Thank you Dr. Michael Buch!
Pssst …I’ve been keeping a secret and now I can let you in on it. It’s about our Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier. We’ve been checking the Over-The-Counter (OTC) monographs and we are able to officially call our product a hand SANITIZER.
We are currently working on changing the labels, but you are all officially permitted to talk about this product as a “sanitizer” even if the old label is still on the bottle. Why is this important? Because in the US, the FDA will allow us to say that our Thieves Waterless Hand Sanitizer kills 99.99% of germs on contact. This is an important new claim for us. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), keeping your hands clean is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of disease, so using an effective hand sanitizer like Thieves Waterless Hand Sanitizer can have a real impact on health.
Our product has a distinct advantage over many hand sanitizers on the market. The advantage is aloe, which helps prevent your skin from drying out. Many other hand sanitizers on the market can dry your hands from the alcohol used as the active ingredient. If used too frequently, they can dry your hands to the point where your skin can crack …and cracked skin provides openings that can actually facilitate infections. Our product helps prevent this skin cracking with the moisturizing properties of aloe, so you can sanitize your skin without worrying about damaging it. Plus, as you probably know already, Thieves Waterless Hand Sanitizer smells great, is non-sticky, and is easy to use. This one is a winner …hands down!
