According to the CDC, cleaning hands is the #1 defense against the threatening flu…but be warned…not all hand sanitizing products are created equal! 


It’s the height of the flu season and the persistent H1Ni virus is projected to linger until May! Health experts keep reminding us how important it is to keep hands clean, but how you clean your hands, and what you clean them with,  plays a vital role in the prevention and spread of the flu.


While washing with soap and water is always the suggested first choice, Hand Sanitizers are the best defense when you can’t get to soap and water, and they’re actually more effective at eliminating germs because they kill bacteria rather than just removing it.


While alcohol-based hand sanitizers are tremendously effective in preventing the spread of bacterial-based diseases, they only kill the germs you have touched and once the alcohol dries they begin to recontaminate. Alcohol-free hand sanitizers that have benzalkonium chloride as their active ingredient continue to protect against microbial activity for 4 hours. And most impressive, studies have shown benzalkonium chloride may be associated with antibiotic resistance in the MRSA virus while no resistance to alcohol has ever been noted.


Introducing Mangiacotti’s Hand Sanitizer Spray one of the most extensively tested and leading alcohol-free hand sanitizer formulas available today.  Mangiacotti’s proprietary formula meets all FDA recommended testing protocols and features the active ingredient: Benzalkonium Chloride proven to kill 99.99% of germs on contact and used in hospitals for over 40 years to prepare the skin and surfaces for surgery. Mangiacotti Hand Sanitizer Spray works in 15 seconds to kill germs and bacteria leaving a protective anti-microbial shield that lasts 4 hours, while delivering skin softening moisturization.


Specially blended therapeutic essential oils delicately scent the antiseptic formula imparting a pleasant light fragrance. Unlike alcohol-based products, Mangiacotti’s Hand Sanitizer does not sting on contact, chap or dry hands, or strip away natural oils that help skin retain moisture but delivers super moisturization as it cleans and sanitizes even the most sensitive skin. And since it’s active ingredient is used on surfaces in operating rooms, Mangiacott’s Hand Sanitizer Spray may also be used on surfaces such as tray tables on airplanes and public toilet seats.


Available in six unique all-natural fragrance profiles: Jasmine Plum, Clementine, Lemon Verbena, Ocean, Lavender and Pomegranate.   The 0.5 fluid Oz. spray bottle is compact and great for travel and “on-the-go” germ prevention and features 100+ applications. Suggested use: One application after the first handwashing of the day and then again after lunch to help lock in the skin’s natural moisture and provides a hydrophobic barrier.

I love how easy these are to use and I love the fragrances! My favorites are the Jasmine Plum and the Lavender! These are just perfect to take on travel and I love to take them in my purse to work!
