    Looks like hoarders are coming out and selling it to the companies like Kogan to unload their stuff. I now see gloves/masks/hand sanitisers in the shopping centres pop-up stores where the stores mainly used to sell shoes or clothes now added these.

    • Exactly.

    • Yep, an electronics business selling hand sanitiser is a bit of a red flag. Would make me think twice about ordering any other product from them so they are perhaps shooting themselves in the foot.

      See update in comment

      • How is it any more unusual than a distillery selling hand sanitiser?

        • Both alcohol

        • The electronics company have obviously sourced the stock from somewhere - and given the current stock shortages would most likely be through a dubious channel (e.g. stockpiling at the start of this pandemic) … whereas distilleries are making their own products.

            @mrdevil: Electronic companies have the key component - Isopropyl alcohol - as part of their normal supply chain, as it's commonly used as a cleaning agent, and any supplier of Isopropyl is likely now also offering hand sanitiser due to demand.

            and given the current stock shortages would most likely be through a dubious channel (e.g. stockpiling at the start of this pandemic)

            Simply baseless speculation.

            • @dm01: Isolation must be doing a number on you..

              If they had their own isopropyl they would have it as their own brand not Dettol.

                @apptrack: My original reply was to the comment…

                Yep, an electronics business selling hand sanitiser is a bit of a red flag…

                …which is nonsense.

                If you want to talk specifically about KG Electronics, they've been selling hygiene and sanitation products since long before COVID19 and Dettol branded stuff could no doubt be obtained through their regular supply channels.

                But all of you please continue with your conspiracy nonsense if it helps pass the time.

                • @dm01: I would have to say in this case that I was wrong and apologise. I dug a little deeper into this company and it seems they were indeed selling Dettol branded products mid last year according to archive.org

                  I had not realised that this particular Electronics store was one that simply sold a vast range of non electronic products.

                    @Gravy: That's very decent of you to say, but no need to apologise. Lately it seems people are quick to pass judgment or even demonise without performing any kind of scrutiny. I sometimes like to provide a counterpoint.

                    Thanks for your message.

                    • @dm01: Yes I agree, I was too quick off the mark on this one (I think because it initially looked like the company was trying to hide something by reselling via Kogan and it was wasn't immediately evident how to directly access the company selling the product). I guess a lot of people are just hyper alert at the moment with regards to stuff like this. I had requested to mods to remove my comment but request was denied. I'm following it up though.

        • What? A distillery has the capability to manufacture sanitiser themselves.
          These 2 things are miles apart.

          • @arkdog: As does a chemical manufacturer like those supplying Isopropyl to electronics companies.

            • @dm01: But once again, it's Dettol branded?

                • @dm01: Your statement is that an electronics company has the same capacity to make hand sanitiser as they have access to isopropy, which I agree with. I also don't think they hoarded the hand sanitiser as they have sold it in the past.
                  What I commented was in regards to what the OP posted, which is Dettol hand sanitiser, and what I took your comment as is you saying that KG is making this hand sanitiser and selling it which couldn't happen as it's Dettol (which was my point).

                  Which obviously isn't the case as you've now explained.

                  Thanks for the clarification

      • I retract this comment and apologise. After further investigation I have found that they were selling Dettol branded products well before Covid19 appeared. I'm unable to delete the comment and my request to mods to delete has been denied due to the number of subsequent comments following my post.

    • Since property speculation is pretty much backed by the Govt don't think we'll ever see any action there, but at least hoarders are getting it

  • Thanx op copped.

  • Thanks OP

  • Thanks OP. Finally, I will have hand sanitser! Currently on our 60ml bottle…

  • Can't believe the price of this stuff at the moment… crazy times!

    • yeah $8+ per bottle and it's selling like hot cakes.

      • I still don't know where to buy 100% iso anymore. Surely it's not all that hard to make and in a few months there will be an oversupply?

    • +4 votes

      What are you talking about? This is essentially normal, pre-COVID pricing!

      • I've never purchased this particular product so had no idea it's normally that expensive (can't see why it should be as it's very cheap to make)

        The last hand sanitizer I purchased from Aldi was 1L and cost $7.99 (from memory) but was a couple of years back but still going well :-)

        Aldi = $7.99/L
        Dettol = $40.83/L

        It's still very expensive for me for what is essentially alcohol with Aloe Vera Extract for moisture, it's not expensive to make this stuff by any means but Dettol sure do seem to put some great margin on their products if this is the normal price they charge…

        UPDATE: You are 100% right, google sent me to Chemist warehouse to buy it (but out of stock but charge $5.99 per bottle at the moment - they report standard price is $6.99) so as Kogan have it in stock not too bad but I would not call it a bargain by any means and still consider Dettol a ripoff at this price for what the product actually is… but get what you can at the moment I guess… https://www.chemistwarehouse.com.au/buy/53985/dettol-refresh...

        • Well Four pillars made $800,000 dollars selling hand sanitisers at $50 a litre delivered so this is cheap now.

          And dodgy distilleries like Four pillars dont even make the ethanol. You could say they were importing mass amounts and hoarding them to create the current situation.

          • @fuzor:

            …And dodgy distilleries like Four pillars dont even make the ethanol. You could say they were importing mass amounts and hoarding them to create the current situation.

            Oh gosh, don't say that - distilleries are definitely making it all themselves according to the detectives further up!

  • overpriced item from hoarders should not appear on Ozbargain website. It is not bargain.

    • Bargain for sure! stop living in the past, get a life and move forward

    • I agree. Given that it is a bulk purchase, it is expensive. And given that an electronics retailer decided to trade in hand sanitiser it is obvious that there must have been a healthy profit margin involved. We should not encourage random retailers from other sectors buying "medical" necessities and selling them at inflated profits, instead of allowing the stock to flow to the normal outlets. This is why countries around the world are having difficulties sourcing critically necessary medical supplies, because stock is hijacked even after it is sold when someone offered a higher price.

        And given that an electronics retailer decided to trade in hand sanitiser…

        As I've said elsewhere in this thread

        KG Electronics, [have] been selling hygiene and sanitation products since long before COVID19 and Dettol branded stuff could no doubt be obtained through their regular supply channels.


        …there must have been a healthy profit margin involved

        Yes, businesses need profit margin to stay afloat. With those profits they can buy more stock, pay their employees, pay tax revenue to the government etc etc.

        …and sell them at inflated profits…

        As highlighted elsewhere, this is pretty much normal, pre-COVID19 pricing, and that's before taking the included shipping into account.

        • I did not know they traded in that. But I still doubt they had bulk listings of this stuff in online market places before, and I think there's something wrong with stock showing up in bulk in market places while chemist shelves are empty.

          Yes, businesses have to make profit. But there's a fine line between ensuring business continuity and buying products people are desperate for in bulk. I doubt they are doing this to provide a service. I maintain the view that these products deserve to be on chemist shelves, available for sale as single units, instead of available in packs of 6 to people who are capable of online shopping (which the groups at risk, such as elderly and people with serious illnesses, are often not).

          • @Make it so:

            I did not know they traded in that. But I still doubt…

            Yes, there are numerous people on here happy to make assumptions or trust their ungrounded doubts and suspicions rather than spend a few minutes researching some simple facts.

            I doubt they are doing this to provide a service. I maintain the view that these products deserve to be on chemist shelves…

            Do you think chemists don't exist to make a profit? Hand sanitiser is not a medicine - no doctor has prescribed it to anyone - why should a chemist have the monopoly on it? If you actually thought through your argument, it would make the most sense to insist it be on supermarket shelves, not those of chemists. Just about everybody needs to go the supermarket at some point or another - why not insist on it being kept there? Makes no sense to make hand sanitiser the domain of pharmacies - that would just require more people go to more places when they're supposed to be isolating.

            Yes, businesses have to make profit. But there's a fine line between ensuring business continuity and buying products people are desperate for in bulk.

            Are people desperate for hand sanitiser? Again, it's not a medicine - it's a convenience product. No one has been prescribed hand sanitiser.

            …available for sale as single units, instead of available in packs of 6 to people who are capable of online shopping (which the groups at risk, such as elderly and people with serious illnesses, are often not).

            The elderly and seriously ill are likely a lot less inclined to be venturing out as often as younger, working, more mobile members of the population, and instead spending more time at home where hands can be washed with soap and water. So if hand sanitiser really is a necessity, one could argue it's needed more by those who are more likely to order online anyway.

            Finally, I don't consider 6 x 200ml to be a bulk amount, and there will be a lot of people ordering this so they can give them away to friends and family.

            • @dm01: I never used the word "medicine". And I said "Chemist", nor "pharmacy" - they are not the same. You are quick to accuse people of not researching or thinking for someone who does not read.

              I never said chemists should have a monopoly, but fact remains that chemists cannot get enough stock while it now shows up online (with interstate shipping times of 2+ weeks based on my recent experiences), which means nobody can get it in a decent time.

              Hand sanitiser a convenience product…?

              So by your logic, everything should be in a supermarket? I have no problem with it being there, but people still go to chemists for personal care products. And I am sure they can use the business more than online sellers.

  • You would have to be an idiot to pay $49 for 6 bottles of dettol hand sanitiser.

  • whats the advantages of this over washing with just water?

    • Marketing and fear mongering. Soap and water will work just fine. I mean if you're a business and still have support personnel, I get it. But for home use? You're just wasting money.

      It's easier to keep one of these in your car than a sink.

  • So this is what is happening

    As the panic of COVID-19 is flushing down, all the hoarders, who thought they will be in for long lockdown have now freaked out. Many hoarders are now going back to store to return as many as 150 packs of 30pack TP and liters of hand sanitizers back.

    one of the examples

    I would strongly suggest to not promote or buy these if you don't need it on urgent basis.. my 2c these are…

    • Many hoarders

  • unbloodyaustralian

    Down voting because of major issue with retailer.
    1. Their support is potato, i've had many issues
    2. Their price jacking practices (add 15% price increase, then give 20% off promo…)
    3. This here. This is like $15 worth of stuff. Get stuffed.

    Hope the government actually legislates the +20% increase limit on cleaning and hygiene products…

  • What about this legislation?

    Biosecurity (Human Biosecurity Emergency) (Human Coronavirus with Pandemic Potential) (Essential Goods) Determination 2020

    https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2020L00355

    Definition of price gouging,

    (2) A person engages in price gouging in relation to essential goods if:

    (a) the person supplies, or offers to supply, the goods during the COVID-19 human biosecurity emergency period; and

    (b) the person purchased the goods in a retail transaction on or after 30 January 2020; and

    (c) the value of the consideration for which the person supplies, or offers to supply, the goods is more than 120% of the value of the consideration for which the person purchased the goods.

    • Too many people happy to support the practice and defend those doing it. Some go as far as describing hand sanitizer as a convenience product to justify it (!).

      • Two questions:

        1. Have you even yet bothered to look up the normal price of one of these? I get that you're sensitive because I called out your earlier silliness, but to keep harping on about how this deal constitutes price gouging is just downright nuts! It's normal, pre-COVID pricing…and includes shipping!

        2. Why on god's green earth have you enclosed an exclamation mark inside parentheses…AND THEN ALSO TERMINATED WITH A FULL STOP? IT'S UTTER MADNESS! #stop!abuse

        • When people start personal attacks in all-caps and correcting grammar, it's always a giveaway.

          Oops, you're wrong, this deal's price is inflated beyond even the RRP, not "pretty much normal, pre-COVID19 pricing, and that's before taking the included shipping into account" as you said.

          Enough fun for today. In all seriousness, you don't seem like an unreasonable character and posted some good deals. Why not get your facts right before abusing long-term members in defence of businesses which take advantage?

            @Make it so: Your threshold for what constitutes "personal attacks" and "abusing long-term members" is as low as your threshold for "inflated profits".

            Thanks for the links, but you forgot this one, this one and this one on your little cherry-picking expedition.

            Also don't forget to add $8.95, and $9.95 shipping cost for your linked retailers respectively.

            Why not get your facts right before abusing long-term members in defence of businesses which take advantage?

            Why not go back and correct your original comment from yesterday if facts have suddenly become important to you?(!).

            I agree. Given that it is a bulk purchase, it is expensive.
