Where Can You Get the Best Hand Sanitizer?

Updated: Apr 15, 2021

There are a lot of hand sanitizers on the market. Many are riddled with synthetic fragrance and other ingredients that are known to cause hormonal issues and irritate allergies. And how do you know you're actually killing the germs? Let's get the best solution into your hands.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), keeping your hands clean is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of disease, so using an effective product like Thieves Waterless Hand Sanitizer can have a real impact on health. What an important, but easy-to-use tool for you to carry in your purse, diaper bag, glove box, backpack, or even your pocket!

As part of our Seed to Seal® quality commitment, we’re dedicated to providing the very best products. Thieve's Hand Sanitizer has a few distinct advantages over many hand sanitizers on the market:


Our sanitizer contains aloe, which helps prevent your skin from drying out. Many other hand sanitizers on the market can dry your hands from the alcohol used as the active ingredient. If used too frequently, they can dry your hands to the point where your skin can crack…and cracked skin provides openings that can actually facilitate infections. Thieve's Waterless Hand Sanitizer helps prevent this skin cracking with the moisturizing properties of aloe, so you can sanitize your skin without worrying about damaging it.


Free from synthetic fragrances, parabens, phthalates, and tons of other hidden chemicals with dangerous side effects. Many products on the market contain ingredients that are known to weaken the immune system, cause hormone disruption, and irritate allergies. You can feel confident that it's safe for the tiny hands in your family, too.


Kills 99.9% of germs + bacteria on contact, sanitizing your hands fast.

The CDC also recommends that the hand sanitizer you use have 60% alcohol or more for it to be most effective. A lot of conventional hand sanitizers don’t have that much + they have all those other toxic ingredients. Thieves Waterless Hand Sanitizer? 65% alcohol.

You may be reading more and more about the ingredients in your products and learning that "alcohol denat" can be considered toxic and not good for our skin. Here's the thing: most companies derive their alcohol denat from petroleum, which is not natural and is toxic to our bodies. In Young Living's case, the "alcohol denat" is actually derived from the Peppermint and Thieves essential oils with natural methyl / ethyl bonds for a natural, safe, and effective alcohol denat.

Because of our Seed to Seal standard, we can trust that each of our oils are chemically sound...that each has all the perfect chemical compounds and bonds needed for it to be 100% pure as it was within the plant. This is why Young Living oils can be used to create a safe and natural solution (like alcohol denat) instead of a man-made toxic alcohol denat with fake chemical bonds that our bodies don't like. Per FDA requirements, we list the chemical structure for what an ingredient is called, which is the same whether dervived naturally or a synthetic creation in a's just that one is better used by and healthier for the body because it's natural.

This one is a winner - hands down!
