Say goodbye to red raw, dry cracked hands
When you combine avoiding the ingredients in the bases of gel and foam sanitisers and the harsh surfactants in most hand washes with introducing soothing naturals such as cucumber seed oil, avocado, and rice amino acids your hands will have a fighting chance of avoiding the cracks, sores and dermatitis that is currently effecting so many people.

Frequently Asked Questions
You buy one, we donate one via our partners The Hygiene Bank to send to children in UK in hygiene poverty.
Giving back is a part of the Proverb ethos of living Lifefuelled and we couldn’t have ask for a better partner to help keep those most vulnerable safe.
Proverb Sanitiser is 70% alcohol and complies with all WHO and UK Government standards and BS EN 126:2019 to help protect you. Our 50ml sanitiser is amazing to put in bags and coat pockets for when you are out and about. As a spray sanitiser, it is easy to spray objects you are about to touch and very easy to use on children. Customers love using this product and you are more likely to use a product if you love it – which in itself, should make you feel safer. However, do not use this in replacement of washing hands. Use this product alongside UK government, and WHO advice during Covid-19. Sanitisers are an addition to the precautions you should be taking.
Will it dry out my hands? You can’t make a sanitiser that is not drying to the skin. Ignore brands that tell you otherwise, as they are just telling you the marketing you want to hear. Remember, Proverb stands for statements of truth! We get a lot of feedback that this sanitiser is not drying and has not aggravated hands with eczema or psoriasis. As skin experts we know that If you have 60/70% plus of alcohol, this is going to cause dry skin. A good formulation, like Proverb, will add other ingredients to try and reduce this impact, leaving your hands less sore. Our professional advice would be to always use a very good hand moisturiser frequently, alongside all your sanitising. Ideally, plant butter and plant oil based, not paraffinium liquidum with added humectants like glycerine.
Do you have other sizes? For the Sanitiser – yes, it comes in a 50ml spray suitable for pockets, travelling, hand and gym bags. A 250ml spray which is great for at home, in the kitchen or on your desk. There is then a 1 litre and 5 litre refill you can use to refill the 50ml and 250ml bottles. For the Hand Wash and Hand Lotion there is not a larger size currently on our website but they do exist as we sell them to our spas. Please email us if you need some!

Natural & organic? Entirely natural with organic ingredients. Most brands would happily say 100%. Proverb means truth. All emulsions made in the UK have to have a preservative. We use the organic certification allowed preservative dehydroacetic acid. Although you are allowed to label it natural it isn’t truly. There is 0.6% in the bottle as legally required.
Our dedication to natural & organic Greenwashing brands pretending to be natural, is rife and only getting worse. We will only ever tell you the truth about our ingredients, the sources and which elements are natural, organic or the legal required preservatives. We formulate with painstaking dedication to this mantra for your health but also as it ensures the elite grown version of each ingredient.
Made in England? Yes, formulated and made in England where our headquarters are. Ingredients are sourced sustainably from around the world. Lifefuelled humans using the products globally.
In vitro & in vivo lab proven actives? Yes, we have selected many active ingredients with strong in vitro and in vivo testing results for the individual ingredients. Combining this with researching the source, origins and ethics of each ingredient.
‘Clean’ brands tend to be younger and newer to market and thus don’t usually invest the large amount of funds needed to clinically trial products to prove results in an independent lab. Not us; we are firmly committed to do this as the clean, organic and natural sector has to prove it works. As we grow the brand, we will grow the investment into clinical testing as a priority but below are our test results so far!
