WE ARE VERY EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCH OF OUR NEW iZANDLA HAND SANITISER!
(If you are looking for more info for your business (lodge, office, shop, event, conference etc) or wedding then you can read more about corporate branding opportunities here)
Hand sanitiser, and our use of it, has changed forever! Gone are the days of sanitiser being for that hygiene obsessed friend of yours. The truth is, for most of us, hand sanitiser will more than likely become part of our weekly toiletry purchase from now on. As you add your toothpaste or deodorant in to your shopping basket (virtual or not), you will more than likely also be throwing in a bottle or two of hand sanitiser to the mix. Considering how much attention we put in to choosing our favourite perfume or shampoo should we not be doing the same with our sanitiser then?
Knowing we were not alone in experiencing the not so pleasant side of sanitiser: the overly chemical smelling liquid; the harsh effects on our skin; and rather unappealing packaging – we decided to create a product that we would love to use, and share it with you. Better yet, we have created not one, but three different variants.
The idea was to create something more than just another hygiene product, but rather a product to suit the time of day and places that we find ourselves in (be sure to read down below to find out more about each variant):
1. We have the ENERGIZING BLEND, perfect for use in the morning when we find ourselves needing a little kick of energy
2. Next we have the CALMING BLEND, perfect to use in the evening when you need a little touch of softness
3. Most exciting is our AFRICAN BLEND, for all the travellers out there (and anyone living with Mosquitos). This special blend has the addition of citronella, to keep those pesky insects at bay – best used with an ice-cold gin and tonic!
Housed in a robust 50ml glass bottle and beautifully packaged, iZandla is best purchased in a 3 bottle pack, with refills and 200ml bottles also available.
The bottles are perfectly sized to fit into your handbag, briefcase or that little nook in your car door.
Each 50ml bottles costs just R60 or buy all three and get 10% off. Trade discounts apply.
Contact us for bulk orders and to personalize with your own logo or wedding design.
WHAT DOES IZANDLA MEAN AND WHERE DOES THE NAME COME FROM?
The name iZandla means ‘hands’ in the isiZulu language. isiZulu is one of the 11 official languages in South Africa and is the most widely spoken home language out of them all. It also happens to be the language of my hometown, Durban.
So the initial idea for the name for a hand sanitiser I guess now comes as no surprise. But there is so much more to it than what meets the eye.
The connotation of hands means handmade, which infers ‘made with love’.
It also often depicts handcrafted, giving the feeling of something ‘made with care’.
Both of these apply to our products.
And in isiZulu there is the idiom: ‘izandla ziya gezana’ meaning in the literal sense of the words, ‘one hand washes the other’. The meaning however runs deeper, as in most things in the Zulu culture. iZandla ziya gezana actually means ‘we help each other’ and for me this is the essence of what we call ubuntu here, in Africa.
Do you have a friend who has it all? The 3-pack iZandla set is the perfect gift.
Are you looking for the perfect something to gift your friend ready to hit the open road as soon as borders open? Then look no further than the African Blend with added citronella to keep the mozzies at bay!

- This proudly African formula uses organically grown and sustainably harvested ingredients.
- This indigenous blend hand sanitiser contains some of nature’s most potent antiseptic and anti-bacterial natural oils.
