70% Ethyl Alcohol
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol when soap and water are not available. We’ve exceeded those requirements to offer better efficacy – our products work harder to kill the most germs. The active ingredient in our hand sanitizers is 70% ethyl alcohol which kills 99.99% of germs that may cause illness. We source from suppliers who offer ethyl alcohol at the high quality necessary for over-the-counter drug products. Most of the ethyl alcohol used in our PURELL® products is plant derived.
