We tried and tested this hand sanitiser and cream set from an Irish company and can confirm we’ll be repurchasing

With so many hand sanitisers on the market, it’s hard to know which to choose to keep yourself safe. An Irish-made product is a good place to start… 


Airmedica, the new Irish personal protective cosmetics founded in March 2020, is a brand worth watching out for. Their products are reliable, safe and nourishing, created in Ireland, with Irish ingredients designed to protect the body’s natural defences. All Airmedica products are vegan and cruelty-free, and created by expert teams working in Mayo and Cork who are passionate about finding and using the best Irish ingredients possible for your hygiene and your health.

They also are focused on protecting and supporting the community, working with local hospices, hospitals and charities like Marymount Hospice, Crumlin Children’s Hospital, Mayo Roscommon Hospice and Cork Penny Dinners to donate hand sanitiser and hand cream to ensure responders are kept safe.

Total Hand Shield System, €14.99

They’ve just launched the Total Hand Shield System, €14.99, a three-step range to cleanse, sanitise and protect your hands and health. We tried and tested all three over a week.

The Protecting and Caring Hand Sanitiser is made with 70% alcohol and the power to kill 99.999% bacteria. Even better, it absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave hands feeling raw and stripped.

The Refreshing and Purifying Hand Wash is formulated with a blend of 90% naturally derived powerful ingredients like hydrating seaweed extracts and Centella, which soothes inflammation and redness and leaves behind smoother skin. It leaves your hands feeling thorougly cleaned and nourished – it’s great if your hands are ravaged from over-washing – and thanks to the warm scent of lavender and citrus, it’s a joy to use.

For when your hands need quick relief from dryness, the velvet-textured Shielding and Soothing Hand Cream soothes, protects and restores the skin’s barrier. With a blend of botanical oils that leave behind an uplifting citrusy scent, it’s heavy-duty enough to soothe while still feeling luxurious.

Key hydrating ingredients in the formula restore the skin’s barrier; there’s squalane, derived from olives, an emollient which provides surface hydration without clogging pores, plus Centella, seaweed extracts and a blend of natural butters. It’s 98% naturally derived, and creates a glove-like barrier on the skin to prevent loss of moisture to the skin and nourish, soothe and protect hands from overwashing and sanitiser.

As they say, with Airmedica, you are in safe hands.
