We are Alex and Sophie, the founders of KLEN Hygiene.
We are a married couple who tied the knot in 2019, both born, raised and still living in Birmingham, UK. We are proud to say our products are manufactured and shipped right here in our hometown.
It is no secret to anyone, that 2020 has been quite the year so far. When the Coronavirus Pandemic hit the UK, we could see that the big brands could no longer provide a product, that was not only essential, but potentially life saving. We then noticed that there were people exploiting this, and profiteering from the pandemic; we felt it was our duty to find a way to remedy this and so, KLEN was born.
However, as those of you who know about us will be aware, KLEN is not a hand sanitizer as we have known them before.
People's number one complaint about hand sanitizer was that frequent use caused dry, sore, and cracked skin; meaning that a bottle of hand sanitizer would be used in the correct way, but then quickly cast aside into the abyss of a handbag or a junk drawer. We found a way to incorporate moisturising properties into our sanitizing formula to make sure this doesn't happen. What good is a hand sanitizer if it isn't being used?
Secondly, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, a huge amount of rules were being forced upon us. "Stay at home", "wash your hands", "queue for hours to get your essentials", "stay two metres apart" and so on... It's human nature to want to rebel. So what did we do? We FRAGRANCED our hand sanitizers. Everyone loves a good smell, it makes us happy, it relaxes us, but not only that, it would make us WANT to use hand sanitizer.
We incorporated 65% alcohol in our hand sanitizers to ensure they are effective at killing 99.9% of germs, viruses and bacteria. No animals are involved in the making or testing of our products and all of our ingredients are vegan friendly.
We love hearing from our customers, you're able to contact us via this link, or we'd love to see your photos of KLEN on our Instagram page.
