New avian flu virus (strain) protection: hydroalcoholic hand sanitizing gels


To protect yourself against avian influenza (in the absense of washing facilities) you can  use alcohol sanitizer in these situations: 
  • after shaking hands
  • exchanging money
  • before eating
  • after using the bathroom
  • touching of a doorknob
  • pushing elevator buttons
  • answering a telephone
  • contacting other in public areas

Hydroalcoholic gels basically contain four major ingredients:
  • alcohol
  • water
  • rheology modifier
  • neutralizer

[ See Alcohol Sanitizing Gel 1 Formulation (with 4 ingredients) ]

The effectiveness of the sanitizer using alcohol depends on the amount and type of alcohol. 

The FDA recommendation:
• Ethanol at 60-95 v/v%
• Isopropanol at 70-91.3 v/v%.

Below is another hydroalcoholic hand sanitizing gel formulation:
