Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Why is alcohol (Isopropyl Alcohol or Ethanol) better for hand sanitizing purposes?
    Ans: The way alcohol-based hand sanitizers work is basically by busting the cell wall of germs and thus killing them. The alcohol destroy microbes in a process called protein denaturation. The structure of the proteins in the microbial cell are altered in a way that the intermolecular forces between amino side chains are disrupted. Therefore, the proteins lose their functions leading to the death of the microbe. Compared with soap and water, sanitizers are a convenient alternative when you’re on the go and can also be more effective

 

  1. Why Is 70% Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) a Better Disinfectant than 99% Isopropanol
    Ans: Isopropyl alcohol, particularly in solutions between 60% and 90% alcohol with 10 – 40% purified water, is rapidly antimicrobial against bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Once alcohol concentrations drop below 50%, usefulness for disinfection drops sharply. Notably, higher concentrations of alcohol don’t generate more desirable bactericidal, virucidal, or fungicidal properties.
    The presence of water is a crucial factor in destroying or inhibiting the growth of pathogenic microorganisms with isopropyl alcohol. Water acts as a catalyst and plays a key role in denaturing the proteins of vegetative cell membranes. 70% IPA solutions penetrate the cell wall more completely which permeates the entire cell, coagulates all proteins, and therefore the microorganism dies. Extra water content slows evaporation, therefore increasing surface contact time and enhancing effectiveness. Isopropyl alcohol concentrations over 91% coagulate proteins instantly. Consequently, a protective layer is created which protects other proteins from further coagulation.

 

  1. Is it possible to DIY your own Hand Sanitizer?
    Ans: You only need one core ingredients for this – isopropyl alcohol or ethanol, the germ killer. You can add in essential oils to fragrance your hand sanitizer e.g tea tree oil or peppermint, others often will also add in vegetable gelatine or aloe vera gel (to keep your hands moisturized). For maximum protection, it is best to use straight alcohol so as to preserve the minimum alcohol content in the sanitizer of 60~70%.
    Add all ingredients to the bottle and shake well before use. If your hands are too dry from the alcohol you can wait until all the alcohol evaporates from your hands then add your normal moisturiser.
