According to the recent relaxed regulations* around compounding hand sanitizer to meet the surge in need caused by COVID 19, there are 2 basic formulations that are permitted for manufacture and distribution by non-FDA approved facilities so long as they register with the FDA and comply strictly with the guidelines. From the guidance:
This hand sanitizer is compounded according to the following formula consistent with World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations:
Alcohol (ethanol) (formulated to 80%, volume/volume (v/v)) in an aqueous solution; or Isopropyl Alcohol (formulated to 75%, v/v) in an aqueous solution.
Glycerin (glycerol) (1.45% v/v).
Hydrogen peroxide (0.125% v/v)
Sterile distilled water or boiled cold water.
The primary virtues of these formulations are their simplicity and their efficacy. They offer next to no moisturization, save a small amount of glycerol to prevent excessive drying-out of the skin. There is explicit guidance that prohibits the use of additional gelling agent, fragrance, or moisturizer. So there it is. The bare-bones, straight to the point Bonus Formulation.
P2 Science registered with the FDA and elected to go with the 80% ethanol formulation. We now are getting as much as we can out to the community, including to
