Three different bottles of hand sanitiser

What is the best hand sanitiser for me?

While we continue to live through the Coronavirus pandemic, adjusting to the ‘new normal’ and implementing the changes necessary to protect our loved ones and fantastic keyworkers, it’s clear that the popularity of hand sanitiser shows no signs of slowing down. And why would it? Using hand sanitiser regularly is one of the simplest steps you can take to reduce your chances of falling sick, something we’re all trying to avoid now more than ever.

And with prices to suit every budget and formulas to suit every skin type, there is a solution out there for you. That being said, too much choice can be a bad thing and deciding what to buy can become overwhelming. That’s where we come in – with over 34 years’ experience in sanitising the nation, we know how to keep you clean. That’s why we’ve compiled a handy list of recommendations to help find the right hand sanitiser for you.

Sometimes the simple things in life are the best and washing your hands is no exception. For the best protection against COVID-19, we recommend following these three steps to achieve optimal hand hygiene: washing frequently with soap and water, using an alcohol-based hand sanitiser gel and moisturising to keep your skin soft and healthy. But, when you’re far from home and on the go, an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that’s gentle enough for everyday use is the perfect thing to reach for. We recommend PURELL® Advanced Hygienic Hand Rub, formulated with 70 percent ethyl alcohol, this hospital-grade hand sanitiser gel is a first choice for Doctors and GP surgeries. Killing 99.99% of most common germs and developed with moisturisers to keep your skin healthy, this no-rinse hygienic hand rub is a great option to keep your hands feeling clean, wherever you are. Our Clinell Hand Sanitising Alcohol Gel is another skin-friendly choice. Made with 70% alcohol, this fast-acting, quick-drying gel has a moisturising formula that leaves hands clean without any stickiness.

If you’re looking for a hand sanitiser that’s a little more versatile and up to the challenge of tackling whatever life throws your way, hand sanitising wipes can make the great alternative to traditional gels and foams. Our Clinell Antibacterial Hand & Surface Wipes are the most effective antibacterial hand wipes available on the market today. Each impregnated wipe kills 99.999% of germs in a little as 10 seconds and contains aloe vera, making them ideal for everyday use. Unlike standard hand sanitising gel, these hard-working wipes remove dirt from soiled hands, excellent to reach for in situations where no soap and water is available. 

It’s also worth noting that for those of us with sensitive skin, using an alcohol-based hand sanitiser regularly might not sound too inviting – that’s why moisturising is such a key part of hand health. Thankfully, science has produced some excellent formulas that protect your delicate skin from irritation. Our water-based, fragrance-free Gojo Hand Medic Skin Conditioner quickly absorbs into the skin, leaving behind no greasy after-feeling. Specifically formulated for professional technicians for use in their work environments, it helps maintain skin’s moisture levels, making it the perfect step after using your hand sanitiser.

However, if none of our suggestions above ticked your boxes, we have a whole range of tried and tested hand sanitisers in every formula and size, all aimed at meeting your sanitising needs, whatever you’re looking for. You can view our entire product offering here.
