Hand sanitizer, hand sanitizer gel

The use of hand sanitizer is becoming part of the daily norm. And global demand has grown exponentially in recent months. Hand sanitizers in liquid and gel form are being produced by manufacturing companies around the world. But what if these products that consumers believe provide real protection contain harmful chemicals or do not provide the protection they are relying on?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), consumers should use alcohol-based hand sanitizers with at least 60% ethanol. However, as market demand skyrocketed at a rapid pace, manufacturers were struggling to keep up with demand. For this reason, products with inappropriate alcohol content have flooded the market.

The shortage of hand sanitizer has allowed the introduction of alternative products or substitutes containing insufficient alcohol content into the production process. These dangerous chemicals include methanol, 1-propanol, even petroleum, and cause side effects to the human body if absorbed through the skin or swallowed—including blindness, heart problems, affects the central nervous system and even death.

Regulatory agencies, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), are currently monitoring and inspecting the influx of temporary hand sanitizer products manufactured in the United States, as well as those products into the United States, by developing guidance documents, issuing import orders. alert list and perform their own testing using Rigaku handheld Raman technology. Global focuses on the production, control and validation of hand sanitizers and handheld Raman can be a key tool in all stages of quality analysis.

Raman machine analyzes antiseptic hand sanitizer and hand gel

With the recent focus on hand sanitizer manufacturing and the potential for dangerous contaminants or substandard levels of active ingredients, manufacturers and regulators are in need of an analytical method. quick and easy to control, on-site quality validation and a means to protect their brand with anti-counterfeiting measures.

The two main active ingredients in most alcohol-based hand sanitizers available on the market are ethyl alcohol (ethanol) and isopropyl alcohol (isopropanol). These chemicals, as well as many potentially hazardous contaminants commonly found in hand sanitizer formulations, are capable of reacting with Raman spectroscopy.
