How to choose the best hand sanitizer?
Some studies show that antibacterial dry hand sanitizer is considered safe for the skin and provides the highest antibacterial effect if containing alcohol-based active ingredients at the following concentrations:
Ethanol (60% – 85%)
Isopropanol (60% – 80%)
N-propanol (60% – 80%)
In addition, the ingredients do not contain dyes, essential oils, odorants, … because it is easy to irritate the skin. Because alcohol is very flammable, therefore they should be stored away from high temperatures and flames.
