Sanitising our hands has become so frequent nowadays that it is becoming harder and harder to avoid the damage it's doing to our skin. Most hand sanitisers are at least 60% alcohol and often more, they can be harsh on normal skin, and much more so on skin that’s dry and sensitive or affected by eczema or dermatitis.
Handwashing is one of the most important things we can do to keep healthy at the moment. However many must be wondering if washing with a wash that has an antibacterial ingredient is more beneficial and whether they offer a higher level of protection over regular washes?
‘Don’t forget to wash your hands!’has always been a frequent demand on our farm to our little ones and big ones alike. Now with this awful COVID19 situation, it’s become a reminder of how important simple hand-washing is to our health.
