Hand Sanitiser NZ & hygiene in the age of the COVID-19 pandemic at LoveMy Makeup NZ - introducing the Novogel Anti-Bacterial Hand Sanitiser

Hand hygiene and hand sanitiser nz in a Pandemic

Hand hygiene and hand sanitiser has become part of our daily lives in the last few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic around the world. Governments everywhere run large awareness campaigns to ask the public to take extra precautions to wash and clean their hands very carefully to avoid the spread of this virus. Hand Sanitizer has become quite popular as its an easy way to keep hands clean while not near running water. For example, I use it a lot when I go out in the car to get groceries and other essentials. Rather than waiting to get back home to wash my hands and in the process potentially infecting the car and other items on the way, I wash my hands with a hand sanitiser in the car itself. 

The challenge has been getting hold of hand sanitiser as they are usually sold out in a lot of stores, as the demand has grown substantially since COVID-19. Just before the NZ Lockdown, I went to several supermarkets, hardware stores and other shops to see if I could get a few hand sanitisers nz but it proved to be quite a difficult exercise.  When I finally did get hold of the last 2 bottles, I almost felt like a shoplifter at the checkout as the other stared at me for taking the last precious bottles. 

Even the ingredients to make hand sanitiser at home were all gone. A lot of people had seen the WHO hand sanitiser formulation and had bought a lot of the ingredients like Ethanol, isopropyl or rubbing alcohol, aloe vera and other such items. If you search for hand sanitiser homemade in Google, you will see a whole lot more recipes. The only issue with this was that how would you know the hand sanitiser you made was actually going to be effective in killing the bacteria and stopping the virus? There are some inherent dangers in making these yourself, perhaps something best left for the professionals and lab testing. 

With that in mind, we were very excited when one of our supplies called us to say that they had a consignment of hand sanitisers. As we love our customers (yes all of you), we wanted to be able to offer this scarce commodity especially for yourselves. Rather than having to go hunt for hand sanitiser in stores and supermarkets, we wanted to get you hand sanitiser online so you can hand sanitiser buy online . So we have just introduced the Novogel hand sanitiser online product below.
