I’m thinking of making 50x 60mL Hand sanitizers for the clinic that I currently work at. (I’m a pharmacist) I happen to have 99.97% Ethanol at home.
Below is my formula:
70% w/w Ethanol (100%)
5% w/w 1,3-Propanediol (DuPont)
5% w/w Aloe Barbadensis extract
1% w/w Sepimax ZEN
1% w/w Tocopherol acetate
0.3% w/w Lavender oil
qs. Distilled water
However, here in Taipei (Taiwan), I can’t source Sepimax ZEN. I have Xanthan Gum... any suggestions for any other alternative thickeners suitable for this formulation? Im sorry i dont have much experience!
Also, should i add glycerin as well?
Thank you!! Any help is greatly appreciated
