I was recently given the opportunity to try a hand sanitizer called Prefense. I always keep a bottle of hand sanitizer in my kitchen, as well as in the car. When I carried around a diaper bag, I always kept a small bottle in there as well. You just never know when you might need it. You could say I am a bit of a hand sanitizer addict, so I was excited to be able to try Prefense.
I received a 1.5 oz bottle of their Silica Based Foaming Hand Sanitizer. Because it is silica based, it is not drying to the skin on your hands, which is a huge plus as far as I'm concerned. I have actually noticed that my skin feels softer after use, it acts almost like a lotion to soften my hands. It has a light fragrance that is not at all overpowering and does *not* smell like your typical alcohol based sanitizer, in fact, Prefense is alcohol free. It is made of all natural and organic ingredients, including amosilq silica complex, water, vegetable glycerin, cocamidopropyl betane, and organic essential oils.
As with any hand sanitizer, you simply apply Prefense to your hands, rub together, and let it dry. Your hands will be protected for up to 24 hours or up to 10 hand washings with only one application! Isn't that amazing?

I will totally be stocking up on Prefense for when my children are in school (I think it would make a great addition to a teacher's desk too!), and with my husband's profession (Firefighter/EMT-soon-to-be-Paramedic), an application of Prefense before work certainly would be a nice boost of protection for him. I love that Prefense remains active and continues protecting you even though you are washing your hands throughout the day. There is no need to reapply for an entire 24 hours or through up to 10 hand washings. Prefense recommends applying just once or twice a day, that's all you need. Best of all Prefense protects against staph, strep, E.coli, drug resistant MRSA strains, and more. They fight germs that other hand sanitizers can’t.
The small 1.5 oz bottle of Prefense I received for the purposes of this review, offers 120 applications. Wow, right? Well, Prefense is offering one lucky reader an 8oz bottle that offers 640 applications!
