If you don’t know the name Ineos – well, you should.
The global chemical company are not only responsible for keeping 95 per cent of the UKs drinking water safe through its chlorine production, but you’ll find them across the sporting world.
For fans of Formula 1, you may have spotted the brand on the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team seven times World Championship car and styled out by none other than Lewis Hamilton. They also dip their toe into the world of football as a sponsor for Tottenham Hotspur FC, as well as cycling with the INEOS Grenadiers and sailing for the not-so subtle INEOS TEAM UK. If you haven’t already, you’ll soon start to notice the brand everywhere.
Ineos are the largest producer of high-purity synthetic ethanol which might not mean much to the average Joe and Joanna, but it means they were in the perfect position to help when the sanitiser shortage occurred in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. The brand were responsible for distributing millions of bottles of the bacteria-killing formulations to the NHS, medical institutions and health care workers who needed it most.
Oh, and they did it all for free.
While commercial properties have hosted a dispenser of some description for the best part of the last year, there hasn’t been anything attractive enough to keep in our homes. Nobody wants a clunky hand-san eye-sore greeting them at their own front door, or something that will end up secreting all over the hallway.
Restrictions may have eased and life is starting to resemble BC times, but for many of us masks and sanitiser are here to stay. With this in mind, the brand is offering an at-home solution with a stylish twist.
To ensure housebound hygiene practices tie in seamlessly with your décor, Ineos has meticulously designed an home dispenser that’s as sleek as it is sophisticated. Take the stress out of hosting by introducing one of these devices into your hallway to give you peace of mind.
Made from aluminium, its available in a fetching selection of hues – red, silver, black or cream to coincide with any colour scheme. There’s a curved frame to cup your hand while it simultaneously triggers the sensor and thus encourages the liquid to flow. You can have the product on a table, affixed to a wall or freestanding. It’s powered by a rechargeable battery and there’s an indicator when the battery or your sanitiser supply is low. It really is very simple to use and lives up to the likes of Dyson transforming once tedious purchases into something exciting, high-tech and luxe.
The sanitiser solution has 75 per cent pharmaceutical grade alcohol and kills 99.9 per cent of viruses and bacterial. Sanitiser subscription services are en route too to simplify the process of restocking once your supplies run low. Each cartridge lasts around two or three months and the replacements have an eco-conscious twist too, made from recyclable plastic and cost just £11.
