The first "upscale" antibacterial is an instant disinfectant and aromatherapy boost in one. Jao kills germs and freshens hands with ethyl alcohol (less drying) and our very own blend of antiseptic essential oils: Lavendar, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Geranium, and Sage. Some antibacterials use a synthetic bacteriostat called Triclosan which is a known marine pollutant and has become controversial for its ability to give rise to bacteria that can become resistant. Alcohol does the job and leaves no residue to foster microbial resistance. Combined with cosmetic moisturizers and the essential oils Jao will not dry out your hands. It'll feel like you just washed with an herbal lavendar soap.
