SANITIZERS


INTRODUCTION

Liquid hand sanitizers - mostly alcohol-based gels - have enjoyed an explosion in popularity in the last 10 years. If you have traveled by airplane or set foot in a classroom in the US lately, chances are you have seen hand sanitizers in use.

Hand sanitizers do not serve as a replacement for thorough handwashing. Instead, they are thought to bring consumers some of the benefits of handwashing when handwashing is not practical.

The relationship between hand sanitizer use and reduced illness has not been firmly established by epidemiological studies, but several laboratory studies suggest hand sanitizers help to prevent infections by killing transient pathogenic bacteria.

Handwashing and hand sanitizers reduce microbial populations in different ways. Handwashing - whether done with "antibacterial" soap or plain soap - physically removes microorganisms from the skin, literally washing the live microbes down the drain. Hand sanitizers reduce levels of microorganisms by killing them chemically, just like disinfectants kill germs on environmental surfaces.

The magnitude of the effect of handwashing is mainly a function of wash time and soap usage. Washing hands without soap is much less effective. Effectiveness from hand sanitizers is best when a large volume of product is applied to the hands. Applying a large volume of hand sanitizer ensures excess active ingredient and extends the period of chemical activity before the hand sanitizer evaporates.

Unlike disinfectants, which may be left practically on surfaces for up to about 5 minutes, hand sanitizers must do their job within a brief period of time to produce the necessary effect. The reality is that most people just won't tolerate wet hands for more than about 30 seconds. Accordingly, Microchem Laboratory believes that 30 seconds - maybe one minute in special cases - should be the contact time limit for laboratory testing of hand sanitizers.

Hand sanitizers may be powered by a number of different active ingredients, but have you ever noticed that most hand sanitizers use alcohol as the active ingredient? That is largely a result of how they are regulated.

The foam based hand sanitizer segment is expected to dominate the market with a revenue based CAGR of 23 1 from 2020 to 2027 The product is gaining prominence in the market owing to its ability to penetrate the skin and stay there for longer period of time Foam based sanitizers provide easy application on hands as it does not needs to get rubbed off and thus provides the convenience of saving time This product is expected to witness surge in demand owing to its greater convenience of handling.
