Embracing the Power of Alcohol, with Skin-Friendly Hand Sanitiser

"Alcohol-free" is the latest buzz-word or term in the health and wellbeing community. You see it on product packaging as a selling-point, a bonus for consumers which is meant to say "I'm good for you" and in some cases that may well be the case. It's common for manufacturers to label their products as "alcohol-free" to ease consumer fears, but did you know that alcohol can actually be a very effective ingredient in hygiene products, hand sanitisers in particular? We've all become more conscious about cleanliness and the role it plays in preventing the spread of diseases. Hand sanitisers have emerged as an essential tool in this battle, but avoidance of alcohol-containing sanitisers is, due to their potential harsh effects on the skin. At Palmtree Hygiene, we've taken a unique approach, by combining the efficacy of alcohol with a skin-friendly solution; ethanol derived from the sap of palm trees. In this post, we explore the benefits of our innovative formulation and why it's time to embrace the power of alcohol while keeping your skin healthy.

  1. Debunking the Myths: Many people shy away from alcohol-based hand sanitisers due to the misconception that they are always harsh and damaging to the skin. While excessive and prolonged use of alcohol can lead to dryness, irritation, and compromised skin barrier function, it's essential to separate fact from fiction. In reality, alcohol-based hand sanitisers are highly effective in killing a broad spectrum of pathogens, and at deactivating viruses. It's crucial to strike a balance between maintaining hand hygiene and ensuring skin health.

  2. The Palmtree Solution: We understand the concerns of individuals seeking skin-friendly options without compromising on effectiveness. We have pioneered a breakthrough in hand sanitiser formulation by deriving the ethanol used in our products from the sap of palm trees. Palm-based ethanol provides an excellent alternative to traditional ethanol sources, such as grains, corn or sugarcane, and offers unique benefits for the skin.

  3. Skin-Friendly Ethanol: The ethanol we derive from the sap of palm trees possesses inherent qualities that are gentle and kind to the skin. Palm sap-based ethanol contains natural moisturising properties that help to counteract the drying effects often associated with alcohol-based sanitisers. By harnessing this natural moisturising ability, we've created a product that not only kills germs effectively but also leaves your skin feeling soft, supple, and nourished.

  4. Sustainability and Environmental Considerations: Our choice of palm tree sap as a source of ethanol isn't just about skin health but also highlights our commitment to sustainability. The palm trees used in our production process are sustainably cultivated, ensuring minimal impact on the environment. By incorporating responsible sourcing practices, we contribute to the preservation of natural resources while producing a superior hand sanitiser.

  5. Meeting Consumer Needs: Understanding the diverse needs of our customers, we have developed a range of skin-friendly hand sanitisers that cater to various preferences and requirements. From travel-sized bottles for on-the-go use to larger dispensers for homes and businesses, our products make it convenient to maintain hand hygiene without compromising on skin health.

Conclusion: In the battle against germs and diseases, hand sanitisation plays a pivotal role. It's crucial to choose products that strike the right balance between effectiveness and skin health. By utilising palm sap-based ethanol, Palmtree Hygiene has created a skin-friendly hand sanitiser that effectively kills germs while nourishing your skin. We invite you to embrace the power of alcohol-based hygiene products and experience the difference for yourself. Together, we can prioritize health, sustainability, and well-being without compromising on efficacy or the environment.
