Though not necessarily the sexiest item in your beauty rotation, hand sanitisers and washes have become the standard, necessary staple to thwart off unwanted bacteria and germs in light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

The health authorities of Singapore state that washing your hands with soap and water is good enough to kill germs and viruses. Why? We may inadvertently touch vulnerable open areas such as our eyes, nose or mouth, even while wearing a mask, says Dr Leong Hoe Nam, an infectious disease specialist. But if you don’t have a hand wash and wash basin at bay, hand sanitisers are appropriate choices for when you are out and about. 

If you’re unable to get your hands (pun intended) on these germ-busting liquids at the moment, here are 8 of them that are still available to shop for right now, at time of writing.
