Nothing Beats the Original Hand Sanitizer
As the inventors of PURELL® hand sanitizer, we have been leading the world to a new way of keeping hands clean since 1988. Everything we have done and continue to do is rooted in science and innovation.
Our scientists carefully select ingredients that are perfectly balanced to work in harmony. This ensures our hand sanitizers not only kills germs, but also maintain or improve skin health, and deliver an impression that is pleasing to the senses (no one wants a sticky, smelly hand sanitizer) so you can be confident you made the right choice.

When people see the PURELL® name, they expect an experience that is safe and effective. That’s because every PURELL® product that leaves our facilities is manufactured according to strict FDA safety and regulatory standards, and using only high-quality ingredients, and has passed rigorous testing. That’s our promise to you.
Even during unprecedented demand, the PURELL brand stayed true to our promise, committing to the standards you have come to trust. The FDA has issued warnings about hundreds of hand sanitizers with ingredients of concern or contamination* and is rolling back temporary emergency guidance that loosened manufacturing rules – and through it all the PURELL brand continues to deliver safe options for families and businesses everywhere.

70% Ethyl Alcohol
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol when soap and water are not available. We’ve exceeded those requirements to offer better efficacy – our products work harder to kill the most germs. The active ingredient in our hand sanitizers is 70% ethyl alcohol which kills 99.99% of germs that may cause illness4. We source from suppliers who offer ethyl alcohol at the high quality necessary for over-the-counter drug products. Most of the ethyl alcohol used in our PURELL® products is plant derived.

An Optimal Experience
If active ingredients were all it took to make hand sanitizer, we could just rub ethyl alcohol on our hands and call it a day. But the PURELL® brand knows it’s not enough to just get rid of germs – we also have to take care of hands. That’s where our carefully selected inactive ingredients come in to play. Research shows the effectiveness of non-alcohol hand sanitizer varieties can be negatively impacted by the addition of ingredients like fragrances and skin conditioners.5,6 But alcohol-based formulations, like PURELL® hand sanitizers, are less sensitive to such additions. Our inactive ingredients complement the ethyl alcohol base to ensure an optimal, balanced experience that maintains effectiveness.

Inactive Ingredients that Help Maintain Skin Health
A well-formulated product kills germs on your hands that may cause illness and evaporates quickly, while leaving moisturizers behind to nourish the skin. PURELL® hand sanitizers have been developed for use in high-frequency settings and maintain or improve skin’s condition. As a leave-on product, hand sanitizer shouldn’t remove skin lipids (which strengthen the protective barrier of skin and keeps it soft) even with repeated use. Removing skin lipids can leave skin feeling dry and looking dull. PURELL® hand sanitizers do not remove skin lipids.

It’s Pleasing to Use
In addition to its overall germ-kill, we also recognize the unique sensory experience of hand sanitizer. Every aspect of its use is important. How it pumps, how it feels and smells, and how it makes hands feel afterward are all concepts we consider when developing formulas.

Denaturants to Deter Misuse
PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer contains denaturants, which are unpleasant-tasting ingredients that make the products undesirable to drink. According to the FDA, young children, especially toddlers, may be attracted by the pleasant smell or brightly colored bottles of hand sanitizer7. Using denaturants helps ensure hand sanitizer is not accidentally consumed or ingested.
Hand sanitizer should never be ingested, but it can be used safely on hands by everyone, including those who are pregnant and children (although you should always supervise children younger than 6).
