Is your Hand Sanitizer Dangerous?

Aug 4, 2020 by CenTrial

Some hand sanitizers are not effective

Hand sanitizers are an important part of COVID-19 hygiene, but some brands are ineffective, and others can be toxic or even deadly.

Products containing methanol can be toxic when absorbed through your skin and can be deadly if swallowed.

Other hand sanitizers may have levels of ethyl alcohol or isopropyl alcohol that are so low the product is ineffective.

Nearly all the defective sanitizers on the FDA's warning list were manufactured in Mexico. They have since been banned from being imported.

If you do not have access to soap and water, make sure the hand sanitizer you use has at least 60% alcohol.
