FAQs- Hand Sanitizer
How much alcohol is in the product? Is that the active ingredient?
The product contains 60–70% ethanol, which is the active ingredient.
Do hand sanitizers have an expiration date? Are they still effective after the expiration date?
Yes, the expiration is 3 years. We can’t say how effective they are after the expiration date as our stability tests are typically performed to predict a 3-year shelf life.
Are hand sanitizer dangerous for children? What is the age recommendation?
Recommended for children 2 years of age and older. Hand sanitizer can be a good way for children to clean their hands when soap and water are not available. But some young children may swallow hand sanitizer, which can be dangerous. If toddlers or older children use hand sanitizer, please supervise them until the hand sanitizer is dry, and never let a child lick their hands immediately after applying.

What percentage of germs does the hand sanitizer kill?

Does the hand sanitizer kill the resident and transient germs on your hands?
Alcohol from a hand sanitizer vaporizes immediately leaving no residual effect to deactivate microorganisms onward. Alcohol-based sanitizers spontaneously kill the transient pathogens along with some surface resident skin microflora. Normal or resident skin microflora is skin deep and continues to shed, along with dead skin cells, and yet maintains its balance on healthy skin. Washing hands with soap and water is the best control in prevention or spreading an infection. Sanitizers are not intended to replace thorough hand washing with soap and water.
