Hand Sanitizers Testing

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, wearing a face mask, having a sanitizer, and hand washing wherever possible have become indispensable. As a result, various guidelines detailing the ingredients and preparation of safe and effective hand sanitizer formulations have been released by agencies and governments.

Hand sanitizer formulations exhibit ‘-cidal’ and ‘-static’ activities against a broad range of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Sanitizers act as disinfectants and can reduce the number of viable microorganisms on the skin. Since they are used on the skin, they are also classed as cosmetic products. 

What is sanitizer testing?

Sanitizer Testing can determine the efficacy and biocidal activity of sanitizer formulations. For firms manufacturing sanitizers, testing can also aid in disinfectant formulation development. For individuals, testing helps you know the hand sanitizers you should avoid using, especially if your skin is allergic to certain synthetic products.
