Keeping your hands clean is very important. Washing your hands, with soap and water would be your best option for clean hands. Sometimes that's impossible, so the next best thing would be hand sanitizer. There are so many germs everywhere, especially during the cold and flu season. You always have to be prepared, so carrying a hand sanitizer in your pocket or purse would be wise.
About SafeHands Hand Sanitizer
For my review, I received three SafeHands Alcohol Free Hand Sanitizers and three SafeHands Squirts Alcohol Free Hand Sanitizers. They look so pretty in all the colors, but I was disappointed to read the label and see the chemicals in them. The only thing different was the dye in each of them, but there was one bottle that was fragrance free and had no dye in it. The linked ingredients are chemicals that I would not want to use, so I would not recommend this product.
- Benzalkonium Chloride
- Deionized Water
- Cocamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate
- Chlorhexidine Gluconate
- Propylene Glycol
- Triethylene Glycol
- Polysorbate -20
- FD&C Blue No 1
- FD&C Yellow No 5
- D&C Red No 33
Here's the label, that was on the bottle of the Cool Blue Hand Sanitizer.
Here’s what SafeHands has to say about their product.
After years of in-depth scientific research and clinical testing, Dr. Jay Reubens, inventor of the first touch-free hand sanitizer dispenser, and Dr. David Dyer teamed up to create safeHands —the world’s first doctor-invented alcohol-free line of hand sanitizers. This non-toxic, foam-based hand sanitizer not only hydrates, but is skin-soothing and kills more than 99.99% of germs on contact. Both the safeHands Squirts and safeHands Classic Line, their respective adult and children line, is scientifically shown to INCREASE in its germ-killing ability after the 3rd consecutive use.
SafeHands does not use any alcohol in their Hand Sanitizers, instead they use Benzalkonium Chloride (BAC), the same ingredient in mouthwash and eye drops, to create a hand sanitizer that is tough on germs and SAFE for skin. The rich formula of every safeHands bottle moisturizes the skin without leaving hands irritated, dry and flaky.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
