The Not Just For Hands Sanitizer
Jao Refresher is made with alcohol.
Jao Refresher™ is an instant disinfectant and aromatherapy boost in one. Jao kills germs and freshens hands with Ethyl Alcohol (less drying) and our very own blend of antiseptic essential oils: Lavender, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Geranium and Sage.
Jao Refresher™ has 65% Ethyl Alcohol to kill germs safely with no Bacteriostats that weaken over time or grow resistant germs or are marine pollutants. We do not use Bezalkonium Chloride or Triclosan which are bad for humans and the environment.
Combined with natural cosmetic moisturizers, Jao Refresher™ will not dry out your hands. Plus we have all the goodies: Chamomile, Calendula, Lavender, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Geranium and Sage. This is why our boutique blend is more expensive and is the one and only not just for hands sanitizer.
Jao Refresher™ has many uses because the less you buy, the less you consume, the less you throw away, the less money you spend.

Is Jao Hand Refresher™ made with safe ingredients?
Our Hand Refresher is made with 65% Natural Ethyl Alcohol which kills germs safely using no bacteriostats that weaken over time and can grow resistant germs. Alcohol kills germs by drying out their cell wall. We do not use Benzalkonium Chloride or Triclosan which are bad for humans and the environment, and are known marine pollutants!
Does it actually work?
Jao Refresher™ was tested against seven of the most likely hand contaminants, specifically: Escherichia Coli, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Staphylococus Aureus, Klebsiella Pneumoniae, Candida Albicans, Salmonella Choleraseous and Streptococcus Pneumoniae. In all cases, the "kill rate" was less than one minute.
How does it work?
Glycerin and Glyceryl Polyacrylate are humectants. They begin with natural glycerine which is a byproduct of soap and is thickened with .2% mix of Amino Methyl Propanol and Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer which are safe and have to be used together to thicken the glycerine to become a much better moisturizer. D-Panthenol is a vitamin good for healing skin. Aloe is soothing. Methyl Glucose Ether Distearate is derived from corn sugar. It is an emollient to protect the skin from the drying effects of the alcohol. Plus we have Chamomile, Calendula, Lavender, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Geranium and Sage in our boutique blend.
Why hand sanitizer vs. anti-bacterial soap?
"FDA believes that there should be clearly demonstrated benefits to balance any potential risks. There currently is no evidence that over-the-counter antibacterial soap products are any more effective at preventing illness than washing with plain soap and water" - fda.gov
Jao couldn't agree more. This is why we do not use chemical antibacterial ingredients. Only alcohol and essential oils. Safe and effective. We have been aware of this problem for 15 years.
