Alcohol-based versions typically contain some combination of isopropyl alcohol, ethanol (ethyl alcohol), or n-propanol, with versions containing 60% to 95% alcohol the most effective. Care should be taken as they are flammable. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer works against a wide variety of microorganisms but not spores.
What Hand Sanitizer is safe?
To be safe, a hand sanitizer should be alcohol-based, containing at least 60 percent ethanol, (our 5L Hand sanitiser is 75%) also known as ethyl alcohol. Methanol, according to the FDA, “is not an acceptable active ingredient for hand sanitizer products and can be toxic.”
