Is Jao Hand Refresher made with safe ingredients?
Our Hand Refresher is made with65% Natural Ethyl Alcohol, derived from corn, which kills germs safely using no bacteriostats that weaken over time and can grow resistant germs. Alcohol kills germs by drying out their cell wall. We do not use Benzalkonium Chloride or Triclosan, which are bad for humans and the environment, and are known marine pollutants!
Does it actually work?
Jao Refresherwas tested against seven of the most likely hand contaminants, specifically: Escherichia Coli, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Staphylococus Aureus, Klebsiella Pneumoniae, Candida Albicans, Salmonella Choleraseous and Streptococcus Pneumoniae. In all cases, the "kill rate" was less than one minute.
How does it work?
Glycerin and Glyceryl Polyacrylate are humectants. They begin with natural glycerine which is a byproduct of soap and is thickened with .2% mix of Amino Methyl Propanol and Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer which are safe and have to be used together to thicken the glycerine to become a much better moisturizer. D-Panthenol is a vitamin good for healing skin. Aloe is soothing. Methyl Glucose Ether Distearate is derived from corn sugar. It is an emollient to protect the skin from the drying effects of the alcohol. Plus we have Chamomile, Calendula, Lavender, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Geranium and Sage in our boutique blend.
Why hand sanitizer vs. anti-bacterial soap?
"FDA believes that there should be clearly demonstrated benefits to balance any potential risks. There currently is no evidence that over-the-counter antibacterial soap products are any more effective at preventing illness than washing with plain soap and water"- fda.govJao couldn't agree more. This is why we do not use chemical antibacterial ingredients. Only alcohol and essential oils. Safe and effective. We have been aware of this problem for over 15 years.
Why does my new product smell slightly different than before?
Because we only use essential oils and not synthetic fragrance, you might notice a slight fragrance variation from batch to batch. This is because the essential oils are made from plants and each growing season there are changes due to weather, moisture and sun.
