The outbreak of Coronavirus is resulting in a significant spike in the market growth rate of disinfectant products. Hand sanitisers are recognised to offer an effective means to kill or decrease a range of germs on the go, applied frequently as required, with no need for rinsing or drying.
This is where chemistry comes to the rescue. A relatively simple formulation, hand sanitisers offer disinfection as well as hydration and care benefits. Our hero ingredients are:
- Ethanol/ isopropyl alcohol (IPA): recommended at concentration of 60% to 95% for greatest germicidal efficacy for alcohol based formulations
- Rheology modifiers: thickeners, gelling agents
- Emollients (eg Glycerine): for a smooth and pleasant sensory feel
- pH Adjusters
Brenntag offers a wide range of products for any formulating brief. Whether you are looking to develop an alcohol or non-alcohol based sanitiser, we offer ingredients and formulatory advice to help you get your product to market quickly and successfully.
