What Are Organic Hand Sanitisers?
There has been an ever-increasing trend in recent decades to move to organic products. At its heart, the move to organic is a shift to natural products and avoidance where possible of man-made synthetic products.
Most hand sanitisers are man-made and synthetic, we are sometimes asked “Can hand sanitisers be organic?” We explore the availability of organic hand sanitisers and natural hand sanitisers in our latest article.
What does organic mean?
Just to set the record straight it is important to define what organic means before we can answer “Can hand sanitisers be organic?” According to Dictionary.com, a definition is:
“Noting or pertaining to a class of chemical compounds that formerly comprised only those existing in or derived from plants or animals, but that now includes all other compounds of carbon.”
Are organic products the same as all-natural products?
In theory, the terms “organic” and “all-natural” should be one and the same thing. An organic product is certainly natural, but the difference lies in regulation.
Organic products are tightly regulated in the UK, read the UK Government’s Organic food: labelling and advertising rules.
