Covid-19 is wreaking havoc among the global community since the dawn of 2020 in a magnanimous scale, transforming the way the public carry on with their lives. As the Novel Corina virus pandemic unfolded, World Health Organization (WHO), among other guidelines recommended that frequent use of hand sanitizers consisting 75% concentrated Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) prevents public from spreading the virus. Based on WHO guidelines, Hicare Pharmaceuticals Private Limited, one of the nation’s leading Health Care and Beauty Product Companies has introduced a portfolio of locally manufactured quality certified hand sanitizers to the Sri Lankan market.
Even though numerous sanitizer products have flooded the local market, their degree of quality and effectiveness towards the intended purpose is highly questionable. Hence, Amitha Perera the Chief food and drug inspector of the National Medicines Regulatory Authority (NMRA) has stated that it is always in publics best interest to use sanitizer products which are registered with NMRA, manufactured under WHO product composition guidelines and consisting acceptable quality standards.
Tharanga Lanka Weerawardhana, the Managing Director of Hicare Pharmaceuticals Private Limited assures that Hicare Hand Sanitizer portfolio is manufactured with compliance to WHO guidelines and is registered under NMRA. Moreover, Hicare sanitizers are manufactured by using cutting edge manufacturing technology, in modernized facilities and under the supervision of accredited laboratories that has verified 99.99% germ killing capability of Hicare sanitizer products.
Hicare hand sanitizers are available in both gel and liquid forms to suit varying needs of the customers, while the product range consist of 50ml, 100ml and 200ml primarily aimed at personal consumption, where 500ml, 1L, 2L and 5L products are intended for industrial usage.
Acknowledging the Social Responsibility aspect of business during such trying times for the island nation, Hicare Pharmaceutical Private Limited has donated a Sanitizer Product consignment to The Office of Health Services in Western Province in order to carryout their sanitization efforts.
