It certainly is not as gentle as glycerin soap, but I've been using Lava soap
to wash clay off my hands.  It's kinda abrasive, but works great.

When I don't feel like going to the sink to wash my hands while I'm
working with  the clay, I use baby wipes, followed by some rubbing ***
on a dish towel to take off the excess 'baby wipe stuff', which I don't
like having on my hands.
I found a terrific (soap &water) hand cleaner at the Walmart Automotive
Dept. called "Gojo Natural Orange Pumice Hand Cleaner"  It contains a
'petroleum-free citrus ingredient', 'baby oil and other emollients' along
with pumice grains.  A 14oz squeeze bottle cost about $2.  It really gets
out the ground-in clay out of your hands, and is gentler than Lava soap.
It smells good too; like oranges.

"Wet Ones" moist towelettes. One of the few left that still contain
***. Good for cleaning tools too. Wipe your hands with these then
use soap & water. It's a good idea to use a hand cream if you are
finished and not going to go back to the poly clay.

Wee Folk, Inc. carry a waterless hand cleaner called SaniTuff.  It is
wonderful--has saved me thousands, maybe millions, of steps upstairs from
my studio [aka:  dungeon].  It is reasonable, and even while I make
hundreds of ornaments, the bottle lasts me from 3 to 4 months--I put it
in a pump bottle and use only a "partial pump"--i.e., a little goes a
long way.  It, also has a nice orange smell--but it doesn't have the
pumice.  I use the pumice stuff as my last handwash of the evening.
