This is an ethanol based hand sanitizer manufactured following the CDC recomendation of using an alcohol concentration of more than 60 % v/v alcohol when soap and water is not available.
It is manufactured by gelling a 70 % ethanol solution with the the minimum of an acrylate polymer to create a clear gel that is easy to apply and does not evaporate as readiliy as the liquid versions to provide sufficient dwell time to be effective.
The hand sanitizer is manufactured using only the following United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) grade ingredients in the preparation of the product::
- Alcohol (ethanol) (USP or Food Chemical Codex (FCC) grade) (80%, volume/volume (v/v)) in an aqueous solution denatured according to Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau regulations in 27 CFR part 20.
- Glycerin (1.00 % v/v)..
- Polypropylene Glycol (1.2 % v/v)..
- Acrylate Polymer (0.3% v/v).
- Sterile distilled water or boiled cold water.
