[PRNewswire] Connell and Dow "Team Up to Clean Up" With Hand Sanitizer
Produced Locally in Myanmar

(SAN FRANCISCO and YANGON, Myanmar, Sept. 2, 2020 PRNewswire=연합뉴스) Two international chemical giants recently used their expertise and local connections to provide a supply of premium hand sanitizer to the people of Myanmar during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Connell and Dow made the presentation of two million milliliters of FDA-approved sanitizer on July 23, 2020, to Minister of Health and Sport Dr. Myint Htwe. The Department of Public Health will distribute the sanitizer, packaged in 1,000-milliliter bottles, to four government hospitals.

Production of the high-quality hand sanitizer was a collaborative effort. "We teamed up to clean up as a local response to the worldwide pandemic," said Connell Country Manager Lars Larsen.

Connell, a marketer and distributor of specialty chemicals and ingredients in the Asia-Pacific region, donated the main ingredient, 98% ethanol, along with additives of hydrolyzed jojoba ester and moisturizer. Dow, a global materials science company, contributed ACULYN™ 22, a Dow product that helped to give the sanitizer a pleasant, non-tacky feel. The sanitizer was produced and bottled in Yangon.

Local production of the sanitizer for donation to the government has now sparked plans to offer the new sanitizer in Myanmar as a commercial product.

"This is a good, appealing, responsible product that stacks up to anything offered on the world market," Larsen said.

Accordingly, the next step will be to go from producing institutional-sized bottles to small samples that can be distributed as part of a local marketing effort. "We were happy to team up with Dow on our donation effort," Larsen added. "Now we look forward to working to provide the people of Myanmar with a great product going forward."
