Natural Alternative to Toxic Anti-Bacterial Products
Using anti-bacterial products such as hand sanitizers and soaps containing harmful ingredients (like triclosan) has become commonplace in our world today. As a result we’ve seen bacteria become stronger and more resistant to antibiotic treatment.
The founders of the Clean Well company began looking for an all natural way to kill germs, and found that there are several naturally occurring oils that have antimicrobial properties. After much research and development, they were able to patent a substance they call “ingenium”, a formula of natural oils – mainly thymus, or thyme – that has been FDA approved to kill MRSA (staph), E.Coli, and Salmonella.
They’ve used ingenium to produce both an anti-bacterial soap, as well as an alcohol-free hand sanitizer. Now I don’t have to spray alcohol on my hands during this time of year when they’re so dry already! The hand sanitizer has such a nice citrus scent, and comes in a spray bottle as well as convenient wipes. Their site includes a handy store-finder so you can stock up!
I had pretty much sworn off sanitizers or anti-bacterial anything until I read about Clean Well. They have used the resources existing in nature to battle germs — and won. Visit the Clean Well website to learn about the sustainability of their products – this truly is a “green” company that any environmentally conscious person can stand behind.
