Hand Sanitizer in Stock!

Yes! We are excited to announce we have hand sanitizer in stock. It’s our jumbo, no nonsense, 15 ounce bottle of Gel Hand Sanitizer contains 70% isopropyl alcohol with no synthetic fragrance or coloring. Available unscented or with organic lavender essential oil. Your purchase supports donations to local DR and ICU medical staff in our area. Check out this photo of our doctor friend who has received our sanitizer.

Available to purchase here.

Our in stock gel hand sanitizer contains 70% isopropyl alcohol USP, as well as a gelling ingredient. Because of our formulation, our hand sanitizer has a better, smoother, and nicer consistency than many other hand sanitizers. Simple is best, so our gel hand sanitizer does not contain any synthetic fragrance or coloration. Our scented version is formulated with a nice, soothing, organic lavender essential oil.

Demand

With hand sanitizer being in short supply, it is is very needed right now. The great thing is that we at Willowdale Botanicals are equipped to make it! It’s outside our wheelhouse of natural, botanical beauty, yet with the current crisis our goal is to make it possible for our customers to find high quality products at at reasonable prices.

Your purchase supports our ongoing donations of sanitizer to health care workers and low-paid workers in public-facing jobs in our local community, and we thank you. Please stay safe!

Limit 2 until April 20.

Uses

Apply liberally, rub well into the hands and allow to dry without wiping off. Repeat as needed when in contact with potentially contaminated surfaces. While thoroughly washing your hands with soap and water remains the best protection, 70% isopropyl alcohol hand sanitizer if used properly can help protect you from spreading contaminants that you touch.

Tips

We recommend to use after:
– Pumping gas
– Using public restrooms
– Going to the grocery store
– Touching public doors and handles
– When washing your hands isn’t an option
– After exposure to any potentially contaminated surfaces

With the increase of washing your hands, we know how your skin may be a bit more irritated, so we highly recommend you use our Heal & Seal on chapped and irritated skin. Check it out here.

Note

We are giving bottles of this product for free to nurses at several local hospitals because they are working tirelessly to help our communities. We love them for their efforts. Your purchase supports them, and we thank you for making your purchase through us!

Our gel hand sanitizer effectiveness is greatly reduced when your hands are dirty.

What is propylene glycol?
An alcohol compound used as a food additive and an emollient skin conditioner. Generally recognized as safe by the FDA for ingestion and inhalation. We use it in our hand sanitizer because it provides skin conditioning and protection while also being stable in the 70% alcohol gel.  It is not polyethylene glycol (PEG), and doesn’t share any of the safety concerns people have about PEG.

What is polyacrylate crosspolymer-6?
It’s a gentle, skinsafe polymer used to form a gel when used in high concentrations of alcohol. Developed specifically for use in skincare products. It helps form a protective barrier on the skin. Since it is biodegradable is not considered a microplastic according to the definition of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
