The formulas are very similar except for the active, Benzalkonium chloride, found in Working Hands Anti-bacterial Hand Cream, which kills 99.9% of germs in under 1 minute. The Anti-bacterial variant also has Eucalyptus Leaf Extract which has a sanitizing effect. Working Hands Intensive contains Sodium PCA while Anti-Bacterial has Shea Butter, both ingredients moisturise skin. Anti-Bacterial also contains Rosemary and Lavender essential oils.

NS Working Hands Anti-bacterial does not contain ethanol, an alcohol, used at a high percentage to kill germs. Alcohol, at this level can be very drying on the hands. NS Working Hands Anti-bacterial does not contain petroleum but uses natural active ingredients to restore dry hands. NS Working Hands Anti-bacterial also contains Dimethicone, a skin protectant, which locks-irritants out, and moisture-in, even though hand washing.

 Phenoxyethanol is an ingredient used to ensure that there is a robust preservative system at work in our NS products. Phenoxyethanol ensures that no bacteria, fungus or mould

gets into our products, which can in turn and negatively affect your skin. It is critical that our products are 100% safe for you to use and so an effective preservative system is essential, especially for NS products because they contain a high percentage of highly active ingredients.  Phenoxyethanol is used at low levels in our products (it is only ever used at less than 1%). Some preservatives need to be used at higher levels, which can adversely affect the skin, while some natural preservative systems can be prohibitively expensive, which would make our products unaffordable. Plunkett’s uses Phenoxyethanol in NS products to achieve an effective and affordable preservative system, so that our products have a 3-year shelf life, and do not require refrigeration. NS products give you peace of mind because our products are safe to use.
