Having had issues with other hand sanitizers in the past, we were intent on finding a natural solution that would gently sanitize skin (and surfaces) effectively and not contain any artificial chemicals, preservatives, or animal products. After many failed attempts, we came up with a hand sanitizer that we are finally happy to have our friends and family use.
Botanicz Defense is our 100% natural hand sanitizer – made with powerful, organic essential oils with no artificial ingredients or preservatives to degrade or dull the oil’s potency, which can cause you to not get the full benefits of the natural ingredients. It contains ethyl alcohol in excess of the CDC's recommendations of 60% minimum content, along with peppermint, rosemary, lemon and tea tree essential oils to help support the skin. As it is sprayed on with a fine mist, it goes on easily.
Because essential oil molecules are very small (typically well under 500 Daltons) and not like other oils, they can evaporate into the air quickly if left unopened or heated. Thus, we only use steam distilled essential oils, and never add heat to them after they are distilled. Further, we feel so strongly about giving you the best possible benefits from our products that all of our products are made in small batches and have an expiration date. This ensures that you can experience our products with the best purity, freshness and potency possible, rather than using products where most of the oils have evaporated or been damaged by heat.
Unlike other products, our products do not rely on any synthetics or preservatives. We invite you to check out our ingredients!
