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.
"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 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.
