The country’s oldest distillery has announced the launch of Consumer Protect 70 percent Ethyl Alcohol – anti-bacterial sanitizer, the latest addition to its essential product line since the launch of Consumer Protect 70 percent Ethyl Alcohol – anti-bacterial sanitizer at the start of the Covid-19 ECQ in late March of last year.
Si Antibacterial Liquid Hand Soap (Calamansi and Dalandan variations) is manufactured from a by-product of the country’s top Philippine artisan spirits, Manille Liqueur de Calamanis and Dalandan, as well as other natural ingredients.
Manille Liqueur’s production method promotes environmentally friendly manufacturing and upcycling projects, among other things. Using by-products from the manufacture of Manille Liqueur de Calamansi and Manille Liqueur de Dalandan, we developed a line of anti-bacterial hand soap to contribute to the preservation of the environment while also reducing the company’s environmental imprint. The rinds, seeds, juice, and mesocarp/endocarp of the Calamansi and Dalandan fruits are pulverized into a citrus “mud,” as we like to call it, and turned into a natural by-product. In order to make “SI ANTI-BACTERIAL LIQUID HAND SOAP” using natural Calamansi (Philippine Lemon) and Dalandan mud, the necessary active elements must first be extracted from the aforementioned mud (Philippine Orange).
Since the launch of Destileria Limtuaco & Co., Inc.’s Manille Liqueur de Calamansi in 2014, the brand has been a staunch supporter of the Philippines. Everything about Manille Liqueur, from the zesty freshness of Calamansi and Dalandan in a vodka base to the packaging concept with Filipino design elements such as floral embroidery and callado design that you would find in a barong Tagalog, is distinct. It is the best Filipino experience in a bottle, and it has a distinct taste, look, and feel that matches the brand’s identity of providing the best Filipino experience in a bottle.
Considering how much the company cares about locally grown vegetables and farming communities, the story behind each bottle makes it even more special. Local farmers benefit from the company’s help, which includes paying them the market price for Calamansi and Dalandan. By eliminating the middlemen, the farmers are able to keep 100 percent of the revenues generated by their business dealings with the enterprise.
“It’s a type of corporate social responsibility initiative for our organization.” “This significantly boosts the profit margins of every farmer,” explains Olivia Limpe-Aw.
Because of the presence of natural active elements in the Calamansi and Dalandan by-product, the skin is whiter and more resistant to infection, while the fruit pulp exfoliates dead skin, eliminates debris, lightens dark spots, and removes other impurities.
SI ANTI-BACTERIAL LIQUID HAND SOAP is available online through the Destileria Limtuaco & Co., Inc.’s e-store at www.liquorexpress.ph and Shopee.
