Sanitise On-The-Go With Dr. Bronner’s Hand Hygiene Sprays Heading Into Winter!
Dr. Bronner’s Offers 10% OFF Organic Hand Hygiene Sprays During October
DUBLIN, IRELAND – Dr. Bronner’s, the family-owned organic and fair trade soap and personal care brand, is promoting its Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Hygiene Spray, for ethical cleansing on-the-go. Certified organic and fair trade, the active ingredient, ethyl alcohol, is 99.9% effective against germs while organic glycerin is added to the hand spray, rather than synthetic petrochemical thickeners, to naturally draw moisture into the skin and yield a smooth after-feel that is not sticky or drying. Dr. Bronner’s uses organic essential oils to create the Organic Hand Hygiene Spray in two fresh herbal scents, Lavender and Peppermint.
During October, Dr. Bronner’s will be offering customers 10% OFF Organic Hand Hygiene Sprays through its website: www.drbronner.ie.
“The soothing Lavender aroma calms as it cleans, while the uplifting Peppermint scent stimulates the senses and focuses the mind,” says Michael Bronner, President of Dr. Bronner’s and grandson of company founder Emanuel Bronner. “Our simple formula contains none of the harsh chemicals you find in conventional sanitisers, but it is just as effective. Our Organic Hand Hygiene Spray is safe and perfect as hygiene-to-go, for your family’s sticky hands and faces, and even as an air freshener or deodorant.”
Excellent for use while out running errands or traveling, Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Hygiene Spray can be used to safely clean surfaces in public bathrooms, classrooms, on buses, trains, and airplanes. Packaged in 60ml 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles that produce 500 sprays, it can even be used to freshen gym shoes and clothes.
“Our Organic Hand Hygiene Spray cleans effectively with only four responsibly-sourced ingredients: organic ethyl alcohol, water, organic essential oil, and organic glycerin,” says Paul Irwin, Managing Director of Dr. Bronner’s Ireland, “By using certified fair trade and certified organic plant-based ingredients, Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Hygiene Spray provides consumers the safest options to meet their hygienic needs, all while building and lifting up the rural communities at the beginning of our supply chains who grow with regenerative practices to help mitigate climate change.”
Dr. Bronner’s sources all of its major raw materials for its products from certified organic and fair trade projects around the world, supporting thousands of smallholder farmers, including the sourcing of palm oil from Ghana, coconut oil from Sri Lanka, and olive oil from Palestine and Israel. The fair trade and organic peppermint oil used in Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint products, including Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand Hygiene Spray, is grown in India using regenerative organic farming practices—which help restore soil health and sequester atmospheric carbon.
The Dr. Bronner’s range is stocked in health stores and selected pharmacies nationwide and can also be purchased online at: www.drbronner.ie.
