LOS RANCHOS DE ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.—After over a year of development, Los Poblanos Lavender Hand Sanitizer is here, and the timing couldn’t be more serendipitous. Lavender has been used for thousands of years for its natural healing and antiseptic properties, and effortlessly lends itself for use in a sanitizer. The Los Poblanos Lavender Hand Sanitizer pairs perfectly with the signature Los Poblanos Lavender Hand Soap and Lavender Lotion for the ultimate hand cleansing experience.
After several rounds of thoughtful development, the production team at Los Poblanos has crafted a sanitizer that not only refreshes hands, but offers an aromatherapy boost with a blend of rose water and organic lavender essential oil that is grown and distilled right on the farm in Los Ranchos. While the FDA does not allow sanitizers to make viral claims, with 65 percent ethanol, Los Poblanos Lavender Hand Sanitizer exceeds the CDC’s effective hand sanitization requirements.
Los Poblanos is donating 1,000 bottles of Lavender Hand Sanitizer to several local organizations, including community hospitals in desperate need of supplies and Southwest Creations, a local manufacturing company who has admirably shifted all production to making face masks and gowns for Bernalillo County.
Since 1999, Los Poblanos has been growing, harvesting and distilling lavender on land that was the headquarters for the historic Los Poblanos Ranch. Organic lavender farming enables Los Poblanos to further their preservation mission by balancing a rich agricultural history with environmental concerns such as water conservation and soil structure. Lavender is a low water use plant that thrives in an arid environment, and the Los Poblanos fields have grown to hold thousands of plants after years of hand propagating the original lavender plants in the historic greenhouse.
