According to the World Health Organization (WHO), "an alcohol-containing preparation (liquid, gel or foam) designed for application to the hands to inactivate microorganisms and/or temporarily suppress their growth.
Such preparations may contain one or more types of alcohol, other active ingredients with excipients, and humectants."
Most alcohol-based hand antiseptics contain isopropanol, ethanol, n-propanol, or a combination of 2 of these products. The microorganism’s cells are then lysed, and their cellular metabolism is disrupted and killed. Alcohol solutions containing 70% to 95% alcohol are most effective.
