If you have your old sanitiser plastic bottle, please keep it so that you can refill it with our biodegradable pouch. If you would like to have your order in separate bags, please let us know.
HOW TO USE
We suggest shaking well before using. In fact, due to the Xanthan Gum's properties, the viscosity of the solution is reduced when shear forces are applied (i.e. stirring, mixing or shaking), then increases again once the shear forces are removed. (Full description of Xanthan Gum here).
Apply the product to the palm of one hand and rub the product all over the surfaces of your hands until your hands are dry. This should take around 20 seconds.

ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS
The alcohol we use is called Surgical spirit. It is a liquid used primarily for topical application and made from a special denatured alcohol solution. It is more recommended to use on the skin than the common rubbing isopropyl alcohol (more info here).
Hyaluronic Acid is an amazing anti-ageing cosmetic ingredient: it attracts an incredible amount of water to the skin, leaving it deeply hydrated, softer and looking younger and also absorbs deeper into the inner skin layers. Hyaluronic Acid can attract 1000 times its own weight in water, this plumps up the skin and gives it volume, therefore, making the skin look younger. It is commonly used in moisturizers as its function is not only to deliver water to the skin but to hold it there. Its rejuvenating properties result in increased skin smoothness and softness: this makes it very effective against wrinkles.
Panthenol is particularly useful in hair care formulations but can be used for skin and nail care as well. This vitamin is often referred to as Pro-Vitamin B5. Panthenol deeply hydrates the skin, helping to prevent the skin's moisture loss while improving skin's elasticity and softness, which helps to slow down and reduce the signs of ageing. As well as this, it helps to firm and tone the skin through the production of acetylcholine.
Xanthan gum is a popular food additive that's commonly added to foods as a thickener or stabilizer. It can be produced from simple sugars using a fermentation process and derives its name from the species of bacteria used, Xanthomas Campestris. Xanthan gum is also found in many personal care and beauty products. It allows these products to be thick, but still, flow easily out of their containers.
