Age of sanitizers

Though we’re craving for the lockdown to blow over, probably, ever more than for the warm and sunny days to push off all these puddles, rains and piercing winds, there is a couple of “cocoon” habits we’ll keep for long after the pandemic announced over, if not forever. Working from home, food supplements to maintain better condition, and, of course, keen hand and generally every surface washing and sanitizing have already rooted deeply in people’s mindset.

 

Just as lots of us got used to cleansing hands every time my touch anything, get in out of stores or public transport, popped up the issue of whether this sanitizer addiction is actually safe. Keeping off the germs and bacteria costs us dried skin derived from its natural barrier. Luckily, there are more and more sanitizers, that contain natural moisturizing ingredients, or made free from alcohol with actives based on colloidal silver, alum stone or anti-infective essential oils.

Good examples of anti-bacterial gels of sprays to offer your customers:

Aloe vera is a basic germ-killing and moisturizing substance familiar to everyone. Adding 20 ml of Aloe vera to 100 ml of alcohol makes the simplest anti-bacterial fluid. But that’s nothing interesting anymore.

 

Anti-bacterial spray - examples

 

Here are some ideas on how to make sanitizers, that no one would resist adding to cart.

Anti-bacterial spray:

  • 150 ml alcohol,
  • 10 drops of lavender oil,
  • 30 drops of Tea Tree oil,

Mix the ingredients and pour into a bottle.

  • 100 ml alcohol,
  • 10 ml water,
  • 5 ml glycerin,
  • 10 ml lemon juice.

Mix the ingredients and pour into a bottle. 

  • 200 ml alcohol
  • 125 ml water
  • 4 ml glycerin 
  • Several drops of gum tree oil.

Mix the ingredients and pour into a bottle.

Spray packaging is the best way to evenly spread moderate amounts of the liquid over larger surface. The only thing to care about is keeping the mist away from eyes and nose to avoid potential breathing the alcohol in.

Hand cremes – strong moisturizing and regeneration

Good quality hand sanitizers are not always available, so moisturizing and regenerating hand cremes are the #2 must-have for everyday healthcare. For these products ingredients that restore dehydrated, cracked palm skin and at the same time provide anti-microbial action, are advised. This could be colloidal silver, cream zinc, sweet almond oil, shea butter, or Ginkgo Biloba.
