Dr. Bronner’s Fair Trade & Organic Lavender Hand Sanitizer

VISTA, CA – Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Organic Hand Sanitizer quickly kills bacteria on hands when soap and water are unavailable, and leaves behind a lovely lavender scent. The active ingredient, ethyl alcohol, is certified Organic and Fair Trade, and thus never derived from genetically modified organisms. Organic glycerin, which naturally draws moisture into the skin, is added to the hand spray rather than synthetic petrochemical thickeners, and this leaves a smooth after-feel that is not sticky or drying.

Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Organic Hand Sanitizer is available in 2 oz., 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles that provide over 500 sprays. It also works well as a deodorizer: simply spray into the air and enjoy the wonderful lavender aroma.

INGREDIENTS:
Organic Fair Trade Ethyl Alcohol (62%)*, Water, Organic Glycerin, Organic Lavender Oil

(*Certified Fair Trade by IMO.)

Fair Trade
Since 2008 Dr. Bronner’s has been certified Fair Trade for all major raw materials (representing over 95% of annual agricultural volume) by the respected Swiss Certifier IMO. Shifting supply chains to use certified Fair Trade ingredients makes a big difference in the lives of several thousand farmers and workers — and is money well spent. Along with their families and communities, farmers and workers benefit from fair prices, living wages and funding for local development projects.
