If you’ve ever smelt lavender-anything, you’ve already discovered one of our core ingredients in ourhydrating hand sanitizer formula: Linalool. 

Linalool is most commonly used as a scent and flavoring agent, but bonusit’s also known for its anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and stress-relieving properties! Plus, with a scent similar to lavender with just a touch of spiciness, of course it made the cut for OLIKA’s high-quality, hydrating hand sani formula. 

Lavender

Where does it come from?

Over 200 species of plants produce this colorless liquid, and its popularity doesn’t end there. Linalool is used as a scent in nearly 80% of scented hygiene products, so we’d bet you’ve crossed paths before. Look out for linalool in soaps, shampoos, detergents, and other cleaning agents. 

How does it work?

Researchers suggest that linalool affects brain cells and receptors, influencing their function. Considering lavender’s reputation for restful sleep, it’s no surprise that linalool is most popular for its calming effects. 

Did you know?

Linalool has medicinal roots stretching back to the ancient Romans and Greeks, who believed the fragrance of lavender would sooth untamed lions and tigers. While we can’t vouch for that one, a quick mist of OLIKA hand sani definitely soothes our holiday stress. 

We believe in transparency when it comes to ourhand sanitizer ingredients, so don’t miss our other spotlights on our core clean hand sanitizer ingredients like aloe, glycerin and limonene.
