Meet hand sanitiser brand, Purdy & Figg

Purdy & Figg Gift Box

Hand sanitiser brand, Purdy & Figg, have opened a pop-up shop in Aldeburgh for the festive period!

Purdy & Figg was created by two friends in their sixties who wanted to reduce the number of toxic chemicals we use on our skin. NHS nurse Purdy Rubin and horticulturist Charlotte Figg believe in the power of natural cleaning and decided to start producing products in Purdy’s garage.

At the end of last year, Purdy’s sons Charlie and Jack asked if the pair could make them a hand sanitiser for the winter. The sanitisers they were using were sticky, dehydrating and smelt toxic, so Purdy and Charlotte set out to create a product that was a joy to use. Little did they know that the timing was just right and that these products would be flying off the shelves!

Purdy & Figg hand sanitisers are made with 70% pharmaceutical grade alcohol and pure essential oils. The range includes Original Citrus, Charlotte’s Floral, Wild Woody and Frankincense and Myrrh for Christmas.

I was invited down to the pop-up shop at 152 in Aldeburgh to try out the products and I was so impressed! The packaging is beautifully designed with a sustainable focus. The bottles are refillable and the range includes a reusable atomiser that is perfect for popping in your pocket or handbag.

The bottles spray just the right amount of sanitiser on to your hand and the consistency is never too slimy or sticky. They leave the hands feeling refreshed, rather than dehydrated and smell amazing. My favourite is the seasonal Frankincense and Myrrh!

The brand has a wonderful array of gifts at the pop-up shop. You can visit until 23rd December.
