The Germinator Alcohol-Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer Review

Anytime I get the chance to review something natural , eco-friendly or kid-friendly I go for it!

I had the opportunity to review The Germinator Alcohol-Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer. What makes this so special? There is no alcohol, it’s a foam soap and it kills 99.9% of germs. It’s great for sensitive skin and has a moisturizer to keep hands soft. This is great for infants and toddlers because it is alcohol free.

As I get older and I guess being a mom, I get a little freaked out by all the germs out there. After a day shopping or a night out for dinner, I immediately reach for the sanitizer in the car and have the kids and I wipe down our hands.

How does it work? The Germinator Alcohol-Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer effectively kills 99.9% of germs without the harsh side effects of alcohol. This product utilizes benzalkonium chloride, which has a distinct advantage over gelled alcohol based hand sanitizers. While both product forms are fast acting and allow for use without water or towels, benzalkonium chloride based products are non-flammable, less drying to skin, and will not stain clothing.

I like the fact that if you or your child accidentally drink this or it gets in their eyes, it’s okay. I mean you have to drink lots of water to flush it out, but no rush to the ER.

So what did I think?

I really like that this is a foam. I do not like the gels as they get all runny on me and spill right off the kids hands. Savannah can use this herself, it’s easy to pump and the foam does not sting.

You can purchase this online at or and nationwide at Babies R Us, Bed Bath & Beyond, Buy Buy Baby and
