SOiL was born out of our family managed, organic essential oil farming operation in Zululand, Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa. Starting off in 2001, with a few small tea tree plantations SOiL began growing, harvesting and distilling aromatic plants for their precious oils. Under the guidance of Grant McMurray, SOiL has grown significantly to partner with farmers and producers all over the world. Our own farms grow a variety of crops for essential oils, and our producer partners and organic certified suppliers provide the balance of our wide range products.

We ensure our oils are tested using gas chromatography to analyse their chemical constituents. This way, we can ensure that an oil conforms to the agreed international standard of quality for essential oils.

As an eco-ethical range certified under the Organic Standard through independent certifiers; ECOCERT France, SOiL was the first company in South Africa to sell a complete range of 100% certified organic essential oils, massage oil blends and body care products. ECOCERT inspect our farming and processing facilities annually to ensure we continue to meet their strict organic standard. SOiL has recently been endorsed by both SA Vegan Society and Beauty Without Cruelty.

SOiL maintains its strong social and ethical guidelines by closely managing the production, manufacturing, packaging and distribution of all SOiL branded products directly from our farm.  This system encourages local economic growth, creates employment and utilises local, renewable resources while also cutting costs directly for the consumer. By owning most of that supply chain, we can control and understand what determines the quality of our products.

SOiL is registered as a Fair-Trade Company with ECOCERT Fair For Life and we are slowly developing Fair Trade Certified products, the sales of which will directly benefit and positively impact our workers. Our social responsibility program works hand in hand with our company values.

Chronic pain is not simply acute pain lasting too long. It is a pathology with physical changes in the nervous system (neuroplasty). It is usually, but not only, neuropathic in nature. Normal analgesics, designed for acute pain, have no effect or lose their effect after a short period. Every doctor has seen such patients – with debilitating pain that has no apparent cause and is resistant to their best efforts to relieve or control it. About 15% of the western populations suffer with chronic pain daily and about 5% with High Impact Chronic Pain – that is, a high negative impact on their lives. Even opioids do not control chronic pain for long and in many cases, because of OIH – Opioid Induced Hyperalgesia actually makes the pain worse. Also the opioid crisis in the USA due to overuse and abuse is threatening to spread outside the USA. So Chronic pain needs to be treated in more ways. This practice does this – control patients’ chronic pain with a lot less or no analgesics or other, ineffective, drugs.This is done by performing interventions ranging from injections (nothing new) to a variety of Radio Frequency procedures (NOT just ‘rhyzotomies’) to neurolysis of a variety of nerve impingements to implantation of percutaneous spinal cord stimulators or implanted intrathecal morphine pumps. Dr Raath is a specialist anaesthesiologist who has been practicing chronic pain management full time for the past 12 years. The motto is “Pain relief with less drugs using interventions to relieve chronic pain”.

The Touchless Germcontrol (Pty) Ltd Company was launched 12 years ago in 2007 by Mr Paul and Antoinette Cooper in Gauteng. The company expanded in leaps and bounds in Gauteng and generated the need for representation in the Western Cape.  Touchless Germcontrol, Western Cape CC was established in January 2009 and is headed by Theo and Sumarie Geldenhuys.

Product information

We import the latest technology in hand hygiene products from the Binderbauer Pharmaceutical Company in the USA.  The brand name of the product is Germstar and it has been in use for many years in the USA and Europe.  The touchless dispenser has a patented operating mechanism with no moving parts which increase the lifespan of the product tremendously.   The alcohol sanitiser solution took more than 10 years to develop to perfection and contains emollients which help to improve the condition of your skin the more you use it.  The sanitiser solution also has all the international medical accreditations in both USA and Europe.

Target market:

Our touchless dispenser and waterless alcohol hand sanitiser are in use in 3 different areas e.g. medical, food and corporate industries.  Initially we targeted the medical and food industry – thinking that we would be limited to those markets only.  Our clients in the medical field include the LIFE-, Mediclinic- and Melomed Hospital Groups, selected Netcare hospitals, Pathcare, GSK, Sanovi- Aventis, Adcock- Ingram, and Pheizer, multiple clinics, doctors, dentist etc.   Parmalat SA is one of our anchor clients in the food industry.

We soon realised that the design, formulation and application of our product spoke to another type of client as well and we quickly spanned into the corporate industry. This market showed growth beyond what we expected and we determined that there is a huge need for hand hygiene solutions amongst people working in close proximity to each other in office buildings.  In this market our clients include, but is not limited to SANLAM and Liberty Life countrywide, Foschini, Multi-Choice, JP Morgan Worldwide Security Services, selected branches of Metropolitan Health and KPMG.  We also service a variety of smaller financial and insurance companies  as well as a lot of call centres e.g. Foschini’s ,  Lufthansa Global Telesales and the RCS group to name but a few.  We found that our touchless Germstar hand sanitiser is extremely popular in the office-like environment, because of the funky design and the user friendly application.  It increases user fascination which leads to increase of hand wash compliance.   The product is not at all in competition with the standard bathroom gear usually supplied by cleaning companies, but actually compliments the bathroom hand washing by increasing hand wash opportunities throughout buildings.

Accomplishments

We have the sole distribution rights for the Germstar touchless hand hygiene products in South Africa, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana and Namibia.

After intensive research of the Germstar product and comparisons to other similar and related products in the market by the LIFE Hospital Group, they afforded us the exclusive licence to be the sole provider of touchless dispensers and alcohol sanitiser to all the LIFE hospitals in the country.

We received our SABS: SANS certification in February 2011.   Currently we are also the only company manufacturing the sanitiser solution in-house.  This is a huge benefit to our customers, because we save on import price and the stress of waiting for stock to arrive.

Future Plans

This year the company is investigating into opportunities to broaden the product range.   We also centralised our location of manufacturing of the sanitiser in Cape Town.   This helps to maintain and improve the high standard and quality of the product.

Conclusion

It is the mission of Touchless Germcontrol to supply each customer with a product of high standing quality and to maintain and improve their experience of the product by delivering customer service which by far exceeds the normal expectation.  We are continuously increasing our customer base in our target markets in an extremely competitive industry annually, because we have a niche product which satisfies the need for quick, easy and effective hand hygiene.

From the frontlines of South Africa’s emerging cannabis industry, Cheeba Africa has announced the launch of the Cheeba Cannabis Academy.  This is the first learning platform dedicated to cannabis education on the African continent, which opens its online portal at a time when the industry is poised for rapid growth and making a significant contribution to sustainable socio-economic development. 

According to industry analysts, Prohibition Partner, the legal cannabis industry in Africa is predicted to be worth more than $US 7.1 billion annually by 2023. In the same time-frame, they estimate South Africa’s domestic market for cannabis and related products, excluding the legal, non-psychoactive CBD products, to be worth R27 billion per year.

Critical to the establishment of a world-leading, long-lasting and responsible industry is the provision of training and education that enables the development of a cannabis business ecosystem where entrepreneurs, growers, employers, medical professionals and wellness practitioners can all thrive.  “Cannabis has the potential to positively impact our economy, facilitating large-scale job creation, uplifting low-income communities, especially in under-served rural areas as well as contributing to the overall improvement of people’s health.  “However, in order for this to happen, we need to provide opportunities for people to develop industry-specific skills.  Cheeba Africa is proud to be the first contributor in this space” says CEO and co-founder Trenton Birch.

The first suite of four Cheeba Cannabis Academy short courses, which are aimed at those interested in entering the industry or adding cannabis expertise to their skills-set, are available online and open for enrolment now.  The Academy has partnered with the US-based cannabis online education platform, Medical Marijuana 411, and where necessary, customized the course content for the South African market. Some of their courses  provide a unique blended learning model where students get together in an online classroom with a maximum of 20 people which facilitates personalised learning and industry networking. 

Birch draws on a solid decade of experience in South African tertiary education having established three hi-tech campuses offering creative media tuition to over 450 students a year.  Ensuring the high quality of Cheeba Cannabis Academy’s offering has entailed 10 months of global research and learning journeys to worldwide centres of cannabis excellence such as California and Barcelona.  “We are proud to have partnered with the Cheeba Africa team to assist them in bringing medicinal cannabis education to South Africans.  With their extensive experience in education and cannabis they are well positioned to contribute significantly to the growth of their industry through world-class cannabis education,” says Christine Nazarenus, the Chief Vision Officer and co-founder of Medical Marijuana 411.

Birch also brings a personal passion to Cheeba Africa and the Academy. “I believe this is a passion industry,” Birch says. “Cheeba Africa is a cannabis health and wellness company promoting access to health and wellness through our CBD ranges, and we are deeply committed to education through the Cheeba Cannabis Academy and Craft Cannabis TV.”  He also has a vision of how the burgeoning cannabis industry can trigger much-needed economic transformation that enables marginalised South Africans to improve livelihoods.   Birch has been involved in establishing the Bridges for Music Academy in Langa  and taking action against inequality through developing educational programmes for disadvantaged youth.  “Cheeba Cannabis  Academy will soon offer a scholarship programme, and we will continue to host workshops in townships and rural areas when in-person training is possible again.”


The Academy benefits from long-standing relationships and close collaborations in the industry that precede the legalisation allowing for personal marijuana use and CBD products in South Africa.  Their advisory board includes doctors, pharmacists and industry experts such as Tony Buddon, who has been pioneering the use of industrial cannabis products since 1996 through his company, Hemporium.  Cheeba Cannabis Academy’s Head of Training and Facilitation , Jacqui Ramage (B.Pharm) says, “Education is going to be a fundamental differentiator when it comes to sustainable success in the South African medicinal cannabis industry.  A skilled industry will help to ensure accurate, relevant and accountable access to the markets. We are looking forward to welcoming our first cohort of students and journeying with them as they build the skills relevant to this exciting industry.”

Sales growth (for pharmacies) follows, and patients have better health outcomes which translates to reduced risks of co-morbidities and hospitalization.

Situated in the Western Cape, the company was founded in 2018 by a retail pharmacist with 30 years of experience in the industry. The fascination of pharmaceutics and pharmacology and the experience of providing community health service was the perfect reason to manufacture own products with Natural Care for the Whole Family in mind.

The beginning of 3Gi Investments as the holding company and 3Gi Pharmaceuticals as the first division of the company was a life long dream to establish a legacy for the three children of the owner, Christo Gie, to manage and grow the business in time.

The company name was derived from the three G’s and I (being the 3 kids and the owner himself).

The Mission of 3Gi Pharmaceuticals:

To produce natural products to provide relief of common conditions that generally occur in everyday life.

Our products:

The best ingredients are sourced for this purpose and manufacturing and packaging is done with highest ISO quality standards, by an ISO approved manufacturer in the Western Cape.

We believe in our products and the effectivity of the ingredients in combination with neat and purposeful packaging. We believe in providing REAL relief of symptoms, and prevention of conditions known to mankind throughout centuries.

Distribution and availability of products:

Products are distributed via the pharmaceutical wholesale currently, with the aim to have the products within reach of the general public by means of a convenient professional store location footprint throughout South Africa.

Good health should be a basic right and everyone deserves to live their best life, a life that is not only healthy but easy too.

As runners, surfers, fitness enthusiasts and generally active people, we care about wellness and what we put into our bodies. We all do our best to eat as clean as possible, smoothies, salads and poke bowls, but that’s not to say we don’t enjoy a good ol’ slice of chocolate cake and a craft brew from time to time either, we are all only human after all.

The reality is though, no matter how well we eat, be it local, organic or non-GMO, we can’t get all the nutrition we need from our diets alone. With the simplistic theme of “healthy living made easy” at our core, we founded Vitatech. Vitatech offers vitamin, mineral and nutritional supplements for like-minded people of all ages looking to get healthier and stronger.
