(Thanks to Ruth for info).

Manningham Pharmacy 200 High St Lower Templestowe is a compounding pharmacy. It is the in the Manningham medical centre. Their manufacturing facility prepares 50 ml tubes/bottles  of handlotion with the requisite 60% + alcohol, for $14.95 each tube/bottle.

They are happy to supply individual Manningham Probus club members’ orders for themselves and family.  If supplies run low at any time, then members may have to wait around for 30 minutes or so until a fresh batch is made up.  They do not accept telephone orders.
While the price is higher than mass produced products iin Supermarkets, this reflects the higher unit manufacturing costs.  The big advantage is their ability (not unlimited!) to prepare their own product.
