I find myself often thinking about the changes people, including myself, have made as a result of the COVID pandemic. It’s not like I wasn’t washing my hands prior to this, or sanitizing things around our home (light switches, remotes, door knobs…), but it’s to the extent I do it these days, as well as other changes I’ve made.
I follow the CDC guidelines when I’m out and about, as well as when I am at home (I don’t wear a mask at home or keep six feet apart, but I do everything else when I am at home).
I have a supply of disinfecting products, including an abundance of hand sanitizers.
I hate how some hand sanitizers smell strongly of chemicals and alcohol. I’m not saying that I expect hand sanitizer to smell like “sunshine and rainbows,” but I would like it to smell less like a toxic chemical.
Have you read the ingredients on some of the hand sanitizers available on the market? Sheesh! It’s filled with harsh chemicals, which is why your skin tends to dry out a lot.
There is an option in a hand hygiene solution that’s simply better in more ways than one. It’s called Elyptol.
Elyptol harnesses the healing properties of eucalyptus oil and naturally-sourced pure ethanol to bring you a product that sanitizes in a healthy and eco-friendly way. Despite its gentle feel, make no mistake that this hand sanitizer is FDA listed and hospital grade.
Elyptol kills germs naturally. In addition;
- Kills 99.99% of germs with 70% alcohol
- Contains eucalyptus oil and pure ethanol derived from sugar cane to eliminate germs gently and safely
- Uses botanical food grade ethanol and eucalyptus ingredients known for soothing and healing aching bones and irritated skin
- Antimicrobial (not just antibacterial) to kill a wider range of germs
- The first Type 1 eco-certified and professionally registered hand sanitizer
The brand makers several multi-use cleaning essentials including hand wipes, surface wipes and of course, hand sanitizers.
Elyptol recently launched in Target stores nationwide. Their wipes are especially popular. That is because their hard surface wipes effectively clean stoves, toilets, countertops, desks, and bathtubs
“With the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a shortage of cleaning wipes on the market,” said Tim O’Connor, CEO. “Our wipes get the job done both for home and healthcare needs. As we enter the flu and cold season, this becomes increasingly important. The soft texture and eucalyptus scent are pleasing on hands and effective on surfaces.”
The overwhelming surge in demand for cleaning wipes due to the pandemic has resulted in empty store shelves across the U.S. and a call by retailers for manufacturers to increase their productions to meet consumer and professional needs. Elyptol is one of the companies that has moved forward into new markets, such as Target, to meet the requests of a significant population of users.
I was sent some products from Elyptol to try out for myself. I received an assortment of hand sanitizers and a package of wipes.
I cannot comment on whether or not the wipes and hand sanitizers kill germs and other things that they claim. What I can tell you is that there is no noxious smell from these products. They don’t have much of a scent at all, thankfully.
To me, these feel a lot less harsh on the skin. Your hands don’t burn like they do with some hand sanitizes. I haven’t accidently got this product on an open cut, so I don’t know how that would feel (if you’ve ever had hand sanitizer get into a cut it burns like crazy!).
I like what these are made of. I can pronounce the ingredients, so that is a good thing.
These ingredients are better for us, and the environment. You don’t need harsh, toxic chemicals to kill germs. I wish more companies realized that.
The company is donating a portion from every purchase of its hand sanitizer gels to the conservation organization that is helping koalas and other Australian wildlife. That is AMAZING! I am thrilled to support any company that is doing their part to help Earth’s creatures.
The brand partnered with with WildArk, a conservation partner in Australia, to focus on protecting the habitat of Australia’s native wildlife including koalas.
Elyptol will donate $5 from every purchase of two 16 ounce antimicrobial hand sanitizer gels, specially priced at $19.99, to the nonprofit. Consumers are asked to use the promo code SAVEUS upon time of purchase off of its website: www.elyptol.com.
“We were all devastated by the news of the wildfire’s destruction of the beautiful and sacred Australian habitat,” said Tim O’Connor, President & CEO. “Elyptol wanted to put its efforts towards helping out any way we could. Our partnership with Wildark is making it possible for us to do just that, with an organization that is at the forefront of ecological change and conservation, particularly with the adorable koala population that was so threatened.”
