LifestyleSkin careAugust 16, 2020

The Coronavirus is still around, and we have to learn how to live with this new reality. Virtually, all specialists and doctors give us a simple recipe on how to avoid contagion of COVID 19; hand sanitizers, distance and use of a mask. Therefore, from now on, we will have to continue to keep our hands clean. It means, whenever possible, wash them with soap for 20 seconds because it is the best hand disinfectant at all. But we will also have to carry a hand antiseptic with us, for when we cannot wash our hands, and to clean surfaces such as door handles, car steering, bottles of water or soda we bought on the street.

How to choose the best hand sanitizer

The best form of hand disinfectant is in spray, ideal for surfaces and skin. It is a product that will be in contact with your skin, and often with things we take to the mouth. It is, therefore, essential for the hand antiseptic to be safe for your health but efficient against germs.

Hand sanitizers prohibited by the FDA

Recently the FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) listed 59 sanitizers based on Methanol (a toxic ingredient that absorbed by the skin can cause severe problems for your health). According to the FDA, these hand sanitizers claim to be Ethanol but do in reality contain Methanol. Several cases link the use of Methanol with blindness, hospitalisations and can be life-threatening if ingested.

Methanol is very dangerous and is used in antifreeze and fuel production.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, exposure can also cause nausea, headaches, dizziness, agitation, amnesia, coma and seizures.

That is the hand sanitizer that we recommend

To make sure that the hand sanitizer you choose is the best to be in contact with your skin and eventually with your eyes and mouth, make sure it does not contain alcohol.
