If you are looking for a hand sanitizer that is unlike any that you can buy at your local drug store, this is what you're looking for. No stinky odor, no dry hands.

About Frais Hand Sanitizer

Forget about what you think hand sanitizers should feel and smell like. I bet I speak for all of us when I say we all agree that the oily, wet mess that smells horrible is just something we have to deal with when we are unable to wash our hands with soap and water. But thanks to a new product on the market, Frais Hand Sanitizer, those days can be over for you.

Frais hand sanitizer relies on 66% sugarcane alcohol as well as natural plant oils to kill 99.9% of germs. You are getting the exact same protection as you would with the regular hand sanitizers, but using a blend of 8 natural essential oils: Ginger, Tangerine, Lemon Myrtle, Niaouli, Orange, Basil, Grapefruit and Cardamom. This hand sanitizer is a clear oil that dries quickly, has a pleasant smell and doesn't leave your hands with the usual dried out feeling you get after applying hand sanitizer.

Frais Hand Sanitizer comes in three sizes, 0.2 ounces sells for $3.50, 1.7 ounces for $7.00 and a large bottle for your desk has 15 ounces for $29. You can also get a box set of fourteen 0.2 ounce bottles for a discounted price of $33.

Frais is cruelty free, with no animal testing. They also contribute a portion of their profits from every bottle sold to Just a Drop Foundation. "Just a Drop supports water, sanitation and health projects around the world and also helps in disaster relief efforts when the most basic human need is clean water."

The Story Behind Frais Hand Sanitizer

The founders of Frais, Michael Davis-Smith and Robert Main took a vacation to Cambodia in 2006. Being forced to keep a supply of hand sanitizer with them at all times during their trip, the quickly realized that the hand sanitizers on the market are simply not pleasant. That's when the idea of creating a line of luxury hand sanitizers that included natural plant oils came to them. With a combination of expert chemists in the United States and essential oil experts in Australia, Frais was born.
