Research Shows Hand Sanitizer With 80% Ethyl Alcohol Is The Safest

Not all hand sanitizers are created equally. Administrators and business owners have a lot on their plates right now, which is why it’s important to find a safe hand sanitizer that can help keep their students, staff, customers, and community safe, which also instills confidence in those they serve.

Did you know that hand sanitizer with less than 80% ethyl alcohol does not kill the coronavirus with a single application? Read on to learn more.

Hand Sanitizer With 80% Ethyl Alcohol Kills Germs In Less Than 15 Seconds

Leading brands of hand sanitizer that use less than 80% alcohol, require two applications in order to stop the spread of COVID-19. This leads to an application process taking around 90 seconds, which is far longer than what the average person would like to spend rubbing in sanitizer.

However, hand sanitizers that contain 80% ethyl alcohol destroy COVID-19 within 15 seconds or less in a single application.

Using hand sanitizer with less than 80% alcohol doesn’t protect your health as effectively. The WHO (World Health Organization) cites that the approved and recommended sanitizer formula includes a final concentration of ethanol 80% v/v, glycerol 1.45% v/v, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) 0.125% v/v. [1] This alcohol content is needed in all effective hand sanitizers to prevent the spread of germs.

If you’re using hand sanitizers without the proper germ-killing ingredients, like ethanol or isopropyl alcohol, you will not have COVID-19 protection. Which is why the most effective hand sanitizers contain alcohol. The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends sanitizers with 60-95% alcohol in most healthcare settings, but once again any sanitizer below 80% needs to be applied for 90 seconds.
