How To Up Your (Rosemary Yuzu) Hand Sanitizer Game Now

February 5, 2021

Dry knuckles, sticky palms, unpleasant smell?

Cleanli is here. This all-natural Rosemary Yuzu Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer is giving me life.

Founders Ryan Lewendon, Alex Sourry and Blake Mitchell scoured the market but could not find a hand sanitizer that was effective in use but spoke to the modern consumer. They launched Cleanli ’s Rosemary YuzuMoisturizing Hand Sanitizer to create an elevated but effective sanitizing experience for clean hands and a grounded mind. And it’s working for me.

WHAT: Cleanli ’s Rosemary Yuzu Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer meets the CDC and FDA guidelines, is a certified over-the-counter drug and is made in the USA using traceable ingredients. It uses all natural, USDA-organic ethyl alcohol for it’s 63% alcohol content, which is then denatured using natural rosemary essential oil,  making this product equally enjoyable and effective.

The Rosemary Yuzu Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer incorporates antioxidants from Yuzu, Vitamin E and glycerin to moisturize, soften and restore the skin during use.

The result is smooth, clean hands with no sticky residue. Additionally, Cleanli balances the energizing citrus aromas of yuzu and green mandarins with calming rosemary essential oils to ground the mind and create a pleasant sanitizing experience.

Cleanli ’s Rosemary Yuzu Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer is packaged in a recyclable frosted glass spray bottle, for around $6.99 per unit.

Cleanli is available for purchase online at cleanli.co and select retail locations including all locations of Alfred Coffee (Los Angeles, CA) and Pitkin County Dry Goods (Aspen, CO).

Bluestone Sunshields: Privacy Gets Reflective

I love my Bluestone Sunshield because they feel the best on. It’s a simple, comfy visor that just slides on. Another brand I have literally squeezed my head like a vice. Bluestone doesn’t.

Deck The Desks With ErgoFoam

December 15, 2020

I am so loving this solution for my family with us all working/schooing from home. My son’s feet don’t reach the floor, my teen in homeschooling on the couch and now we are all fighting over it! My son’s OT person at school went nuts over it when he showed her!

ErgoFoam is an ergonomic under desk footrest, designed to facilitate better posture, relieve seated load, and increase circulation.

Flipped over, the rest becomes a rocker, and long work hours become a chance to infuse some movement into a desk-ridden day.

Awarded ‘Best Under-Desk Foot Rest of 2020’, the ErgoFoam team believes in good design and good results, and it remains their mission to help people feel their best each day.

Another great desk/home office gift – that is just as great on the couch too!
