Alcohol Hand Spray

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) says, "Washing hands with soap and water is the best way to get rid of germs in most situations."

However, in a pinch when soap and water are not available "you can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol."

Our quick-drying spray formula is made with 62-65% certified organic, fair trade ethanol, witch hazel, and vegetable glycerin to help leave skin feeling soft and moisturized without a sticky residue.

More About Alcohol Hand Spray:

Our Organic Hand Sprays use a simple formula of organic ingredients; 75% ethyl alcohol, witch hazel, glycerin, and essential oils—that's it!

Take our portable hand spray everywhere.

Besides your hands they can be sprayed on surfaces like door handles, faucets, or shopping carts or used in other public areas like taxis, bathrooms, classrooms, etc. Just pump out a bit and then wipe the surface with a tissue or spray directly on a paper towel and wipe!

Are your alcohol hand sprays effective against COVID-19?

All of our hand sprays contain 75% ethanol alcohol. The CDC recommends using sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to help protect yourself against illness. According to the CDC, high proof Ethyl alcohol, at concentrations of 60%–80%, is a potent virucidal (virus killing) agent for many viruses.

We cannot and do not make any claims that our sanitizers are effective against any specific virus such as the COVID, the flu, etc.  

A "Hand Sanitizer" is considered an over-the-counter (OTC) drug by the FDA. Our Alcohol Hand Spray has not been tested by the FDA. However, it does contain generally accepted anti-microbial ingredients that I feel good about using in my family.

Plain soap and water are still the best way to help deter the spread of germs. When you are on the go and soap and water are not available, alcohol-based hand rubs and sprays that contain greater than 60% alcohol can be effective if used properly.

While a hand sanitizer is useful in a pinch, it can fail under certain conditions. Hand sanitizers kill germs but they do not clean dirty hands. Hand sanitizers work best when hands are generally clean and not heavily soiled or greasy.
