This formulation meets the criteria for safe and effective alcohol hand rubs set by the World Health Organisation. A combination of ethanol and isopropyl alcohol is used which especially effective against lipid-membrane pathogens like COVID-19, bacteria and fungi. When the formulation comes into contact with micro-organisms it denatures the molecular structure of the cell proteins and effectively kills them. The active ingredients then evaporate and emollients remain on your skin leaving it moisturised, soft and germ-free. The hand sanitiser does not cause drying of the skin as most alcohol-based hand rubs do.
