Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Probiotic Hand Sanitizer is specially formulated to provide good bacteria and kill 99.9% of harmful germs with the fresh scent of inherently cleansing Australian Tea Tree Oil. It uses patented technology to create a “membrane” around the probiotic to protect it from the antibacterial formula. Probiotic benefits will be delivered after the sanitizer activity finishes. This means the sanitizer doesn’t kill the probiotic, and the probiotic doesn’t neutralize the sanitizer. The bad bacteria are eliminated, and the probiotic thrives. A powerful combination of botanical extracts including Tea Tree Oil, Thyme, Elderberry and Echinacea also help reduce bacteria.
