Purdy & Figg Hand Sanitiser Review
In fairness, there is not generally a great deal one can say about a hand sanitiser. Normally, they are pretty much of a muchness. They smell of alcohol and are generally a rather sticky gel. And they tend to be very drying, especially if they are being used frequently which many people need to do during the pandemic.
But we have found a product that sets itself apart from the rest! It has all the relevant certification and testing to confirm it will kill 99.99% of bacteria and is completely natural, so we were really interested. (And of course, the company is now registered in our Organic, Natural & Eco-friendly Directory)
Before we trialled the Purdy & Figg hero product, we were impressed by the story of this UK-based ‘kitchen table’ start-up by friends Purdy Rubin and Charlotte Figg. They were already dabbling in natural home care products when Purdy’s sons Charlie and Jack suggested they try making a hand sanitising spray. Read their story here.
Purdy & Figg’s hand sanitising spray is delightful. When I first used it, it did smell like all the other hand sanitisers I had tried. But lo and behold, in just a few minutes the alcohol smell had dissipated leaving behind a gentle fragrance. And rather than drying my hands, it certainly seemed to moisturise them.
Kirsten also tried the spray and agreed, commenting that:
I find that this does not dry out my skin like a gel hand sanitiser and once the alcohol smell has disbursed there is a pleasant citrus fragrance remaining.
The 50ml glass bottles of sanitiser are a very reasonable £5.99 each, with a 5% discount for 3 bottles and 7% discount and free delivery for the family pack of 5 bottles.
