Uniliver's Lifebuoy Recognized In Guinness Book Of Records

One of Unliver product, lifebuoy soap enters Guinness world book of records. This is attributed to one of the most remarkable exercise carried out by the company.

Recently in this year, to celebrate the world’s hand washing day, Uniliver went round 600 different schools in Nigeria to produce 37,809 students who assembled at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.

It was recorded that the total number of pupils who gathered at the square washed their hands at the same time and at the same venue, using the same ingredients; Lifebuoy soap and water.

This exercise is done in a bid to bring to awareness the importance of hygiene amongst youths and children of the nation.

The Managing Director, Unilever, Mr. Thabo Mabe, said, “We know the efficacy of hand washing in combating diarrhea and a host of other diseases; we know the negative impact of diarrhea in this country. Let us continue in earnest to encourage the public by individually telling people in our neighborhoods, our associates, friends and family members to take on this very inexpensive habit that can save life.”

Uniliver promised to continue in promoting the health awareness and hygiene in contribution towards reducing the mortality rate in the country.
