3 Plant-Based Ingredients You Need In Your Hand Sanitiser

Germs are everywhere

Did you know that at any moment, your hands could be playing host to a world of germs and bacteria? Right now, any of these common bacteria could be on your hands and can cause serious illnesses:

In addition to that, given the high infection rate of new diseases, regular sanitising has become more crucial than ever, making the convenient hand sanitiser an integral part of modern life.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends using hand sanitisers with at least 60% alcohol to effectively kill bacteria and viruses. However, this high percentage of alcohol can be tough on your skin too, more so if you have dry and/or sensitive skin.

What you need is a hand sanitiser that can safely kill 99.9% of germs but at the same time keep your hands soft and smooth. Look for a gentle formula made of plant-based ingredients with natural soothing and moisturising properties.

Here are our top 3 botanicals to help soothe and moisturise dry skin while providing numerous other skincare benefits at the same time, for hands as soft, healthy and beautiful as your face.

Cica (Centella Asiatica)

Also known as Gotu Kola, Centella Asiatica has been treasured for centuries in traditional medicine for its remarkable healing properties. Here’s why it’s so widely revered:

  • Regenerates skin – Rich in triterpenoids, which stimulate collagen production and accelerate wound healing, Centella Asiatica helps fade scars, promote cell turnover and restore elasticity.
  • Soothes sensitivity – With its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, Centella Asiatica is a boon for sensitive or irritated skin. It calms redness, reduces inflammation and provides relief from conditions like eczema and rosacea.
  • Enhances barrier function – By strengthening the skin’s protective barrier, Centella Asiatica helps shield against environmental stressors, preventing damage and moisture loss.


Time to raid your kitchen! Far from just an aromatic culinary herb, Rosemary is a soothing skincare ingredient with a host of wonderful benefits for your skin:

  • Provides antioxidants – Rosemary is rich in antioxidants like rosmarinic acid and carnosic acid. It helps neutralise free radicals and defend against oxidative stress.
  • Stimulates circulation – The invigorating properties of Rosemary promote blood circulation, delivering oxygen and nutrients to skin cells. This revitalises the skin for a healthy glow.

Green Tea Extract

Green Tea may be a beloved beverage but within the delicate leaves lie a potent skincare ingredient revered for its soothing and anti-ageing properties:

  • Fights free radicals – Packed with polyphenols and catechins, Green Tea Extract contains antioxidants that fight free radicals and protect against UV damage.
  • Calms inflammation – Green Tea Extract’s anti-inflammatory properties soothe irritated skin, reduce redness and alleviate conditions like acne and eczema.
  • Brightens skin – The catechins in Green Tea Extract inhibit melanin production, helping fade dark spots, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone for brighter, more luminous skin.
