Intelligent Nutrients Certified Organic Hand Sanitizer- REVIEW

I realize that a hand sanitizer is hardly a sexy product to talk about, but as the flu season quickly approaches it seems like a good topic of conversation. This seems particularly true for all of us who proudly forge on like warrior princesses to our nearest makeup counters to swatch new collections that have been swatched by countless others with their germy little flu fingers. There is also the entire issue of hand sanitizer overuse and resistant strains of bacteria, and what we seem to have is the perfect storm for the next bug that comes around.

Certified Organic Hand Sanitizer comes in a convenient spray bottle that is easily transported, but one of the things that I really love about this product is that it isn't sticky or unpleasant. It also smells very nice- making it pleasant to use.

According to Intelligent Nutrients, "Get clean without the overkill. This leaves hands clean and feeling that way-not sticky or stripped but soft and hydrated with 99.9% of bacteria eradicated. Chemical-free. It is a safe, effective alternative to preventing the spread of germs and impurities." The idea that his product can destroy 99.99% of the bad bacteria without doing any harm is music to my ears. They also claim that with their products "you do not have to worry about the chemical anti-anythings that result in new, resistant strains of bacteria showing up on your hands."

  1. Sounds like a great product. Hand sanitizer is really a must have product even when it is not the flu season, yet.

    1. I absolutely agree with you, Miss L!! I really like this one a great deal! It's a little more expensive than most, but it works so well, and is filled with healthy organic ingredients!

  2. I don't believe in hand sanitizers unless I'm outdoors without running water or trapped in the subway with very grimy looking people, lol. But this one sounds like a step up from the others!

    1. This is the only one that I have actually thought enough about to actually like!! It's really nice and effective. definitely a good product on a subway-- LOL!

  3. I always have a hand sanitizers in my bag, I'm a bit of a germophobe and also its handy to have one near by when I am out with my little boy. This one sounds really good as I often find the standard ones drying and a bit sticky. Thanks forthe great review Lola xx

    1. Well, there's good reason to be- especially with a young child in the family!! I like that this one isn't drying, and that it's in a spray bottle-- making it more convenient and less messy that those typical squeeze bottle gel formulas that contain so much alcohol, and often dry a bit sticky. My hands end up so dried out from those. It would be worth taking a look at. <3 xx
