The leading household company from the hill country – Sun Match has created history by being awarded the first SLS certification for the disinfectant category.

The company known by every Sri Lankan household with the brand ‘Soorya’, launched into the disinfectant category with two variants – Ice Pine Fresh and Lemon Fresh last year, with the aim of aligning with the company’s vision ‘Healthy Life, Healthy Nation’.

The innovative brand offering effective germ protection, is made using a technology called the broad-spectrum biological activity against germs, where the Sun brand disinfectants are able to completely wipe out 99.9% of germs, while ensuring a long-lasting fragrance that differentiates it from the basic germ kill. This product can be used widely to disinfect hard and soft surfaces, homes, offices, public areas, doorknobs, table tops and even hands and personal accessories such as clothes, bags and shoes. 

The SLS 688 certification award seals the ‘Sun’ brand positioning as a superior disinfectant in a market that’s been flooded with all sorts of subpar brands. This certification therefore is an enabler for all consumers to confidently purchase the Sun brand knowing that its quality supersedes several other products in the market.

“Given the COVID-19 virus has made every household turn to a trusted disinfectant product to keep the family safe, we ventured out with the mother brand name Sun that has been in existence for almost 40 years, says Director Gowri Rajan, the daughter of the founder T.R.R. Rajan. 

“I guess the brand to receive the accolade within a few months of its launch makes it special. We have always been committed to give the highest quality products just like what we have done with Soorya Match boxes, that has been the trusted friend of discerning housewives in the country. We were also the first ever SLS certified safety match brand in Sri Lanka and we are once again proud to take the lead in introducing the 1st SLS Certified disinfectant in the country,” added Rajan. 

As one of Sri Lanka’s largest family-owned enterprises, Sun Match Company has not only changed the lives of Sri Lankans for 38 years but has also been serving household needs in Madagascar and Kenya, offering unmatched quality and consumer-centric products. 

Governed by the philosophy of its late Founding Chairman T.R.R. Rajan of being fully dedicated to superior quality, safety, consumer satisfaction and sustainability, the organisation is always on the lookout for innovations that can be made available to the market at the highest quality at affordable prices.
