About Arion International

Arion introduces new concepts in healthcare. One of these products is Swash, this concept provides a hygienic, quick and convenient solution for washing a person lying in a (hospital) bed. Swash uses cloths and wipes with a special lotion that cleans and protects the skin. The water that is saved by making use of Swash in stead of a wash-tub is made available in countries where it is most needed.

Irritation leads to (sustainable) innovation.

One litre for one litre

In our program One litre for one litre you can convert the water saving or water consumption of your product, service or organization into an equal amount of litres of clean drinking water in developing countries. Choosing a selection of customers or donating more litres is also an option. Transparency is paramount and we are happy to help you communicate about it!
