This Clean + Soothe Hand Sanitizer kills common germs as it uses 70% alcohol. Now, more than every, we need to keep our hands free of germs. With the addition of a naturally-derived thickener, the formulation is easily-applied, offers full coverage, and a soft feel. To keep hands hydrated and moisturized, organic aloe vera, a well-know and accepted solution for skin hydration and moisturization, is incorporated into the formulation.

This formulation features Benecel E10M which is a nature-deried, vegan-suitable thickener that offers solution clarity, electrolyte tolerance to stay put on hands and shear-thinning properties. No neutralization is needed and it provides a non-tacky skin feel. Ceraphyl 31 is a biodegradable, vegan-suitable, alcohol-soluble emollient that imparts a non-oily lubricity and boosts viscosity.
