The story of Saloncide...
Neal Eason, Managing Director of Saloncide Solutions Ltd started the company in April 2011. Neal brings along over 25 years experience in infection control and supplying cleaning & hygiene consumables to all commercial sectors.
In the wide variety of products supplied to his customers, there was one unique range that totally eclipsed the way chemicals will be manufactured in the future. That of course is the Anti-microbial alcohol free hygiene solution.
Through his original business, Neal introduced this to the dental, leisure, healthcare, councils, offices, catering & fitness clubs. The ground-breaking cleaner sanitizer took off immediately. The feedback from customers was incredible because they knew they were using something never seen in the market before that out-performed all others for sanitising capabilities (99.998%..... most others are 99.9%) and with the same chemical hazard rating as WATER!
In October 2010, Neal was exhibiting the Alcohol Free Hygiene Solution at a show and next to him was a hair & beauty stand. He noticed the jar of sterilizing solution (Barbicide) on their display with combs, brushes etc….inside the jar. A light bulb lit in Neal's head and realised there could be a gap in the hair & beauty industry for an alcohol free, safer more effective alternative sanitizer.
With this in mind, he collected some contaminated 'tools of the trade' and some of the market leader's disinfectant to compare against, from his brother who runs a hair salon, sent them all up to a Microbial & Environmental laboratory for testing.
The results came back with staggering results and actually out-performed the market leader.
Realising there was absolutely nothing like this in the hair & beauty market, Neal decided to re-brand the product to suit the industry and Saloncide Solutions was born.
