Dr. Bronner’s, the organic and fair-trade personal care brand, has launched a brand new Peppermint Organic Hand Hygiene Spray (RRP - €6.95) for on-the-go, available to purchase from www.healthybuzz.ie, along with selected pharmacies and health food stores nationwide.
Certified organic and fair trade, the Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Organic Hand Spray contains the active ingredient, ethyl alcohol, which is 99.9% effective against germs, while the peppermint oil leaves behind an uplifting scent. Organic glycerin, which naturally draws moisture into the skin, is added to the hand spray rather than synthetic petrochemical thickeners, leaving a smooth after-feel that is not sticky or drying.
Dr. Bronner’s is a home and hand-bag essential that can be used on-the-go, in public bathrooms or on buses and trains. Packaged in 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, the Peppermint Organic Hand Hygiene Spray is the latest addition to Dr. Bronner’s hygiene product line, alongside the Lavender Organic Hand Hygiene Spray launched in 2008, but now offered in the classic Dr. Bronner’s peppermint scent.
Michael Bronner, President of Dr. Bronner’s and grandson of company founder Emanuel Bronner said “We are thrilled to launch our Organic Hand Hygiene Spray in Peppermint for Ireland, as peppermint is our classic Dr. Bronner’s soap scent, which stimulates the senses and focuses the mind. Additionally, this product celebrates the regenerative organic agriculture practices that successfully supply the organic and fair trade peppermint oil we use in all our products. This Peppermint Organic Hand Hygiene Spray is one more example of how we can build regenerative and fair supply chains and give consumers options for products that lift up rural communities and help mitigate climate change.”
Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Organic Hand Hygiene Spray is available at www.healthybuzz.ie, along with health food stores and pharmacies nationwide.

Further Info on Peppermint Sourcing:
The organic and fair-trade peppermint oil in this new product is sourced from Pavitramenthe, Dr. Bronner’s partners in Bareilly, India, where more than 1,500 farmers utilize regenerative organic agriculture practices, such as minimal tillage, diverse crop rotation, composting and cover cropping, to build healthy soils and sequester carbon. All the mint grown for Dr. Bronner’s Organic Peppermint Hand Hygiene Spray comes from farms that average less than 2 acres each in area. Pavitramenthe has made significant contributions to community development in the area, via such projects as funding medical camps, construction of home toilets, and distribution of water coolers for drinking water. These projects were paid for by the fair-trade premium Pavitramenthe receives from Dr. Bronner’s, which also works directly with Pavitramenthe farmers to increase knowledge and skills for implementation of regenerative organic agriculture practices.
