Hand sanitisers offered by essential oil, trichology brands
For those fretting over the dearth of hand sanitisers islandwide due to the coronavirus outbreak, there are still alternatives you can get your hands on.
Homegrown vegan skincare brand Handmade Heroes has launched No-No-Nasties Sanitizer ($8.90), an all-natural hand sanitiser to keep adults and little ones clean and germ-free.
Made with natural alcohol from sugarcane, together with water, glycerin, orange and eucalyptus oil, it is just as effective in killing 99.9 per cent of germs and bacteria.
It is gentle, with no tacky after-feel, and is less drying on the skin.
The No-No-Nasties Sanitizer is now available at www.handmadeheroes.com.sg, limited to two per order.
Order a minimum of $35 on the website and receive a bottle for free, with the promo code NONASTIES upon checkout. This promotion is valid only from March 4 to 18.
Local essential oil brands and even a trichology centre are also offering their own versions. Natural and free of harmful chemicals, Ollie's hand sanitiser spray is now available on its website www.itsollie.com for $6.50 as well as Lazada and Shopee for $7.50.
It contains an ethanol base, pure aloe vera leaf extract and 100 per cent pure essential oils including peppermint, orange and Australian tea tree.
You can also give your immunity a boost with Hysses' anti-bacterial hand sanitisers ($10.90) in cute animal designs.
Comprising ethanol and the terpene alcohol Linalool, and formulated with rosemary, peppermint and lemongrass essential oils, they also help to relieve muscle aches and joint pains, as well as soothe symptoms of colds and nasal congestion.
Also available are the Lemongrass- and Rosemary Peppermint-scented hand sanitisers ($14.90), each featuring an anti-bacterial herbal blend.
These products are retailing at all Hysses outlets and its e-store as well as Lazada, Shopee and EAMart. Due to high demand, Hysses is replenishing stock daily.
Young Living has sold out its all-natural Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier ($11.18), one of the brand's best-sellers since the coronavirus outbreak, but new stock is expected to arrive this week at the Young Living Experience Centre and its e-store.
