Its main assets are ethyl and isopropyl alcohol (between 60% and 95%) although it can also be formulated with benzalkonium chloride or chlorhexidine. Alcohol can be aggressive and therefore excipients such as panthenol, propylene glycol or glycerin are added. There are premium hydroalcoholic gels, enriched with pink pepper or floral notes, more typical of a perfume than of a disinfectant, such as jasmine, vetiver, rose or bergamot.

HOW IS HYDROALCOHOLIC GEL APPLIED?

First of all it is important to apply it with dry hands because the water reduces the effectiveness. The proper volume is between two and three milliliters (the application of a common dispenser). It should be spread over the entire surface of the hand with emphasis on the interdigital spaces and then it takes between 15 and 20 seconds for drying. The time that must elapse to reapply the gel depends on each manufacturer, but in general it is not recommended to reapply until after six hours. Important! Faced with rumors, the UN has had to deny that spraying alcohol or chlorine on the body protects against the coronavirus.
