Kid-Friendly Hand Sanitizer: Meet OLIKA

We are navigating some very different waters, here. Our kiddos are zooming with their classmates, navigating chrome books, and hybrid / remote schedules. They are seeing their friends, but a lot less. Through plexiglass. Screens.

When we made the decision to go with the hybrid school option (two days at school, three days remote), I knew I’d have to send the boys to school with sanitizer. We have quite the collection of brands at home that my husband and I use, but I wanted to make sure the boys had something clean, that wouldn’t strip their already sensitive skin.

Coincidentally, OLIKA reached out – talk about perfect timing!

Did you know “olika” means “differently” in Swedish? Fun fact about this NY based company! From the way they design their products to their love and appreciation of Nordic design, At OLIKA they want to reinvent personal care and household staples. They are committed to being safe and sustainable. Their focus is safety and biocompatibility with skin and eco-friendliness to the planet – all things we can all get behind!

The OLIKA Hydrating Hand Sanitizer Spray, their signature effective & clean formula with an ultimate misting experience, hydrates & cleans, killing 99.9% of germs. With 500+ mists per packaged delivered in a super ergonomic, fun design, it’s also refillable! Our family favorite is the mint citrus scent.

I thought I’d share for you mamas looking for something safe for your kiddos.

If you try Olika, let me know what you think! xo
