Can Betel Leaf Extract Be Used As A Hand Sanitizer?
Hello, I got information that betel leaf can be used as natural hand sanitizer by boiling it first until the extract comes out. Is that right? thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Until now, hand sanitizers that were recommended for use were only hand sanitizers containing at least 60% alcohol. Betel leaf cooking water is also not known to have the effect of killing bacteria or viruses so it cannot and is not recommended to be used as a hand sanitizer. We recommend buying hand sanitizers that are standardized or if you want to make your own hand sanitizers, make sure you use alcohol and make sure to use the appropriate amount so that the hand sanitizer that you make still has at least 60% alcohol content.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
