A sanitizing gel is an alcohol-based solution that cleanses without rinsing and drying hands.

A good sanitizer contains denatured ethyl alcohol in a percentage ranging from 60-80%. Once a sufficient amount of product is poured onto the palm of the hand, it evaporates quickly in contact with the air, neutralizing bacteria and dirt .

Depending on how and how much the hands are used and the conditions in which they are found, there will be a greater or lesser duration of effectiveness. In any case, it is advisable not to exceed the application since the alcoholic derivatives of the solution can sensitize and irritate the epidermis.
