Sanitizer Formulation (Comments & Suggestions Please)
MechE here whose learned formulating basics from formulating water-based
adhesive for tissue/towel market (i.e. glue holding last sheet of the roll down).
Looking for comments / suggestions on hand sanitizer formulation to help fight
COVID-19 pandemic. Spray formula listed below (still working on gel):
Isopropyl Alcohol (99%)
2.5% D - Sorbitol
Sodium PCA – Ajidew NL-50 [Humectant 02]
P-20 (PPG-20 Methyl Glucose Ether) [Humectant 03]
Isopropyl Myristate [Emollient]
Acetate [Skin Conditioner: Vitamin E]
100 = H2O: Distilled Water
Opted to NOT use glycerin as humectant. We use Glycerin Kosher 99.7% in our
transfer glues (adhesive applied to the brown core designed to grab 1st
sheet of paper towel/toilet paper during mfg process) and I DON NOT like the
stickiness feeling. Went with a skin moisturizing humectant package instead.
basic patent information & discussion post comments (thank you @Perry,
@Pharma, @em88, @Belassi to name a few) for guidance. I think it’s a solid
formula but will test this and other options once our lab opens back up. Please
educate me if I’m heading down the wrong path.
