a statement.
 
“Today, a much sought-after product among customers in the Sultanate, Farah hand sanitizer contains 70% ethyl alcohol and can kill 99.99% of harmful germs,” it added. The hand sanitizer is ideal for corporates, institutions, hospitals, individuals, families and frontline healthcare workers, it added. 
 
NDC said it launched Farah hand sanitizer considering the fact that most people didn’t have access to good quality hand sanitizers during the critical period. The company decided to step in and make the best quality Farah hand sanitizer accessible to citizens and residents of Oman at an affordable price. The company, it said, has the capacity to make two million bottles of hand sanitizers a month.
 
Anish Kumar, Head of Marketing at NDC, said: "We have received a great response from customers for Farah hand sanitizer which is a great value product that offers advanced germ-killing power in a formulation that is gentle and soothing on the skin. With affordable pricing and convenient packaging, Farah hand sanitizer ensures effective hand sanitization by way of quick and persistent action. Approved by Oman’s Ministry of Health, the sanitizer adheres to the local and global health standards. We urge customers to buy this approved hygiene product from a trusted manufacturer like NDC.”
 
“Farah hand sanitizer is a product made according to highest quality standards, and ensures well above 70% of ethyl alcohol (standard requirement is 60% ethyl alcohol). Since we use superior quality of ethyl alcohol it makes the product very safe. The moisturising effect in the formulation makes sure that hands don’t turn dry after use,” he added.
 
Farah hand sanitizer is available in 270ml pack in local stores including Lulu Hypermarket, Carrefour, The Sultan Center and pharmacies like Muscat Pharmacy. NDC has also supplied the product to corporate clients like Bank Muscat and Kalhat Cleaning among others. Farah hand sanitizer is also available in 500 ml,  5 litres and 20 litres packaging for the industrial and institutional segment.
 
NDC’s other wellness and hygiene products in the laundry, personal and home care segments include Bahar detergent, Bahar Antiseptic, Bahar Clean, D'zire antibacterial soap and Farah anti-bacterial hand wash liquid.—TradeArabia News Service
