About this product: Our alcohol-based cleansers are made according to the Centers for Disease Control Guidelines for hand hygiene. They contain 75% alcohol by volume and are for use when soap and water are not available. The alcohol is either ethanol or isopropyl alcohol, depending on what supplies are available. The main difference you may notice is that isopropyl alcohol has more of an antiseptic aroma than ethanol. Available options are shown in the drop-down menu above (Iso*= Made with isopropyl alcohol. eth**= Made with organic ethanol). Our formula contains aloe vera to soothe the skin, and sodium lactate (a powerful humectant) to help maintain hydration. Our hand cleansers are free from artificial fragrances, thickeners, antibiotics and parabens, and they’re scented with essential oils. Each bottle provides approximately 375 sprays; this equals 75 to 125 uses per bottle.
Available in Lavender, Peppermint, and Grapefruit-Lime (make your selection using the drop-down box above).
Ingredients: Isopropyl alcohol or ethanol (75% v/v), aloe vera, purified water, sodium lactate, essential oils. Net wt. 2 fl oz (60 ml).
About the ingredients: Isopropyl alcohol is a disinfectant commonly used in antiseptic preparations. Ethanol is produced from a variety of agricultural crops; we source organic ethanol when available. Alcohol makes up 75% of our hand cleansers by volume. Sodium lactate is produced from corn and beet sugar. We use sodium lactate instead of glycerine because most glycerine is derived from palm oil, which is a major cause of deforestation.
About the packaging: Our alcohol-based hand cleansers are packaged in glass bottles. The 2-oz bottles are closed with a phenolic screw cap, and a fine mist sprayer is included. When you receive the bottle, remove the screw cap and place the sprayer in the bottle. Screw on firmly but don’t over-tighten. The glass bottles are reusable and recyclable. The sprayers and caps are reusable but are not recyclable.
