See how hand sanitizer are made in Ojota market in Lagos….as shared by IG user @thecreativeherbalist . . I finally found out the magic behind the sudden influx HAND SANITIZER MANUFACTURERS today… Ojota Market ni. #SwipeLeft . After a few days of staying indoors, I had to step out because I needed to get materials to make dish/clothes liquid soap from the market. With #3000 you can make a 25litre keg of soap, learnt this 2 years ago. With the imminent 'full stay at home order' I decided to make some because na 4 clothes my housemate dey wear per day. . On my way to the store after I got into the market, I noticed a lot of mixing was going on in almost every shop that sold 'chemicals' which was very unusual, and one thing they had in common was the color which was white/translucent. . Upon getting to the store, while waiting to collect my purchase it final dawned on me that they were all making HAND SANITIZERS. To confirm my fear, a lady seated in the store who also happened to be another customer was presented with a 5 litre keg full of liquid, next thing she did was to bring out sticker and slapped it on the container. Ready to be sent to the buyer I guess. . I saw people buying in litres for personal use while some bought in 50 litre kegs, to resell I guess. The market rate was #1000 for a litre. . So all they have to do is buy in bulk, get containers from the same market, get labels printed and resell. . Like a said a few days back, know who you are buying from. Making money DURING a pandemic is different from making money FROM a pandemic. . My fears: . 1. I doubt the formulation is right. Things can go wrong, there are reports of people having peeling/burnt hands already on social media after purchasing some sanitizers. . 2. I doubt the efficacy of the sanitizers as well. Make e no be say na ordinary gel you dey rub . Anyway, I am back in the safety of my home, I had a full scrub down with soap. Everything I brought back was sprayed with IPA (isopropyl alcohol), my outfit went straight into the washer. I am currently drinking a hot cup of lemon and ginger water May God save us all

After a few days of staying indoors, I had to step out because I needed to get materials to make dish/clothes liquid soap from the market. With #3000 you can make a 25litre keg of soap, learnt this 2 years ago. With the imminent ‘full stay at home order’ I decided to make some because na 4 clothes my housemate dey wear per day.

On my way to the store after I got into the market, I noticed a lot of mixing was going on in almost every shop that sold ‘chemicals’ which was very unusual, and one thing they had in common was the color which was white/translucent.

Upon getting to the store, while waiting to collect my purchase it final dawned on me that they were all making HAND SANITIZERS. To confirm my fear, a lady seated in the store who also happened to be another customer was presented with a 5 litre keg full of liquid, next thing she did was to bring out sticker and slapped it on the container.

I saw people buying in litres for personal use while some bought in 50 litre kegs, to resell I guess. The market rate was #1000 for a litre.

So all they have to do is buy in bulk, get containers from the same market, get labels printed and resell.

Like a said a few days back, know who you are buying from. Making money DURING a pandemic is different from making money FROM a pandemic.

My fears:

2. I doubt the efficacy of the sanitizers as well. Make e no be say na ordinary gel you dey rub

Anyway, I am back in the safety of my home, I had a full scrub down with soap. Everything I brought back was sprayed with IPA (isopropyl alcohol), my outfit went straight into the washer. I am currently drinking a hot cup of lemon and ginger water

PS: Stock up (Not Hoard) your homes o. The news going round now is that the Lagos markets are scheduled for lockdown soon
