What is Hand Sanitiser?

Hand Sanitiser is a liquid, gel, or foam designed to kill infectious agents on the hands and other surfaces. Hand Sanitiser gel has become the go-to for hand washing in the COVID-19 pandemic and is found in hospitals, care homes, as well as domestic and commercial properties. It’s effective for killing a range of bacteria and viruses. 

Hand Sanitiser typically contains ethyl alcohol or isopropyl alcohol concentrations ranging from 60% to 95%, sometimes combined with a moisturising agent to prevent the gel from drying out the hands. Alcohol-based Hand Sanitisers generally perform best among most standard-grade skin cleaners.
