We are a well-renowned soaps and oils provider that has featured high-quality and affordable products since our first day.
Our core mission is to incorporate a mosquito repellent product into everyday use for the most vulnerable members of our communities. We believe that malaria protection must be safe, affordable, and accessible to everyone without needing any form of behavioural changes.
Welcome to Uganics Repellents, your number one source for oils and mosquito repellent products. We're dedicated to giving you the very best of our products, with a focus on ensuring that you have the best natural way of repelling mosquitoes and preventing malaria.
Founded in 2016 by Joan Nalubega, Uganics Repellents has come a long way from its beginnings in Mpigi located in central Uganda. It is important that we share with you how Uganics came to exist. As a young girl living in an orphanage, our founder, Joan, suffered from malaria frequently. She missed school, lost weight and was labelled different names due to her sickly nature.
Long story short (because we value you time), when Joan joined the Social Innovation Academy as a Scholar, it occurred to her that she can do something about a problem she faced when she was a child. Through brainstorming ideas that led to the founding of Uganics, Joan says that she found meaning in her own suffering and an incredible intrinsic motivation to create a Malaria Free World.
What makes Uganics unique is that we sell our organic mosquito repellent products with high margins to resorts, lodges and high-end hotels to tourists looking for a natural way of preventing mosquito bites during their trips. We are then able to cross finance and subsidize our sales to rural mothers at the same price as ordinary soap. The impact is leveraging an everyday consumer product to fight malaria. Mothers can protect themselves and their children against one of the biggest killers in Uganda.
We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy offering them to you and contributing to the fight against malaria. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
