FDA's new subject about the Alcohol Hand Sanitizer Wet Wipes

Alcohol Hand Sanitizer Wet Wipes

Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends soap and water hand washing as the most effective way of removing dirt, bacteria and viruses from your hands, this method of washing is not always convenient or possible. 

Food and Drug Administration Food Code Rules and Regulations classify the active ingredient in any hand sanitizer as a food additive requiring approval before inclusion. Before granting approval, the FDA looks at factors such as composition and properties, amount, health effects and safety. It only verifies that the ingredient is safe to use. Effectiveness depends on factors such as the context in which you use the product and the type of dirt or microorganisms you are trying to remove. Health care workers, food service workers and the public are classifications used to determine effectiveness. Chemicals react differently according to the composition of the dirt or microorganism commonly encountered within each classification. Despite marketing claims from alcohol free hand sanitizer manufacturers referring to their products as 99.9 percent effective against common bacteria, germs and fungi, the CDC remains unconvinced. In a May 2010 teleconference, Katherine Ellingson, with the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion at the CDC, explained that the CDC does not recommend non alcohol based hand sanitizers in health care settings because they are to non effective against certain types of bacteria. In response to the effectiveness of non alcohol hand sanitizers against influenza germs, the CDC says only that these types of hand sanitizers be useful. A side effect of more frequent use can be an increase in effectiveness. Alcohol free hand sanitizers are non drying, non irritating and remain on the skin longer before evaporating than alcohol based products. Alcohol based sanitizers can have a drying effect on your skin. Overly dry skin can result in painful cracking that also provides an environment for germs to enter the body. Consistent use of alcohol based sanitizers can irritate the skin, causing you to use them less often. Benzalkonium chloride, the active ingredient most often used in non alcohol hand sanitizers, is also a common ingredient in antiseptic solutions, cleansing towelettes and baby wipes, lending some degree of credibility to claims of effectiveness.
