Keep calm and sanitize

NEXT to staying home, keeping our hands clean is the second most important directive we have to keep in mind as we grapple with this Covid-19 pandemic. Since running water and soap aren’t always available, sanitizers are a must-have in our bags whenever we go out.

Here are five sanitizers from proudly Filipino brands—because #supportlocal, of course—to add to your daily essentials:

Anapanasati |

Formulated with pure essential oils like rosemary and lavender, Anapanasati’s line of room and linen sprays have anti-microbial, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties perfect for disinfecting. It is chemical-free, which means it is safe to use on the hands, and it does not stain most fabrics.

Messy Bessy | @hellomessybessy

Don’t let its size and name fool you. The Little Warrior packs quite the punch. The multi-purpose concoction can be used as a hand sanitizer, disinfectant, room spray and surface cleaner. It comes in three scents: Green tea, Bergamot and Chamomile.

Human Nature | @humanheartnature

Aside from bacteria-killing, 60 percent, sugarcane-derived ethyl alcohol, Human Nature’s Natural Sanitizer also contains soothing aloe extract to moisturize skin and vitamins B1, B2, B6, C and amino acids to keep it supple. It comes in sweet, vibrant scents like Citrus Burst and Zesty Pomelo.

Beauty Affair | @beautyaffairhub

In light of the current situation, the face and slimming hub recently released its own collection of hand sanitizers in five exquisite scents: Tea tree, Lavender, Bergamot, Sandalwood and Chamomile. It contains dual moisturizer and vitamin E so it cleans hands without drying them.

Casino by IPI | @CASINOofficialpage

The brand is most known for its bottles of ethyl alcohol, which are essential for the home and office—no fancy scents, just a straightforward, 70 percent disinfecting solution. It comes in a variety of sizes as well, including a handy travel size perfect for germ protection on the go.
