Can Sanitizer Clean Your Hands Without Containing Alcohol?


Alcohol vs. Non-Alcohol Sanitizer: Making the Safer Choice

In recent years, hand sanitizer has become a staple in many households, with alcohol-based options flying off the shelves at unprecedented rates. However, concerns have been raised about the safety and effectiveness of alcohol-based sanitizers, prompting a closer examination of their non-alcoholic counterparts.

Here are a few reasons why it may be wise to reconsider the use of alcohol-based sanitizers:

  1. Recalls and Contaminants: Alcohol-based hand sanitizers have been subject to multiple recalls by the FDA, citing unacceptable levels of benzene, acetaldehyde, and acetal contaminants. These substances pose serious health risks, including lung failure, blood clots, and severe dizziness.

  2. Skin Irritation: The use of alcohol on the skin can lead to severe dryness and irritation, thereby delaying the healing process for cuts and abrasions.

  3. Cancer Concerns: Numerous reports have linked alcohol exposure to various forms of cancer, raising significant health concerns.

But fear not—there's a natural alternative that's both effective and safe: Lemongrass Hand Sanitizer. Our formulation harnesses the power of nature's remedies, including aloe vera, tea tree oil, and lemongrass.

Aloe vera, renowned for its healing properties, not only soothes skin irritations but also boasts antibacterial properties that effectively cleanse the skin. Paired with the antimicrobial benefits of tea tree oil and the refreshing scent of lemongrass, our hand sanitizer offers a holistic approach to hand hygiene.

While we understand the convenience of alcohol-based sanitizers, we urge you to consider the potential risks and explore safer alternatives. Research for yourself and make an informed decision that prioritizes both your health and the well-being of the planet.
