Hand sanitizers came on the market in 1966 as the “ideal” way to kill germs in a hurry. Society embraced hand sanitizers like it embraced sliced bread. Virtually every purse and diaper bag held a bottle of hand sanitizer.
Using hand sanitizer can become habitual. It feels empowering to kill germs all the time, right? We seem to be applying it constantly since it appears to be such a simple, quick action to take to protect yourself and your family. However, things are not always as they seem. So, we want to tell you why some hand sanitizers are not as safe as you think.
In many hand sanitizers, you will find an ingredient called triclosan. Triclosan is added to hand sanitizers to kill bacteria. While the benefits of triclosan have yet to be proven, it is known to be an endocrine disrupter. These chemicals can interfere with our endocrine (hormone) system. Any system in the body controlled by hormones can be derailed by hormone disruptors causing health issues.
Triclosan can also be found in products such as dish soap, toothpaste, and even clothes. It is very difficult to measure exposure, so we’re suggesting you take a close look at the ingredients you are applying to your skin frequently.
Now, let’s talk about using a product to sanitize your hands with safe ingredients … ingredients you can feel good about using every day. Ingredients that have antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic and antiviral properties to help eliminate bacteria. Without the bad stuff.
