  • More than 85% of the currently marketed hand sanitizer products are alcohol-based products, and the alcohol content is usually about 70% in order to be effective. The high alcohol content can cause dehydration, which is undesirable for sensitive skin, particularly for children. This creates opportunities for the development of innovative hand sanitizer products that are free of alcohol and have green nano-cellulose-based materials as carriers for the antibacterial agents. Good skin affinity and biocompatibility are the special features of the newly developed products, which would satisfy the need of the general public for green products.

Abstract: More than 85% of the currently marketed hand sanitizer products are alcohol-based products, and the alcohol content is usually about 70% in order to be effective. The high alcohol content can cause dehydration, which is undesirable for sensitive skin, particularly for children. This creates opportunities for the development of innovative hand sanitizer products that are free of alcohol and have green nano-cellulose-based materials as carriers for the antibacterial agents. Good skin affinity and biocompatibility are the special features of the newly developed products, which would satisfy the need of the general public for green products.
