Swimming Australia partners with Elyptol

Swimming Australia partners with Elyptol
May 10, 2021

Swimming Australia has partnered with Elyptol, one of Australia’s leading hand sanitisers, to keep athletes, coaches, staff and spectators free from infection in and out of the pool.

Manufactured in Victoria, Australian-owned Elyptol sanitisers were utilised at both the 2021 Australian Age Swimming Championships and Australian Swimming Championships on the Gold Coast in early April.

Swimming Australia President Kieren Perkins notes “we’re really pleased to create a partnership with Elyptol, they are such a trusted Australian brand when it comes to hand sanitisation.

“We know the importance of maintaining healthy hands, it goes a long way to combat germs and stop the spread of bacteria, so we’re looking forward to utilising their products again in June at the Australian Swimming Trials.”

Elyptol Chief Executive Tim O’ Connor adds “Elyptol is not new to the market – or wasn’t conjured as a pivot during the pandemic. We’ve been doing this for several years.

“Our products are designed for high frequency professional and consumer use to control infection – without causing side effects like dermatitis. And they’ve met and surpassed every requirement of the top health testing bodies in the world. We’re not just antibacterial, we’re antimicrobial.

“If you are around water, like swimmers, you can reliably use Elyptol because of the science behind the infection control across our entire hand sanitiser range.”

Elyptol is uniquely enhanced by the healing properties of eucalyptus oil combined with pure ethanol derived from sugar and corn. It is safe, gentle on skin and minimises the likelihood of allergic reactions, contact dermatitis and dry cracked skin, while killing 99.9999% of bacteria, fungi and other common germs.

Elyptol hand sanitiser gels and wipes are widely used in Victorian hospitals and by NSW Paramedics.
