To help deal with the current shortage of disinfectants, Remedia, the first private distiller of beverages in Estonia, will begin production of hand sanitiser, SteriGel, that is based on the World Health Organisation’s recommended formula. Through distributor Amber Distribution Estonia, the product will be available for purchasing to major retail chains and governmental institutions where hand sanitiser supplies are low by the end of this week.

SteriGel is alcohol-based and will be available in four litre canister, which can be transferred into smaller containers. The hand sanitiser will be in a liquid form and will contain 70% alcohol. Although the disinfectant will contain high levels of alcohol, it cannot be used for human consumption due to the technological aids it contains.

Moi Vatsar, the manager of Amber Distribution Estonia, said: “We are working hard to ensure our hand sanitiser SteriGel is available to purchase as soon as possible to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus. We have a company policy of speed in everything that we do, so we are working towards a quick response to help increase the amount of hand sanitiser for those who really need it.”

“Together with our colleagues from Remedia distillery, we started the SteriGel project only a few days ago and we are now ready to start the production. We are very thankful to all authorities that were very responsive and helped to speed up the delivery of the product to consumers,” said Moi Vatsar.
