Washing your hands with soap and water — for at least 20 seconds — is the best way to guard against coronavirus, but as parents know, that’s not always a convenient option. It’s smart to keep hand sanitizer as a back-up option to effectively combat germs and keep your child’s hands clean. Hand sanitizers are currently hard to come by, especially those with baby-safe formulas, but we found one that’s made by one of our favorite baby brands.
Babyganics Fragrance-Free Alcohol-Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer is currently in stock at BuyBuyBaby — although it probably won’t be for long. It comes in a large, 8.45oz. bottle with a convenient hand pump. The foaming hand sanitizer is safe for the entire family as it’s fragrance-free, non-allergenic, and formulated without alcohol.
While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends using a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol, alcohol-based formulas can be risky for kids too young to keep their hands out of their mouths. Babyganics Foaming Hand Sanitizer contains Benzalkonium Chloride, instead. It’s a baby-safe alternative that the Food and Drug Administration deems eligible “for use in the formulation of healthcare personnel hand rubs.”
The hand sanitizer has a near-perfect rating, with shoppers claiming it’s gentle and moisturizing on their skin. “I have eczema flare-ups and needed a sanitizer that wouldn’t sting,” one five-star reviewer explained “This is super easy to use and doesn’t irritate my skin. We have one in every room!”.
Parents also love the product for its safe but effective formula. One happy shopper expressed not just their love of the brand, but also their kids’ matching sentiments. “I’m often on the go with my two girls and like to carry antibacterial hand gel with me. Too often, they don’t want to use whatever I have due to the scent or that it burns. They love the Babyganics! Its fluffy foam is fun, the scent is light, and it doesn’t burn cuts.”
Babyganics Fragrance-Free Alcohol-Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer is reasonably priced at $5.99 per bottle, with a two-bottle minimum per customer. We will be sure to stock up on it ourselves before it sells out!
