Hand sanitizer 80% alcohol
Why choose 80% ethyl (ethanol) alcohol hand sanitizer? Ethyl vs. Isopropyl Even though Ethyl and Isopropyl Alcohol both kill bacteria, Ethyl alcohol at concentrations of 80%, is a much more potent virucidal agent inactivating fungus, all lipophilic viruses(e.g. herpes, vaccinia, and influenza virus) and many hydrophilic viruses(e.g. adenovirus, enterovirus, rhinovirus and rotaviruses). Isopropyl alchohol is excluded from classification as a high-level disinfectant because of itsinability to eradicate bacterialspores and hydrophilic virusessuch as polio or the Flu. 80% vs. Other Percentages Higher or lower than 80% concentration both have disadvantages.
