What does it smell like?
While we do not use any artificial fragrances, Lemyn Organics exudes a clean citrus aroma. We don't have to cover up any putrid, bottom-shelf tequila smell since we use USDA organic plant-based, USP grade alcohol. It's not the cheapest option, but it's the highest quality alcohol on the market.
What does USP Grade mean?
U.S. Pharmaceutical grade alcohol, meaning the alcohol in Lemyn Organics is made in accordance with the quality standards of the United States Pharmacopeia.
Why alcohol based?
The CDC recommends the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol to prevent the spread of germs, including COVID-19. Lemyn Organics is made up of 70% USDA organic plant-based, USP grade alcohol.
How does it feel on your hands?
Phenomenal! Lemyn Organics is fast-drying, never sticky & deeply hydrating, perfect for frequent use.
I have sensitive skin, will this irritate it?
Lemyn Organics has been clinically tested by dermatologists and found to be 100% sensitive skin safe, hypoallergenic and non-irritating.
We've found that people avoid using liquid sanitizer, since they end up wiping half of it on their pants anyways, deeming it ineffective. Likewise, spray sanitizers are often misused. Since a lot of the alcohol evaporates before the spray hits your hands, you need twice as much as you'd think to effectively sanitize your hands. Additionally, it can be dangerous to inhale sanitizer spray. Gel sanitizer is used properly more often. There's a reason all the sanitizer you'd heard of before 2020 were gel...
What does 99.9999% effective mean?
Basically, Lemyn Organics kills way more germs than the majority of other sanitizers on the market. An independent research lab confirmed the effectiveness of our sanitizer on 42 strains of illness-causing microorganisms. In every test, nearly all traces of the harmful bacteria were killed in just 15 seconds.
What is 15 second kill time?
This is the amount of time sanitizer takes to kill the germs on your hands. 15 Seconds is the fastest on the market. Many of the leading brands take as long as 30 seconds. If your current sanitizer doesn't state a kill time at all, there might be a reason they aren't telling you...
Does it contain methanol?
No! Methanol and other impurities are typically a dangerous byproduct found in cheap products. Lemyn Organics uses USDA organic, plant-based, USP grade alcohol, which is the highest quality on the market. As a commitment to the safety of our fellow humans, every batch of Lemyn Organics is tested by an independent lab for any impurities before bottling.
How are inedible products "vegan"?
At face value this may sound silly, but to be considered vegan, a product must not only contain zero animal products or byproducts, but it must also not be tested on animals. Lemyn Organics respects our earth and its inhabitants, and consequently is PETA-Approved vegan and cruelty-free.
Does this meet FDA standard?
Lemyn Organics exceeds FDA, CDC and WHO recommendations for effectively killing germs while remaining safe for sensitive skin. It's everything you've wanted, without the fluff, hype and confusion that comes with navigating the crowded cleansing market.
Why are there so many rancid hand sanitizers?
Since the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, the market has been flooded with horrid products, which have more business functioning as rocket fuel than hand sanitizer. This is because the FDA has temporarily relaxed its policies for the preparation of alcohol-based hand sanitizer to help with the supply shortage. However, Lemyn Organics is made to be the best, meeting and exceeding the FDAs pre-pandemic policies. A formula you can trust, even after this pandemic subsides.
What does USDA Biobased 100% mean?
The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the federal government have certified that Lemyn Organics is composed of 100% renewable biological ingredients. Meaning we have submitted test evidence of the biobased content to the USDA and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). Biobased products replace the need for many petroleum-based products, reducing our dependence on fossil fuels. By reducing the need for mining and burning of fossil carbon, we can avoid the release of the new carbon into the atmosphere and help control climate change.
Can I bring this on an airplane?
Yes, our 3oz travel-size bottles are under the TSA's 3.4oz maximum allowance for liquids & gels. For a limited amount of the time the TSA is even allowing up t o12oz of sanitizer: https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/whatcanibring/items/hand-sanitizers
