Myths about hand sanitisers
Hand sanitisers don’t actually clean your hands
In short, yes they do work but are not proven to be more effective than using soap and water. Soap and water is more effective at removing certain kinds of germs and if your hands are visibly dirty or greasy. Therefore hand sanitisers are a great alternative for on the go use or when you have no access to running water and soap. It is recommended to use an alcohol based sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol, our slightly biased opinion recommends our 99.99% ethanol based hand sanitisers, with our 9 scent wardrobe there is a scent for everyone.
You don’t need to use a lot for it to work
Hand sanitisers need to be spread all over your hands in order to be effective. Read the bottle for exact instructions however our rule of thumb is 2 pumps of our gel or spritz our mists 2 to 3 times into the palms of your hands and rub for 20 seconds.
Hand sanitisers smell bad, are sticky and dry out your hands
Since the outbreak of the pandemic the formula and quality of hand sanitiser has improved by a mile. Our luxury hand sanitiser is renowned for our hydrating ingredients leaving your hands moisturised.
All hand sanitisers are the same
Similar to the previous myth, although all sanitisers have the same purpose and goal for the user, sanitisers can vary hugely in consistency, texture, smell, and residue left on the skin. We are proud that our sanitisers are not the generic, sticky and alcohol smelling type but instead can be enjoyed being used, encouraging further use.
