A closer look at our antibacterial ingredients

Happy Bee proudly formulates our products with 100% natural ingredients that are both gentle and effective in protecting you from germs. To ensure quality, we opt for organic ingredients wherever possible and source all ingredients within Australia. 

SANITISER SPRAYS

Plant-based ethanol (ethyl alcohol): This is our key ingredient that kills 99.9% by dissolving the membranes of virus and bacteria cells. Our alcohol is locally sourced, plant-based and contains no additives or toxic denaturants. 

Sweet orange essential oil: Has antibacterial properties. Provides a mood lifting aroma

Palmarosa essential oil: Has antiseptic properties and is commonly used to treat skin problems due to its hydrating properties. 

Lavender essential oil:  Has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties and demonstrates anti-fungal activity on a wide spectrum. Provides a calming aroma. 

HAND WASH

Hand sanitiser is great, but washing hands with soap and water is the most effective in killing germs. Our hand wash contains the above essential oils, plus:

Aloe vera: Moisturises, soothes and hydrates skin.
Agave nectar:  Has antibacterial properties and soothes irritated skin.
