SANTA CRUZ, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Blume Organics today announced its exclusive Guide to Sanitizer Safety is available “Free” online (https://www.blumesorganics.com/blume-organics-guide-to-sanitizer-safety-dangerous-ingredients-to-avoid/. The Guide is a consumer resource with comprehensive information about the dangerous chemicals and artificial ingredients, currently in use in skin and hand sanitizers.
“Consumers deserve to know what is going on their hands and skin. This is especially true when you are applying a substance to your skin multiple times daily,” said Tom Harvey, Co-Founder Blume Organics. “Many of the chemicals and ingredients in sanitizers today are unnecessary, toxic and hazardous. Because they are unsafe for use, the Food and Drug Administration has been pulling sanitizer products from the market and citing specific companies for their products, i.e. (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/fda-toxic-hand-sanitizers-warning-five-new-brands/). At Blume we provide full label disclosure and believe that, if you wouldn’t put these ingredients in your food, you shouldn’t put them on your skin! Organics matter, to the planet and to us.
Blume’s Guide was written by Blume Organics Co-Founder and author of the critically-acclaimed book, Alcohol Can Be A Gas!, David Blume. The Guide identifies the most common toxic ingredients being sold today in commercial sanitizers, including: benzalkonium chloride, triclosan, glycerin made from petroleum, phthalates, denaturants, acetone and more. It describes the unhealthy effects these harsh chemical and petroleum-based ingredients have on our hands and skin.
“Unlike most commercial hand-sanitizer companies, Blume products feature only organic ethyl alcohol that we make from organic inputs. Alcohol is a proven antiseptic solution and kills germs and pathogens that we are in contact with daily,” Blume stated. “We handcraft our products at California Certified Organic Food (CCOF) Whiskey Hill Farms, in Watsonville CA. We use 75% organic ethyl alcohol in our skin and hand sanitizer products and 80% organic ethyl alcohol in our surface sanitizer and never use methanol or petro-chemicals in any of our products. 80% alcohol is what the World Health Organization have determined actually kills COVID-19. WHO’s recommendations, titled 'Guide to Local Production: WHO-recommended Handrub Formulations,' can be found at https://www.who.int/gpsc/5may/Guide_to_Local_Production.pdf and covers Alcohol (ethanol) (formulated to 80%, volume/volume) in an aqueous solution.”
