As we’ve been hearing for several months now, handwashing is one of the best ways to keep you and your loved ones from getting sick. When soap and water aren’t available, a good, natural hand sanitizer containing at least 60 percent alcohol is important to have handy.

When using a hand sanitizer, make sure you use enough product to cover all surfaces of your hands and fingers. Spray or squeeze the sanitizer on your hands and rub together for about 20 seconds, or until hands feel dry.

Since alcohol can lead to skin dryness, look for sanitizers that are rich in hydrating oils to keep hands moisturized. Here are a few to try.

EO Lavender Hand Sanitizer Gel

Clean your hands with this 62 percent alcohol gel derived from non-GMO sugar cane. This formulation contains vegetable glycerin and jojoba seed oil to nourish your skin and is 99.9 percent effective against most common germs. The soothing lavender scent helps promote calm.

EO Lavender Hand Sanitizer Wipes

Keep this package of 24 biodegradable wipes in your bag or car and stay safe with this convenient on-the-go sanitizing option.

Brittanie’s Thyme Organic Lemongrass & Peppermint Hand Sanitizer Spray

Stay clean with this 62 percent plant-based organic ethyl alcohol spray that kills 99 percent of germs. This formula is also cruelty-free and gluten-free with aloe and vitamin E to keep your hands smooth and soft.

This convenient travel-size spray bottle is also great for spraying down tables when eating out or for carts at the grocery store.
