Natural Hand Sanitizer

If you're trying to avoid the flu
And keep your hands clean too
Choose a sanitizer that's safe to use
And is as easy on the earth as it is on you.

All Natural vs. Antibacterial

With flu season around the corner and school starting, it's important to pick up the proper all natural hand sanitizers to fend off germs. Avoid picking up antibacterial sprays that contain harsh chemicals and can often do more harm than good.

  • Hand sanitizers that you'll typically find in stores can contain lots of scary chemicals like Triclosan & Benzalkonium Chloride, which overkill germs on the hand (whether good or bad) and actually cause bacteria to grow stronger.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. Lather up, then rub your hands together for about 20 seconds. That's about the time it takes to sing the "Happy Birthday" song twice. If you are not near a sink, use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Sanitize your hands the safer way by choosing natural hand purifiers. Pick products made from all natural or certified organic ingredients to keep your family safe during the upcoming cold season.
