Is Jao Hand Refresher made with safe ingredients? How does it work?
Jao's Hand Refresher is made with 65% Natural Ethyl Alcohol from grapes NOT Synthetic Alcohol! i.e Ethanol (gasoline). Natural ethyl alcohol kills germs safely with no bacteriostats that weaken over time and can grow resistant germs. Alcohol kills germs by drying out their cell wall. Jao does not use Benzalkonium Chloride or Triclosan which are bad for humans and the environment, and are known marine pollutants!
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 it has Chamomile, Calendula, Lavender, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Geranium and Sage in Jao's boutique blend.
