  • 5. Now slowly add required quantity of Hydrogen Peroxide and Glycerol manually.(Use Safety equipment while handling Chemicals)
  • 6. Start stir till around 10 minute
  • 7. Measure the concentration of the final batch it should be as per the formulation composition described above and transfer to the Sanitizer storage tank.
  • 8. Transfer sanitizer liquid to bottling unit.

Testing procedures

  • 1. Purity of ethanol is checked by GC analysis
  • 2. Hydrogen peroxide concentration measured by titrimetric method
  • 3. The sanitizers are tested for antimicrobial activity based on contact time with sanitizer and reduction in log count of both gram positive and gram negative bacteria and Bacteriophage (virus stimulant)
  • 4. NABL accredited lab conduct product testing and provide certificate of analysis

Regulatory Approvals

For the manufacturers of sanitizers in India, a license is required from the state excise and FDA. The sanitizer would need to be certified by NABL approved laboratories. (There are 106 NABL accredited labs in India.)

For manufacturers outside India, appropriate certification for manufacturing and distribution needs to be obtained from regional regulatory authorities.

General Safety Recommendation

  • 1) The flash points of ethanol 80% (v/v) is 17.5°C special attention should be given to proper storage in tropical climates. Production and storage facilities should be ideally air-conditioned or cool rooms. Open flames and smoking must be strictly prohibited in production and storage.
  • 2) Consideration should be given to the risks associated with spillage onto floor coverings, including the risk of pedestrian slips – it is important to deal with spillages immediately.
  • 3) Use of Personal protective kit for safety.
