We are still accepting orders for gallons and drums. Rest assured that we are doing our best to get the product to you.

For those on the go our
Rinse-Free Hand Wash Gel
is a great alternative to soap and water
Our Rinse-Free Hand Wash Gel Base is a unique, crystal clear, medium viscosity gel formulation containing alcohol and a special blend of moisturizers and skin conditioning agents that leave your hands feeling moisturized, refreshed and thoroughly clean. When applied to hands it evaporates in seconds.

Glycerin, a natural humectant, helps moisturize and counteracts the drying effects of alcohol. Aloe Vera Leaf is a natural soothing and healing agent which helps prevent dry, cracked or peeling skin. Additionally, we include Pro Vitamin B-5 and Vitamin E which contribute to healthy looking and great feeling skin.

Easy to work with!
The base is delivered to you unscented and uncolored and is ready to use as-is. Our Rinse-Free Hand Wash Gel allows you to be creative and customize it by adding Fragrance, Essential Oil and Color to match your current product lines.

Simply add your fragrance and color directly to the base and mix. It will accept water and oil soluble fragrances. We recommend a load of up to 2% fragrance. If cloudiness occurs, let it sit for 24hrs and the base should clear. A gentle mix should result in a crystal clear product. A faster mix will introduce air bubbles into the base and will result in a bubbly effect.

Adding fragrance and color makes it your own without jeopardizing the integrity of the product.


We have a limited supply of retail ready bottles in 4 and 8 ounce sizes for you!

These bottles are labeled and retail ready for you to sell or use, right out of the box.

Our Hand Wash comes in our Natural Cylinder Plastic Bottles and is fitted with a Press Disc Cap for easy dispensing.
The 4 ounce bottles come in a case pack of 24 and the 8 ounce bottles come in packs of 12.


If you are purchasing our Rinse Free Hand Wash in gallon jugs, then our 38mm Gallon Pumps are essential. Their large capacity will greatly speed up your bottle filling.



• Alcohol Characteristics: Due to a nationwide alcohol shortage, we are working hard to bring you the cleanest smelling alcohol available. While you may detect a faint inherent aroma different from standard rubbing alcohol, you can rest assured we use only the FDA’s preferred formula for denaturing, which is completely safe and approved for bath products as well as external pharmaceuticals.

    Everyone loves it!!

    My husband is hooked on hand washing gel and has tried just about every one out there. This is by far his favorite and the only one that doesn’t dry out his skin. He is my best sales person. Many of his coworkers love it every bit as much as he does. If you are considering adding this item to your line, you won’t be sorry.

  10. Happy customer

    Excellent product 5 stars

    Thank you so much for proving this excellent product, my customers love it as it doesn’t dry out hands. I am so grateful to all the team at EBC for working their butts off to have this available and shipping it out quickly. These sales are paying my bills at the moment as my husband is out of work, and I appreciate it’s availability and excellent quality.

    I will go nowhere else for my bases now, wish i had found Catalina long ago:) This is perfectly balanced, has the right amount of alcohol, plus aloe and extra vitamins, but does not leave a sticky, slimy mess, nor does it dry out skin. Just a perfect product, and the staff are AMAZING, just the best:)

  12. Sahara, WA

    The best I found !

    Thank you so much for supplying this essential product. Stores are still out. I am the talk of the town since I started selling it. I tried other products from other vendors and they don’t compare at all. Most are stinky on the skin. I understand that worlwide alcohol is in short supply. I don’t know what you did at EBC but this one is excellent. Not to mention it does not dry your hands out. Thank you for trying, Excellent !

    (Cellulose Version) Fast! Odd texture but still good.

    The main thing here is that it’s ON TIME, in fact fast! I got my order faster than I got my order from a supplier in my own state even. Overall would buy again but not my favorite. I agree with the makers that the cellulose texture is a little weird if you’re used to the formula I’m used to but I wanted to see if it’s good. It was slightly harder to mix with the oils than usual, like it’s slightly less soluble maybe? I have a shaker machine, so I just left the bottles on the machine longer than usual and it’s fine. The smell is actually less penetrating than the “rubbing alcohol” scent I’m used to, so I was able to cut down on the scent oils slightly. I think my customers will be ok with it.

  14. Pink

    Great Stuff

    This base is great and customers love it. It’s not drying and actually makes your hands feel good. This new stuff does have a funky smell (I believe it’s the newly sourced alcohol) to it that not all fragrances can cover up. I hope they are able to get the original ingredients soon. It’s a small price to pay though for such a good product.
