Prefense Botanicals

It is no secret that I am a germaphobe after having a daughter with severe asthma. I almost feel sorry for how often I make my children wash their hands and use hand sanitizer because their little hands get so dry, irritated and even cracked from the alcohol. Problem solved with Prefense Botanicals because it is 100% alcohol free and is a patented formula that “adheres to skin forming a proactive antibacterial barrier, wet or dry and offers protection from germs for up to 10 hand washings without reapplication.” I had to read that part in the pamphlet several times because it was so different from any hand sanitizing product that we have ever used in the past. It made with a Silica based complex with organic botanicals so that my children don’t have to cry over their red and chapped hands anymore.

I was very impressed that Prefense kills all strains of Staphylococcus, including MRSA. We had a MRSA scare the last time my daughter was hospitalized and thankfully she was not infected. I worked in healthcare for 14 years and know how deadly antibiotic resistant MRSA can be, especially for a fragile immune system. It also protects against Strep, E. coli and many more.

Prefense was very easy to carry in my handbag and I liked the easy application. I am so excited that it works for hours and continues to protect even through hand washings. Prefense did not cause any irritation and to be honest it took at least two days before I got used to not applying it as often as “other” hand sanitizers…but still no redness or dry skin. I also appreciated that a 1.5 ounce bottle of Prefense last through 120 applications. That is a cost of only .08 cents per day!
