Local beauty: Sans (ceuticals) cares and protects

Right now it’s pretty safe to say that we’re all washing our hands a lot more than usual, as well as reaching for a hand sanitiser a lot more often than we ever have before.

Called Moisture+ Shield, it is a 2-in-1 serum formulated to kill 99% of microbes, while being kind to your skin. Loaded with nourishing and protecting facial-grade ingredients, it aims to keep hands hydrated and healthy at the same time, which gets a big thumbs up from us.

The soothing formula’s key ingredients include New Zealand sourced, medical-grade mãnuka honey for its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as its ability to help to balance skin pH levels. Vitamin B5 is in there to provide deep penetrating moisture to the skin while stimulating wound repair and for its anti-inflammatory benefits, whilst Kawakawa extract – a New Zealand native skin super healer - provides antimicrobial properties whilst soothing irritated skin.

We love this formula, and the fact that we are supporting an ethical, sustainable and local business by opting for Moisture+ Shield makes it a veritable no-brainer.
