The ingredients of the hand sanitizer are not thick enough, what should I do?

You can use thickening fluid. This type of product is non-toxic, non-irritating, and has good water solubility and compatibility with many components. They have excellent lubricity, moisture retention, dispersibility, adhesives, antistatic agents and softeners.

This passage is going to talk about the following questions of hand sanitizer:

(1)How to thicken hand sanitizer?

(2)Warnings About Alcohol-Based Hand sanitizers

(3)Why is drinking hand sanitizer dangerous?

(4)Can disinfecting wipes remove bacteria?


(1)How to thicken hand sanitizer?

Potassium chloride can thicken, but not that thick. The special thickening powder for hand sanitizer is easily soluble in water and has excellent thickening properties. It is widely used as thickening of various water phase products. Used as thickener, antistatic, solubilizer, emulsifier in cosmetics, textile, plastics and other industries. This thickening powder is used for the thickening of shampoos, liquid soaps, and liquid detergents. It can significantly increase the consistency of shampoos, has a conditioning and softening effect on hair, prevents hair from drying out, and also reduces static electricity. But this is generally used to make hand sanitizer in the industry.

(2)Warnings About Alcohol-Based Hand sanitizers

Is hand sanitizer poisonous? Although the use of alcohol-based disinfectants is strongly recommended, if certain ingredients are used in the formulation, they do bring some risks and may be toxic. In fact, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the FDA warned that methanol is an unsafe toxic ingredient that can cause nausea, headaches, blurred vision, and in extreme cases can permanently damage the nervous system.

Other potential risks of using certain hand sanitizers include:

Swallowing can cause alcoholism

Not always safe for children

Harmful ingestion by pets

Skin may be itchy or red after use

May cause irritation in eyes

Improve sensitivity to UV

Extremely flammable

You should never rinse the hand sanitizer or pour it into the drain, because that might be harmful to our water. If you are concerned about any of these side effects, it is best to use a disinfectant made from organic ingredients. There are many options, so be sure to check the labels and choose the one that suits you best!


(3)Why is drinking hand sanitizer dangerous?

It is estimated that there are 1,500 types of bacteria on every square centimeter of our skin. Alcohol-based disinfectants will reduce the bacteria on your hands by 97.72% on average. But consuming any hand sanitizer is extremely dangerous, especially alcohol-based hand sanitizer. This not only leads to alcoholism, but the intentional or unintentional ingestion of alcohol can also lead to death in some cases.

However, what is shocking is that minors in the United States are drinking disinfectants like water. The American Association of Poison Control Centers (American Association of Poison Control Centers) reported more than 19,000 incidents in 2014 alone, and it seems that this trend is still a problem today.

Remember, there is a reason you cannot order "sanitizer" from the beverage menu. Use it responsibly and only put it in your hands!


(4)Can disinfecting wipes remove bacteria?

Hand sanitizing wipes containing at least 60% alcohol will kill bacteria on your hands. Baby wipes are not designed to remove bacteria from your hands and CDC does not recommend that you use them to clean your hands. They may make your hands look clean, but baby wipes and similar products that do not contain at least 60% alcohol will not reliably remove bacteria from your hands.

Sanitizing wipes are designed to kill bacteria on the surface. Do not use disinfectant wipes to clean your skin, as they may cause irritation. Be sure to read and follow the instructions on the label to use these products safely.

It is safer to use hand sanitizer to wash your hands.
