All these properties are made in collaboration with HealthGuard Corporation, Australia.
The product being offered by the company are anti-odour and washable up to 30 gentle hand washes. It kills 99 per cent bacteria and 99.94 per cent coronavirus.
Murtaza Lokhandwala, Co-founder of the company told Apparel Resources, “We did proper research regarding quality of the available product as well as the demand of the same. We talked to doctors and the companies offering medical equipment etc. We observed that there is a good scope of quality products.”
He further added that as of now the focus is on the domestic market as there is good demand from domestic market but he is open for export also. As of now, the company is appointing distributors in Gujarat and soon more states will be tapped.
