The only skincare trend that matters right now is clean hands and thankfully, it’s not hard to master. Clean, rinse, and repeat—easy enough, right? Add in a hand sanitizer or two for when you don’t have access to soap and water and you’re covered. Alcohol-based formulas are all the rage and rightfully so because they actually kill germs, bacteria, and viruses. But for clean beauty enthusiasts, the best option is natural hand sanitizer powered by immunity-boosting herbal nutrients.

The most popular antibacterial ingredients are tea tree and thyme oil, though there are countless others being added to the growing fleet of hand cleansers. Some balance out the drying, but effective properties of an alcohol-based formula, while others are strictly plant-powered for those who swear by gentler and more natural sanitizing methods. Hand cleansers are a hot commodity right now; so much so, that even beauty brands are making their own versions with a charitable spin. But thankfully, there is an impressive assortment of lesser-known options for the taking too. Keep scrolling to snag a tube or two for your personal stash.
