Healthier, Happier Skin

PURELL® hand soaps and sanitizers are formulated with the mild and effective ingredients, so you can get the effectiveness you need and the protection from skin damage you expect – in any situation. Healthy skin is a great foundation for a hand hygiene program.

Protect your skin from damage, even with frequent washing, with these helpful tips:

Finding Balance: Effectiveness vs. Skin Health

Hand hygiene is about more than just washing and sanitizing regularly. If your skin is dry and cracked, not only are you compromising your first line of defense against illness, you’re also less likely to wash or sanitize your hands because it’s so uncomfortable. Maintaining skin health is an essential part of good hand hygiene, and PURELL® products are scientifically proven to help skin stay moisturized and feeling soft – even with frequent use.


PURELL® Brand HEALTHY SOAP® products are available in a variety of gentle and effective formulations. Whether you choose antibacterial soaps, non-antibacterial soaps, or our products with CLEAN RELEASE® Technology, you can count on a soap that’s as effective as it is gentle.
