We know that you rely on Nellie’s to provide you with the best and safest options. We all know that washing your hands is the best defense against the bad stuff, but sometimes we need help when there is no running water. This is where hand sanitizer comes in!
While you might think that alcohol-based sanitizers are the “go to”, we don’t like the idea of introducing 60% alcohol to our bodies. Spraying a high alcohol dose on our child’s hands – multiple times a day – doesn’t sound good to us!
So, what do we use? We have chosen to work with an active ingredient called Benzalkonium chloride (BZK). BZK is an FDA-approved ingredient that is still effective but considerably safer for your body and mind. It’s our obvious choice – and it gets the job done.
The way you use it is more important that what you use. All recommended hand sanitizers require time to work and are intended to remain on your hands.
Wash first. Sanitize second. Stay safe!
