The Aerosol Advantage

Today's aerosol is the ultimate in modern, user-friendly technology. 

Over 16 billion aerosols are produced worldwide annually - proof of their popularity, convenience and value for money. Here in Australia, we purchase around 300 million aerosols every year - around 12 for every man, woman and child!
