Hand Creams & Barrier Creams

When considering a Hand Cream or barrier cream, it is important to ensure you are using the right cream. Hand Creams are applied to the hands to protect, moisturise and soften the skin. A barrier cream is applied to your hands providing protection, an extra barrier preventing contamination from oil, grease, chemicals, dirt and even bleach. Barrier creams are also used in the medical profession as part of PPE.

Hand cream or hand lotions moisturise your hands, forming a protective barrier from the elements, soothing irritation, re-hydrating your hands. Hand cream is different from body lotion or cream, as your hands require special care. At work or home we are washing our hands with soap and water, keeping them clean and sanitised, especially when working with food. Some hand sanitisers can dry out and irritate t your hands, using a barrier cream or hand cream, which includes a moisturiser, should be part of your daily hand protection routine maintaining the health for your skin.

Always follow the manufacturer’s advice and do not use a hand or barrier cream on your face or elsewhere on your body unless otherwise directed. Always check the hand or barrier cream allergies for advice (especially if you are allergic to silicon) and dermatology testing.
