The country’s oldest distillery announces its latest addition to its essential product line after it launched Consumer Protect 70% Ethyl Alcohol -anti bacterial sanitizer at the start of the Covid-19 ECQ late March last year.
Si Antibacterial Liquid Hand Soap (Calamansi and Dalandan variants) is made with the by-product of the country’s premium Philippine craft spirits Manille liqueur de Calamanis and Dalandan.
The production process of Manille Liqueur advocates sustainable manufacturing and upcycling initiatives. As part of the company’s thrust to help preserve the environment and reduce its carbon footprint, we developed a line of anti-bacterial hand soap using the by-products from the production of Manille Liqueur de Calamansi and Manille Liqueur de Dalandan. The calamansi and dalandan rinds, seeds, juice, and the mesocarp/endocarp of the fruits are ground into a citrus “mud”, as we call it, and transformed into a natural by-product. This Calamansi and Dalandan mud is used as the essential active ingredients to create “SI ANTI-BACTERIAL LIQUID HAND SOAP” with Natural Calamansi (Philippine Lemon) and Dalandan (Philippine Orange).
Since Manille Liqueur de Calamansi was launched by Destileria Limtuaco & Co., Inc. in 2014, the brand has always championed the Philippines. From the unique zesty freshness of calamansi and dalandan in vodka base, to the packaging concept with Filipino design elements of floral embroidery and callado design that you would find in a barong Tagalog, Manille Liqueur boasts a distinct taste, look and feel that matches the brand’s identity of the best Filipino experience in a bottle.
The story behind each bottle makes it more special, considering the corporate passion for local produce and farming communities. The company supports local farmers by paying them the market price of Calamansi and Dalandan. By cutting out the traders, the farmers get 100% of the profits from dealing with the company. “It’s sort of a CSR effort for our company. “This increases every farmer’s margin a great deal,” says Olivia Limpe-Aw.
The natural active ingredients from the calamansi and dalandan by-product have whitening and antiseptic properties while the fruit pulp exfoliates dead skin, removes dirt and lightens the dark spots & other impurities.
