The Gold Standard of All Natural Hand Sanitizers Kills Germs on Contact

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 9, 2009 — The Center for Disease Control, along with several other international health organizations, have officially included the use of hand sanitizers to ensure good health habits during flu season¹. Allergic to commercial hand sanitizers or find them too drying? Look no further … gentle, moisturizing germ-free relief is a squeeze away with Jao Hand Refresher™.

Commuters, holiday travelers, teachers, doctors, nurses, moms, office employees, and others can defend themselves against germs, viruses, and the common flu with a bottle of Jao Hand Refresher. Recently featured in Health, Self, Allure, Elle andTravel & Leisure magazines, Jao Hand Refresher is the first “upscale” antibacterial. Its specially crafted formula is an instant disinfectant and aromatherapy boost in one. Jao Hand Refresher kills germs and freshens hands with ethyl alcohol (less drying than conventional hand sanitizers) and a blend of antiseptic essential oils, including lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus, geranium, and sage.

Jao Hand Refresher is 100 percent Triclosan-free. Triclosan is frequently found in commercial antibacterial soaps and lotions; this synthetic bacteriostat is a marine pollutant and controversial for its ability to give rise to bacteria that can become resistant. Jao Hand Refresher is also free from propylene glycol, parabens, and isopropyl alcohol. Gale Mayron, Jao Ltd.’s CEO and Founder, had a particular goal in mind when developing the formula for Jao Hand Refresher.

“We wanted to make a high quality hand sanitizer with natural ingredients that was less drying and chemical smelling, yet as effective,” said Mayron.

The product’s germ killing efficacy was 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.
