In the wake of the global pandemic, we are more aware of hand sanitation than ever before. The use of hand sanitizers has exploded over the past two years, which has left a lot of people’s hands dry and damaged. They have also exposed many of us to an unpleasant number of toxins and harsh ingredients. The Clean Beauty Awards celebrate Natural Hand Sanitizers that work. Our judges have the added task of testing these products to see how their skin responds and what added benefits - rather than unpleasant side effects - they offer. Here are four hand sanitizers to look out for.
Aremes Fermentis’ Hand Cleansing Gel is a gentle and non-drying sanitizer that contains ingredients like aloe vera, lavender essential oil, vitamin E, and pro-vitamin B5 to deliver moisture and protection to the skin. This product will provide a necessary boost in both hygiene and hydration.
My Alchemy Skin Care's conditioning hand sanitizer is made with 65% Organic Grape Alcohol and Essential Oils. It purifies, nourishes and gives skin an intense moisture boost. This plant-based product offers a quick-absorbing lotion that is conveniently portable and helps protect against germs, dryness and chapping. The aromatherapy benefit of Purifier PLUS helps bring peace and calm to your day while keeping your hands clean and silky smooth.
Natural Red’s Germ Freek Hand Sanitizer unites the germ-killing power of alcohol and the antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial properties of lemon, clove, cinnamon, rosemary, and eucalyptus essential oils. These ingredients are blended with the soothing and moisturizing duo of aloe vera gel and castor oil. This sanitizer leaves your hands clean, moisturized, and smelling fresh.
SOOTSOAP Premium Hand Sanitizer Gel was initially developed for first responders and frontline and healthcare workers to combat common complaints of dried, bleeding hands from hand sanitizer overuse. Frustrated with a sticky residue and smelling like yesterday's hangover, SOOTSOAP Premium Hand Sanitizer Gel is a game-changer. SOOTSOAP's unique Hand Sanitizer will not only kill harmful bacteria but also leave your hands soft and keep that alcohol smell at bay.
If you haven’t yet, it is about time that you swapped out your hand sanitizer with a natural, clean beauty version. These four alternatives are perfect for a functional product that won’t strip your hands of moisture.
