I use this primarily for removing garden dirt, oil, grease, and paint (both oil and water based) from my hands.
The polychips in the cleanser are really good for removing the dirt. There is also a moisturiser in the product to ensure that essential oils are not removed from the hands, drying them out.
It helps, if you really work the cleanser into your hands for a few minutes before immersing them in water to rinse off the cleanser. Pour a small line directly onto a nail brush before running it under your nails.
Once the dirty job is over, and you have cleaned your hands and nails properly, there should be no lingering irritation. Your dirty job will rapidly become a distant memory.
I have been using Comma Manista Hand Cleaner for several years and it is by far the best product on the market. It is far superior to Swarfega or any of the other cleaners you see in stores. Get the squeeze pack, to maintain hygiene rather than the tubs where people put their hands in.
For frequent users, or for a group of people, invest in the 3litre version and pump.Comma MAN3L Manista Natural CleanserComma MAN3LP 3L Manista Pump
Amazon and the Internet appear to be the only place you can get this product now, as it seems to have disappeared from the high street.
