Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back! And welcome if You are new here 💕💕💕

Natural hand sanitisers
Natural hand sanitisers

How are you, I hope You are all well? I might be three months late for this post, but I still think it would be helpful of me to round up natural hand sanitisers I know of? I do think hand sanitisers are here to stay long term and I will always prefer them natural to the ‘conventional” ones. I hope You are with me on that one, and if not aren’t (yet), then please save do yourself a favor. Save this post. Go on to research the ingredients in them one by one. If You are horrified, come back to this post! Send this to your friends too!

A few things before we start – a product to be called a hand sanitiser, it has to pass strict testing to get a certificate and by law it has to have at least 70% alcohol. You are likely to find moisturizing ingredients and essential oils in the natural ones too. Ingredients differ, as do price points. Some of these products are called hand rubs or hand gels, so I am not too sure about their certification status or the exact alcohol content. I will try to list the ingredients to the best of my ability, but please also bear in mind I haven’t tested all of them. I was never a germophobe prior to this Covid nightmare, and while I happily used alcohol-free hand sanitisers before (they do exist too), I  made sure to stock up on my trusted Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic Hand Defence Spray, now renamed (and presumably reformulated) to Natural Defence, now available in rub, spray and refills.

I will list prices and ingredients, true at the time of publishing, they might change in the future though, so please always double check if You will be seeing this post at a later date. Don’t be shy at contacting the companies with any questions about the ingredients, formulations or certifications – that’s the beauty of current times, everyone is within reach. I grouped the sanitisers by their place of availability, aka online shops, not by alcohol content or the price point,  hope that work for You?

Amazon

As I was poking around Amazon searching organic hand sanitisers, I didn’t find anything I liked, but I came across something that piqued my curiosity to no end – copper soap, copper hand roller or tools for opening doors/ touching keypads, etc. I need to do much more research on this, but they claim that germs do not survive on copper surface, so therefore these are the best things for us to use? Apparently you rub your hands on the “soap” or roll the stick between the palms of your hands for 1 minute, or stick it up your nose to kill germs there! It’s so “ewww” but also “huh?!” at the same time, isn’t it? What do you guys think? Anyone with any experience with it? There might be truth to it, I have recently heard reports of official recommendations to replace all the public door handles with copper ones?

That’s it for today, thanks for reading! I appreciate you 💕
