Natural ingredients for hand care
Washing your hands is one of the best and easiest ways to protect yourself and others against illnesses such as food poisoning and the flu. To get the best results, it’s important to wash your hands properly. You can read an article about the best way to wash your hands here.
Regular hand washing
Even though regular hand washing is a great way to care for skin and keep germs away, it may also damage your skin. Cleansing ingredients in hand washes effectively clean hands, but they can also wash away oils and potentially damage the protective barrier, which can leave your hands dry and irritated. That’s why it’s important to use the right moisturising hand soaps. Some of the best ones are inspired by nature, using natural moisturising ingredients.
Natural ingredients for skincare
There are many known natural ingredients that can nourish and moisturise your skin. A few of these include aloe vera for skin, honey for skin and milk for skin. They can be found in a number of hand soaps and help to keep your skin naturally moisturised and feeling good.
Aloe vera for skin
Aloe Vera has been used for its skincare properties for more than 3,000 years – even by the ancient Egyptians. Queens Cleopatra and Nefertiti thought of it as a fountain of youth and used it to preserve their skin against the sun. Today, Aloe vera is still used for its skin benefits including natural moisturising. You can find this moisturising ingredient in Palmolive Hygiene-Plus Liquid Hand Soap with aloe vera extract and a natural antibacterial agent.
Honey for skin
Since ancient times, honey has been used as both food and medicine. Honey for skin has well known applications for its antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Palmolive Naturals Milk & Honey liquid hand soap contains honey and helps to care for dry hands.
Milk for skin
Milk is not only highly nutritious, there are some benefits of milk for skin and a study has shown it helps to remove dead skin cells and stimulate new cell growth. You can find milk as an ingredient in a number of Palmolive Naturals range of liquid hand soaps, such as Palmolive Milk & Almond, Palmolive Milk & Orchid Palmolive Olive and Milk Palmolive Milk & Honey.
Coconut for skin
Coconut oil has a range of skin benefits including possible anti-inflammatory properties, natural moisturising and, of course, the wonderful coconut scent. If you want to feel closer to nature, try Palmolive Pure Liquid Hand Soap with coconut to help keep your skin moisturised.
