We are pleased to announce a new COVID-19 Coronavirus category (https://www.intelligentvending.co.uk/covid-19-coronavirus/) has been launched on the Intelligent Wholesale website. This is being reviewed and updated regularly to ensure prices and offers are as up-to-date as possible. As with all COVID-19 related products we have supplied so far (the range is extensive and very rarely publicised!), we know that demand is unprecedented. You can therefore rest assured we are reviewing and updating all products added to this new section daily to ensure prices and offers are current and effective.
Our key area of focus via our eCommerce channel so far has been alcohol sanitiser. In our own opinion, Unicorn Hygienics were well ahead of the game with this and one of the first truly UK producers to predict the demand that was coming. While standard alcohol hand sanitiser retail suppliers still had their usual UK stock allocation available for day to day (non-coronavirus) business usage requirements, Unicorn capitalised on their extensive knowledge and experience from previous respiratory viruses in the marketplace. They quickly positioned themselves as a leader in the field, with one of the best hand sanitizing products available for consumers in the UK & Ireland markets.
The product is Pursan, and this already had a registered trademark going back to 2010. From our own experience with hand sanitisers, we strongly believe that their formula cannot be faulted. It had already been tried and tested in the market many years ago and fine-tuned to consumer needs.
Utmost respect must go out to Roger Pannell from the Unicorn group on this. He has always had a great eye for business and he never once took advantage of this crises for personal reward. His aim at every stage was to provide his trusted and loyal distributor partners with a truly world leading product, and a market edge that would help to keep their businesses going, whilst also saving people in the UK. Their Pursan product is truly exceptional and their product has remained at competitive pricing throughout the market fluctuations.
Our own staff at Intelligent Vending and Intelligent Wholesale, plus extended staff families have been using this product since day one of the coronavirus pandemic (and in some cases significantly high and repeated use throughout each day!) without any damage to our hands at all thanks to the added moisturiser and formulation of the product.
We have now extended our COVID-19 range to include the new Sterizen alcohol hand sanisiter & sanitising surface cleansing solution. This has been brought to us via Borg & Overstrom who are a leader in the high-end point of use water coolers and accessories category worldwide. The focus for their new Sterizen solutions is consistent with that of Unicorn Hygienic’s, but their retail offering is focused on smaller, handy, pocket size products that can be carried around by staff.
Their Sterizen 80% alcohol formula hand sanitiser is based on WHO (World Health Organisation) recommendations. It is again a liquid and not a gel, and there is no unpleasant residue left of the hands. It is also great for repeated use and comes in both 150ml and 250ml atomiser spray bottles which are recyclable. Full SDS information and marketing information can be found on our website under the COVID-19 Coronavirus section, and both small cases, and bulk pallet offerings are available to clients with clear timelines outlined online to ensure transparency.
The little sister to the Sterizen alcohol hand sanitiser range is the Borg & Overstrom sanitiser surface solution. This is supplied in a lockable 150ml spray which is also pocket size. This product is NOT for hand use, but it is perfect for surface sanitizing of door handles, light switches, vehicle interiors, control panels, touch screens, shopping trolley handles and so much more. The Sterizen sanitising solution is suitable for anywhere that people touch regularly. Due to the ingredient formulation it is cheaper to produce than high alcohol content hand sanitiser, so it is ideal for any areas that people regularly touch and keeps costs as low as possible in relation to company staff safety. All SDS information is available for both Pursan and Sterizen products online, as well as other important marketing information.
A range of other products will also be listed shortly, but we are posting based on demand in terms of priority. Hand sanitisers are a huge, in demand product in these uncertain times, so it’s only fair they received the first introduction to our new COVID-19 Coronavirus section.
A range of other PPE items for the NHS and government departments are also available via our specialist advisers and personal protective equipment suppliers, so please ask if you have any particular sourcing requirements. For volume buyers such as government departments, healthcare, pharmacies & supermarkets, rest assured our product range is extensive (but all may not be listed online) and it continues to grow for this new category.
Please let us know if you require high volumes of medical 3-ply face masks, surgical 3-ply face masks, Face Fit FFP2 KN95 face masks, Face Fit FFP3 KN99 face masks or surgical gowns. We can supply millions of units at competitive prices with very short lead times direct from specialist manufacturers.
Our global network of trusted and certified factories can produce high quality PPE (personal protective equipment) items with very fast lead times. We also have dedicated cargo planes and logistics available to ensure quality inspections throughout production, speedy customs checks, and rapid delivery to our clients wherever they are located around the world.
It is great to see British businesses prosper in hard times and the innovation of UK entrepreneurs flourish. Keep updated of the many products arriving in our COVID-19 Coronavirus portfolio shortly; hand sanitiser has been a life saver and extremely popular with all of our customers with some incredible reviews from clients.
Keep safe everyone and watch this space….

Our high content 70% alcohol hand sanitizer with moisturiser is still available. We’ve taken significant orders over the weekend and it’s been a very busy day, but additional production has been made available at the factory due to extremely high demand and to keep lead times as low as possible for clients.
PURSAN 500ml Alcohol Hand Cleanser 70 Percent Alcohol Label
Orders continue to be processed on a first come, first serve basis and we will confirm lead times for each order placed asap following receipt. Please bear with us on this as we are working as quickly as possible.
I’m also pleased to confirm that we will soon be supplying bulk 5 litre container versions and smaller hand-held 100ml high alcohol hand gel sanitizer bottles. Watch this space!…
P.S. All soap dispensers have now also been reduced online on our website too, for those who don’t wish to buy the hand alcohol sanitizer in bulk and prefer to provide better hand washing facilities to staff. These can be ordered in lower single unit volumes.
P.P.S. We have also received significant enquiries from our partners in Europe and are happy to quote for shipping via email on an enquiry by enquiry basis.

Businesses and schools across England last year were approached with the idea of free vending sanitary products as the impact of period poverty was brought to light. What a smart vending idea! The incentive was met with mixed results, but the topic has remained hot and is still gathering momentum. This easily wall mounted Period Poverty duo vending starter kit would be an ideal place to start for companies or institutions wanting to introduce the scheme.

Intelligent Vending followers will know that our company has always had an interest in promoting sexual health, and we’ve tried to make a contribution where we can across the world. It’s great therefore to hear from Christopher Wells regarding the work he’s undertaken in Southern Ethiopia. Chris has kindly provided a link to findings from the research work titled Prophylactic Procurement of University Students in Southern Ethiopia: Stigma and the Value of Condom Machines on Campus that he and colleagues have conducted. Some of it’s a bit technical, but the messages come through very strong. We’re really pleased to have to have provided the condom vending machines for this research (Twist2Vend – B5m and B5m2 models), and it’s good to know that such simple, low cost (and British made) machines could stand up so well to the rigours of a tropical environment, and make a positive contribution to improving sexual health in the African continent.
