“I love the Frais towelettes! They're so soft and refreshing and they smell like a spa! I keep them in my purse, my car and I travel with them for an on the go spa feeling!” - Nancy O'Dell of NBC's Today Show and Dateline NBC

What Consumers are Saying About Frais Towelettes, December 2010

  • They smell DIVINE
  • They actually take off waterproof mascara and eyeliner – I found that my eyeliner came off quite easily, the mascara did need me to hold the towelette over my lashes for a while, but it did the job; most towelettes say they do, but don’t in practice
  • Foundation, eye shadow etc came off really easily
  • They didn’t irritate my eyes, which is important for a contact lens wearer such as myself
  • They’re soft and thick so it doesn’t feel like you’re wiping your face with a tissue
  • They’re individually wrapped so they don’t dry out – most towelettes come in packs of 20/25, so once you’ve opened the pack, the remaining towelettes tend to dry out and the last 5 are often too dry to be useful. ..
  • They don’t leave your skin feeling dry and/or tight after using them, so I’m guessing there’s little or no alcohol in them?  Depending on your skin type, I think you could get away with not using a moisturiser afterwards, and that’s something I’ve never experienced with any other make up remover!

Nicole, Beautyfix Member, November 9, 2009
"Thank you, Frais! I'm a complete germ-a-phobe and this fits perfectly in my purse and smells great! The bottle is really cute too."

Jenna, Beautyfix Member, November 8, 2009
"I absolutely loved this product. Loved the ingredients down to the texture and how moisturizing it was for my hands instead of drying them out like most sanitizers do. It's the perfect size to bring with you everywhere as well.

Jennifer, Beautyfix Member, November 7, 2009
"I loved the smell and the convenient small packaging. Everyone asked me about it!"

Monica, Beautyfix Member, November 5, 2009
"GREAT Product!!! Have considered purchasing it for the Elementary school teachers! I like that it does not burn my hand like the other sanitizers do, and that it also smells kind of "girly" instread of like a strong I just got sanitized. "

Stephanie, Beautyfix Member, November 5, 2009
"Best sanitizer I have come across. Love everything about it!! In a time when having one handy is a must, this stands out for the great smell and light moisturizing texture. A keeper! "

Joyce, Beautyfix Member, October 30, 2009
"I love it! Love the fragrance and how it absorbs quickly and doesn't dry my hands. I used it on my recent flight and being that it's a germy environment, it made me feel better. Plus the air is stale and stuffy so the fragrance was great. "

SMosley-Day, Beautyfix Member, October 25, 2009
"This smells awesome! Like a day at the spa! Doesn't dry out hands...will definitely purchase! "

Brenda, Beautyfix Member, October 20, 2009
"Good stuff. Goes on nice and quickly. No stickiness. It has a nice smell to it. It also softens your hands. "

C McLaughlin, Beautyfix Member, October 19, 2009
"Would buy this in a heartbeat! Love the scent and it's eco-formula. "

Deb, Beautyfix Member, October 6, 2009
"I love this sanitizer and since my friends are all germaphobes, it will make a nice stocking stuffer. Will definitely buy more of this unique earth friendly product. "

Halina, Beautyfix Member, October 4, 2009
"I love the portability of this and would love to buy some. It smells citrusy and spicey--way better than other hand sanitizers. How great is it that our hand sanitizer can be chic too? "

Janine, Beautyfix Member, October 3, 2009
"I really appreciate having the smaller size for travel. It is quite a pleasant fragrance and I love the benefits of the essential oils in this product. Very nice! "

Stacy, Beautyfix Member, October 1, 2009
"This product is perfect for my purse and its scent is exotic. A no-brainer choice over the heavy alcohol scented alternatives. When colder weather comes around, my hands won't be dry and cracked from using other sanitizers. "

Nicole, Beautyfix Member, October 1, 2009
"This hand sanitizer is great - love the pocket size. I keep it with me and use it whenever I need it. For example, after pumping gas yesterday - that was definitely a germy situation. I like knowing that it's made with natural ingredients, unlike the standard chemical fare. "

Patricia Conway, Marketing Manager, London UK, Member CultBeauty
"Genius product: I have always been a stickler for cleanliness, but the hand sanitisers that I have tried have always dried the skin on my palms to the point where I preferred the germs. This one smells really fresh and citrus-y, but not in a loo cleaner way, it is subtle. Frais doesn't leave behind any residue at all and definitely doesn't dry my hands which makes me think this would be a good one for kids as well. "

Sarah Michaels, Event Manager, Southport UK, Member CultBeauty
"On a recent trip to LA this amazing stuff was recommended to me by a girlfriend. I'd never really paid attention to hand sanitizers until she gave me some to try after a day out on the raz! I was very sceptical but as soon as she tipped it into my hands I was hooked on the zesty fragrance and it left my hands feeling surprisingly clean and moisturised. Now I carry one of these little gems with me everywhere, especially when I'm travelling on the smelly old underground here - it's really uplifting to use and nice to know I'm killing those ratbag germs at the same time.

Liz, Practice Manager, East Preston UK, Member CultBeauty
"I use hand sanitizers several times every day in my work and found Frais to be perfect for the job. It doesnt dry out your skin,it smells lovely and comes in a very useful size which fits in your pocket. I'm also happy with the fact that it contains all natural ingredients and feels very much more gentle on the skin. Sign in to rate this review. "

Brave Heart, Translator, Sydney Australia, Member CultBeauty
"Great product! I think it's one of the next best things that we will have in the next few years. I can see many people using hand sanitizers but not as posh as this one. It's good for killing germs, good on your hands and it smells very nice."

Laurie, Natural Mommie Giveaway Winner
" I have received the Frais package and have begun using it -- it is terrific smelling!! It rubs in so well and doesn't leave any kind of residue on the hands. I'm so excited to give out the small samples to my friends so they can try it, too."

Stephen Marchi, San Francisco, California USA
"I'm a smoker and hate my hands smelling like smoke. I have tried Frais and it takes the smell of smoke off my hands which really makes me happy and I'm sure everyone around me. Frais is different than the other hand-sanitizers in its great smell and how fast it absorbs."

Maree Miller, North Sydney, NSW, Australia
"It felt instantly refreshing on my hands.  The scent did not have a 'clinical' odour, or an overpowering, lingering perfume. Frais should be picked up with keys, purse, mobile etc. In this day and age, Frais should be kept at all times in the car, briefcase, handbag/s".

Patrick Naong, San Francisco, California, USA
"I like the natural clean scent which is unlike other hand sanitizers that smell like alcohol.  It goes on smooth and silky, and it is easily transported."

Emma Rosen, Berkeley, California, USA
"I have dry skin and eczema, but unlike other hand sanitizers, Frais doesn't sting when I use it. What a great luxury - I feel like I'm taking good care of myself and my skin.  Would be a treat to find this during my travels.“

Quentin Lea, Kensington, NSW, Australia
"Being a male I found Frais to be refreshingly clean and pleasing on the nose without it being over powering or to sweet!   Hope this product does well as it's fabulous!!"

Stacey Forest, Detroit, Michigan, USA
“It's not as sticky as drug store brands. And I like the fragrance as it smells and feels clean."

Louise Sakana, San Francisco, California, USA
"I prefer Frais Hand Sanitizer because it has a more pleasing scent and does not dry my hands as much as drug store brands.  I would be willing to pay more for Frais than competing brands because I prefer the premium/natural ingredients in your product.  In addition, I feel it is important to support organizations that are committed to local and green business practices and will not work with partners or suppliers that condone animal testing."

April Tavin, Palo Alto, California USA
“I always get really grossed out on planes and at airports because there are SO many germs. I’m constantly using little bottles of hand sanitizer.  By the time I reach my destination my hands are very dried out from the alcohol, and my skin is extremely dry around my nails.  The money I spent before my trip on a manicure is wasted because my nail polish begins to look terrible from the alcohol in the sanitizer and wipes.

I would totally buy FRAIS. It not only cleaned my hands but also kept my skin nourished and without the usual alcohol smell.  This is one time I would not worry about what something cost since it’s for my skin.”

"Let's talk about hand sanitizer. Not exactly a beauty product, right? And even if you're lenient enough to squeeze it into that category, you'd be hard-pressed to admit it's luxurious.
So when Frais Hand Sanitizer was brought to our attention, we were (almost) speechless—this might be the first hand sanitizer we'd consider an elegant skincare product... We think "hand sanitizer" may be too pedestrian for Frais. Perhaps "purifying and moisturizing hand treatment" would be a better fit."

December 2008

"..First, I adore Citrus -- but it has to work and it cannot dry my skin out. The scent is positively gorgeous -- I would definitely wear it if they made this scent as a cologne. We know it works from all the accolades from the World Health Organization, Mayo Clinic, etc. It leaves your hands feeling like you just put lotion on!!! ..."

".. If you are looking for a hand sanitizer that is unlike any that you can buy at your local drug store, this is what you're looking for. No stinky odor, no dry hands...Frais hand sanitizer relies on 66% sugarcane alcohol as well as natural plant oils to kill 99.9% of germs. You are getting the exact same protection as you would with the regular hand sanitizers, but using a blend of 8 natural essential oils: Ginger, Tangerine, Lemon Myrtle, Niaouli, Orange, Basil, Grapefruit and Cardamom...

"
Vegan Beauty Review
September 2008

"..For a hand sanitizer, it smells absolutely remarkable. It has essential oils of ginger, tangerine, lemon myrtle, niaouli, orange, basil, grapefruit and cardamom. Compare those to ingredients in conventional supermarket hand sanitizers (isopropyl alcohol, carbomer, tocopheryl acetate, etc.) - yuck, no thank you. I'll take Frais, please!
Each purchase of Frais Hand Sanitizer supports Just A Drop, an international charity that provides clean water for the developing world.."

"Late last month, Cosmoprof North America announced that Frais™ All-Natural Towelettes would be introduced at Cosmoprof 2011 at the end of this month. I was fortunate enough to get to test these out! To read more about Frais, please check out the link in the first paragraph which links to the press release I previously posted. At $10 for 7 individual sachet packets, these aren't very cheap - $0.70 cents a sheet. I normally use M.A.C. Makeup Wipes which is 100 sheets for $26 (or $0.26 a sheet) and I've been told that Huggies Sensitive Skin Baby Wipes are also pretty effective (512 wipes for $33 or $0.06 a sheet) but I have not personally tried that to tackle waterproof mascara. I first decided to try the Frais by itself. As soon as you open the package, the scent of a relaxing spa hits you. Honestly, that's about the best way I can describe it because it reminds me of a spa that I went to in a nearby town. I don't know exactly what scent it is (maybe Shea Butter?). The towelette is folded several times and while it's fully wet, there is no dripping liquid in either the towelette or the package (big plus for me). I opened it up and used it on my face and definitely enjoyed the smell. I was not wearing makeup at the time but did notice that the towelette got dirty off my face effectively. My face didn't feel any different but the smell was relaxing and there was no oily or sticky residue left on my face. Because of the Eco-Friendly properties of the towelette (100% vegan, high grade, all natural ingredients), I handed one to my friend who has a massive sunburn from a day at the beach. I was a little worried on how it would react on peeling skin, but she absolutely loved it. (NOTE: The package does say to avoid use on broken or inflamed skin.) Next I tried one as a makeup remover. I had on Urban Decay Primer Potion (in Eden), eyeshadow from the Naked Palette by Urban Decay, M.A.C. Prep and Prime Lash primer, and M.A.C. Zoom Lash. Frais did well in removing all my makeup with just one towelette and minimal effort, which is the big one for me. It took about 50% more effort to remove than with a M.A.C. Makeup Wipe (so maybe 2 wipes across my eyelid instead of 1), but my skin honestly felt better afterwards. I'm starting to consider things like crows feet and bags under my eyes, so it was nice to have an all natural product to use. The last test for me was on my feet. I have a form of rheumatoid arthritis (psoriatic arthritis) and the latest in my treatment of the edema in my left ankle is to be wearing a compression sock and walking boot for the rest of 2011. I decided to clean my feet using a towelette before putting my sock and boot on and then walk around for a few hours to see if I noticed any difference. I normally wear flip flops (I do live in South Texas!) all day so my feet are normally exposed to the elements a lot. It was nice to feel my foot slightly moisturized by the towelette without an oily or sticky feeling to it and it did soften the areas on my heels that were cracking. Overall: Much like the review I did on Karuna Masks on, I absolutely love this product, but because of the price, I would tend to hold off on buying this as a regular product and instead use it for special occasions. I think this also makes a great gift as each box has the individual towelettes. "

"Frais Towelettes Review and Giveaway
Frais is an Australian-based company founded in 2006 whose mission is to improve the health and welfare of travelers, business people and families. Frais All-Natural Towelettes are completely natural, eco-friendly, non-toxic, and vegan. They provide a natural method for revitalizing the skin and removing makeup with exposing the skin to toxic chemicals. Frais even donates a portion of proceeds to Just A Drop, a foundation bringing clean water to communities around the world.
Frais All-Natural Towelettes are wonderful. They are unlike any other facial cleansing wipe I have tried. I was expecting more of a “baby wipe” or a “stinging makeup remover”, but I can happily report that they are neither. I used my first wipe to freshen up in the morning and remove some leftover makeup. The towelette smelled wonderful and refreshing and was so soft and gentle on my face; I had to look down at the towelette to believe how much dirt and makeup it had removed. My two daughters quickly joined me in the bathroom and I used it on both of their faces too!
Some great things about the Frais All-Natural Towelettes are they are big enough to fully freshen up your face, hands, etc. And I love that they came individually wrapped so I can stick a few in my purse and car for when I’m out and about. Overall, I was very impressed with the towelettes felt fantastic using a product that was so eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and uses all-natural ingredients!"

No need to use the baby’s wipes to smell baby fresh – Frais offers a clean essence for both men & women. Plus, the towelettes will remove waterproof mascara in a pinch! Frais All-Natural Individual Towelettes contain Ginkgo Biloba, pure Shea Butter, Vitamin E and a luxurious assortment of eight Australian-blended essential oils, lifts the mind with Ginger, Tangerine, Lemon Myrtle, Niaouli, Orange, Basil, Grapefruit and Cardamom.

"Celebrate Earth Day All Weekend Long With These Eco-Friendly Goodies!
Taking care of our habitat shouldn't be something we consider once a year, when April 22nd rolls around and posters bearing illustrations of lush trees and perky flowers cover every store window. So, at Sicka Than Average, we've pledged to cover eco-friendly fashion and beauty all year long. And, rather than limit Earth Day to a single 24-hour celebration, we've transformed it into a weekend-long extravaganza. Yesterday, we kicked off the festivities with our first Earth Day story and, today, we're offering you more coveted finds sure to induce a sense of eco euphoria.
Frais Towelettes .. What beauty hound doesn't keep a stash of makeup removing towelettes in her bathroom cabinet? Still, many of the facial wipes in the marketplace contain cosmeceutical ingredients that dehydrate, irritate, and aggitate skin so that, while they're handy for removing makeup, they present major drawbacks. Australian brand Frais, then, offers a solution to this conundrum with their All-Natural Towelettes, which are formulated with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, moisturizing shea butter, soothing chamomile and brightening gingko balboa and alpha bisabolol. Each towelette is so saturated with moisture that it feels as gentle as a hypoallergenic baby wipe (minus the alcohol content). Thanks to a mix of eight essential oils (ginger, tangerine, lemon myrtle, niaouli, orange, basil, grapefruit and cardamom), each wipe boasts aromatherapy benefits, energizing you and lifting your spirits. Frais also gets extra points for individually packaging each towelette rather than stacking all the wipes atop one another and tucking them inside a plastic pouch with a peel-off sticker opening that will inevitably lose its adhesiveness and lead to the towelettes drying out way before they're ever used."

"Refresh Your Face in One Wipe
I would love to say that I fall asleep each night with a face that has been washed, toned and moisturized. But if I said that, I wouldn’t be telling the truth. Even if it’s just a Saturday once in a blue moon (that maybe I’ve enjoyed a little bit too much), sometimes I hit the hay before the sink. It’s no coincidence that in the days that follow, my skin is dull, either too dry or too oily and the worst part: broken out. So I’m taking a stand against my awful habit. I will not go to bed without a clean face. Easier said than done. Until I came across Frais Towelettes, that is. These individually wrapped skin revitalizing and make-up removing towelettes are perfect to stash on the nightstand for a quick cleanse before bedtime. They cleanse the skin thoroughly, remove makeup (even around the eyes) and provide antioxidants. With ingredients like ginkgo biloba, vitamin E, alpha bisabolol from chamomile and shea butter, Frais Towelettes are completely hypoallergenic and 100 percent vegan. The fresh scent and a non-sticky feel have me stocking up. Throw some in your purse and your gym bag, too."

"I rarely use any wipes on my face to remove makeup. Mainly because I never believe those claims and second because of the drying feeling they leave. However, when Frais All Natural Towelettes came, I was pleasantly surprised. I used the 1st one to remove my makeup and was extremely surprised by a nice clean face. Usually my makeup can last 2-3 days just because I can’t wash it off. The Frais wipes had a nice fragrance and were thicker than a baby wipe. It did not break out my skin, and no drying. It was nice to have around just to cool down and refresh my face. Even my youngest daughter liked them, and she is one to not want her face wiped off so much. She would ask for another wipe over and over. In fact, I believed she used all my tester sheets before I was. Overall- I would recommend anyone (even sensitive skin!!) purchase the Frais Towelettes. They are affordable and work!"

"Marvellous, Almost Magical, Beauty Multi-Taskers
Also travel-friendly are the Frais Towelettes .. These single-serve towelettes in eco-friendly, recyclable, slim, foil packages are infused with natural, anti-bacterial and botanical extracts that combine a calming, cleansing lotion with aromatherapy and essential oils to freshen and hydrate your skin, and also remove makeup. The towelettes are no lightweight--they will even dissolve waterproof mascara. Yet, they're still good for sensitive skin (they are ophthalmologically and dermatologically tested and approved). Natural botanical extracts of Ginkgo Biloba and Alpha Bisabolol rejuvenate tired skin while, protect against environmental stress, and reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. Shea Butter moisturizes, while Vitamin E from wheat germ is a good antioxidant. "Les Huit" is a mix of Ginger, Tangerine, Lemon Myrtle, Niaouli, Orange, Basil, Grapefruit and Cardamom essential oils from Australia. The blend is unique; There is an earthy, almost clay-like note, but it's also slightly herbal, and slightly lemony, and a scent I think men will find appealing, too. Take these luxurious packettes on your next trip. You will feel renewed, as you wipe away the "grime" For those who care, the product is 100% vegan, and the company uses carbon neutral shipping to all retailers and customers in the USA whenever possible. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds (not specified) goes to the Just A Drop Foundation (they bring clean water to communities around the world). "

I’m not an adherent to the sanitizer faith. I scoff at Lysol and Clorox commercials, with “responsible” mothers wandering around after their toddlers, wiping down every surface. In fact, I attribute my mother’s lax attitude toward mud pies and fingerprints as why my boyfriend is sleeping off a fever in the other room, and I feel perfectly fine. There is evidence (though not overwhelming) that over sanitizing has contributed to the rise of super bugs, and the fall of our normally robust immune systems.
However, sometimes hand sanitizer comes in handy. Like when I went with a group this summer to Governors Island, and we had to make use of the port-a-potty. Or when I’ve just stepped off of the subway, where I was sharing a pole with thousands of other commuters, and I’m in the mood for some finger food. Or last week, when I wanted to hold Mike’s brand new little niece.
Frais Hand Sanitizer Location: Coogee, Australian ..
Environmental Standards: Frais’ packaging is made from recycled plastic and paper.The company claims its sugarcane alcohol requires half of the energy to produce than the corn alcohol used in other hand sanitizer brands, and that it pays for shipping to be carbon neutral for retailers and customers in the USA “when possible.” It is also PETA certified as a cruelty free, vegan cosmetic producer. Frais regularly makes donations to Red Cross and other groups working in disaster areas, Habitat for Humanity, and a long list of other groups.
Aesthetics: The normal sized bottle is attractive, if a little bulky and weirdly shaped, but it comes in several sizes, ranging from single use sachets and a the Frais pocket, a wee 0.2 oz squeezable container which I promptly lost, all the way to a large dispenser, gift boxes, and fifty packs of the pocket size. It smells citrusy and light.
Effectiveness: A box of the larger Frais bottle comes with detailed explanations of the benefits of the various essential oils it uses, like increased circulation, help with clearing bruises, anti-inflammation, relief from muscle aches, astringent, and more woo-woo things like “renews zest for life.” Um, OK. The bottom line is that the Mayo clinic says anything with more than 60% alcohol will be effective against germs. With 66% ethyl alcohol, this sanitizer gets it done. ..
Brooklyn Bottom Line: They are both great products. Frais is marketing itself as a more upscale line, with higher price points, more bells, whistles, and essential oils, a yummier scent, and a fancy, if rather clunky, bottle. If you’re the type of girl who gets her beauty supplies from C.O. Bigelow, than by all means, pick this up for your vanity. .."

I am a self described girly girl, however I also like to keep things clean and simple. Sometimes we want to chose the easiest product in our beauty corner. No fancy packaging, no over the top fragrances and no fuss. If you are like me you might have been turned off and disappointed by easy makeup removers. The chemical smell and lack of quality turns those little towelettes from convenient into troubled skin. Fortunately writing about beauty has its advantages. I have recently tried Frais and in their own words "Natural and Revitalizing" is exactly what I got. Everything is packed so conveniently you will want to share them with your closest friends. Plus I am secretly hoping the botanical extracts of Ginkgo Biloba and Alpha Bisabolol will cure my tired dark circles. Carrying a hand sanitizer in my bag is especially important when on the go in a city environment. You never know when you might need it. This one from Frais will make for a pleasant change. Simple beauty, here we come."

If you want to stay germ-free without harsh chemicals, Frais Hand Sanitizer is the way to go (I toted the pocket sized bottle all around Disneyland this past Monday much to the delight of my entire group of girlfriends.) Eight natural essential oils (ginger, tangerine, lemon myrtle, niaouli, orange, basil, grapefruit and cardamom) and pure sugarcane alcohol work together in this vegan formula that is free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oils, petrochemicals, silicones, and artificial colors and fragrances. Packaged with 100% recycled material in a design-friendly bottle, this lightweight and moisturizing formula is as orglamic as they get."

"2-in-1 Beauty Miracle Worker!
After a grueling hot yoga class last weekend, I was sore and sweaty. Last night's mascara had formed dark streaks and smudges down my face and my hair was a mess. All I wanted to do was to go home and take a shower! .. I should have been carrying a Frais Towelette. Frais, an Australian eco-beauty brand, developed their moisturizing towelettes to sooth dry skin while actually relieving facial tension, thanks to all-natural ingredients such as gingko biloba, Vitamin E, a chamomile extract, and shea butter. In addition to revitalizing skin, they double as makeup remover. Unlike some products, the towelettes remove makeup without leaving a greasy or oily residue behind. Because they're alcohol-free, you can gently wipe them over your skin after waxing to freshen up. For all you eco-friendly beauties, rest assured: Frais is certified by PETA as a "cruelty-free cosmetic producer." Their products are 100% vegan and the packaging is 100% recyclable. Looking back on my parking lot fiasco, I wish I had had a Frais Towelette stashed in my purse! I could have wiped away my stress and dripping makeup and given my skin some much-needed TLC to calm down before dealing with my car trouble. Heed my advice, collegiettes™: consider purchasing a package of towelettes! You never know when you might need one."

"At night, the last thing I really want to do is add any more extra steps before washing my face. Just getting motivated to wash it, is enough for me. Yet, having used these wonderful Frais Towelettes, I don't know if I can go without them anymore! Yikes. I'll admit, I'm so converted and addicted. It really feels like I'm experiencing a mini-facial spa before bed! Made with 8 essential oils, botanical extracts and Vitamin E, there is a light and fragrant scent, yet the cleansing power behind these towelettes is simply amazing! The heaviest eye-makeup, waterproof mascara, powder, etc. all clears away in a few simple and efficient swipes. Just to make sure I've removed everything, I've used the entire towelette to the point where no further make-up is picked up anywhere. The best part though, is how super clean and refreshing my skin looks and feels afterwards. The all-natural towelettes are really safe to use and non-irritating - there's no alcohol, no redness, just super clean skin. I'm so hooked and in love with these towelettes- even though it is one more step before bed, it's definitely worth feeling this pampered and indulgent!
* Natural botanical extracts of Ginkgo Biloba and Alpha Bisabolol rejuvenate tired skin while fending off environmental stresses and reducing the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. * The rich emollient pure Shea Butter moisturizes to soften and sooth dry skin while helping to relax tension in the face. * Revitalizing antioxidant Vitamin E from wheat germ helps maintain the appearance of young, healthy skin."

"Do you like using hand sanitizer? I hate it but I use it because I need it.. I am a little obsessed with keeping germ free so I always have some with me... in my handbag, my desk at the office, in the kitchen.. As you all know there are some out there that are super strong and reek of alcohol and seriously, dry the heck out of my paws.. Since it's winter here it's really important to me that my hands are germ free and clean, there are too many colds and flu's going around and I don't want to be down for the count.. OK, so I mentioned it being winter, did I mention how freaking dry the air is here? I am dry so I need to be careful about using hand sanitizers.. I can't have my hands so dry, it's terrible, my hand get cracked and raw looking.. So enter, Frais, the most gentle and amazing hand sanitizer I have used.. It has a really pleasant scent it's citrusy with a touch of ginger so its got a kick.. I use several times throughout the day.. I use between a dime and quarter sized squirt and rub into my hands.. It smooths into my hands and doesn't DRY them out at all, It feels amazing and works.. I don't have to follow up with a hand moisturizer after each use either, so that is amazing.. I can use and avoid washing all the time too, so this is effectively saving my hands they don't look raw and flaky so I am in better shape and it's only been a week! "

"Makeup Addict has been using Frais Everyday Hand Sanitizer for a while now. Please do not think the 66% pure sugarcane alcohol is like the alcohol in other sanitizers -- it is incredibly gentle. Frais Everyday Hand Sanitizer is so gentle -- while being effective -- that my hands have healed from the drhying of the heat and other sanitizers I used. I would try to remember to apply lotion after using them but forgot and suffered the consequences. This has a very fresh, clean fragrance which has some terrific citrus tones to it. You will not get that alcohol-y smell you get from others. Your skin will be clean and fresh -- but hydrated!! I actually use it for a couple of things that I find it effective for -- I use a drop of it on the phone after someone else uses my phone -- I use it on my keyboard -- and I use it on the handle to flush toilets. Hey, it cannot do any harm -- and possible some good - to get the germs off of those locations. I cannot carry around an antibacterial spray such as Lysol -- but this is so small you can carry it with you. Also, as Denise mentioned -- it is easy to leave one in your desk, your car, in your purse, and many other places you can think of where it will come in handy. Frais Everyday Hand Sanitizer is a real treasure and your hands will love you for using it!!!"

"Health is such an important part of your inner beauty. I just got over bronchitis, which put me in bed pretty much for a whole week. .. I know that hand sanitizers are a big thing for people who are conscious of the spread of germs. I’m not a germaphobe and I generally don’t use any hand sanitizer. I’m fine with just washing my hands, however, there have been times when it wasn’t possible to wash my hands which made me wish I did have hand sanitizer handy. My problem with most hand sanitizers are the chemicals that are put in them. Instead warding off the germs that get you sick, I think it’s these chemicals that actually make you sick. You put the hand sanitizer on your hand and then those chemicals are transferred to the food you eat - if you're eating something like a sandwich. Or you bite your fingernails...or lick your fingers after eating chicken... I was a little hesitant to try out Frais hand sanitizer until I found out that it contains natural non-toxic ingredients like ginger, tangerine, lemon myrtle, niaouli, orange, basil, grapefruit, and cardamom. Other ingredients include Australian-blended essential oils, and 66% high grade eco-friendly sugarcane alcohol. My nose really picks up the scent of the ginger in Frais hand sanitizer. What I like most is that it leaves your hands feeling real clean and fresh. It doesn't have that residue that I feel with other sanitizers. "

"If you are at all like me, and if you are a mom, I bet you are, then you carry those little bottles of hand santizers around in your handbags and they are in constant use. The problem with most of these bottles of santizers is they contain triclosan, a pesticide that actually weakens the immune system. That defeats the whole point of slathering them on ourselves and our families. I recently came across a product with which I fell for hook, line, and sinker.
The people that created Frais hand santizer really hit a home run with this product. It comes in a little bottle but it packs a powerful punch. I can use it on my babies with no worries about what chemicals I am putting in their tiny little bodies. Most hand sanitizers, aside from the chemicals in which they are based, leave my hands dry and scaly. Since the natural oils in your skin actually do help protect us from germs absorbing into our bodies, dry hands, in my view, defeat the whole purpose of putting hand sanitizer on my hands in the first place. This beautiful little product left my hands soft, supple and protected along with smelling absolutely good enough to eat.
Frais Hand Sanitiser is luxurious, portable and made from natural, non-toxic ingredients. Most importantly it contains 66% natural alcohol that (according to the Centre for Disease control and The Mayo Clinic) kills 99.9% of germs encountered in everyday life, including influenza, the common cold, MRSA and many others. Made with eco-friendly sugarcane alcohol and a blend of eight essential oils, the sanitiser actually helps to moisturise and has a an uplifting citrus aroma. The Organic Blonde is giving away, to three lucky winners, a gift pack with 14 pocket bottles (6ml each) of Frais hand sanitizer, this wonder in a bottle. ",

"So Fresh And So Clean: Frais Hand Sanitizer
It’s mid-winter and my family has had its fair share of sniffles, coughs and one violent stomach bug. We were headed to visit family to show off the new baby and I packed my new container of Frais Hand Sanitizer in my carry-on to help keep us from picking up even more bugs. Like any other sanitizer it’s 66% alcohol base helped kill off 99.9% of germs and a few days after returning home we appear to have dodged any sickness bullets. But if the chemicals of your typical hand sanitizer make you want to take you chances with the bugs, there are a few things that set Frais apart. The alcohol that kills the bugs is made from sugarcane and the other ingredients include ginger, tangerine, lemon myrtle, niaouli (an evergreen tree), orange, basil, grapefruit and cardamom oils. Although still drying, I found this sanitizer to be less drying than usual. The upside was the nice fresh, citrusy-botanical scent. Plus, like all other Frais products it is free of parabens, propylene glycol, petrochemicals, ethoxylates, silicones, phthalates, mineral oils, DEA, sodium lauryl sulfate, artificial colors or fragrances and certified by PETA to be cruelty free and vegan."

"It’s that time of the year when germs spread faster than you can say “flu shot.” With that said, you better wash your hands (especially if you deal with public transportation, like me in NYC). Even better, carry around a hand sanitizer. Sure, it may seem obsessive, but I did not get a flu shot so I can’t take any chances. Luckily I recently discovered Frais Hand Sanitizer, which is like an upgrade from your average one. Frais Hand Sanitizer comes from Australia, home of all-natural and organic, so I knew there’d be some goodies. And there are. Not only is the alcohol from sugarcane, which produces three times more alcohol per area than corn, but the alcohol from sugar cane consumes four times less energy. Good to know! Frais Hand Sanitizer is also packed with great essential oils, a whopping eight in total, including: ginger, tangerine, lemon myrtle, niaouli, orange, basil, grapefruit and cardamom. So as you would imagine, it doesn’t only make the scent more enticing but that extra protection for your hands. Tangerine alone treats skin ailments and increases circulation, while lemon myrtle is a natural antiseptic. Basil improves skin tone and orange is a natural antioxidant that protects your skin cells from damage. It keeps going! Cardamom has anti-inflammatory properties and grapefruit has antibacterial and antiseptic properties, not to mention it tones the skin and tissues. Frais Hand Sanitizer is only $3.50 for the pocket size. A truly terrific bargain that smells great and keeps you from catching germs."

"My Hospital Bag: Packed (Again!)
Hospital bag, pregnancy, what to pack, travel There are oodles of posts on-line about what to bring with you to the hospital when in labor. The hospital bag is highly debated- do you just rely on what the hospital can provide or go all out pampering for mommy? How much paraphernalia do you bring for being actually in labor? I could go on and on. I found lists that were pages long and included things like bringing in your breast pump. So, I somewhat approached my bag by seeking a middle ground. I have some stuff for being in labor (a handheld massager from Bath & Body Works, some hard candy to suck on, I'll likely bring my computer for emailing later on but it also has all of my music). My issue really is that I have no idea how long I'll be in the hospital (24 hours after a regular delivery, 3-4 days after a c-section), so I need to plan for that. I'm also very into beauty products and somewhat pampering myself, so I didn't want to skip steps. Somehow I did manage to pare it down. I think I was also able to do this because I was admitted a few weeks ago, my previous version of the hospital bag was somewhat haphazard and had way too much stuff (though in my defense I had mostly packed it while dry heaving from a virus before heading in). Regardless, here's what a high maintenance beauty blogger brings in her make up kit...
2.) Frais Towelettes: During my 24 hour super pregnant with the flu admission, I didn't really feel like using the rough hospital towels to wash my face.

The Frais version is even more portable and the wipes are larger..."

"Frais Towelettes: A Portable Spa in a Packet
Frais towelettes review I love the towelettes that are available now, whether they come from the drug store or department store. Unfortunately, not all towelettes are created equal. Some are much too small, some barely clean anything off of my face, leave a strange residue behind or smell gross. These towelettes have none of those issues. The Frais towelettes are a bit bigger than usual (8x7.5 inches), have a light fresh scent, and clean everything easily and quickly. When I say everything, I mean these towelettes will even take off waterproof mascara!

" I've been a fan of Fraise's hand sanitizier for a couple of years now. I have a bottle at my office, have a couple of travel sizes for the gym and for my pocketbook, and one in my car. It is pretty much the only hand sanitizier that not only cleans my hands, but doesn't dry them out - it actually makes them pretty soft. So it's no surprise to me that I am hooked on the these little towelettes as well. I got the opportunity to sample a few of the towelettes and immediately made a mental note to grab a box or two of these. Again, Frais succeeds where other similar products do not in that they do not dry the skin out. I don't know if it's the alcohol content in other products or what, but Frais soothes and softens the skin while cleaning it. As a make-up remover I find that it really goes to town to get the days cosmetics off my face - granted I still do need to use my regular cleanser to remove the last bit of mascara, but not much let me tell you. As a body and skin revitalizer, these are great after working out when I don't have time for a shower and just kind of want to freshen up a bit - these are perfect for that. They smell so good too - it's a clean, fresh scent - not at all medicinal or nasty. These little satchets would make great stocking stuffers for your favorite guys and gals.... check out the other Frais products while you're at it. Just a quality company with excellent products."

"Frais Towelettes are eco-friendly, which I immediately loved. They contain all natural ingredients like essential oils, botanical extracts, Vitamin E and Shea Butter. They’re 100% vegan and they come to you in 100% recyclable packaging. Speaking of packaging, each towelette is individually wrapped, preventing your beauty investment from drying out and losing it’s magic. It also makes it easy to bring one along when you travel, head to the gym, or need a mid-day refresher!
I reached for one after a long day of work and the scent immediately captivated me: a mix of things like cardamom, grapefruit, and basil. I felt like I was in a spa! The towel is the perfect size: not too big, not too small. Also, it isn’t overly saturated with product, so it doesn’t leave your face dripping wet. The formula isn’t sticky and immediately seemed to calm my red and tired cheeks.
Bottom line? It just made my skin feel healthy! As far as removing makeup, I’d say 95% was gone at first swipe. For things like thick liner and mascara, it took a bit of extra work, but eventually came right off. And because the product is opthamologist tested, I knew it was A-OK to work the towel around my eyes.
Overall, I give Frais All-Natural Towelettes an A! They’ll definitely be coming home with me this Thanksgiving!"

Pretty much everything, from the packaging (it's recyclable) to the ingredients (sugarcane alcohol and eight Australian essential oils including grapefruit, cardamom, basil and niaouli) to the scent (it's a far cry from the industrial cleaning product aroma you're used to). Frais actually makes your hands feel soft and conditioned, as opposed to dry and tight. The brand is 100-percent vegan, not tested on animals and their Sydney headquarters uses wind and solar power to reduce their impact on the environment. And, just in case you need one more reason to try it, Frais donates a portion of its proceeds to Just A Drop, a foundation that brings safe drinking water to communities around the world."

Frais is an eco-friendly, all-natural, vegan hand sanitizer which kills 99.9% of germs with high-grade, energy efficient sugarcane alcohol rather than low-grade, harsh everyday rubbing alcohol.

"What can you do to stay healthy? Wash your hands with the aforementioned soap and hot water. On the go, try a squirt of PETA-certified vegan, chemical-free Frais Hand Sanitizer, which uses renewable sugarcane alcohol and a blend of eight essential oils to kill 99.99% of germs—and donates a portion of proceeds to clean water non-profits. Or wipe hands (and handles) with a paraben- and phthalate-free Cleansing Towelette infused with organic aloe, comfrey, ginger root and chamomile from MD Moms or an alcohol-free, biodegradable Eat Cleaner individually-packaged food (and hand) wipe, which utilizes citric acid, an anti-viral, to safely clean hands as well as it cleans produce.

"Fight swine flu while smelling your best
The fight against flu is going upmarket. An Australian company is touting a high-end hand sanitizer that aims to elevate disinfection from annoyance to extravagance. Frais – pronounced "fray," as in the French word for fresh – gets its germ-killing properties from sugar-cane alcohol, which is said to be gentler on the skin than varieties contained in drugstore brands. It is also peppered with a proprietary blend of eight essential oils that moisturize the skin while producing an aroma more reminiscent of an eau de cologne than a medical clinic. ... "It's like a bottle of wine ... (The scent) matures over time," said Davis-Smith. Public health officials point out that any hand sanitizer with an alcohol content of 60 per cent or more – Frais is 66 per cent alcohol – can be effective in killing the germs that cause many respiratory illnesses, including H1N1 flu. "If the product has at least 60 per cent alcohol and if it's effective – we're certainly in favour of anything that encourages people to wash or sanitize their hands," said Dr. Sarah Wilson of Toronto Public Health...Recently they've pitched the merits of travel-sized bottle to major airlines. Main said he's done research that indicates 45 per cent of airline passengers use the lavatory to wash their hands before their inflight meal; he theorizes that if those passengers were handed a vial of Frais as an alternative, the airlines could save on fuel costs by hauling less water.

It had to come down to this eventually: designer hand sanitizers...Retailers are latching on to the notion of hand sanitizers as fashion accessories, such as on cute key chains designed to dangle from student backpacks. ..Other upscale brands in the mix: EO and Frais. The number of hand sanitizer products rolled out through mid-October this year is five times the number introduced in all of 2005, reports researcher Datamonitor. ..

"Frais is back at Natural Mommie, thankfully just in time for flu season!! Just as a little recap here's some info about this great Australian company. Frais creates eco-friendly, luxurious and aromatherapeutic, all natural , vegan hand sanitizer that kills 99.9% of germs without the traditional chemicals found in other hand sanitizers. Frais' high grade sugarcane alcohol and moisturizing essential oils make it possible to stay safe from germs throughout the day without drying the hands from using chemicals and it is completely plant based! We're in the middle of the lovely H1N1 pandemic so I have bottles of hand sanitizer peeking out of every nook and cranny, pocket, glove box and purse. With regular hand sanitizers, I always feel conflicted when I use them on my toddler. I mean, I have to keep his hands germ free, but part of me always wonders if I'm doing more bad than good by using sanitizer. Luckily Frais is free of artificial ingredients, the scent is lovely and not overwhelming in the least, and it truly is moisturizing so I have no worries about using it with my son. The beautiful packaging {pretty packaging for hand sanitizer? that's a first!} is recyclable and looks more like a fancy bottle of lotion than anything else. It's no wonder Frais is getting all sorts press about being a "sexy sanitizer"! For review, I picked out what I find most practical to have this holiday season: the Frais Holiday Gift Set . As a gift, it's perfect for travelers and anyone frequently on the go. The size was designed to slip into a standard ziplock bag to pass through airport security which is why I'm pleased to have this with me for when I fly in 3 weeks. The set includes fourteen 6ml units that I would estimate you get about 15 or more uses out of each. My husband keeps them in his jacket and loves them. The elegant and uplifting scent is made up of eight natural essential oils that includes Ginger, Tangerine, Lemon Myrtle, Niaouli, Orange, Basil, Grapefruit and Cardamon. Natural Mommies, if you haven't tried it yet, definitely put this naturally moisturizing, eco-friendly hand sanitizer on your list of must haves! There's a reason why celebs like Carrie Underwood, Kelly Ripa, America Ferrera, and Britney Spears are all fans!! And how's this for an idea to keep friends and family members germ free for the holidays - buy this gift set and attach one to each of their presents under the tree! { the giveway } Frais is giving THREE lucky readers each a Holiday Gift Set of Frais pocket sized sanitizers!"

"Ethical Luxury + Hand Sanitizer = Frais
With this crazy flu season approaching, and my little eco-toddler starting pre-school for the very first time there are a few things I carry with me at all times. Besides a lipstick, my cell phone and a Larabar for my son (peanut butter please) if you look in ANY purse or bag I carry at any time, you will ALWAYS find at least one small container of hand sanitizer. I was very excited to find a company that combined the luxury of quality that I love with a hand sanitizer that doesn't make mt eyes water or my hands stinky. What I LOVE About Frais Han Sanitizer: The Smell is amazing. Made with Ginger, Tangerine, Lemon Myrtle, Niaouli, Orange, Basil, Grapefruit and Cardamom - both my eco-toddler and my eco-dude, LOVE the smell. Evaporates quickly leaving your hands super soft.

"Hand sanitizers work by creating a smug layer of, "I'm so clean, look at me" to a user's hands - seriously they function by stripping away the outer layer of oil on the skin. Sales of these products have soared by up to 80% in the past two years according to the Cosmetic Toiletry & Perfumery Association. Most hand sanitizer is 62 percent alcohol – more than most vodka, which averages about 40 percent alcohol. The high concentration, say the manufacturers, is needed to kill germs. Some brands contain more than 60 per cent alcohol - the website YouTube is literally awash (ahem) with videos of students drinking the hand gel or lighting it on fire for kicks. Products such as Frais are the natural alternative to chemical based hand sanitizers and contain a gentler sugar-cane alcohol. They have become cult accessories for the eco-conscious."

"For the Gracious Hostess
Try to serve individual portions of hors d'oeuvres in small containers like shot glasses or small take-out style boxes. And make sure there is plenty of serving-ware so guests hopefully won't use their hands in the nut dish.
Place bottles of hand sanitizer in the restrooms or discreetly in the kitchen so guests can quickly cleanse. Recent studies show that hand sanitizer (especially those with alcohol) are more effective than hand washing. We love eco-friendly, fresh-smelling Frais or the good ol' standard hand sanitizer standby. "

"Hand Sanitizer - A Must
With all the viruses going around these days, the scare of the H1N1, colds and germs having a hand sanitizer with you at all times is a must. It is even more of a must if you have kids. Keeping the germs from taking over our lives is huge right now. I recently received my fall Beautyfix Bag and it was filled with a great hand sanitizer from Frais. Frais Pocket Hand Sanitizer is a great little product. It works well and smells wonderful. It does not leave your hands smelling like you just applied hand sanitizer since it has ginger, tangerine, lemon mytrle, niaouli, orange, basil, grapefruit and cardamon in it. The only down fall of the product is how small it is. This pocket hand sanitizer would last less than a day at my house. I would need a larger bottle, like the Frais Everyday. But I do recommend this product not only for its smell but because it is not tested on animals and comes at a great price, $3.50. "

"Carrying hand sanitizer in your purse has probably become second nature. But what does the one you're currently carrying have in it? Does it reek of alcohol and chemicals? I'm sure. That's why you should switch to Frais Hand Sanitizers. Their mandate is "to add luxury to the smart practice of hand sanitizing." Les Huit is a blend of 8 essential oils (ginger, tangerine, lemon, myrtle, niaouli, orange, basil, grapefruit and cardamom) and sugarcane alcohol that kills 99.9% of germs. Not only will your hands smell spicy and enticing, but they won't dry out. It comes in different sizes, so that you can customize it to your bag - there's the Pocket, Everyday, Gift, Spa and Travel. Why not use a hand sanitizer with healthy ingredients that smells great and won't parch your skin in the process?"

"Nothing can ruin your holiday cheer faster than a winter illness. Keep your hands clean, even when you can't get to a sink to wash them with soap and water, with a good hand sanitizer. One I like is the new, eco-friendly Frais Hand Sanitizer $3.50 0.2 fl. oz; $7.00 1.7 fl. oz, $29.00 15 fl. oz.  The product is 100% vegan, made of all natural ingredients. The light gel feels refreshing and cooling on your skin, and  "Les Huit," the company's mélange of eight natural Australian-blended essential oils, creates a scent is as complex as a fancy perfume: a delightful, spicy, blend of ginger, tangerine, lemon myrtle, niaouli, orange, basil, grapefruit and cardamom. This is a green company, that not only has recyclable packaging, but it's sugarcane alcohol requires five to ten times less energy to produce than the corn alcohol used in other hand sanitizer brands. The company headquarters sources Green power such as wind and solar. Part of every purchase of the product to the Just A Drop Foundation, supporting water, sanitation and health projects around the world. Get the big bottle for yourself and your home. Gift the smaller-sized bottle (fits into any pocket or purse, and it looks so cute!)  into everyone's stocking. Better yet, tie a ribbon on a bottle for each of your work colleagues, and let the "Secret Santa" help keep them from spreading germs, too. "

If you travel very often, it is a good idea to have a basic travel-toiletry kit ready to go. We like packing in zip lock bags or other see-through bags, marking each one with a sharpie pen to designate the contents...

Frais Hand Sanitizer Summer is a time for sun, fun and grubby paws. As the weather heats up, your kids likely will be spending more time outdoors, which means they'll be sticking their hands on swings, water faucets, sandboxes and plenty of other enticing yet germ-filled objects. Being a bit of a germaphobe myself, I'm never caught outside without some form of hand sanitizer, which has become all the more useful now that my daughter Sadie is actively running around and grabbing anything within reach! If you want to be the fancy mommy or daddy on the playground (and who doesn't?), pick up a portable size of Frais Hand Sanitizer. Frais is comprised entirely of natural, non-toxic ingredients, including 66% high grade eco-friendly sugarcane alcohol and eight natural Australian-blended essential oils which combine to kill 99.9% of germs encountered in everyday life, including influenza, the common cold, MRSA staph, swine flu and general ickiness. I've found that Frais stands out from the other hand sanitizing products on the market not only in its effectiveness, but also in its sleek packaging, moisturizing properties, clean scent and non-alcoholy feel."

Frais is the pioneer in the creation of a new beauty category – LUXURY, ECO-FRIENDLY hand sanitizers. Frais is actually enjoyable and beneficial for the user..."

"When you need to wash your hands but can’t get to a sink, hand sanitizers are the answer. A new crop of all-natural sanitizers is loaded with skin-soothing essential oils. Our picks contain at least 60 percent alcohol—the amount recommended by the Centers for Disease Control to banish bacteria. Use only when soap and water aren’t available—and only half a teaspoon to avoid irritating your skin, says Rebecca Tung, M.D., a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.
FRAIS HAND SANITIZER is made with 66 percent sugarcane alcohol, which requires less energy to produce than the corn alcohol used in most sanitizers, and a blend of eight essential oils like ginger and tangerine that keep skin hydrated. It’s also available in a 0.2 ounce size that’s perfect for tucking into pockets and purses. "

"I tried a a luxurious product on the market: moisturizing, aromatherapeutic Frais. Infused with 8 essential oils, from grapefruit to tangerine to ginger, Frais smells delicious. Its active ingredient is sugarcane alcohol, instead of generic rubbing alcohol, so it’s more moisturizing than other standard brands."

"Frais puts Australian blended essential oils in the best-smelling hand sanitizer I’ve ever experienced. With ginger, tangerine, lemon, myrtle, basil as just part of the mix, there’s a real luxury sensation going on. I first heard of the product when we were frantic about swine flu, but hey, we need hand sanitizer all the time. Some of us more than others."
