23 Effective Hand Sanitizers That Are Actually Moisturizing

As a germaphobe who always has a stash of hand sanitizers and wipes everywhere I go, I haven't had to change my routine much. (But maybe now I won't feel as bad for holding up the TSA line at the airport while I wipe down the bins.) In any case, I'm more than willing to spend time researching the product that has long kept me sane whenever I leave the house. 

First thing's first: You'll want to find a hand sanitizer made with at least 60% alcohol, per CDC recommendations. Beyond that, you'll want to look for some key ingredients if you want a formula that will also moisturize your hands: aloe, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, almond oil, tea tree oil, and lavender oil are all great for this. Scroll down to shop moisturizing hand sanitizers that also meet the CDC's recommendations for alcohol content.
