Yes, You Still Have To Use Hand Sanitiser

Ever since hand sanitizers came into our lives, there has always been a debate on which is better, a simple wash with soap or a rub with sanitizers. Although hand sanitizers are effective against most microbes, studies have found that they are ineffective against some bacteria and viruses.

Most hand sanitizers contain 62 – 70% alcohol in them. This alcohol and other compounds in them break down the microbes and kill them instantly. But no matter how effective they are, some microbes like norovirus, Giardia or the diarrhoea causing bacteria, Clostridium, cannot be killed away.

Moreover, the corona virus had mutated in United Kingdom and the new strain is already spreading across the world. Nobody knows the efficacy of the vaccine against this new strand. That is if we assume that the vaccine will work.

This is why most doctors prescribe to wash our hands with soap or hand wash. It is particularly evident during these CoVID times that washing our hands with soap or hand wash is more helpful in keeping ourselves clean.


Now, you might wonder what’s the difference between a soap and a hand wash. In terms of cleanliness, they are both good. But liquid hand wash is much better than bar soaps when it comes to keeping your skin moisturised.

The price difference between the soap bar and your liquid hand wash is usually because of the added moisturizing agent in the hand wash. The sanitizer on the other hand has alcohol, essential oils and aloe vera gel mixed up in it.

Hand Sanitiser & Hand Wash Combo Pack

In keeping with demand from the market, Earth Essentials has introduced a combo pack of hand wash and hand rub.

It is more effective in killing off bacteria and viruses from your hands. Also, it has glycerine and essential oils mixed with it, which makes your skin softer and smoother all the while protecting it from infections.

The activated carbon hand wash is a unique product from Earth Essentials too. While your ordinary hand wash uses regular fat-based soaps as their primary ingredient, this product uses activated carbon in major part.

Activated carbon is a super absorbent material that is made by heating coal or charcoal powder to very high temperatures. In this process, the carbon powder gets ‘activated’, meaning, the space between its molecules get opened up. When applied to your skin, it absorbs the dirt, oil and even microbes and clings to them until being washed away.

However, Earth Essentials is always one step ahead of other brands. It uses other carefully chosen ingredients to make activated carbon soaps, face masks, hair wash, hair masks, and so on.
