Hand sanitiser is a liquid, gel, or foam generally used to decrease infectious agents on the hands. It contains antiseptic ingredients - a substance that is used on the skin to kill and prevent the growth of microorganisms.
Alcohol or ethanol is the main ingredient used in hand sanitiser but it usually also contains water, fragrance and glycerol .
To use hand sanitiser, apply a 5-cent size piece to dry hands, rub over all surfaces of the hands until product is absorbed.
No, hand sanitisers are manufactured using a special formulation to kill or prevent the growth of microorganisms and whilst avoiding any skin irritation. For example St John's hand sanitiser uses the World Health Organisation's formulation, which is suitable for use in healthcare facilities. By using a carefully formulated product, it ensures the best chance of protection against bacteria.
For infants, it's recommended to just use soap and water, however, if necessary hand sanitiser is not dangerous for infants and can be applied. For children under six years of age, hand sanitiser should be used with adult supervision.
Typically, hand sanitiser expires in 2-3 years. While not dangerous to use hand sanitiser after its expiration date, it may be less effective or not effective at all. When possible, it’s best to wash your hands with soap and water.
