Eco Travel Find: Stay Germ-Free with Jao Botanical Hand Cleaner
July 11, 2007
What: Your on-the-go botanical hand cleaner from Jao.
Why: As much as I love hand sanitizer while I’m on the road, I get a little bit weary about using too much of it. After all, anything that claims to kill 99 percent of germs probably has to take out some good stuff while it's at it. Jao, however, is an ‘upscale’ antibacterial sanitizer with an aromatic scent that hopes to change all that.
As a self-proclaimed botanical cleanser, Jao uses essential oils –- which are inherent antiseptics –- from lavender, tea tree and eucalyptus. Alcohol finishes off the germs, leaving your hands grub-free and smelling sweet.
