Constant use of alcohol sanitisers can lead to small amounts of alcohol being absorbed through the skin over time. Choosing a sanitiser with added Aloe Vera can help to slow down this process. The Aloe Vera creates a protective layer on the skin thereby slowing down absorption. This protective layer also helps to protect the moisture levels in your skin. When you sanitize your hands, the alcohol in the sanitiser evaporates, thereby killing any germs, however, during the evaporation process, the moisture and natural oils in your skin also evaporate which is what causes dryness and irritation. Aloe vera has natural moisturising properties so sanitizers containing Aloe Vera will give added protection meaning that whilst germs are killed, your skin stays nourished and hydrated without being stripped of natural oils.
