STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Dr Teal’s, a leading personal care and wellness brand, announced today the brand’s newly released Moisturizing Hand Soap made with pure Epsom salt and finely granulated pumice stone to gently exfoliate hands and thoroughly cleanse. The formula’s combination of shea butter and aloe vera moisturizes hands when washing throughout the day. As children kick off in-person learning nationwide this fall, Dr Teal’s is partnering with Teach For America (TFA) and Olympian and World Champion gymnast Laurie Hernandez to provide hand soap, one of the top most requested school supplies by educators, to TFA classrooms.
“Educator resources like hand soap are an essential item to support the health and wellbeing of our communities, especially as students return to classrooms amid the pandemic,” said Tahina Perez, Executive Director of Teach For America New Jersey. “Now more than ever it’s imperative our students continue to maintain regular hand sanitation and we’re grateful for partners like Dr Teal’s who step in to provide those important supplies.”
Dr Teal’s will gift hand soap to local Teach For America New Jersey classrooms as well as a monetary donation to Teach For America New Jersey in support of teachers. Additionally, grade school classrooms will be gifted copies of Hernandez’s inspirational, New York Times best-selling children’s book: She’s Got This, which teaches children the importance of strong work ethic and perseverance through the illustrated story of a little girl who dreams of becoming a gymnast. Together, Dr Teal’s, Hernandez and TFA will encourage students, educators, and parents to take the time for proper handwashing as they return to busy school routines and extra-curricular activities.
“Growing up in New Jersey, I had fond memories of my time in the classroom and as I got older I always wanted to inspire younger children or even adults to not give up on their dreams. I’m excited to be partnering with Dr Teal’s on this donation to Teach For America that will go directly to my home state,” says Hernandez. “This past year has been challenging for many people, especially teachers, and I couldn’t think of a better way to help than to contribute to their classrooms.”
Dr Teal’s Moisturizing Hand Soap is available in four signature essential oils scents including lavender, eucalyptus & spearmint, coconut oil and citrus. This new offering from the beloved Epsom salt brand brings complete relaxation into the home, classroom or anywhere hand sanitation is required to gently exfoliate, thoroughly cleanse, plus provide much-needed moisture due to increased hand washing. For best results, scrub hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, then rinse clean. Dr Teal’s products are infused with essential oils to relax and rejuvenate your mind and available nationwide at Walmart and Walmart.com.
