The key ingredients for amazing antibacterial solutions that won’t dry out your skin.
What makes a good antibacterial self-care product?
Even before COVID elevated the importance of antibacterial measures and products, antibacterial hand sanitizers, soaps, and lotions were popular personal hygiene products because they are effective in killing most germs and bacteria. The key ingredient in most antibacterial healthcare products like hand sanitizer is isopropyl alcohol – it’s the active ingredient that kills the bacteria and two specific kinds of alcohol are recognized by health experts to be most effective at eliminating germs.
The CDC recommends hand sanitizers with at least 60% ethanol and 70% isopropanol (the two types of alcohol and active ingredients in alcohol-based hand sanitizers) to kill many types of bacteria and reduce the spread of viral pathogens. Now many health products for personal use contain antibacterial compounds including alcohol. Medical experts have emphasized the importance of personal hygiene and antibacterial personal care products to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses. The health and beauty industries have responded by creating antibacterial versions of many different products. However antibacterial ingredients like alcohol can dehydrate your skin and strip away one of its most important components – moisture.
Antibacterial, Hemp & Your Skin
While alcohol is effective at killing many types of germs, it’s also hard on your skin. Alcohol is a desiccant, meaning after it evaporates from your skin it can strip away moisture and dry it out. Frequent use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers and other bacterial products can dry out the skin. To counteract the drying effects of alcohol, some over-the-counter hand sanitizers add artificial moisturizers to replenish some of the lost moisture that the alcohol strips away. Artificial moisturizers are not necessarily harmful, but they are also not natural, they are synthetic chemicals. Hemp Antibacterial products instead add a unique ingredient to antibacterial sanitizers – hemp seed oil.
You may not know that some antibacterial sanitizers are made from hemp seed oil, the basic ingredient in all hemp skincare products. Pure hemp seed oil is a botanical, or plant-based oil extracted from the seed of the hemp plant, a plant known for its therapeutic properties for the skin. The artificial moisturizers found in antibacterial sanitizer lotions do not contain the unique mixture of plant-based compounds that hemp seed oil does.
Hemp seed oil contains many skin-nourishing ingredients and natural moisturizers that work to protect your skin and restore the moisture that alcohol strips away. Also, hemp seed oil does not dilute the alcohol’s ability to kill bacteria and germs.
When it comes to hemp antibacterial products versus regular over-the-counter antibacterial products, it all comes down to alcohol and moisturizers. All antibacterial have germ-killing alcohol, but regular antibacterial products contain artificial moisturizers or none at all. Only hemp antibacterial solutions contain hemp seed oil – a rich, moisturizing, botanical oil that comes from a plant, not synthesized in a lab. Antibacterial self-care and personal hygiene products made from hemp oil replenish moisture, restore health and infuse your skin with essential vitamins, omegas, and other beneficial compounds.
