How Ethisan sidestepped supply chain issues

Supply chain shortages that began in 2020 as a result of the pandemic may not be resolved for some time. Since we launched Ethisan at the beginning of 2021, there has been extreme demand for hand sanitizers, with sales surging over 700% at one point.

Ethisan has been able to meet the exploding need for hand sanitizers over the last year because of a few key advantages: we don’t outsource anything that we do. We manufacture our sanitizers and surface cleaners in-house and source ethanol from top tier Canadian suppliers.

Our competitors who experienced the worst of these shortages didn’t have problems not because ethanol is difficult to source, but because of other bottlenecks in the supply chain. The cost of shipping has increased as have delays due to a variety of issues, including fewer workers, and limited availability of shipping containers.

To offset these additional costs and to compensate for the shortage of product, many businesses increased prices.

We never had to do that. With our simple formula (just seven ingredients, at most) and our access to high quality USP wheat ethanol, we were able to continue to provide an effective, plant-based, environmentally friendly, and 100% Canadian-sourced and -made hand sanitizer and surface cleaner.

We also offer free delivery on all orders in Ontario.

Ethisan is a solution you can count on.
