CleanWell antibacterial products were invented by a family whose son was born with a rare immunodeficiency that made him extremely sensitive to germs. The family found that toxic agents in everyday cleaning products exacerbated the problem, so they developed a homemade formula using naturally germ-resistant ingredients like thyme and oregano. It worked so well that they decided to develop the formula into a mass-marketable green cleanser...
Working with an environmental microbiology lab, they developed a green cleanser that kills 99.9 percent of germs without the use of harmful chemicals. The main ingredient omitted from the mix is triclosan - a potential carcinogenic compound found in most antibacterial cleaners. CleanWell carries hand sanitizers and soaps in lavender, orange vanilla, and ginger bergamot scents.
