Prefense Hand Sanitizer: Review and GIVEAWAY!

I was recently given the opportunity to try and review Prefense, a silica based and alcohol free hand sanitizer. I was interested in trying this product because I have heard horrible stories about children dying after using alcohol-based hand sanitizer and then licking (ewwww!?!?) their hands. From what I've heard, Canada has banned alcohol-based hand sanitizer in schools for this reason. So I was excited to discover a safer option for those times when getting to a sink and using soap and water just isn't convenient or possible.

I received a 1.5 ounce bottle of Prefense, which is the perfect size to toss in a purse or diaper bag. It says on the bottle that it contains 120 sprays, but actually it is a pump bottle, not a spray bottle. It comes out kind of like a foaming hand soap. Also, it is labeled as having a fresh citrus scent, and it is a very light scent, not over powering in the least. Prefense absorbs quickly and neatly. There is no sticky residual feeling. Best of all, I feel safe letting my kids use it.

Here are some facts you should know about Prefense:
  • 1 application protects through 10 hand washings without reapplication
  • Prefense is effective for 24+ hours
  • Prefense is safe for adults and children - non-toxic and alcohol-free!
  • The water based silica complex moisturizes hands
  • Since only 1 dose is needed each day, Prefense costs only 6 cents per day 
  • Sanitizes skin and nails on contact
  • Adheres to skin, forming a proactive antibacterial barrier, wet or dry
  • Tested against strains of Staphyloccoccus aureus, including drug resistant MRSA strains
  • Stops skin to skin transfer of germs
  • Regular application provides continual antibacterial protection
  • Prefense is colorless and will not stain skin or clothing
  • Non-flammable
For more information, you can find Prefense on Facebook, and on Twitter. To purchase Prefense at a discounted rate (compared to other retailers), please visit their website, or Amazon.

Now here is the fun part. Prefense is giving away a big 8 ounce bottle of hand sanitizer to one lucky MichiGal reader! That's enough hand sanitizer to last a single user almost 2 years!
