Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Sanitizer Cleans and Freshens Effectively with Simple, Ethical Ingredients
As many return to a new normal routine this week, help keep safe and clean with Dr. Bronner’s, Peppermint and Lavender Hand Hygiene Sprays. Whether it’s the return to the office and morning commute, or back to college campus, the Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Hygiene Sprays (RRP €6.95) are the perfect addition for your desk, the glove compartment of the car or pop it in your handbag for ethical hygiene on-the-go.
Certified organic and fair trade, Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Hygiene Sprays contain the active ingredient, ethyl alcohol, which is 99.9% effective against germs while organic glycerin is added to the hand spray, rather than synthetic petrochemical thickeners, to naturally draw moisture into the skin and yield a smooth after-feel that is not sticky or drying. Dr. Bronner’s uses organic essential oils to offer the Organic Hand Sanitizer in two fresh herbal scents, Lavender and Peppermint.
Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Sanitizer can be used to safely clean surfaces in public bathrooms, classrooms, on buses, trains, and airplanes. Packaged in 59ml 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles that produce 500 sprays, it can even be used to freshen gym shoes and clothes.
Using certified fair trade and certified organic plant-based ingredients, Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Sanitizer provides consumers the safest options to meet their hygienic needs, all while building and lifting up the rural communities at the beginning of its supply chains who grow with regenerative practices to help mitigate climate change.
Dr. Bronner’s sources all of its major raw materials for its products from certified organic and fair trade projects around the world, supporting thousands of smallholder farmers, including the sourcing of palm oil from Ghana, coconut oil from Sri Lanka, and olive oil from Palestine and Israel. The fair trade and organic peppermint oil used in Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint products, including Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Sanitizer, is grown in India using regenerative organic farming practices—which help restore soil health and sequester atmospheric carbon.
The Dr. Bronner’s range including the Hand Hygiene Sprays are stocked in health stores and selected pharmacies nationwide and can also be purchased online at www.drbronner.ie
