Is It Dangerous If The Hand Sanitizer Smells Bad?
Hello, I want to ask. I just bought a handsanitizer and when I tried it, why didn’t it smell bad? Though usually the smell of the handsanitizer is fragrant, I see the composition of ethanol, is it dangerous if the smell is not good? This brand is onemedi
Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.
Handsanitizer is a hand sanitizer that has the ability to kill bacteria and viruses. Although it is not as effective as washing hands with soap, it can be used if you have difficulty finding water.
To kill germs, you need 60-70% of alcohol or can also use 90% with the appropriate amount. If the content is less than 60%, it will not be too effective to kill germs. Ethanol is another name for alcohol, which is pure alcohol which is always contained in a handsanitizer. In general, the smell from the handsanitizer has a very strong odor like the smell of alcohol. It's just that according to changing times, many handsanitizers are given perfume so that the smell is more fragrant. In addition to ethanol or alcohol, the handsanitizer also contains several other ingredients, such as: Deionize Water Carbomer, TEA, PEG 40.
If you experience exfoliation and the skin feels sore after using the hadsanitizer you better stop it, and replace it with hand washing with soap. Because it is possible that there are irritants that make your skin irritated.
