Monolaurin is a coconut-derived, gentle-yet-powerful disinfectant, antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral + antiprotozoal.
Clinically proven as effective as 70% isopropyl alcohol + topical treatments at killing micro-organisms - but while moisturizing instead of drying out skin.
With antioxidant green tea. Prevents the spread of infections.
For handling baby and baby's things, and for baby's and toddlers' (the whole family's, really) hands + feet.
Ideal in homes, hospitals, daycare and any place where the spread of infection is a regular risk.
As often as needed, rub over your hands before touching baby, baby's things and bottle/breastfeeding items, and when with people who are immuno-compromised. Or rub directly over baby's hands and/or feet. Let air dry.
