5 Skin-Friendly Hand Sanitisers That Won't Dry Your Hands Out | Liv

An uptick in hand sanitiser usage has our hands feeling rough, dry and cracked. But fear not: these brands are offering products that keep your hands germ-free, while nourishing ingredients save your skin.

Grown Alchemist

Just launched this month, Grown Alchemist’s hand sanitiser is made with ethyl alcohol derived from cane sugar, with hyaluronic acid, sweet almond oil and cold-pressed sweet orange oil to keep skin moisturised and calm. Triglycerides from coconut oil and fennel remove grime. 

$120 for 50ml from 10/10 Hope counters citywide. 1010hope.com

Josee Beauty

A homegrown brand, Josee Beauty creates fine fragrances and natural, organic skincare, and has recently branched into home and hygiene products. Containing just three ingredients – ethanol, purified water and glycerin – Josee Beauty’s simple but effective formula keeps germs at bay.

$100 for a pack of three, joseebeauty.com  

Bathe to Basics 

Local soap and skincare company Bathe to Basics has a natural hand sanitiser made with a base of naturally derived ethanol, with aloe vera, Vitamin B5 and glycerin to keep your skin soft. It’s delicately scented with B2B’s signature RAIN scent, a blend of eucalyptus, cinnamon, clove lemon and rosemary. 

$68 for 50ml from bathetobasics.com

Buly 1803

One for the truly fancy, Buly 1803 has a rich, nourishing antibacterial hand and foot pomade that uses a blend of essential oils – including tea tree, manuka, lemongrass and eucalyptus – for a cream with powerful antibacterial and fungicidal properties. Do note however that this product does not market itself as a hand sanitiser.

$390 from Officine Universelle Buly. G/F, 20 Wyndham St., Central, 2191-9005, buly1803.com
