Is Your Hand Sanitizer Drying Out Your Skin or Making it Bleed?

When you think about hand sanitizer, you might think of harsh chemical scents or fragrances, and how it leaves your skin dry and irritated. If you’ve been using it more often lately, it can even cause your skin to crack and bleed. The experts at Doctor D. Schwab want to change the way you think of hand sanitizer forever. They created a plant based, moisturizing hand sanitizer with a gentle, pleasant scent, so you can disinfect effectively without sacrificing soft hands.
