We carry a large assortment of hand soaps from top brands in different formulas and scents in our online store and our neighborhood store locations. Explore the selection now to find the best hand soap for your needs.

Hand Soap vs. Sanitizer

Hand soap and sanitizer are both used to purify your hands and combat germs, but the products are different. Hand soap requires water. Youll need a sink to lather and rinse. Liquid hand sanitizers fight germs with antimicrobial agents. After application, the liquid evaporates, so there is no need to rinse. You can find both hand soap and hand sanitizer at Walgreens.

Products That Foam

Foaming hand soaps are a popular choice because they turn hand-washing into a luxurious experience. These hand soaps are formulated to come out of their pump bottles as a rich, luxurious foam. Thanks to their consistency, foaming hand soaps do not need to be lathered as vigorously while you wash your hands. Some people feel that foaming hand soaps leave hands feeling cleaner than other formulas. On the downside, these types of soaps may have a drying effect on the skin due to their powerful surfactants.

Antibacterial Formulas

If you're looking for extra protection from germs, antibacterial hand soaps are available. These hand soaps contain one or more antibacterial active ingredients, substances that kill bacteria found on the skin. The most effective antibacterial hand soaps can kill up to 99.9 percent of common bacteria. You can read the product descriptions to learn more about the effectiveness of various antibacterial hand soaps and to find out what ingredients they contain.

Moisturizing Options

Are you prone to dry skin? Washing your hands frequently can increase the risk of your skin becoming parched and irritated. Fortunately, there are hand soaps available to address this problem. Moisturizing hand soaps contain hydrating ingredients that replenish moisture while washing away germs. These soaps often have a consistency similar to hand lotion and produce only a light lather. You might also consider using a hand moisturizer following washing.

Money-Saving Refills

Most hand soaps come in pump bottles for ease and convenience. Some brands also sell hand soap in larger bottles with twist-off lids. These products are intended to serve as refills for the smaller pump bottles. Purchasing hand soap refills is cost efficient due to the size of the supply offered in a single bottle. Plus, refills reduce plastic waste.
