All hand sanitizers are not equal, and the differences start with ingredients. Lemyn exclusively uses 100% USDA-certified organic sugarcane alcohol to make our Medical Grade Organic Hand Sanitizer Gel. It’s the highest grade of alcohol available, and Lemyn Organics exclusively sources our alcohol from South America where the sugarcane is grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides and other pollutants that can not only affect the crop, but most importantly, cause irreversible harm to our planet.
Alcohol comes from sugarcane?
Alcohol, in its many forms comes from the distillation of grains, grasses (like sugarcane), fruits and vegetables that have already gone through a fermentation process. Sugarcane alcohol is the same type of alcohol that can be turned into rum.
Sugarcane is actually the world’s largest crop by production quantity and it is far more environmentally friendly than corn, another crop that can also produce alcohol. An acre of sugar cane produces double the amount of alcohol than corn does, so less land is needed to produce at parity. It's also energy-efficient and cost-effective, needing less water to grow in comparison to corn.
Why does Lemyn Organics only use USDA Certified Organic Sugarcane Alcohol?
We know the most effective and skin-loving hand sanitizer can only come from the highest quality ingredients. Pharmaceutical-grade, triple distilled organic cane alcohol is the only alcohol Lemyn uses, and very few hand sanitizers on the market today can say this. The extensive distillation process ensures the highest level of purity, then Lemyn works with an independent lab to test each batch, confirming that it meets United States Pharmacopeia (USP) standards.
Additionally, by using the highest grade alcohol available, Lemyn eliminates the unpleasant “tequila smell” that inexpensive and inferior hand sanitizers often have. With Lemyn, you can enjoy a fresh, clean, all-natural scent that’s refreshing, never cloying and that is great for sensitive skin.
