It's that time of year again -- back to school and back to germs. Add to that the fall festivals, corn mazes, fairs and the fact that we're on the go all weekend long making the most of this short season. The last thing we want is an illness to sideline us during this beautiful time of year. But soap and water aren't always available to fend off those germs. Which means it's hand sanitizer to the rescue.
However, the harsh alcohol and strong scents of many hand sanitizers do not lend themselves to user friendliness. So I was intrigued to team up with MomsMeet and try out the Probiotic Hand Sanitizers from Desert Essence.
Desert Essence creates products inspired by the beauty and resilience of nature and powered by the potency that comes from the desert. All of their products are based on the premise that beauty is natural, and nature is beautiful. Utilizing botanicals like Tea Tree, Jojoba, and Argan Oil, their personal care products get the job done without unnecessary additives.
Desert Essence Probiotic Hand Sanitizers don't leave your hands feeling sticky -- they feel more like you've used a non-greasy lotion, and your hands feel soft and moisturized. The scents are light and not overpowering -- a lingering hint of lavender, a little lemon scent, a bit of invigorating tea tree oil. But that doesn't mean they're not powerful. Through a patented technology, a “membrane” is created around the probiotic to protect it from the antibacterial formula. Probiotic benefits will be delivered after the sanitizer activity completes. This means the sanitizer doesn’t kill the probiotic, and the probiotic doesn’t neutralize the sanitizer. Other highlights include:
- Kills 99.99% of germs
- Delivers good bacteria courtesy of probiotic-packed Kefir
- Nourishes and conditions the skin
- Bad bacteria is eliminated, and the probiotic thrives
- Botanical extracts including Tea Tree Oil, Thyme, Elderberry and Echinacea also help reduce bacteria
- Comes in three scents: Tea Tree Oil, Tea Tree Oil & Lemongrass, Tea Tree Oil & Lavender
- Comes in two convenient sizes: a large bottle for desktop/counter top use and a small, portable size perfect for purse or backpack
- Certified B Corporation, Cruelty Free, Vegan and Gluten Free
A 1.7 oz bottle of Desert Essence Probiotic Hand Sanitizer typically retails for $4.49 and an 8 oz bottle typically retails for $9.99. However if you purchase at desertessence.com there's a limited time offer available.
