Beautiful protection

I love the fresh and protective aroma blend and it’s so easy to carry every day

Good product

I much prefer sprays to just squeezing bottles as you can judge the amount better.

An absolute lifesaver

I have always used NY hand cleansers and I was so happy when the natural defence hand spray came out during covid. I’ve used it repeatedly ever since as I travel frequently on public transport and I really don’t know what I would have done without it. I’ve given family and friends a small bottle and they are welcome to replenish it from the larger 200ml bottles that I frequently order. I take some with me wherever I go. Thank you Neals Yard!

The Best Smelling Hand Spray!

Such a great hand sanitizer, has been my go to since it was first on the shelves of Neal’s Yard. Wonderful smell, smooth application, no sticky residue, just top notch

Natural Defence

Love this hand spray, it smell divine, no nasty chemicals and it does not dry your skin. The refill is really good value once you’ve bought the handbag size spray.

Smells divine and doesn’t dry skin out

This is the best sanitiser ever. Others are scented to try and mask the strong alcoholic smell but this one smells truly divine - I always gets asked what that nice smell is when I use it. Lovely to use as well as it feels as though it’s taking care of your skin rather than drying it out.
