Hand sanitiser legal requirements?

In the UK, hand gels should comply with the EU Biocides Regulation 528/2012.

They should be able to prove that the product matches the claims, so if a product makes a certain claim, such as it kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, then it should fulfil that claim.

Why is alcohol important in hand sanitiser?

The alcohol found in hand sanitisers is usually ethanol, isopropanol or a mixture of the two.

Alcohol destroys viruses and bacteria by dissolving the outer layer which inactivates them.

This is how it kills the COVID-19 virus.

Ethanol is what you get in drinking alcohol, while isopropanol is what’s more commonly known as ‘rubbing alcohol’.

At the right percentage (at least 60% by volume, according to the WHO) both will have the same sanitising effect on bacteria and viruses.

However, if the hand sanitiser doesn’t contain a high enough percentage of alcohol, then it won’t be able to kill off the bacteria and viruses on your hands effectively.
