Our hand care formulation
Essential oils are a great added ingredient to ensure your hands don’t dry out from frequent washing and sanitising. There is an essential oil for every skin type and every skin issue and we have a variety of essential oils added to every product.
Essential oils are the volatile oils derived from plant material usually by distillation. They are highly fragrant and concentrated meaning that they can be too harsh on the skin, so we mix and dilute them within our products so they can moisturise, sanitise and clean your hands.
Why should you use essential oils on the skin?
Natural essential oils are antimicrobial and antibacterial, so added in with our alcohol formula, it makes it an all round winner for skin sanitising and hydration!
