Hand Sanitizer Total Quality Assurance

The outbreak of COVID-19 has reinforced the significance of regular hand sanitizing and cleaning practices among consumers.  Governments and health organizations further promote personal hygiene awareness in order to fight the virus.

As a result, many brands, retailers and manufacturers are joining the effort to help combat COVID-19 by producing hand sanitizers.

Hand sanitizers meant for consumer use are regulated in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as over-the-counter antiseptic rubs and wash products. Hand sanitizers reduce levels of microorganisms by killing them chemically, just like disinfectants kill germs on environmental surfaces. Hand sanitizers must be effective within a brief period of time to produce the necessary outcome. 

Some manufacturers may find it more demanding to set up a qualified cleanroom for hand sanitizers production and to build effective and standardized operation flow while complying with various standards and requirements.
