Germ-x Natural Hand Sanitizer Spray
Convenient way to sanitize your hands
When you don't have access to a sink to wash your hands, use this hand sanitizer spray. The spray nozzle makes it easier to dispense than more typical antibacterial gels.
Cutter Lemon Eucalyptus Bug Repellent
Best natural way to deter bugs
Mosquito bites don't just itch, they can spread extremely unpleasant (and potentially fatal) diseases like malaria and dengue fever. Tick bites can even turn you into a vegetarian. If you're heading to an area with potential for a lot of bugs like the jungle, you definitely should bring bug repellent.
While DEET is usually mentioned as an effective way to ward off bugs, they melt plastic which is a bit uh... disconcerting to apply to our skin 🤔 (and does irritate people with sensitive skin). We recommend oil of lemon eucalyptus solutions instead because a comprehensive study proved that it's just as effective as DEET while being all natural.
If the Cutter version is sold out, the Repel version is basically identical.
Emergen-C Immune+ Drink Mix
Fortify your immune system for a stressful travel day
If your body is healthy and well rested, it means your immune system is capable of fending off all the bad bacteria you encounter throughout the day to ensure you don't get sick. Travel days can be stressful though, leaving your immune system compromised. While Emergen-C isn't 100% effective (what is?), it's better than nothing if not just for the placebo effect (which shouldn't be doubted!).
Verilux CleanWave Sanitizing Travel Wand
Kill surface bacteria with UV light
UV light is very effective at killing bacteria by basically disrupting its cellular processes. Make your bacteria free dreams real when on the go with this proven UV travel wand, but you do have to hold it for a few seconds and we admit you might look a bit ridiculous. But hey, only the paranoid survive right?
