[BKARTS] What Purell does

Purell dispensers ... post-Purell work would yellow much faster than my standard post-soap work ... just kills germs

The sole purpose of Purell and like sanitizers is to temporarily reduce the number of skin surface germs. It does nothing about oil gland production. When it first came out, the accompanying recommendation for health care workers was to wash hands thoroughly, with soap and water, after every 4 to 6 applications to remove residue and dead germs. Also, it is quite high in alcohol, so it has a drying and cracking effect.
