When we first hunkered down on safer-at-home orders, it was pretty much impossible to find essentials at the store such as toilet paper and cleaning supplies. It’s gotten a little easier but hand sanitizer is one product that is still continually sold out. Well, did you know some of the best hand sanitizer is actually coming from beauty brands now? It’s true. Both luxury and indie brands have added hand sanitizer to their offerings and most (if not all) are donating to those in need, too.

We rounded up some of our favorite hand sanitizers made from beauty brands that are available to purchase—for now. Grab them before they sell out. Each includes at least 60 percent alcohol, which is the minimum amount the CDC recommends. (This isn’t the time for alcohol-free varieties!) Many also include hand-softening ingredients in addition to germ-fighters to give your hands a little care.

Of course, even the best hand sanitizer doesn’t replace hand washing. When you get home or find a bathroom, wash up for at least 20 seconds. But in a pinch when you’re somewhere without access to soap and water, these are clutch for keeping your hands as germ-free as possible. But still, don’t touch your face.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale and the retailer may receive certain auditable data for accounting purposes.
