Glick, a former New Jersey banking executive and mother of two active girls, discovered that alcohol-based hand sanitizers caused burning and dryness, especially on young hands with cuts and scrapes. Moreover, alcohol-based hand sanitizers are flammable and contain up to 62 percent alcohol -- higher than vodka. In a committed quest to find a safer solution, Glick turned from bank executive to mom-preneur founding Hands2GO, utilizing her M.B.A. from New York University to its fullest extent.
Hands2GO, with parent company Water Journey, is the recipient of numerous awards including the American Express Make Mine a $Million program. Glick was also recently named The New York Enterprise Report Small Business Award top winner, beating out more than 21 finalists throughout the tri-state area in New York. The award was based on best practices and accomplishments in marketing.
Created by a mom for moms, Glick recommends carrying the convenient alcohol-free hand-sized pumps everywhere you go. "Leave one in the car for the kids' carpools, one in your diaper bag, one at the office, and one in your carry-on bag for travel to use after going through security check," adds Glick. "The uses are endless and the benefit of preventing illness is beyond measure."
Following recent national news citing warnings against alcohol-based hand sanitizers due to child-related alcohol-poisoning events, Hands2GO is poised to grow to become a daily skincare product.
