Critères d'achat d'une solution hydroalcoolique.

Making a wise purchase of your hand sanitiser solution.

Where can we find hydroalcoholic solutions and in what forms do they come?

Hydroalcoholic solutions come in many forms, depending on the quantity you require. For larger volumes, there are cans and tanks. For personal and immediate use, they are typically available in pump-bottle format. To choose your hydroalcoholic solution wisely, you can purchase them from supermarkets. According to the standards of large-scale retail, their products are checked before being sold. Buying from a pharmacy is the most favoured option. Moreover, pharmacists have the ability to prepare solutions according to the formula prescribed by the W.H.O. However, as far as possible, avoid making online purchases. This is because you will not be able to verify the product until it is delivered to you. From another perspective, you can still place orders with a few major brands.

To what extent is the hydroalcoholic solution effective?

There are numerous hand hygiene products available on the market. To ensure that you are using an effective hand sanitiser against viruses, the following information should be readily available to you. Governed by the European standard EN 14476, these solutions undergo standardised tests before being marketed. They must meet the standard of eliminating microorganisms such as fungi, bacteria, and viruses. According to the A.N.S.E.S., gels and hand sanitisers must contain a minimum of 60% alcohol to be effective against viruses. When it is not possible to wash hands with soap, a hand sanitiser can be used. Hand disinfection is necessary each time one has touched a surface that could have been contaminated. Hand sanitisers fulfil their role well by ridding hands of viruses and bacteria. However, the role of soap is more comprehensive.

Purchasing a solution or making it yourself, which is more advantageous?

The significant advantage of purchasing a hydroalcoholic solution is that it is immediately ready for use. All you need to do is thoroughly check the contents on the label of your bottle. Once you have started using it and if the product has met your satisfaction, you may consider sticking with the same distributor or brand. As for the homemade solution, the preparation takes a bit of time between purchasing and manufacturing. However, you will have the assurance that the ingredients you have used truly meet the required standards. No matter where you purchase your hydroalcoholic solution, its composition is paramount. You just need to pay attention to the packaging. You now know what needs to be done.
