EDMONTON — A local business is dedicated to making hand sanitizer that smells great, is safe to use and also represents Indigenous culture.
Kanatan Health Solutions was started in Saddle Lake Cree Nation during the pandemic after hand sanitizer was being faced with a lot of resistance by the Indigenous community.
Marketing and Sales Director Tasha Power says the smell of generic hand sanitizer was a deterrent for many in the community, and triggering for those struggling with alcoholism.
“That really turned off a lot of our people, they do not want to smell like they just came from a party,” said Power.
