Eco-lumn: Natural Creams & Lotions to Help You Moisturize After All This Handwashing and Sanitizing

At Blush and at FIT, sustainability is a major cause we care about. Eco-lumn (a play on the words eco and column) serves to inform our readers on the ongoing changes and advances within the sustainability movement within our community, and throughout the world.

These days handwashing has become more important than ever, to keep not just ourselves but also the people surrounding us healthy. However, as a result, my hands have gotten as dry as they never have before, and the loads of hand sanitizer I use daily now really don’t make it any better. So, here are some hand lotions to help us through and give our skin some nutrients to regenerate after a deep cleanse. 

Bonus- this is Blush’s Eco-lumn after all, so all of these lotions are safe for your body with no harmful ingredients like sulfates, parabens, lanolin, or dyes. Keeping toxic elements out of our body’s is essential at any time to keep our immune system and organs healthy.

Skinfix hand repair cream is a cult favorite for a good reason. Clean ingredients like colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, and jojoba oil soothe dry hands. What I love about this brand are the high standards their ingredients have, which are shared via their ‘no list.’

Saje natural wellness makes a cleansing hand lotion, which is a great extra precaution right now. Ingredients include lavender, shea butter, and tea tree oil to clean and hydrate. This brand has a strong commitment to sustainability and plant-based lifestyles as well. 

Avalon makes a great organic hand and body lotion that helps restore the skin’s lipid balance. We love this brand since it is all certified cruelty-free, natural, and vegan! 

Aesop Resurrection Aromatique hand balm has ingredients like mandarin and rosemary, and even the tube is made from 99.7% recycled material! This hand balm is a luxurious emollient that leaves hands soft but not greasy. 

Karma Cure is a small business, handcrafting and creating incredible hemp oil-based products. The crafty hand lotion also includes aloe and coconut oil, with no added fragrances or synthetic ingredients suitable for the most sensitive skin. We love no fragrance added products as they result in less irritation. So, this one is even for the very sensitive ones among us.

Stay smooth!
