5 – Skin-friendly hand sanitisers: Holista Colltech and Skin Elements partner for new launch amid COVID-19 pandemic
In April, biotech firm Holista Colltech and skin care specialist Skin Elements – both of which are listed on the Australian stock exchange - announced a deal to launch a natural and alcohol-free hand sanitiser.
The Invisi Shield Natural hand sanitiser combined Skin Elements’ skin-sensitive anti-microbial formula with Path-Away, a plant-based alcohol-free active ingredient.
According to the company, it proved to be successful in killing of more than 170 viruses, bacteria and fungi.
Path-Away was developed by US-based Global Infection Control Consultants (GICC) and Holista holds its exclusive distribution rights in Australia.
