Dr. Teal’s is looking to keep hands healthy, happy and most importantly, moisturized.

In order to do just that, the personal care and wellness brand announced the launch of a new line of its Moisturizing Hand Soap made with pure Epsom salt and finely granulated pumice stone to exfoliate and cleanse.

Made with such ingredients as shea butter and aloe, the line will be available in four signature essential oil scents — lavender, eucalyptus and spearmint, coconut oil and citrus.

To celebrate the launch of this new line, the Stamford, Conn.-based company is partnering with Teach For America and Olympian and World Champion gymnast Laurie Hernandez to provide hand soap — the number one most request school supply — to Teach For America 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,” Tahina Perez, the executive director of Teach For America New Jersey said. “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 donate soap to local Teach For America classrooms in New Jersey, as well as provide a monetary donation to classrooms in the same area in support of teachers, the company said.

“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.”

Consumers can find Dr. Teal’s Moisturizing Hand Soap nationwide at Walmart and
