Want to keep safe without damaging your hands? Hand sanitizer has been the number one must-have since the world has been hit with a global pandemic, and we bet your skin can feel it!
Protecting yourself against germs is a top priority, but so is ensuring your skin stays healthy and nourished. Many skincare companies have taken the initiative to develop their own hand sanitizer, tailored it to the growing need for a safe and moisturizing solution to combat germs.
From freshly scented to eco-friendly and organic ingredients, we compiled a list of 10 hand sanitizers that will ensure your hands are staying protected and nourished even if you have to apply hand sanitizer 24 times a day
Saje Hand Sanitizer

This spray will not only keep your stress levels low when you’re out in public, but it will always ensure your hands stay moisturized on top of being clean. Not only that, it won’t give you that overwhelming smell of rubbing alcohol that we are all too well acquainted with.
