The Purist Antibacterial Dry Hand Wash from Tammy Fender ($14) – Combining 11 essential plant-based germ fighters, this 100% purely botanical, on-the-go antibacterial hand sanitizer purifies and protects your hands without drying the skin. With a highly potent combination of Echinacea, Goldenseal, Tea Tree and Thyme, it cleanses naturally and eliminates impurities to ward off infections.
Pangea Organics Hand Soap ($14) – This luxurious foaming hand soap is simply divine! Comprised of a nourishing blend of organic saponified vegetal oils, organic botanical extracts and essential oils, this anti-bacterial soap provides a rich lather but without any harsh detergents and is also free of synthetic dyes or fragrances or harsh antibacterials.
This is the most gentle and moisturizing hand soap I’ve tried and it’s good to know that it biodegrades after 48 hours of washing down the drain. Available in 3 invigorating scents : Canadian Pine with White Sage, Italian White Sage with Geranium & Yarrow and Pyreness Lavender with Cardamom.
EO Hand Sanitizers ($2.99) – EO’s new Everyone Hand Sanitizers are a natural, plant-based alternative with pure essential oils that clean your hands and refresh your senses.

They come in 2 oz. spray or gel bottles in two refreshing scents - Peppermint + Citrus and Coconut + Lemon. Free of any parabens, triclosan, artificial fragrances and other harsh chemicals, they are ideal for everyone in your family…. even safe for babies!
