Fig -01- One of well known brands sold in supermarket


Hand sanitizer is one of items which are empty from stores at the early and peak of Covid 19 pandemic.


It seems that we may find it easily in many stores now. I noticed the price quite higher compared to before pandemic.


Some well known brands in the market are:

- Purell

- Equate

- Casey Jones

- Hoosier hand sanitizer

- MCMC hand sanitizing

- New Holland hand sanitizer

- Scully’s hand sanity

- Dr Brite hand sanitizer


Fig – 02 - Equate is one of made in USA brands


What are hand sanitizer brands good for you?


My own opinion that the brand is not important, the most crucial is whether the brands follow the recommendation and guidelines from two prominent agencies:


- The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

- Food and Drug Administration (FDA)


Fig – 03 - Active ingredient, disposable wipe for germs


CDC recommend to use either soap or hand sanitizer. The sanitizer should contain certain amount of ethanol or isopropanol:

- 60% ethanol

- 70% isopropanol


FDA guidelines for using of ethanol or isopropanol are quite higher, between 75% to 95%.


The agency also recommend using of active ingredients such as:

- hydrogen peroxide

- glycerine


Be careful with wood alcohol called as methanol. This alcohol is poison to skin, and could be fatal if consumed by kids.


There are about 75 brand names have been recalled, because they are toxic sanitizers and misled consumers.


If you wonder, please go to FDA website to get full list of dangerous brands of hand sanitizers.


Finally, what brands of your hand sanitizer?

  4. Thanks for sharing. I just read that the FDA says there are some out there that should be recalled. Any that contain methanol, it is toxic. Take care, enjoy your day!

  5. Great post! We have used most of those products. We are still finding shortages here and end up getting the product available. Even though we use the one in the car, we still wash our hands thoroughly when home. I find that I sing the Happy Birthday song every time I wash my hands as that is what I taught my little Granddaughter to do while washing!! LOL!

  14. I bought an ample amount of hand sanitizer before the Pandemic started and still have some. I agree, it's not important the brand, it's if they work well or not. Very interesting article, thank you so much :)
