So, not the kind of blog title you’re used to seeing from me, but let me take just a few minutes of your time to introduce you to a new and exciting product that I’ve been testing recently: Avlo Travel & Cruise hand and skin cleanser.
The product was developed by virologists with decades of experience in antiviral research and development. They wanted to produce a natural and holistic method of blocking germs and the result was Avlo, a proprietary germ blocking protein complex combined with a soothing and moisturising lotion.
Regular cruisers will know that you can’t enter any restaurant onboard, or public lounge, without seeing a bottle of hand sanitiser. It’s there for our own protection and we should all use it. I always do, I even carry my own, but I do find that the liquid used onboard often leaves my hands very dry and that’s where Avlo comes in. It’s not designed to replace the sanitiser onboard, it’s an added shield against germs that you can use in-between, and it puts the moisture back into your skin that the alcohol gel sucks out. I’ve been using Avlo at home for the last 2 weeks, replacing my own scented sanitisers with the same Purcell liquids you find onboard, so I could ensure I was getting real results. My hands are retaining far more moisture between sanitising, simply from using the Avlo. I don’t have the rough texture on my palms or fingers that the alcohol gel often leaves behind.
I’m not a scientist, so let me share with you some FAQ’s provided by Avlo, so you can find out more about the product.
How does Avlo work?
Avlo is a proprietary combination of natural products, proteins and our patented ingredient, GermBlock, which allows Avlo to work with your skin to enhance your skin’s natural ability to shield you from germs.
Is Avlo a hand sanitiser?
Avlo is not a hand sanitiser, but can be used to enhance the germ fighting ability of hand sanitisers and hand washing with soap. When applied after hand washing, Avlo provides a durable long-lasting shield between hand washings.
How is Avlo different from other hand moisturisers?
Unlike regular hand lotions that just moisturize, Avlo goes beyond and will not only moisturise your skin, it will also help your skin’s natural barrier function and provide a long-lasting shield from germs.
How many times per day should I apply Avlo?
Avlo contains natural ingredients and proteins so it can be applied multiple times per day without risk of damage to your skin.
I’d definitely recommend this product, especially if you’re travelling with kids. You don’t need a lot per application, just a pea-sized amount, so it will last you more than the duration of your trip. It has no harsh smell or chemicals, so it should be suitable for even the most sensitive skin (the image below lists the ingredients so you can see exactly what it contains), and it doesn’t leave behind any greasy residue. It’s quite a milky cream and absorbs quickly.
