About Elyptol

Elyptol captures the power of nature to provide you with the best in skin-care, hand and hard-surface hygiene.

Our Mission

To work from the ground up.

Through years of extensive research and development using green chemistry, Elyptol has produced highly compatible skin-care and hygiene products. The formulations we created are effective for infection control for professional healthcare, specifically because Elyptol is designed for frequent use.

Eucalyptus was our inspiration; its healing and medicinal properties have been known in Australia for centuries.

We paired eucalyptus oil to equally natural sanitising ingredients – pure ethanol derived from sugar cane and corn. This combination brings you improved efficacy in eliminating germs and also a safer and gentler product.

This interplay is our DNA: our deep roots to the planet, a commitment to working in harmony with the natural world, and loving nature as much as we love people.

Come evolve with us to a new level of high and sustained positive outcomes.



Why We’re Different

Elyptol produces products that are antimicrobial (not just antibacterial), killing a wider range of germs.

Historically, competitors have been focused on the efficacy of germ kill as the single most important aspect of their product. In other words conventional sanitisers sought a faster kill rate via chemical engineering, but often at the expense of skin health. And still yet, touching a contaminated object within seconds after applying, renders the previous application as ineffective.

Frequent use is instrumental for true infection control.

Our botanically based formulation with an organic moisturising approach makes our product gentle on skin and ideal for frequent use. Our products are gentle on the skin due to both the soothing skin repair function of the eucalyptus, our organic moisturisers and the fresh clean scent that promotes frequent compliance.

Elyptol uses botanical food grade ethanol and eucalyptus ingredients known for soothing and healing aching bones and irritated skin.

Most competitive products are based on propan, 2-propanol which are of the petroleum chemical family. These petroleum chemicals can become hazardous materials, cause damage to skin with long-term use and bio-accumulate in the environment.

Elyptol’s products meet or exceed global efficacy standards across the antimicrobial spectrum by using natural green technology.

The Story of Elyptol

The desire for good healthcare led to the creation of the first Type 1 Eco certified and professionally registered hand sanitiser with a phenomenal kill rate of germs on skin and hard-surfaces. More importantly, because Elyptol is gentle on the skin, our formula could be used frequently which is necessary for significant and sustained health protection.

The simplicity of combining pure ethanol with eucalyptus oil was followed by waves of real world complexity on what it takes to pass clinical trials to win regulatory approval, and achieve high compliance levels for hand hygiene. Along the way came new realizations of the power of the Elyptol innovation. As Elyptol further developed, pandemic and healthcare acquired infections became a major global problem, which led to our product becoming part of a ‘pandemic prevention pack’ – further evidence that Elyptol has the power to kill some of the world’s most aggressive germs.

Elyptol’s confirmation as powerful against germs was followed by the verification that, unlike soap and non-botanical sanitisers, Elyptol was gentler on the skin.

Elyptol’s skin benefit became the salvation for Australia’s NSW Ambulance workers who suffered from rough, red hands due to their need to repeat hand hygiene and the sometimes harsh conditions of their workplace. NSW Ambulance Service selected our brand as their preferred skin hygiene product after a competitive evaluation against leading global brand sanitisers.

Our growing range of products for personal and professional use satisfies FDA OTC topical antiseptic guidelines; is TGA registered in Australia; EU CE registered; GECA certified; and is a member of the World Health Organization’s POPS program [Private Organisations for Patient Safety] that focuses on improving worldwide public health through better hand hygiene.
