The Benefits of Natural Hand Wash
In recent years, how often or how thoroughly we wash our hands has shifted to the front of our collective conscience. Washing our hands is something we do many times a day, without a second thought, often leaving our hands parched in the process. Here’s how natural hand wash can switch up this dull (and even drying) part of your routine – and help Nature.
Gentle but Effective
You wash your hands more than any other part of your body, so choosing a product for the job that won’t strip your skin of natural oils or cause irritation is important. Many hand washes contain harsh chemicals that can leave your hands dry and uncomfortable, such as parabens and SLS. Ours are formulated without these ingredients, making them effective at cleansing, but gentle on your skin. Our Aloe Vera & Tea Tree Hand Wash contains tea tree, known for its antibacterial qualities. Finish with a natural Hand & Body Lotion for a boost of hydration.
A Little Aromatherapy
According to the NHS, we should wash our hands for 20 seconds. And that 20 seconds is a perfect opportunity to enjoy a moment of your favourite fragrance. All our hand washes are made with 100% natural origin aroma, evoking Nature. As you lather up, enjoy the uplifting scent of Grapefruit & Orange, for example, the calming aroma of Lavender & Geranium, or a tropical waft of Coconut.
We all know that antioxidants do good when they’re in food, but what are their benefits when they’re in hand wash? These free radical-neutralising compounds can reduce inflammation and have a soothing effect on your skin. Our much-loved Lavender & Geranium Hand Wash is made with grape skin extract, which contains antioxidants. The exotic fruit in our Dragon Fruit Hand Wash is rich in antioxidants, as well as vitamins and minerals. And the wild harvested seaweed in our Seaweed & Citrus Hand Wash also contains antioxidants.
Better for the Planet
Washing your hands isn’t just about keeping your hands clean, but the planet too. Natural hand wash is much better for the environment than most regular alternatives. Ours is biodegradable, so you can be sure no nasties are going down the plughole. Plus our standard size bottles and pumps are now 100% recyclable and recycled. And if you’re really passionate about giving Nature a helping hand, consider bulk-buying hand wash refills to save on plastic. Or go totally plastic-free and swap liquid hand wash for our zero waste soap bars.
