Create An Optimal Hand Sanitizer Formulation
To effectively kill viruses and prevent the spread of germs, a hand sanitizer should contain 60-80% alcohol content. But the critical ingredients don’t stop there. Rheology modifiers are needed to thicken the solution into a gel that will stay on hands longer and ensure its effectiveness. As the industry leader, deliver the desired crystal-clear clarity, texture,
and flow in a formulation with excellent sensory characteristics that consumers demand.
