While the world waits for a vaccine, we will be over here making amazing products and handing out advice on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In the early days of the virus, we spent some time talking about hand sanitizer. We spent a lot of time talking about it. Hours. Days. Why?
Our founder’s wife was pregnant with their third child. A gorgeous baby girl. And they were struggling to find products to keep his family and his employees safe. They needed masks, gloves and hand sanitizer. But, if we have to make it, we wanted to be sure we were making a great hand sanitizer that was pleasant to use.
Here’s what we decided on:
- Fragrance Free. Why? Because fragrance is something a lot of people are sensitive to. Both the scent and the ingredients which can be very irritating. So, we took the fragrance out and dropped the cost.
- 75% alcohol. The CDC recommends a minimum of 60%. We never do anything half way. So we formulated with over 70% alcohol and got to a formula that is super effective at killing germs and still safe for everyone in the home. https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/hand-sanitizer-use.html
- Simple Ingredients. There are 4 – count them, FOUR… ingredients in our hand sanitizer. The stuff other companies add is just… stuff. You don’t need it. It doesn’t help you kill any more germs. And in fact, can be sensitizing or irritating. Keep it simple. In fact, WHO lists only 4 ingredients in their formulation recommendations. https://www.who.int/gpsc/5may/Guide_to_Local_Production.pdf?ua=1
- Quick Dry Down. Our formula dries down clean. You won’t be sticky, greasy or tacky after using it. It dries quickly and without any funky residue. If you have to use it, we want it to be easy.
We would love to be able to write a book about our hand sanitizer. But, it’s such a simple formula with such high quality ingredients – there isn’t much more to say. We recommend trying it to believe it. It’s on sale right now 50% off. Trust us… it’s the good stuff! You can find it at the link below.
