Availability of soap is crucial in hand hygiene. This is especially challenging in rural areas, although even in isolated areas, cheap solid bars of soap are sold almost everywhere. So what is the problem then? A common problem reported is that in public toilets, schools, markets, health posts and other public places, soap disappears: dropped in drains, eaten by goats or rodents, taken for personal use, resulting in soap not being there when needed. This is why we developed the XOPI.
The XOPI (c) is a soap dispenser that uses locally available bars of solid soap. The dispenser grates soap, much like a cheese grater, and releases fine grated soap flakes for easy use. The soap is safely locked in a plastic (recyclable) container with a key-less lock, which prevents easy removal. The XOPI complies to European standards for user safety and use of materials. It is a very sturdy and durable device. The product safety and durability is tested by the renowned certifying body TüV. See for more details the sub-page: XOPI Technical.
