Raw Material For Hand Sanitizer?
I want to ask, can strong acid ph2,5 be used as a hand sanitizer? While the handsanitizer should be made from alcohol, thank you.
Thank you for the question.
Acid electrolyte water containing low pH such as pH 2.5 is indeed known to be used as a disinfectant against germs including viruses. However, how to use it must be in accordance with the appropriate recommendations. So far, very few studies have examined the efficacy of acid electrolyte water as a disinfectant to prevent certain diseases caused by viruses.
When we talk about the prevention of covid-19 virus that is rife that is by washing hands using a sanitizer, you should follow the advice given by WHO (World Health Organization) and CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) which are valid sources in providing covid-19 information, where it is advisable to diligently wash hands using water and soap or sanitizer with a minimum of 60% ethanol content or a minimum of 70% isopropanol.
Hopefully this information can help.
