Cleanse & Protect Hand Sanitising Gel Joins the SBC Family
Both practical and in great demand, hand sanitiser has never been more sought after. Now is the perfect time to add Cleanse & Protect Hand Sanitising Gel to your SBC gel collection.
With demand for hand sanitiser at a high, the new SBC antimicrobial gel contains 60% alcohol to leave your hands thoroughly cleansed in the absence of soap and water. The effective formula contains 99% naturally derived ingredients offering instant cleanliness without leaving any residue.
Antimicrobial properties mean the hand sanitiser works by helping to kill germs and prevent the spread of bacteria and some viruses. However, do keep in mind, as useful as it is carrying a hand sanitiser with you, this isn’t always as effective as a thorough cleanse with soap or hand wash and clean running water. For more information on handwashing, please read our blog here.
Washing your hands regularly, for at least 20 seconds, should rid your hands of any germs, dirt and debris, but when you’re on the go, giving your hands a good scrub is not always possible. This is why we always like to keep a hand sanitiser with us. The handy 100ml bottle is perfect to pop into a bag or pocket, so it is ready for on-the-go cleansing and the 300ml & 500ml sizes are perfect for using at home or work, or for decanting into a smaller bottle to use when you’re out. It is perfect for use on your daily commute and to take with you whenever you can’t use full washing facilities. We love it for the gym, dog walking and when out shopping. It’s great for the whole family, so make sure the children have one in their school bags too!
Avoid dry, cracked hands…
Regularly using an alcohol-based sanitiser can upset the skin’s natural barrier function, meaning it can dry skin by reducing its own natural oils. Anything containing 60% alcohol, although ideal for convenient cleansing, is bound to be quite astringent. If the skin isn’t moisturised sufficiently, hands will become dehydrated, flaky and can show signs of premature and advanced ageing. So, our advice is to keep a nourishing hand cream nearby!
For the best protection, use our hand sanitiser, leave it to dry (this will happen very quickly) and then follow with an application of your favourite hand cream.

Propolis is a resin compound made by bees and used within the fabric of a beehive. The bees collect tree sap, combining it with their own secretions and beeswax to produce a sticky coating to seal walls and strengthen combs. It also sterilises the hive to control the potential spread of any bacteria entering it.
Propolis is rich in amino acids, vitamins, mineral and most importantly, bioflavonoids, which have powerful antioxidant effects. This is why bees use it to sterilise the hive and why we add it to our skincare products.
