Lavender essential oil, organic alcohol supply green ingredients for healthy hands
San Francisco (September 29, 2006) – EO (www.eoproducts.com), the artisan body care products manufacturer specializing in plant-based bath and body care, proudly introduces organic Hand Sanitizer and Sanitizing Hand Wipes – two new additions to its best-selling essential oil-based line of therapeutic hand care products.
Ideal for cleaning and disinfecting hands when soap and water are not available, EO Hand Sanitizer and Sanitizing Hand Wipes are the organic, plant-based alternative to chemical laden hand sanitizers.
“We are inspired by what nature provides for us,” says Susan Griffin-Black, Co-CEO and Co-founder of EO. “Our products aren’t merely effective; they also have relaxing aroma-therapeutic properties.”
Unlike its mass-market competitors, which use factory-formulated chemicals to simulate natural smells, EO sanitizer features organic lavender essential oil, which is naturally soothing and calming to both the skin and the senses and has a pleasant, natural aroma. Organic alcohol, which is made from 100% non-Genetically Modified (GMO) corn and made without the use of any harsh chemical denaturants, effectively kills germs and sanitizes on contact. Soothing aloe vera is added to nourish and moisturize the skin. The Sanitizing Hand Wipes are made with a 100% biodegradable wood pulp towelette.
EO Hand Sanitizer is available in distinctive 2 oz and 8 oz bottles, with suggested retail prices starting at $3.99. EO Sanitizing Hand Wipes come in individually sealed packets, and retail around $0.79 each. EO products are available across the United States at Whole Foods, Wild Oats, natural food and specialty stores nationwide, and online at www.eoproducts.com.
