Many will argue that hand sanitizers do more harm than good, and I tend to agree in terms of preventing illnesses. Immunity tolerance is an important part of a developing child’s life. However I can appreciate the need for something in a pinch, say after visiting a rest stop on I-95? Ick. The ingredients in typical hand sanitizers like Purell are less than desirable. Just to give you an idea, Purell rates a 7 in the Skin Deep Database. And there is the whole “it could kill you if swallowed” factor due to the concentrated amount of alcohol.
I came across Clean George and I breathed a sigh of relief that I found something safe and kid-friendly. Clean George is a hand purifier as opposed to a sanitizer. Traditional alcohol based sanitizers kill good and bad bacteria alike, which can actually make you susceptible to germs that make you sick. Clean George uses tea tree oil for its natural antibacterial properties. One squirt cleans off hands and leaves them feeling soft and moisturized, instead of dried out like some alcohol based ones tend to do. It’s list of certified organic ingredients aid to clean hands without promoting germ resistance.
Clean George is a very eco-conscious company using 100% post recycled plastic for their containers use only 100% recycled “save a tree” paper with vegetable ink, even for their business cards! Clean George is not tested on animals and is certified by EcoCert. It contains no icky synthetic ingredients, which is what I love the most!
Clean George comes in 3 scents Lovin’ Lavender, Mint-alyptus and Grapefruit n’ Sage (Sage not for pregnant mommies though!). My favorite was the Mint-alyptus which I carry with me in my purse. The Lovin’ Lavender for those who don’t mind lavender was really nice too… I keep it in our travel bag for day trips to parks. The scents are a little bit strong so one squirt is plenty… which is rather cost effective!
