Local brand French Lemon launches antibacterial collection to help protect against COVID-19

Keep those hands clean!

By Good Housekeeping

People the world over are washing their hands more frequently to help protect themselves against the fast-spreading COVID-19 virus. South African brand French Lemon is doing its part by launching an antibacterial collection to increase the effectiveness of their products against germs.
The collection consists of lotions, soaps, gels and hand sanitisers that clean, nourish, moisturise and soothe skin. One of the key ingredients in this range is essential oils, which are incredible disinfectants due to their strong antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. The French Lemon antibacterial collection includes lemon oil, with its antiseptic and refreshing properties; peppermint oil for its microbial properties; bergamot oil for its prevention of infection with antibiotic properties; and tea-tree oil for its antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties.

Products include an Anti-bacterial Lotion, which not only cleanses but also hydrates, as well as Anti-Bacterial Shea & Glycerine Soap Bars (pictured below). A powerful cleansing agent designed to get rid of bacteria, the Anti-bacterial Castile Soap is a liquid soap that is gentle on skin, and while it cleanses it also restores moisture without leaving skin dry. This is vital, as the constant hand washing that we are all doing now can leave hands dry and chapped.


In order to effectively protect against germs, it is advised that you wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. Wet your hands, use soap, then close the running water and start the washing process. Be sure to wash the backs of the hands, in between the fingers, your thumbs and your wrists. If you are unable to wash your hands with soap and water, sanitiser can be used.

Like all their products, French Lemon’s newest collection is cruelty-free, making it a more conscious choice. Plus you don’t need to worry about not finding these products on your shelves, as the French Lemon antibacterial collection is available exclusively online at
