Shakespeare Distillery Hand Sanitiser is an 80% W.H.O. recommended formula hand rub. Available in 300ml and 5 litre bottles and strictly not for consumption (even you Mr Trump!). Local charities and care homes are invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org

If you’re looking for a sanitiser that’s more like a luxe hand cream than a clinical gel, then try this newly released beauty from Bramley, scented with rosemary, spearmint and peppermint essential oils.

£8 for 100ml

Aesop’s skincare offering is always a dead cert and smells delicious; this alcohol-based sanitiser is no different (expect a heady citrus and woody scent). Extra points from us for the non-drying, nourishing formula and the fact it’s cruelty free.
£7 for 50ml
From Plastic Freedom (your online one-stop-shop for eco-conscious, plastic-free products), this Keep Calm and Spray On sanitiser scores big for its brilliant name and high alcohol content (70%). It also contains hydrating glycerin and bergamot that doubles as a lovely scent and an anti-viral agent.
