The CDC recommends using alcohol-based hand rubs with greater than 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol in healthcare settings.

According to the FDA, alcohol (ethanol) is denatured either by the alcohol producer or at the point of production of the finished hand sanitizer product. Denaturing is critical because there have been reports of adverse events, including deaths, from ingestion of hand sanitizer. Most reports are for unintentional ingestion in young children. To illustrate the importance of using denatured alcohol and, according to an FDA analysis of data provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Association of Poison Control Centers surveillance team, calls to the National Poison Data System in March 2020 related to hand sanitizer increased by 79% compared to March 2019. The majority of these calls were for unintentional exposures in children 5 years of age and younger.

This Coloplast Isagel Hand Sanitizer is a 4 Fluid Ounce Bottle containing 60% Alcohol Denat.
