Olika Hydrating Hand Sanitizer

Mist to protect against germs.

If you’re anything like me, you can never find a bottle of hand sanitizer when you need it. This won’t be an issue with Olika Hydrating Hand Sanitizer. With reusable metal clips (carabiner style), you won’t soon forget or misplace this one.

Clip Olika to just about anything: backpacks, purses, belts. It’s perfect to take when fresh water isn’t available like when camping, dining outdoors, hiking, or driving. 

Olika contains no damaging chemicals or toxins. Instead of coming out of the bottle in a wet, goopy mess like so many sanitizing solutions do (what's up with that?), this one distributes via mist to protect against 99.9 percent of germs. Each bottle emits 300 plus sprays.

Olika's Mindfulness Collection is made with reishi mushroom and hyaluronic acid for hydration. I’ve tried the Blue Tansy fragrance, which left a clean, fresh scent behind, and Cotton Flower, which had a delightful floral note. Frosted Eucalyptus is another option.

In addition to the Mindfulness Collection, Olika's Ultra-Hydrating Hand Sanitizers (made with hyaluronic acid but not reishi mushroom) offer plenty of other fragrances, including Pink Grapefruit, Cucumber Basil, Orange Blossom, Mint-Citrus, and Lavender. For those who desire a scent-free experience, there’s a fragrance-free option. 

Cruelty-free, gluten-free, and vegan, Olika hand sanitizers are packaged in recyclable plastic. Each bottle is conveniently reusable, as Olika sells refill packs. A bottle-only variety without the detachable clip is also available.

I love how the unbreakable plastic bottle is adorably designed (it resembles a little bird). It sat in my hand smoothly and comfortably. Does a hand sanitizer need to be so delightful to be effective? Well, no. But it’s a pleasure to use. I didn’t think I could ever be this pleased to use hand sanitizer. (I generally can’t stand the stuff but recognize its importance). Olika has made a convert of me.
