About Pristine Cleansing Sprays
Let’s be honest, how antiquated are our bathroom habits? Over the past 2,000 years, we have graduated from leaves to coarse toilet paper (thank goodness for double-ply!), but our progress stopped there. At Pristine Cleansing Sprays, we asked ourselves: Does our current gold standard of dry toilet paper really provide the cleanliness that we require in every other facet of our lives? We believe that it does not. We ask for soap in public restrooms to clean our hands. Hand sanitizers have become widely available in retail stores. Overnight lodgings provide shampoo and other cleansing products for our bodies. However, the least clean part of our bodies is ignored on a daily basis. We would all agree that a dry towel does not adequately remove germs and bacteria from our hands or body, yet we continue to assume that dry toilet tissue performs better.
Wet wipes seemingly provide an effective cleaning method, but most contain synthetic or toxic ingredients, such as Cocamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Propylene Glycol, PEG-75 Lanolin, 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1, 3-Diol, and Sodium Benzoate. Even many of the “natural,” “sensitive,” or “free & clear” versions are well versed in greenwashing language. “Flushable” wipes may flush, but they do not always disintegrate or biodegrade. Septic tanks, plumbing, and sewage systems have experienced clogging across the world, and landfills are becoming overpopulated with theses wipes (Follow us on Instagram and Twitter for more information about these topics).
Whether you strive for a more natural existence while minimizing your personal carbon footprint, whether you simply want a more effective cleaning method, or all of the above, Pristine Cleansing Sprays offer one easy solution. Pristine Cleansing Sprays are made from a blend of natural or naturally-derived, plant-based ingredients and 100% pure carrier oils and essential oils. Pristine Cleansing Sprays are intended for use along with toilet tissue. Simply shake and spray directly onto the toilet tissue and use as usual. Pristine Cleansing Sprays are also excellent with paper towels or for homemade baby wipes for changing diapers. Convenient 1.0 ounce “travel” bottles discretely slip into your purse or pocket for an effective clean wherever you are.

About Our Ingredients
The ingredients list for each spray is short and hand selected. And, that is the goal. Each of the ingredients has been selected to offer a unique contribution to every spray. Listed below are some of the many benefits associated with the natural oils in our sprays.
Apricot Oil: Rich in essential fatty acids and has high vitamin A and E content, making it a brilliant emollient known for its ability to easily penetrate and moisturize dry skin without leaving an oily residue. In addition to being an effective moisturizer, it also has excellent restorative properties.
Fractionated Coconut Oil: The liquid form of coconut oil that contains moisturizing properties that nourish dry skin. Also, said to be antimicrobial and have antioxidant and disinfecting properties.
Vegetable Glycerin: Derived from vegetable oil, is an outstanding moisturizer and cleanser that provides softening and lubricating benefits; hypoallergenic and easily soluble in water.
Witch Hazel Distillate: Natural cleansing agent that offers a soothing, gentle cleanse. Contains astringent, anti-irritation, and anti-inflammatory properties, which have encouraged its use on hemorrhoids. Witch Hazel Distillate does not contain alcohol (unlike some Witch Hazel mixtures), which can dry, sting, or irritate skin. Instead, our Witch Hazel Distillate includes 0.14% benzoic acid as a preserving alternative to alcohol.
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil: Effective in maintaining moisture and oil balance of the skin, and keeping the skin hydrated and smooth. Ylang Ylang Oil (meaning “flower”) also introduces a pure, refreshing floral scent.
Preservative System: Pristine is always free and clear of parabens, isopropyl alcohol, phthalates, formaldehyde-causing agents, synthetic fragrances, and other harsh chemicals. Pristine uses a naturally-derived primary preservative system, necessary to prevent microbial growth (Propanediol, Pentylene Glycol, and Phenethyl Alcohol), as well as food-grade Potassium Sorbate.
Emulsifier: Unlike other toilet paper moisteners that may be watery, clear, and thin, Pristine is white in color. This is because Pristine has a high oil content, which means that you get MORE of the good stuff. To ensure that the oil mixes with non-oil ingredients, Pristine includes emulsifying agent Polysorbate 80 so that every spray of Pristine has a balance of all the ingredients that you need for the perfect cleansing experience without leaving a residue.
While we take pride in each ingredient in our sprays, we are also proud of the ingredients that we do not include in our sprays. Pristine Cleansing Sprays are always clean and clear of harsh chemicals, phthalates, formaldehyde, and synthetic fragrances.
