Vinessa an online customer had this to say about their Hand Sanitizer “I work at a hospital and the hand sanitizers wreak havoc on our hands. But as I and my coworkers tried this product we were immediately impressed. It’s much gentler and has an awesome aroma of eucalyptus that also soothes the senses.”
