Like most people. I don't always think about what is in everyday products that I use. However, I have become much more aware of product ingredients since Mason was born. Even though I would love to, unfortunately, I cannot always afford to buy organic. But, when it comes to the safety of my child, I will put out the extra money to keep him healthy and safe no matter what. So, I do try to make small changes here and there. I buy organic sunscreens, shampoos, snacks, etc. Since I buy these things occasionally, I can afford to put out the extra couple of dollars.
Now, we are officially into cold and flu season. With the holidays over, we have all been exposed to many people with colds and worse. Sniffles and coughs are sure to follow. Naturally, teaching Mason to wash his hands is very important, especially at this time of the year. Sometimes, it is not feasible to use soap and water to wash, so we turn to hand sanitizers. Recently I checked the active ingredients of the hand sanitizer I usually use. Guess what...the active ingredient was 62% Ethyl Alcohol. Just what I want, to put Ethyl Alcohol all over my child's hands then let him run off to eat a snack where his hands will inevitably wind up in his mouth. I kept thinking how so many common household products contain ingredients that are unnecessary and unsafe. I though...there has got to be something better. And, here is where a small change can make a big difference.
BabyGanics "The Germinator" Alcohol Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer effectively kills 99.9% of germs without the harsh side effects of alcohol and other synthetic chemicals. It instead utilizes benzalkonium chloride, a naturally safe and effective substance which makes The Germinator not only fast acting, but allows for use without water or towels, its non-flammable, will not stain your clothing, and definitely won’t dry out your skin. In fact, this non-toxic formula actually moisturizes as it cleans and is of course the best choice for even the tiniest fingers and hands. BabyGanics "The Germinator" Alcohol Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer is available in a fresh tangerine scent as well as a fragrance free variety and retails for $6.99 (250ml).
Mason loves this foaming hand sanitizer. It is not nearly as messy as the gels that, in my experience, inevitably slide off his hand or down his arm before he gets a chance to rub his hands together. Here is a product that you can feel good about using without breaking the bank. PERFECT! $6.99 is an awesome price for this product! Not only can you feel good about having your child use a safe, alcohol free hand sanitizer, you will feel good knowing that you got the most for your money.
This product can be purchased online at www.babyganics.com and nationwide at all Babies R Us, Bed Bath & Beyond and Buy Buy Baby locations. I will be adding more BabyGanics products to our everyday, including The Cleaner Upper Toy & Highchair Cleaner - 17oz, which retails for $4.99 and Foamin' Fun Soothing Formula Body Wash & Shampoo, Lavender - 10.65oz, which retails for $5.99.
