How to Choose a Safe Hand Sanitizer - CHI Health and Care

Hand sanitizer manufacturing has exploded to meet demand in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, but did you know that some products in the market could actually be potentially toxic, according to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA)? Yes, you read right.

The FDA recently issued an advisory warning against using hand sanitizer products from a Mexico-based manufacturer known as Eskbiochem because it discovered methanol in some of its products. Methanol is extremely toxic if it’s absorbed by the skin or ingested.

So, with the flood of new products on the market, how can you be sure the hand sanitizer you’re buying is safe to use? Ahead, we’re breaking down do’s and don’ts when buying a hand sanitizer. Plus, see why CHI Natural Gardens Moisturizing Hand Sanitizers and Biosilk Moisturizing Hand Sanitizers are among the safest to use when cleaning your hands in a pinch.

Q

Don’t use a hand sanitizer that contains methanol—also known as wood  alcohol—due to its toxic effects, according to the FDA. Substantial exposure can cause nausea, vomiting, headaches, and more.

R

Do use CHI Natural Gardens Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer, Biosilk Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer and Biosilk Aloe Vera Hand Sanitizer instead because it contains Ethyl Alcohol to kill 99.9% of germs.

Q

Avoid hand sanitizers that contain less than 60% alcohol as it’s not effective to reduce germs, per the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

R

Look for hand sanitizers that exceed the CDC requirements like the CHI Natural Gardens Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer, Biosilk Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer and Biosilk Aloe Vera Hand Sanitizer, which contains 77% v/v Ethyl Alcohol.

Q

Skip out on hand sanitizers with harsh bacteria-killing ingredients that can cause dryness or skin irritation.

R

Opt for hand sanitizers with natural, moisturizing ingredients instead. CHI Natural Gardens Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer, Biosilk Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer and Biosilk Aloe Vera Hand Sanitizer are 92% natural with organically grown aloe vera to keep hands soft and hydrated.
