Vicky Silverthorn

The Visionary

"As a Professional Organiser of 10 years I have first hand experience of understanding how important it is for people to maintain a 'clean' lifestyle, not just for a healthy environment, but mind and body too. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, my passion and desire for 'cleaner' living grew beyond the home. How could I maintain my lifestyle at home - outdoors, and help reduce the risk for myself and others of picking up infectious diseases? That's when I realised there was a gap in the market for an effective fabric and clothing sanitiser that could be used outside, as well as at home. Everything that was available meant the item had to be spun in the wash or was made with chemicals that didn't suit my lifestyle. But when I learned about the wonderful multipurpose use of Hypochlorous Acid (HOCI), I just knew that we could create a mighty product, with a mega purpose. I believe we have. I call it the everything sanitiser spray.”

Kay Ali

The Product Formulator

"When Vicky proposed her idea to create a portable sanitising spray that could be used out-and-about on fabric and clothing, I knew of just the perfect ingredient. Hypochlorous acid. A wonder substance that is highly effective, works super fast and causes zero irritation, even if accidentally ingested. How did I know about it? Well, as a Functional Medicine Practitioner working in the wellness industry for 10 years, I draw inspiration from the human body all the time. It's a powerful, yet gentle compound our immune cells make in our bodies. It breaks down the cell wall of bacteria and viruses, killing the infection. The biggest challenge was to source the best team of scientists that could not only develop the technology that mimics our bodies’ HOCI, but also stabilise it and comply with the Biocidal Products Regulation. There are a couple of brands out there masquerading as the real deal, but sadly they're flogging highly unstable and unregulated HOCI. We wanted to create something superior. It wasn't an easy task, but we did it. It really is the best.”

Saskia Lankshear

The Product Developer

"When my childhood friend Vicky shared her idea of a sanitising spray, and asked if I could help her and Kay make it happen - I immediately opted 'IN'. As an 'on the go' mother of two small children, the concept made total sense to me - an all encompassing, safe to use sanitising spray to use out and about, or at home to keep your household safe from bacteria and viruses. Having spent the best part of 20 years developing products for the beauty industry, I was able to quickly tap into a network of bottle suppliers, label printers and a variety of other resources to help bring the concept to life! Creating products is something I do everyday and comes with a host of moving parts - but there is truly nothing more special than seeing it all come together - especially when it's a product like our Super Antibacterial Sanitiser Spray that will really make a difference to people's lives."
