Hand sanitizer is as good as gold lately. For months, it’s been in short supply; bought in bulk–even stockpiled and sold for as much as $459. With people finding only empty shelves and backorders in stores and online, many beauty brands, including Peter Thomas Roth, have launched their own hand sanitizer products to fulfill the market’s high demand.
Sustainable personal care brand Bathing Culture has also introduced a sanitizer: its High Spirits Waterless Hand Wash. Developed over the past seven weeks, the sanitizer–featuring the brand’s signature Cathedral Grove scent–is a non-sticky spray, hand-blended in California. Made with 72% USA-grown, non-GMO corn alcohol, its formula is more natural than ones sold by competitors, which often use petroleum-based isopropyl alcohol and synthetic additives. Gentle enough to be used on skin, it’s also strong enough to be used as a cleaning agent on surfaces.
For every purchase, $1 will be donated to DigDeep, a human rights non-profit that provides running water and sanitation services to Americans. High Spirits is available for sale on BathingCulture.com; $9 for 2 oz, $20 for 8 oz, and a gallon-size to be sold shortly.
